Jhon Tamayo is founder and owner of the Atmananda Yoga Sequence studio in NYC. JhonT, as he’s affectionately known, used his passion for teaching yoga and his over 20 years of experience as a practicing yogi, to design the Atmananda Yoga Mat™.
JhonT is dedicated to helping his students learn yoga poses with precise form and alignment, in order to protect their joints and ligaments. And he is very committed to helping his students grow mentally, physically, and spiritually, both on and off the yoga mat.
The Atmananda Yoga Mat ™ is a patented (#USD699980) and trademarked design. It’s made of a robust Jute material and natural rubber, so it’s better for your body and is eco friendly.
JhonT’s motto is: “don’t just practice yoga for today, protect your ligaments and joints, and practice for a lifetime!”
Claudine Arthurs, Atmananda Yoga Mat Co- Creator
Business Development Manager
Claudine is a yoga enthusiast, entrepreneur and marketing consultant. She returned to New York in the summer of 2012, after traveling solo throughout South East Asia and enrolled in yoga teacher training at the Atmananda Yoga studio. Claudine fell in love with Jhon's method of teaching with alignment lines on the yoga mat and saw the potential in it as a stand alone product. So she suggested to Jhon that they work together to develop and help spread the benefits of the mat to people everywhere...the rest as they say is history!
Claudine's motto is: If you can dream it, you can be it!
