Meet Amanda May
A spinal fracture from a horseback accident when I was 12-years-old combined with scoliosis left me in a lot of pain at an early age. My passion for understanding myself and others led me to complete my Masters in Psychology at the University of Southern California. In 1994, I began practicing yoga and meditation, and it changed my life. It helped me to alleviate my own pain and begin to understand the mind-body connection. There is an intimate and inextricable connection between what we think--emotionally, intellectually and spiritually--and how it is reflected in our bodies.
Good health is about the whole person--body, mind and spirit. It is more than a number on a scale or a blood pressure reading. I have years of experience mentoring others, and I’m a Certified Integrative Health Coach trained at Duke Integrative Medicine. As adjuncts to this, I teach meditation, mindfulness and mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR). I'm also a Reiki master and energy healer. I'm passionate about sharing the knowledge and experiences that have changed my life with others. I believe everyone can create a life of health and vitality.
I'm the mother of two teenagers, and I live a life of challenge, stress and joy. I've been married for over 20 years and have lived and worked all over the world. I bring my practice into everything I do to help maintain my own balance and wellness.
"The fact is that there is nothing more beautiful,
more worthy or more conscious than YOU." -Yogi Bhajan
