April Nunes Tucker PhD
Founder of Big Dog Little Dog

April Nunes Tucker has been teaching yoga for over 20 years. She has a PhD in dance with expertise in human movement analysis.

In 2014 April founded Big Dog Little Dog to provide a way for parents and children to bond through yoga based practices that moved beyond the old-fashioned methods of  theatrical representation with children. April's unique Big Dog Little Dog curriculum allows you to be "real" with your child, embracing  your moods and energy levels in respect to your child's moods and energy levels whilst cultivating meaningful connection. 

April has also lectured in universities, worked in corporate environments and published numerous book chapters and articles on human connection and empathy.

BDLD FREE Bonus Course

by clare hasted
Loved it and your videos really made me smile with the love between you and your children. Thank you, I can't tick all the boxes the computer isn't recognising it. So although I have read all the sections and watched the videos it is not showing 100% x

Excellent, well presented, simple background and music make for a very gentle feel that allows the practice to speak for itself

Such a beautiful and inspiring course!

Thank you for this April! This course has given me so many ideas for my own family classes and it was so helpful to see how you move in and out of the poses with your children. You are so knowledgable but make the ideas very accessible for others to learn. Thank you!

Thank you so much April (and children), for your generous offering of this free bonus course. I was really moved by the videos of you and your beautiful kids, and would love to train with you in the future!

A gift that keeps on giving

by Cami Barausse
Dearest April, I write this to you all the way from Durban, South Africa. You have created something absolutely priceless and needed. I have been teaching child/parent classes for over a year, and the connection made between them in that 1 hour is extraordinary and I will definitely in-cooperate the knowledge and ideas you shared with us here in my classes from now on. For those moms or dads out there who would just like to get an idea of how to work with your child in this way your bonus course really does do wonders. I think you have generated a beautiful gift. Cannot wait to see the full manual! All the best and Namaste Cami

Big Dog Little Dog Demo Course

by Kelley Quinn
April—thank you so much for sending the demo course! It was fabulous to watch you 'play yoga' with your children, and brought back so many lovely memories of me playing with my daughters when they were this age (now 17 and 20!). The deep connection and trust your son and daughter display in the videos towards you (and vice versa) warmed my heart—and I cannot wait to share this work in my community with parents and their wee ones! I have no doubt that it will be well-received.

Hi April, you created such a wonderful manual for BDLD. PDFs and videos work nicely together, your explanation is clear, your voice is so calming :-) You can feel the nice relationship you have with your kids from that and you can see how the kids enjoy it. In the Connect part, when you do belly breathing with Grace, I would move the camera more down, so we can see the whole Grace's body. It would be nice see how the people trained on line take it and transform it into their own lessons :-) Jitka
