“All the best to you as you embark on this new chapter in your life. I want you to know how much I have loved our Tuesday yoga classes. You are an amazing teacher. Your messages at the start of each class have given me so much to think about, contemplate, dissect and learn from. Every yoga practice was fresh, expanding, and sometimes challenging – but always a Tuesday gift. Thank you for always giving of yourself. You’re an exceptional woman and I have been blessed to have you in my life.”

My fiance and I met April at one of her Doom Yoga sessions. Neither of us are experienced in yoga but both of us have a desire to learn and a love of metal. This class seemed like a good place to start. April was AMAZING! She gave clear instructions that were easy to follow and also gave great tips and personal attention to help us with our form. Never once did I feel uncomfortable or intimidated (feelings I have experienced in my past few attempts with studio yoga). I look forward to rocking more yoga with April in the future.

“I love Deep Dark Yoga! I feel a little out of place in traditional yoga settings, but with Deep Dark Yoga and it’s rock n’ roll aesthetic, I feel like I finally found somewhere I fit in. I’m new to yoga, but April made me feel super comfortable, and I left class feeling great!”
