In the spring of 2008, TanO took his first yoga class. It was not a life changing experience. However, he continued to take classes throughout the DC area and as his practice grew more consistent, something started to shift. TanO began to evolve physically, mentally, and even spiritually. After spending a ‘life changing’ week at a Synergy Yoga retreat in Tulum, Mexico, back in 2009, TanO set a goal to become a certified yoga instructor. In March of 2010, he found a home at a local yoga studio serving part-time at the front desk. Here is where TanO’s journey into teaching began.
TanO taught his very first yoga class in September of 2010. It was the most scary, exciting, and fulfilling experience ever – and in that moment, he had discovered a new path. TanO completed his 200hr certification in 2012. Since that time, TanO has devoted himself fully to the life practice of yoga. TanO has led and/or participated in several yoga events, trainings, programs, and workshops through the years which have all allowed him to evolve exponentially as a student, and teacher. Some of his most rewarding work has come through youth yoga programs in public and charter schools as well as various community outreach organizations.
TanO’s classes are energetic and interactive, playful and powerful. TanO is an extra-ordinary being who explores the inner path – he invites other extra-ordinary beings to join him. More about: TanO Mazi Yoga.
