Yoga Therapy for
Health Management

BEYOND YOGA POSTURES

My integrative approach blends traditional yoga therapy practices with elements similar to physical therapy, occupational therapy, and/or mental health therapy. We will explore root causes of pain and distress, and can even assist with complex health conditions. We begin with a full 2 hour initial intake and assessment lesson to discuss your medical history, current lifestyle needs, and health goals. The result is a safer, more effective regimen.

  • Relieve Neck, Back and Joint Pain

  • Realign Posture and Balance

  • Reduce Anxiety, Depression and Stress

  • Improve Digestion, Circulation, and Energy

Bodywork and Energy Balancing

BEYOND MASSAGE ROUTINES

By intuitively sensing the needs of your body, I can blend a variety of bodywork techniques to affect soft tissue or deep tissue. For example, I may incorporate stronger touch for those experiencing deep muscular tension, or light to no touch for those with high level sensitivity and pain (such as autoimmune conditions, recent injuries, or surgeries). The intention is to calm the nervous system for a deeper sense of vitality at the cellular level.

BODYWORK MODALITIES

(May be combined as part of your yoga therapy or health coaching sessions. Initial session is 2 hours with full intake.)

  • Myofascial Release

  • Assisted Stretching

  • Thai Yoga Massage

  • Sound Therapy

Health Coaching

BEYOND DIET AND EXERCISE

It may go unrecognized that one poor lifestyle habit can significantly affect a seemingly unrelated health condition. For example, back pain may be exacerbated by dietary choices, neck strain from work-related tasks, and anxiety from unhealthy sleep habits. Often it’s not just WHAT you do, but HOW you do it. I can serve as an extra set of compassionate eyes and ears to help you recognize the patterns and provide tools and techniques to shift from feeling chronically depleted to increasing joy, peace, and love.

MY STORY

 

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.

TESTIMONIALS

 
 
Before I met May I was anxious, short tempered, and stressed out. My neck and lower back were in constant pain. Within the first month of visiting May I noticed immediate improvement in the pain levels in these areas. Today, I am pain free, my mind is focused and I am grateful every day for the gifts both big and small that the Universe provides.
— Lupe I, Pet Care Owner

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

May is aMAYzing. This is how to learn yoga. A step at a time. Sequentially. Less chance for injury. I love that May does a complete assessment or body inventory so that she understands how best to approach your workout.
— Marie P, Financial Manager
