ABOUT APRIL LU

April’s first three years of yoga practice were very much a casual affair. Like many, she turned to yoga only for “stretching” after her intense weight and resistance training. But one day in 2016, she magically felt a strong sense of presence on the mat. It was a feeling of immense concentration, but it was also mentally relieving. She didn’t understand then but kept on showing up for classes to learn more. “Show up, do the work and trust the process” is a motto that she lives by. April also enjoys the therapeutic elements of yoga, both physiological and psychological, especially in today’s fast-paced world.

Coming from a corporate background, she encounters a lot of people struggling with procrastination, fatigue, headaches, shoulder issues and back pain due to stress and poor body-mind awareness and connection. She feels a responsibility to share her practice and influence those who can benefit from yoga.

For April, yoga goes beyond asanas or the physical practice – more importantly, it is about holistic well-being and mindful living. Through asana practice, we strengthen our physical body. Through pranayama (breathing practice), we tame our mind. Through yoga philosophy, we learn to be non-judgemental and kind. Through mindfulness, we eat better, sleep better, think clearer. Eventually, we cultivate joy to enjoy life fully, inside and out. 

“We practice yoga not to get better at yoga but to get better at life.”
