ABOUT OUR MISSION

The Atmananda Yoga Sequence is a modern vinyasa style practice that is rooted in traditional disciplines. The Atmananda Yoga Sequence created in 1994 by Founder Jhon Tamayo with the intention for students to better connect to their body and breathe, allowing individuals to own their personal practice, reaching a moment of inner stillness any place, any time. After having graduated over 2,000 + students and with the desire to help his students maintain a safe and consistent practice, Jhon T. became inspired to design the revolutionary Atmananda Yoga Mat ™, transforming how yogis around the world achieve their perfect pose. The Atmananda Yoga Sequence is globally recognized and has been taught internationally across the globe from Japan, Dubai, China, Germany, Sweden, Colombia, and the United States. Jhon T. with his enigmatic presence and dynamic teaching style offers a once in a lifetime experience for each individual to awaken towards their inner truth. The Atmananda Yoga Sequence mission is dedicated to inspire individual growth, embracing our unique qualities and building self-empowerment towards knowing our inner teacher within. Our on-going immersion programs for 200 Hr and 300 Hr Teacher Training are taught at our New York City HQ, E. 23rd Location and South Beach, Miami. We look forward to welcoming you to our community in our various locations.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER JOHN TAMAYO

founder-jhont

John Tamayo was born in 1967 in the south of Colombia. At the young age of 13, he left home in search of his true self. John T. began traveling throughout South America, where he had the opportunity to meet and embrace countless people, with whom his experiences would later prove to be pivotal in his journey to discover a deeper understanding of life in a raw, organic form. In 1987, after completing two years of military service in Southern Colombia, he moved to New York City.

While living in New York, Jhon T. became interested in understanding his own mind. He was looking for answers about destiny, freedom, and inner peace. Through spiritual talks with his personal friend, Guru Baba, Jhon T. was introduced to Scientology, which he continued to study for ten years. He was fascinated by the simplicity of Guru Baba’s spiritual wisdom and performed selfless service to him in order to learn more.
