April L
   Being a wife and a mother of 5, April realized early on that taking time to practice yoga had many benefits, not just for her, but others around her as well.   Her classes focus on breathing, alignment, lots of core work and balancing of ease and effort.    April's 200 hour training was done at Shakti with Lisa Black.  She was fortunate enough to study with Ana Forrest.
  She believes every body can benefit from yoga.  and teaches chair yoga, and is constantly amazed at how the practice positively affects people.
  She lives by the philosophy that the best teachers of this practice , are the students of this practice.

I began practicing yoga in 2003 and was immediately taken with the benefits I received. On my mat I felt challenged physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, but I also had a sense of connection I’d never felt before. Since that first class, I began to face life’s challenges differently, coming back to my mat, sometimes after long absences, where I’d find a calmness, steadiness, comfort and a connection to self. In a recovery program since 1995, I absolutely love the way yoga and recovery enhance each other in my life! I became a certified yoga instructor in July of 2012, completing an intensive training at Konalani Ashram in Kona, Hawaii. Since then I’ve acquired certification with Yoga Behind Bars and Y12SR Yoga and 12 Step Recovery, received my Level I/II Reiki practitioner certificate and Level I/II Thai Yoga Massage certificate, and have taught over 1000 hours of yoga to bring my teaching credential to an EYRT-200 level. I continue to grow and learn from many mentors and wonderful teachers and I love sharing what I have learned with my students!
I love the practice of yoga, and I encourage all who attend my classes to honor exactly where they are on their own yoga journeys! I look forward to sharing the magic of yoga with you.

Kat S.
My yoga journey started in college and I was instantly hooked. I loved the feeling after a great sweaty class- renewed, refreshed, and rejuvenated! Once I found vinyasa yoga I knew I was where I belonged. I love the freedom in this style of yoga-every class is different! I believe that looking at life through the eyes of endorphins is a much happier, open, connected life. The beauty in this practice is strength & flexibility in mind, body, soul, and life. My goal is to challenge you physically and mentally to live a healthier, more fulfilled life all while listening to awesome music and having fun!
