April began her yoga practice in 2008 as a preparation for surf camp in Costa Rica, but fell in love with yoga and only fell in-like with surfing. She was drawn to the tenets of Jivamukti Yoga – the emphasis on ahiṃsā (non-harming) and śāstra (scripture). Her yoga practice sustained her through her corporate career. Handstands in hotel rooms helped alleviate the demands of an intense travel/work schedule.
In 2013, April attended the Jivamukti Teacher Training at Omega Institute.
She completed her 800-hour apprenticeship with her mentor Gayatri Sandhi Ferreira in 2014, and received her Advanced certification in January 2015.
She also is certified to teach Aerial Yoga through Aerialmukti Yoga, and teaches regularly at Jivamukti Jersey City.
