Asa completed her 200-hour training in the jungles of New York City at Loom Yoga Center. She teaches vinyasa-flow inspired classes with a strong emphasis on meditation and alignment. She also holds an Advanced Degree in the Reiki System of Healing as well as meditation training in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition which help to inform and deepen her practice.
She is dedicated to helping others find their sense of self and facilitate a path toward growth and healing.
Her yoga journey and deep appreciation for the practice began in 1992 as a student at YogaWorks in Santa Monica, CA, where she was inspired by the studio’s innovative and now celebrated teachers, including Shiva Rea, Erich Schiffmann, Bryan Kest and Seane Corn. April’s yoga journey connected her in 1997 with master teacher Sara Powers and the integration of Vinyasa flow with slower, deeper styles of yoga and meditation.
April has taught Vinyasa and Yin yoga in New England since 1998. She completed her yoga teacher training with Sarah Powers in 2012 and completed her 200 hour Vinyasa YTT certification at Eyes of the World Yoga in Providence in 2015.
April’s precise but playful teaching style blends Vinyasa sequences, long-held “yin” postures, core strengthening, and meditation to create a dynamic and balanced yoga practice. Mindfulness techniques weave through practice to deepen relaxation and spark self-inquiry on and off the mat.
