I have worked for several years in North Carolina teaching at the Carrboro Yoga Company and at the Durham Yoga Company. My style is inspired by multiple traditions and I am passionate about bringing yoga & mindfulness practice to under-represented communities.

I received my 200 hour teaching certification from Carrboro Yoga Company and I am E-RYT 200 certified with Yoga Alliance. I trained with Sage Rountree and I am certified in teaching Yoga for Athletes, and you can read more about that here. I was also a student of Paul & Sommer Sobin of Thousand Petals Yoga in their Anusara-inspired immersion program. I have studied with mentors Alice Joanou and Kate Holcombe. I completed my certification with the Prison Yoga Project in the summer of 2016. I also trained with Healing Yoga's Advanced Cancer Care program at Commonweal in 2015.

For the moment, I am only teaching with the organization The Art of Yoga Project , bringing yoga and mindfulness practice to teenage girls in the California juvenile justice system. 

 

 

TESTIMONIALS:

I totally enjoyed Alix’s approach to the normalization of slightly different postures depending on how my body felt. I’ve been to a few yoga classes and always hear “listen to your body,” but I haven’t experienced the tender way she pulled out the specifics of how our bodies might be talking BEFORE our minds could fixate on the issue. In the past, when I’ve gotten shaky, I peer around the room at others to see if I’m doing the pose correctly, and my mind is pulled out of my space and practice. I assuredly found Alix’s class to be the most centering of any I’ve attended.

I really liked Alix’s style— gentle, not overly philosophical or “preachy”, and effective in teaching the practice. Is there anyone else who is like her? She was quite helpful at a difficult time for me two years ago— though she didn’t know it; I’d softly and joyfully weep much of the time I was in there because of the space she made for me to find myself in the midst of the physical pain of beginning to learn the practice and while dealing with personal struggles.

It was my first ever flow yoga class and I enjoyed it immensely. Our teacher, Alix, was absolutely a joy - what a lovely class! Plenty of clear direction, but also a clear message of loving kindness for bodies that may not be bendy yoga goddesses!
