Billi Jo Murphy is the founder and owner of Peace Warrior Yoga and Wellness Center. As a young adult Billi Jo discovered the benefits of yoga as a fitness practice and quickly realized yoga’s greatest gift as a tool to overcome profound feelings of pain, loss, anxiety, and isolation experienced as a result of numerous hardships suffered over the course of her life. Through a consistent practice she developed a sustainable sense of clarity, focus and peace, as well as the strength to transform her life – pursuing and achieving dreams she never would have previously imagined possible. After almost 30 years as a trained healthcare professional, Billi Jo was inspired to create a community dedicated to empowering others to transform their lives through yoga and other complementary wellness practices.
Billi Jo is a certified yoga instructor (RYT 200) trained in the Hatha tradition with experience in various other styles. She prefers to teach a “fusion style” of yoga, custom blending each practice to create a unique healing experience easily accessible to students of all levels. She also offers specialized Trauma Sensitive Yoga classes. Billi Jo believes her greatest responsibility lies in ensuring a safe, judgment-free, non-intimidating environment; she welcomes students to “come as they are” and encourages them to find themselves while finding their own unique practice.
Billi Jo has chosen to open Peace Warrior Yoga and Wellness Center in her home community of Point Pleasant where she resides with her children and dog. A proud single mother to two brilliant teenagers, she credits her children as being her greatest teachers as they inspire her to become a better, stronger, more loving person every day. Off the mat she can be found out in nature, behind a camera, attending live music events, or enjoying time with family and friends.
Billi Jo is also a Certified Professional Coach recognized by the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, Reiki Master, AromaTouch Therapist, Sound Energy Healer, and Intuitive Oracle Card Reader.
