My study of yoga began as a teenager, when my mom brought me to my first yoga class after discovering I had scoliosis. I draw from my own experience of finding balance in my body and mind to compassionately assist others on their own unique path of healing and discovery.

Alix is wonderful. She is calm, considerate, and has the perfect energy to be leading the mindful trips that she does. I am so grateful to her for everything she taught me, and for organizing our trip to be in such a sublime locale. Our hosts at Coastal Mountain Sports Haus were over-the-top wonderful in caring for us. They made incredible meals and gave us a lovely experience in every way. It was a privilege to be on this trip.

Everything was great...the accommodations. the food, the ambiance. The best part was Alix's thoughtful, gentle practice with all of us. I would not change anything. I would go again.
