Julie Phillips-Turner, RYT, AYS, Y4C

Founder of Chesapeake Yoga & Wellness, I discovered yoga and meditation in 1990, and found that it profoundly helped me to focus on studies and become a more organized and grounded person. In 2008 two family members were diagnosed with cancer, my yoga practice was my source for comfort, strength and mindfulness to handle life’s difficult moments. To me, yoga is a powerful therapy for both mental and physical well being, and not just a great physical workout.

20 years after first discovering yoga, I earned my 200 RYT certification - twice, and continue to pursue therapeutic yoga education and training that can help others with everyday issues.

In addition to RYT certifications, my studies also include Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist (AYS) certification with Kathryn Templeton; Para Yoga master courses with Rod Stryker; Boomer+ Yoga for seniors with Amy Kraft; Ashaya Yoga Therapy with Tod Norian; Yoga for Arthritis with Stephanie Moonaz; Yoga for Cancer (Y4C) teacher training with Tari Prinster; Restorative Yoga with Cindy Lee, and Yoga for Trauma and PTSD .

As a Certified AYS, I have a deeper understanding of my client’s mental and physical needs though the practice of Ayurveda when developing a one-on-one specialized yoga program. As a Usui and Karuna Reiki Master I’m also able to help others reach a deeper level of relaxation and understanding of how important our personal energy is for maintaining good health.

Outside of yoga I'm an avid sailor, and also enjoy kayaking, tennis, skiing, bicycling, stand up paddle boarding, art and photography -- I enjoy blending the mindfulness of yoga with these and other activities! 

Certified as a SUP Yoga Teacher I bring my knowledge of yoga to the board to show students how to experience new ways of practicing yoga.

My style focuses on developing mindfulness though breath awareness and proper alignment. I also mix various styles of creative movement, restorative techniques and powerful sequencing of poses so students realize the ultimate experience in relaxation and awareness in the moment.
