May Mei Chong


May Mei has been practicing yoga since 2001 and is an avid student of Iyengar Yoga. She is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher at the Introductory II level and has traveled to Pune India to study with the Iyengar family. In her teaching, she promotes the understanding of yoga poses and its benefits through achieving the correct alignment of each pose, as she believes that her students can benefit more from the physical practice of yoga by understanding what the poses are doing for them.

She is grateful to have the opportunity to study with teachers like Ramanand Patel, Kathy Alef, and Leslie Howard. May Mei is also a graduate of Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco(IYISF) 500-hour Teacher Training, Judith Lasater’s Basic & Advanced Restorative Yoga Teacher Training and The Yoga Loft’s 200-hour Teacher Training and Leslie Howard’s Pelvic Floor Teacher Training. In continuing her studies, May Mei assists Kathy Alef in her ‘Continuing Back Care’ classes at IYISF.
