Jill Crawford Murphey, RYT & Owner
Jill Murphey, the owner of yogaErie, discovered yoga years ago, but it wasn’t until after the birth of her fourth son that she dedicated herself to the practice. Yoga has transformed her life and she enjoys sharing her passion for the practice. Jill completed her 200 hour teacher training program through YogaFit, a Yoga Alliance approved school, in March of 2009. In 2010, Jill furthered her yoga education and training with Amazing Yoga in Pittsburgh led by Karen and Sean Conley, completing the Level One power vinyasa yoga teacher training. In March 2012, she traveled to Mexico for Advanced Teacher Training with the Conleys, completing an additional 100 hours training. Jill has traveled to Costa Rica for Amazing Yoga Level 3 training and yoga retreats with Amazing Yoga. She is very grateful for her training and support from Karen and Sean...Amazing Yoga was the inspiration for yogaErie!
Jill teaches a vinyasa style of yoga, focusing on flow, strength, grace and power, while at the same time encouraging students to respect their bodies. Her classes are challenging but she is able to offer modifications so that each student is comfortable and confident in each posture.
When she is not teaching or practicing yoga, Jill is raising her four boys, Charlie, Teddy, Harry & Archie, with her dedicated husband Craig. Jill also serves as Judge of Elections for her polling district in Fairview, and spends as much time as she can at Edinboro Lake with her family. Through yogaErie, Jill is able to share her passion with others in the hope that they too will find themselves transformed by the power of yoga.
