Founder of Rising Force Records, Malmsteen Management and Medusa Cosmetics, April Malmsteen, who is Yngwie Malmstten ‘s wife has recently launched a new website. We discovered there is no relation between her new website and metal, especially Yngwie ‘s music.
April stated in her new website: “Despite my reputation as a hardworking businesswoman and a entrepreneur, health and fitness and positive energy are also of great importance to me. I seek wellness, balance, and health, in both the mind and body.
In my experience, fitness stems from more than the being in the gym. As important as working out and developing your body is, I focus more on the overall enjoyment that these activities can bring me. Whether it be water skiing, dancing, tennis, pilates or kayaking, having fun is key to a good fitness regime.
Yoga has been described multiple times as the meeting of the body and the soul. As my life can be very hectic, meditation aids in steadying the senses, and regular practice can help encourage focus, discipline, energy and awareness. It is of importance to develop your outer world, you must first stabilize your inner world.”
The story behind of the meeting of Yngwie and April is an interesting one. Check out April Malmsteen‘s answer to WiMN when she was asked about their meeting:
“Twenty-five years ago in a nightclub, in London, England. I had no idea who he was; all I knew was that he wouldn’t leave me alone, he insisted that we were meant to be. “You don’t understand, I want to marry you, this is love at first sight,” he kept saying. He took off his ring and presented it to me; I laughed and thought he was charming but still wouldn’t give him my phone number. Instead, I had him give me his.
I called him, and we went out on a very innocent dinner date. He was very polite and respectful, even though he still insisted that it was love at first sight and that I would even be his wife one day. I laughed once again, thinking to myself that it might just happen one day, but it certainly was not going to happen then. We eventually ended up going our separate ways.
Six years later, I was the owner of a modeling agency and was invited to an opening of an art gallery, which was located inside of a high-end hotel. He just happened to be staying there at that hotel for one night. We saw each other and our eyes met when I peeked out of the window of the hotel. He was coming into the hotel that very second and well…let’s just say the rest is history.”
