My vision is to make yoga...
...accessible. If you are brand new to yoga, lack flexibility, or have existing injuries or medical conditions, consider private yoga therapy lessons. Rest assured that my advanced training and unique approach to movement will be able to accommodate your needs and help you overcome such limitations.
...enjoyable. I realize that some may find yoga uncomfortable or intimidating. With the right attitutude and approach, yoga can be extremely enjoyable and rewarding. My goal is for my students to look forward to practice rather than a chore on the 'to-do' list.
...effective. Your time and energy is valuable and I take pride in offering highly effective personalized lessons. Get more out of one private session than months of practice in group classes.
I value each and every one of my students and I look forward to serving your wellness goals!
May Che, Yoga Therapist + Instructor
Practices Included in Your Private Yoga Training:
Depending on your conditions and goals, a combination of the following may be a part of your yoga regimen.
Reduce Chronic Pain and Disease Symptoms
My specialized Yoga Therapy training blends modern therapeutic modalities such as physical therapy with traditional yogic practices to help you realign the musculoskeletal structure. Meanwhile, we work to rebalance your nervous system to facilitate your body's natural healing process.
Physical and Mental Conditioning
I tailor the routine to your unique body to help you effectively and safely tone your muscles, stabilize major joints, and increase flexibility and mobility. Moreover, we will integrate yogic principles to improve mental focus and brain health for complete mind and body fitness.
Manage Stress with Mindfulness Practice
Utilize yogic breathing and guided meditation to reduce anxiety, stress, depression, or addiction. Incorporate a mindfulness practice to manage day-to-day stresses. Upon request, I may serve as a guide to help you plan and implement healthier lifestyle habits for more conscious living.
Assisted Stretching and Energy Balancing
I often incorporate Thai Yoga bodywork and myofascial release to assist in releasing tensions when needed or requested. Meanwhile, enjoy unique and relaxing experiences such as sound bath and craniosacral therapy to relieve energetic blockages at the cellular level.
Yoga is so rich in tradition and science that I’ve spent over a decade practicing, studying, and sharing its philosophies. With a one-way ticket, I journeyed 2 years internationally through several countries including many parts of India, living and learning in ashrams and training centers.
While continually honing my skills and experience working with diverse populations and needs, I’ve been fortunate enough to teach in a variety of settings including rehabilitation centers, doctor’s offices, corporate wellness seminars, and non-profit community centers.
Driven by my passion in yoga therapy, re:YOGA Therapy + Wellness was born to also serve companies and rehab centers in the community. My goal is to never stop exploring the therapeutic effects of yoga and find ways to share what I’ve discovered along the way.

“I have been studying yoga in classes for a few years, and have taken many private sessions before, but May takes intelligent and precise yoga to a new level. Her personal attention to detail and correct alignment is phenomenal. Her yoga sessions are fun, yet challenging and informative, and the time just flies by. Enthusiastically recommended!” Ken W., Photographer
