Meet Tabay Atkins


At 14, Tabay Atkins was the youngest certified yoga teacher in America. He was featured on ABC World News, Good Morning America, 60 Second Docs, The Harry Connick Jr. Show, The Doctors, and in Yoga Journal—to name a few. In 2018, he taught at Deepak Chopra’s Meditation and Yoga retreat, and also taught Kim and Kanye (he had no idea who they were!). He was a favorite teacher at the all-donation yoga classes at his mom Sahel Anvarinejad’s yoga studio in San Clemente called Care4Yoga. If you’re lucky, you might also catch a yoga class with Tabay at the Lululemon store or in a park on one of his many trips to Hawaii. Other places in the world where he has been flown to teach yoga include Dubai, Japan, and Australia. These days, at the ripe old age of 17, you can find Tabay's name and face plastered across his popular food truck in San Clemente. Tabay's Mindful Kitchen features recipes made by the young man himself.

"Our journey with yoga has introduced us to so many great lifestyle choices. A big one was veganism." -Tabay
