Tabay’s journey with yoga started when his mom was just 2 weeks cancer free and he was just 6 years old. She had just joined a 200 hour vinyasa yoga teacher training. After having cancer and going through intensive chemotherapy treatments, she could barely walk. She was broken down physically and emotionally. Tabay was by her side during her training, and noticed how much yoga was helping her feel better both physically and emotionally. In just a short couple of months she was able to walk again on her own and was happier and healthier than even before she had cancer. Tabay knew right then and there that he had found his dharma and wanted to become a yoga teacher so he could help heal others the way he saw yoga help heal his mom.
He has since been on numerous television shows, radio shows, magazines and newspapers, teaching for Deepak Chopra and hundreds of his guests, celebrity clients, featured on the cover of the Yoga Journal Magazine, and so much more.
Tabay and his mom soon after became vegan, and have since started sharing their culinary skills with people around the world by teaching vegan cooking classes, both in person as well as on his online yoga and vegan cooking subscription series, tabayatkins.com
Tabay has accomplished so much in his young life, including graduating from High School 3.5 years early, at the young age of 14, with a straight A, 4.0 GPA.
Tabay’s passions are teaching and practicing yoga, cooking and baking, building LEGO, collecting rare and old coins and dollars, travelling, skateboarding, playing the piano, paddle boarding, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, hiking in nature, and spending time with family and friends.
His dreams are to continue teaching and sharing yoga and veganism all over the world, to write a cookbook and a book about his journey with his mom, to have a vegan cooking show, and to continue to inspire people, and spread love, peace, happiness and good health to as many people as he can, and to continue to donate money and his time to cancer patients.
The mantra that Tabay lives by and shares by ending all of his classes with is:
“Think Good Thoughts,
Speak Kind Words,
Feel Love, Be Love, and Give Love”
