MORE ABOUT APRIL DALY:

April spent her youth and young adulthood living the life of a ballerina.  It was there that she began cultivating the tools she would need later in life in her yoga practice.    Cultivating discipline and awareness of the subtle energies of the body, using music and movement as a focus inward while learning that the breath would calm the mind and body for rehearsal, performance, endurance, as well as longevity all, assisted her in developing the tools necessary for the yoga practice which is so dear to her today.  Dancing, for her, was like “trying to touch God..”

However, it was the birth of her child which opened her for the first time to experience the Divine Mother’s, unconditional love.   Shortly after, in 2003 she became a disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda studying and practicing Raja (popularly known as Ashtanga) and Kriya Yogas. Later, in 2009 adding the love of Asana (physical postures) as maintenance for the body she attained her 200hr teaching certification.  Currently, April is completing her Jivamukti Spiritual warrior class teacher training.  Along with conducting yoga classes, April is a Bodyworker and Energy practitioner and brings this expertise into all her classes.  April strives for kindness to all and has a knowing that we are all a part of the same Consciousness which is pure love and acceptance.

April enjoys assisting others in their yoga practice in the hopes to hold a sacred space for them to deepen their practice and perhaps even experience their own “touching God”.   Om Shanti Hari Om

Tanisha Sutton

Tanisha’s yoga journey began when she was an undergraduate student studying at university. Changes in her health coupled with anxiety over grades, relationships, and life in general, forced her to search for healthy lifestyle choices she could implement to help manage the stress that she was experiencing as a new adult. A friend of hers suggested that she attend some community yoga classes to help with the anxiety and increase her daily physical activity. Initially, she was reluctant and filled with all these false ideas about yoga and the people who practiced yoga. Like many others, she was concerned that her body type and lack of flexibility automatically excluded her from being a student. Curiously yet hesitantly, she journeyed on to her first class and began laying the foundation for a home and public practice that has supported her over the years.

On this journey, she has discovered that yoga has nothing to do with appearances nor is there anything, but an open mind needed to begin. She intends to provide you with a gentle yoga session that is safe, inclusive, and accessible. Her classes are an expression of self-love and are a deliberate choice to tend to ALL the parts of our being that are neglected, ignored, or disregarded during the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Through meditation, deep breathing, and gentle movement we will collectively share space to observe, rest and re-set. Tanisha is honored to share her practice with you and looks forward to seeing you on the mat!
