Alix Northup

Alix began her path of yoga as a teenager when her mom brought her to a yoga class as an alternative treatment for her scoliosis. The practice has stayed with her for over twenty years. She draws from her own experience of finding balance in her body and mind to assist others on their own unique path of yoga and healing.

Alix is registered with the Yoga Alliance at the 500 hour level. She received her 200 hour training with Prananda Yoga in 2007, and completed 300 additional hours of training with Tias and Surya Little of Prajna Yoga based in Sante Fe, New Mexico.

Alix is certified as a Prajna SATYA teacher (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement). SATYA is a somatic floor based practice developed by Tias Little that complements yoga.

Alix completed her Yoga for Scoliosis teacher certification through senior Iyengar teacher Elise Miller, and continues to study yoga for backcare and scoliosis with Deborah Wolk from NYC.

Alix attended massage school at the East West College of the Healing Arts and graduated in 2008. Her interests in Eastern modalities led her to Thailand where she discovered the art of Thai yoga massage and studied at the Thailand Massage School in Chiang Mai, Thailand. She has since studied with Allison Lurie of the Baan Jai Center for Thai Massage. She has taken multiple in depth trainings in Craniosacral therapy through the Upledger Institute.

Alix’s sense of adventure along with her interest in Buddhism and the draw of the mountains first led her to Nepal, where she fell in love with the friendliness of the Nepali people and the beauty of the Himalaya. She has since returned several times and is currently working with Himalayan hermitage, a pilgrimage retreat company based in Kathmandu founded by Sisse Budolfsen, to bring students to Nepal on Yoga Pilgrimage retreats.

Alix is passionate about her work and continues to learn by taking classes, workshops, and through the experience of working with her clients.

Alix finds inspiration and solace in nature and spends her free time exploring the outdoors through rock climbing, hiking up mountains, skiing, and surfing. At home she enjoys gardening, cooking, playing music, and resting in savasana.

Peya, Alix’s cattle dog companion, is usually at her side or nearby and is often a source of humor and comfort during zoom classes in the studio.
