Dr. Melissa Knight, PHD, RN, MSN, CNE, RYT (Dr. K)- Researcher and Holistic Integrative Wellness Nurse, Certified Mindfulness & CBT Practitioner, Certified Stress Resilience & Spiritual Life Coach, Certified-Registered Yoga Teacher & Certified Reiki Teacher/Master 1, 2, 3, Founder & CEO of La Fe Solutions' Design & Wellness Center

I believe in living a life full of peace, contentment, joy, and gratitude. 

Life has provided me with many lessons and opportunities to unveil new levels of self-awareness and healing.  I'm grateful to have discovered total mind, body, spirit transformation through various ancient healing and stress relief modalities including a daily Yoga, Reiki and Meditation practice. The practices have changed my life, much like yoga has done years before. Meshing both Yoga and Reiki techniques have brought about incredible, almost unbelievable shifts. Though two separate entities, these sacred practices can yield significant healing effects when linked together.

I believe true healing & radical transformation involves connecting with the greater depths of one's true essence as a rich inner landscape of experience. 

I offer private yoga & Reiki therapy sessions for women combined with holistic health and stress resilience coaching to help my clients achieve a greater level of healing outcomes. I believe in taking my clients through small, realistic yet intentional steps so they can begin feeling better from the start of their healing journey. I invite you to join me in this journey of Yoga & Reiki Therapy to greater health and wellness as a holistic lifestyle.

Integrating Yoga, Reiki and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) Principles, Gentle Yoga Asanas with Breathwork, Meditation for Beginners 


Reiki is a Japanese energy modality in which the practitioner lays his or her hands on, or above, areas of the body to aid in healing. Reiki can heal on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. 


Yoga is far more than stretching and holding poses. As a holistic wellness and therapeutic practice, it goes much deeper. Yoga is a form of meditative movement and union of the mind and body.

Yoga & Reiki Therapy Combined

Yoga and Reiki can be used in conjunction or in isolation of one another, however when these two practices are combined they can yield powerful transformations.

A private yoga and Reiki therapy session is an opportunity to explore your unique physical, emotional, spiritual and energetic needs.

Yoga is an entry way as one begins to peel away layers of emotional challenges, or conditioning. Reiki works between these layers; opening one to receive healing energy where needed in the mind, body or spirit.  As each layer is removed one rediscovers their true core essence. The true Self; where liberation and self-empowerment unveil themselves.  

Through a 1:1 personalized experience, sessions are tailored just for you and your needs. Private sessions may include the practice of CBT, slow and gentle physical postures in conjunction with awareness of the breath, Reiki energy and guided meditation to help promote healing in your entire being and unlock feelings of healing, joy, peace, contentment, happiness and deep-loving connections to others.

A private Yoga & Reiki therapy session offers my clients a safe space to receive healing energy while practicing proper yoga form while alternating movement with deeper states of healing, calm and relaxation without the distraction of noise and crowdedness most common to the typical yoga studio.

With consistent practice of yoga and reiki, it can positively influence every aspect of your life and well-being.

Your personalized, private Yoga and Reiki therapy-holistic wellness program takes place virtually (online), or in person (local restrictions) with an appointment that fits your schedule.


How it Works

First, we will begin with a brief-complementary consultation call and a discussion about your lifestyle, health history, health concerns/issues, and personal goals for a yoga and Reiki healing.

Second, If we find that we will be a good fit working together, we will schedule an introductory appointment so that I can best assess your overall health and learn more about your physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual needs.

From there, we will create a plan to meet weekly, twice a week or three times per week depending on your schedule and goals.

I will craft a sequence of yoga poses and meditative-Reiki practices customized just for you.

We will evaluate your progress towards goals at each session and adjust as we go along if needed.

I typically ask my clients to commit to at least 4 sessions/per month to reap the most benefits.

To make this a pleasurable experience, it is suggested you have the following equipment for each session:

  • Yoga mat (or substitute with 2 blankets or large towels)

  • 2 Yoga Blocks (or 2 large hardcover books to substitute)

  • 1 Strap (1 belt to substitute)

  • 1 Bolster (Rectangular) or (1 or 2 large pillows or cushions, or 1 to 3 blankets or 4 large bath towels to substitute)

Cost of private yoga therapy combined with wellness coaching sessions vary, however on average my cost can range anywhere between $65 to $125 per 60 minute session plus mileage (where applicable). 

I offer affordable package plans depending upon the length of the coaching contract and number of coaching sessions:

Example coaching package: 

1 Session = $65/hour
4 Sessions = $239 ($21 savings)
