April Penland

Bikram, Vinyasa, and Yin Teacher 


April began practicing Bikram Yoga in 2007 when her husband Andy brought her to her first class. She became a super dedicated student, completely transforming her body, mind, and life. In 2016, April made the huge decision to leave her full-time job as a high school Latin teacher (yes, this lovely lady is fluent in Latin) and attended The Yoga Factory’s 26&2 Hot Yoga Teacher Training. She has since also attended The Yoga Dojo’s 200hr Vinyasa and 50hr Rocket Yoga Teacher Trainings, as well as Ida Ripley’s Yin96 Teacher Training. April loves yoga, writing, reading, listening to music, hanging with her nieces and nephews, and movement in general. She can often be found after-hours at the studios hand-standing and yoga-ing. Her favorite posture is Standing Head to Knee, because she has learned the most from it. If you are looking to deepen you yoga practice, April is a great resource and makes herself available for her students as often as she can!

I love watching students feel better and benefit from this practice that I love so much.
