Why do we get sick? How could we remain healthy? Why do we have ego? And what is the meaning of life? Yoga Valo (means Yoga Light in English) is a monument and a gesture of gratitude for my wonderful Light experience. I would like to put that Light and Energy to the body and soul of every single person, to all the dark parts of human life.

Read the whole story

I am originally from Vietnam and I spent my childhood in the middle of gruesome Vietnam war. I came to Finland at the age of 13. One night my father left home because of the war and I was left alone with my mother in Vietnam to wait my father’s return. My childhood changed completely after that night and I got more than enough traumas. That wonderful day finally came when we were connected to my father again after many years. We had already thought that he had died in a refugee camp. We were able to go to Finland. I still remember the smell of incredible white snow. We thought that everything would be OK now when we were all together. Then the normal daily life started: foreign culture and language, with no safety net around us and awful feeling of missing home land, friends and relatives.

I became an entrepreneur, I had a lot of work and responsibilities. At the same time my father got cancer and died from it very fast. My mother died soon after that because of sorrow. In order to forget the sorrow I worked even more and burned out – I wanted to escape this world. One night I saw a big, bright and beautiful light ball outside my bedroom window. I don’t know when it had appeared there but it helped all the sorrows to come out in the form of tears. It was very therapeutic and purifying, I was a different person after that experience.

As a gratitude for this light experience I wanted to dedicate the rest of my life helping other people, as I was notified and blessed as a form of the Light. I started studying health related issues: massage, nutrition, acupuncture, yoga. With the help of these I realised the secret of life and health.

Why do we get sick? How could we remain healthy? Why do we have ego? And what is the meaning of life? Yoga Valo (means Yoga Light in English) is a monument and a gesture of gratitude for my wonderful Light experience. I would like to take that Light and Energy to the body and soul of every single person, to all the dark parts of human life.

  • I have tried many sports, e.g. crossfit, spinning, body pump, but hot yoga beats them all. It’s a very diverse form of sport as in addition to physical fitness it develops also balance and flexibility. In addition to doing hot yoga myself I booked a private class to my employees and they liked it a lot, too.

  • Bikram Yoga is a great aid in stress management. No matter how stressed I was before the yoga class the stress always stays in the yoga studio, and after the class my mind is nice and light.

  • I tried hot yoga for the first time in Hani’s class and the results were amazing: I lost weight, energy levels increased, blood pressure got back to normal and type 2 diabetes will also be totally gone soon. I also love the peace and joy after the meditation during the class.
