April Smith

April whole-heartedly embraces yoga as a transformative path to awaken to our best selves and live fully with joy, intention and compassion.

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.



April Smith instructs the following:

    Class will incorporate the full range of yoga practices: postures, breath work, meditation, self-inquiry including the use of sound and gesture to strengthen our connection to deeply transformational experiences.

  • Vinyasa: Vigorous
  • Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to the breath, is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you to flow from one pose to the next in time with an inhale or an exhale.

    Vigorous yoga offers disciplined and challenging practices that help you to build endurance, strength, flexibility and fortitude. Our vigorous classes welcome all who are seeking physical and emotional fitness.
