MOVE, BREATHE, MEDITATE ... repeat!
Are you ready to love your body, think more clearly, and live with more purpose?
My mission 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 attitude 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. I have a skilled eye for detail and discerning intuition where I 'get' my clients quickly. 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!

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 Pain and Chronic Disease Symptoms
My specialized therapeutic yoga approach blends modern therapeutic modalities with traditional practices to help you relieve physical pain. For those with more complex medical conditions, reduce symptoms by rebalancing 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.
Assisted Stretching and Energy Balancing
I offer myofascial release and Thai Yoga Massage to relieve deep muscular tensions. We can reach the cellular level by clearing energetic blockages with sound healing and craniosacral therapy (very relaxing and great for those with autoimmune conditions or highly sensitive systems).
Stress Management w/ Mindfulness Practices
Practice guided breathing and meditation to manage anxiety, depression, trauma, or addiction. Meanwhile, integrate a mindfulness practice to implement healthier lifestyle habits around work, relationships, diet, exercise, and/or spiritual understandings for more purposeful living.
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, health conferences, corporate wellness seminars, and non-profit community centers.
Driven by my passion in yoga therapy, re:YOGA Therapy + Wellness, boutique yoga therapy studio, was born to serve private clients, companies, and rehabilitation 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
