Meet the Owner


Charlie Phillips grew up in Drexel Hill, PA and now resides in Glen Mills, PA. He spent most of the 1980’s living in Boston while getting a B.S. degree in Philosophy and Geology from Northeastern University. He moved back to Philadelphia and got a graduate degree in Environmental Science from Drexel University. For 18 years, he worked as an environmental consultant.


Sometime around 1996, a spiritual transformation of sorts began for him. Among other avenues, this new journey led him to yoga and bodywork.


“I have sought knowledge and wisdom through academics and analysis. I have sought physical conditioning through a variety of athletic endeavors. I have sought spiritual connection through a myriad of external stimuli. Each of these paths has provided me with invaluable experiences from which to draw… or not. Through yoga, I experience what seems to be the purest distillation of physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional clarity that seem to emanate from both within and without. Yoga reminds me that I am always a beginner.” “At Barefoot Yoga and Massage Studio, it is my intention to expand and enhance my own personal practice, and to begin to give back what was and continues to be so freely given to me. I welcome each of you to practice and share with us the unfolding of your own journey.”
