The Youngest Yoga Teacher In California Is 11 Years Old And In Sixth Grade


You’re an 11-year-old, fifth-grade student with two options:

  1. Go on a trip to Europe
  2. Take a 200-hour yoga teacher training course

Uh…I don’t know about you, but I know which one I would have done!

But this is no ordinary kid.

Tabay Atkins (son of former NFL player Larry Atkins) opted for the yoga teacher training after his mother asked him this question.

Tabay’s mother, Sahel Anvarinejad, began doing her own certification as she was recovering from non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He would frequently attended classes with her and immediately fell in love.

“He chose training without hesitation,” Anvarinejad told ABC News. “He said, ‘Mom I want to do this too. I want to teach people so yoga can help them the way that yoga helped you.'”

After that, Tabay officially became the youngest person ever to complete the YOGAthletica Teacher Training, and he now teaches three days a week! His classes are donation-only, and the proceeds go to charities helping families with cancer.

This kid is the bomb.
