About Surya Yoga
“Surya” holds a special place in yoga, as it signifies the Sun in Sanskrit, an essential source of energy. Since ancient times, yogis have worshipped the sun through mantras, movements and salutations. It represents willpower, vitality and courage in life.
We decided on the name of “Surya Yoga” not only for this profound meaning but also to symbolize our aspiration to spread the light of yoga to every corner of the world and unite our community as one yogi family.
At Surya, we embrace the values of mutual support and uplift one another with peace, kindness, and love. We hold integrity, connection and authenticity in high regard, all while maintaining a lively and dedicated open-minded approach.
Starting from humble beginnings with a cozy neighborhood yoga studio to an established yoga licensing with 17 branches over Malaysia, Jo’s calling to yoga did not come easy.
At the very outset, Jo’s explicit objective is to spread the joy and benefits of yoga with her learning and experiences. As her yoga journey unfolded, spanning various countries in both practice and teaching, she came to realize the necessity for change to continually progress towards her goal.
With the strong foundation in traditional yoga knowledge, Jo has innovatively introduced her own concept, integrating new elements and techniques. Jo strongly believes that yoga is for everyone. Therefore, she embarked on a journey from the traditional yoga to the ultimate goal of wellness, becoming an integral component of holistic health, both physically and mentally.
