my faith 

for a better future

is in the people

who are turning the idea

of unconditional love

into a way of life

Jun Lee Yoga Teacher Costa Rica

Jun Lee is the founder of Tao Yoga School. It is an ever evolving global community who all share the common intention of connecting to their inner source - which is the source of inspiration and strength. Recognize that this terrain that you are swimming into is something that is a shared experience - and that all of us can gain access to this world. It's not about methods, it's about experience - and then embodiment.

Jun teaches an approachable, deep style of Hatha Vinyasa Yoga that safely challenges the body and soothes the mind. She has been leading Yoga Alliance certified 200 & 300 HR Yoga teacher trainings and retreats in Costa Rica and Italy since 2013 and is based in San Francisco, CA. This work is a guide for people to physically and symbolically heal, transform, and strengthen through diverse modalities - beginning with the breath. 

Jun is a dedicated student of Ashtanga, Kundalini Yoga, and TUMO meditation/breathing technique aka the Wim Hof Method - as tools to align mind-body, connect with our inner source of power, and illuminate and open hearts. An open heart and open mind is key. 

She is a registered nurse specializing in cardiology and has experience in Telemetry/Intensive Care Units in her hometown of Philly, PA (Thomas Jefferson University Hospital) and in San Francisco, CA (CPMC and UCSF). Her passion for teaching yoga and working as a nurse sparks from the desire to help others heal themselves and to radically transform in order to be happy and healthly. She draws daily inspiration from the Tao.

One challenging time for individuals can be after a transformative life retreat/training- how do you integrate a deeply immersive experience in nature and in yourself - and bring it back with you to your daily life? How do you integrate the yin and yang? How do you integrate these new practices into your old habits? How do you integrate two intense and seemingly opposing philosophies?

Carry the scent of the temple with you in the market. Surround yourself and stay supported with people who inspire you - find a common space where you can openly talk about your epiphanies and most enlightened moments, and also share the shadow side without worrying about who you're talking to. Give those moments context.  The support of a community is essential.

This is why it is a collective and not just a school - we create a global community and stay connected long after the retreat or training is over. 

A steady focus on breath, layered with alignment promotes an inner relaxation where you can drop the mind and feel.

Feeling is understanding.

In her class, you will breathe deeply, feel lighter, and move rhythmically into stillness.
