Teachers

ALIX NORTHUP
Alix believes the path of yoga is accessible to all people as a means of healing and inner exploration. She started her path of yoga as a teenager when her mom introduced her to her first Iyengar-based instructor as an alternative treatment for her scoliosis. Her teaching reflects over twenty years of experience and studies through various teachers and traditions of yoga, movement, bodywork, and meditation. Alix is a licensed massage therapist and brings a deep understanding of anatomy and hands-on adjustments into her classes. She specializes in yoga therapeutics, specifically back care and scoliosis, and teaches classes, workshops, and retreats both locally and internationally.

Alix finds inspiration and solace in nature and spends her free time exploring the outdoors along with her dog, Peya, through rock climbing, hiking up mountains, skiing, and surfing. At home, she enjoys gardening, cooking, playing music, reading, and taking naps.

STEPHANIE STARNES
Stephanie has been teaching yoga since 2004 and has had the pleasure of teaching in many different countries and cities, holding retreats, workshops, sound healings, and teaching/performing at many music and yoga festivals across the US. She hopes to continue to provide healing spaces and inspiration for others, helping them to feel welcome, supported, loved, and accepted exactly as they are.

She focuses on helping others find their connection to self, spirit, creativity, expression, love, and grief. She teaches her students to tap into the full spectrum of feelings and allow them to be more open in a world that is often so closed.

Stephanie grew up learning many healing tools and practices while also experiencing deep trauma. Through that darkness, she was able to find her light and her true passion, which allows her to hold space for others to feel safe, welcomed, and loved. To her, being able to move our bodies and breathe is a gift. Each day and each passing moment is truly all we have.

Through struggles, one can find their deepest treasures. Yoga has a way of connecting us to the light, and our own resilience. It gives us a space to listen, and to heal. The opportunity
