April M. Portland, OR

About April

I am completely dedicated to helping my students find their body's full potential. I love exploring ways to work with each person's anatomy and make a technique, a movement, really work for the individual. I graduated Suma Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance from Marygrove College in Detroit and also hold the certification of Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher 200 Hour Training. I'm very focused on alignment and anatomy, and helping my students to really understand their bodies and how to use them for maximum performance and healthful longevity.

April really knows her stuff. I have seen her dance, and do yoga before. It wasn't till I took one of her classes that I knew she truly loved what she was doing. She is a great teacher. Before her class I have never taken a yoga class, now I take one once a week at a local studio. She is a great influence on everyone she teaches, and is very good with beginners, as well as all levels. I loved her flow class, and if I had fast enough internet I would pay for Skype lessons from her.

April provides the proper guidance to achieve what you want to achieve in a comfortable environment. I tend to do yoga by myself which is great, but when there's a new moving isomer that I want to learn, having someone there who knows what they're doing is key.
The over all feeling of comfort and non-judgement is what I read from when April is teaching and this provides a great experience.

April is a great yoga teacher! She has the patience for a beginner, but I've seen her make even most advanced students sweat. Her classes are always different and I can count on them to be challenging knowing that I'll leave feeling relaxed and completely blissful each and every time. April's soothing and calming voice guides me back into reality and I love her playlists. I would definitely recommend her.
