When Ayurveda meets Yoga: An unique yoga therapy to make you feel good

April Tsai

Founder and Lead Instructor

“Empower my clients to create true self-healing and share my dharma with them is the most rewarding gift I’ve received in my teaching career.”

April

April is a 550HR certified Ayurveda Therapist and Vinyasa/ Yin Yoga instructor since end of 2016. She began Yoga in 2008 and started teaching in Jan 2017. She has worked in multinational companies for over 15 years, specialised in Human Resource field and project management. She was born as an Empath and has been extra sensitive to people’s energies and emotions since childhood. Her special experiences had led her to continue with her Counselling skill training for 1 year in Hong Kong University. She came from living the busiest corporate world in Hong Kong. She understood how current modern life style can cause anxiety, depressions and a sense of loss with unrealistic expectations from outside world. Like everyone tried to thrive in a highly competitive environment, she couldn’t cope with her mother’s passing and work related stress. She collapsed in the office. Her true self healing journey began.

Fortunately she overcame her depressions with the help of Ayurveda Yoga Therapy and Meditation and believes that her mission is to share her direct experiences with others. She left her corporate job in Sept 2019 and started teaching full time. Her objective is to empower everyone she touches to awake their inner power to handle any challenges in life. She believes in a non-religion view to embrace all modalities without separating East to the West. She is also a very devoted Vipassana meditator and she meditates 2 hours a day everyday. She also follow Mindfulness trainings taught by Thich Nhat Hanh and continues participating in the Plum Village community.

April is a yoga teacher that truly wants to enhance the wellbeing of her students. Attending April’s class leaves me both calm and invigorated. Mind body and spirit. She is able to add to the practice through the way she interacts with me and the other students. Each class is well designed to allow me to further my own practice and the energy in the room is always amazing. She adds in her own nuances to the overall session that make it different from any cookie cutter style class. I would definitely recommend you try a class and see for yourself. five stars
