What’s in a name?

In Hindu philosophy, “turiya” is known as the highest of all possible states of consciousness... A state of ultimate harmony... One’s divine awareness. Turiya’s story is represented as the dot above the dash {ego} in the OM symbol.

Turi Nevin-Turkel, founder & director – Yoga came to Turi when she was living in the mountains of Colorado in early 2000’s. After years as a professional water skier and active outdoor recreational professional her body yearned for support and yoga was just what it was looking for. Now in Virginia, yoga is a part of her life as a mother, avid gardener, and where Turi finds joy in sharing yoga with others.

Today, yoga truly is a way of life for Turi. For Turi, yoga encourages day-in, day-out conscious living, nourishing the body from the inside out with movement and stillness. Finding a deep focus on balance through Yin yoga has become a big part of stability that she loves to share with her students. Turi brings to yoga the idea of mindfully deepening the connection with our body, mind, and soul, while expanding our vision to the world around us. Along with a strong dose of intention and attention, breath and movement, stillness and peace, a journey towards well-being is offered — one class at a time.

Turi is certified E-RYT 200, RYT 500, C-IAYT offering group and private yoga based instruction, mindfulness + mediation, yin yoga specialist, integrative wellness workshops and retreats.
