Sayong Kim started practicing in Korea at a Dahn Center (now known as “Body & Brain Yoga” in the U.S.), and within two and a half months experienced self-healing of painful sciatic neuralgia, a back condition that had plagued him for ten years. Inspired by his own amazing recovery, Sayong made up his mind to learn other Tao-based practices for self-healing and left his academic studies to become a Tao Healing Instructor.
Sayong worked for Body & Brain Yoga (formerly, “Dahn Yoga”) as a Manager, Instructor, Energy Healing Master and Program Trainer for several years and then in 2011 became the COO of Sedona Mago Retreat, a spiritual retreat center owned and operated by Tao Fellowship. Since that time, he has continued to meet people from all over the world and introduce them to the simple yet powerful healing modalities of the Tao Tradition. Showing people how they can enhance their health and happiness is Sayong’s passion and offers practical wisdom that touches all students of The Tao Healing Method.
He aspires to develop and establish Sedona Mago Retreat as one of the top US retreat centers based on Tao principles, practices, and The Tao Healing Method.
