April Puciata

April is honored to be a Senior ISHTA Yoga teacher and trainer of ISHTA yoga. Through this lineage, her studies, and teaching she hopes to inspire students to find what resonates with their individual spirit and tap into their unbound potential. Dedicated to the yoga practice for over 15 years, April Puciata’s initial desire to participate in a teacher training was not to be a teacher, but a student. The day after she finished the final practicum, April was laid off from her job as a manager at Random House after working in publishing for almost 6 years.  April completed her 500 hour teacher training under the guidance of Kavi Yogiraj Alan Finger, the co-founder of ISHTA Yoga with Mani Finger. She taught classes at ISHTA Yoga and YogaWorks in New York City for nearly a decade, as well as offering private sessions to a wide base of clients including The Museum of Natural History, Citibank, and a collection of actors, attorneys, Wall Street businessmen/women and movie directors. For the past 6 years, April has been teaching in Washington D.C. Her popular yoga retreats run twice a year to spectacular destinations such as Cuba, Italy, Mexico and Costa Rica. She has been a part of many teacher training programs, sharing her love and knowledge of yogic texts, the subtle body and chakras. Born and raised in New Jersey, April is now making her way home again and thrilled to be teaching in Hudson, Monmouth and Ocean counties. April has also studied with Shiva Rea, Sean Corn, and Mark Whitwell. She has completed prenatal certification with Janice Clarfield, Reiki Master Training with Brett Bevell, and has earned a Relax and Renew® Trainer certificate with Judith Laster. April continues to study with Alan Finger at ISHTA Yoga in NYC and is grateful for all of his guidance.  Also a graduate of the New School, April has an MFA in Creative Writing. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in literary journals as varied as New York Quarterly, Salamander and The New Orleans Review.  April believes we are always students and is grateful to all of her many teachers.
