"Runa Yoga's atmosphere is calm, relaxing and encouraging. Everybody is welcome and the classes are phenomenal. The instructors let you go at your own pace and you only have to do what you can do. The owners are some of the nicest people i've met and are truly dedicated to providing a great atmosphere and building a friendly community."
Meet The Owners
Co-owner Michelle Cartier has always held a strong belief that optimal health and wellness are achieved when the mind and body are treated and supported as one. She feels grateful to be a lifelong student of the practice of yoga and for the opportunity to share that passion with others. She holds space in her classes for students to explore the tools of breath + movement to peel away the outer layers and connect to themselves and the world around them on a deeper, authentic level.
Co-owner of Runa Yoga, Jessie Erickson, has over 12 years of experience as a yoga practitioner and over 10 years of experience as a yoga/fitness instructor. Jessie brings kindness and nurture to her classroom, which creates an environment that fosters growth through curiosity. Erickson believes that we can make the world a better place by first making our lives better. When she is not teaching, you can find Jessie either skiing or hiking with her family. Enjoying the laughter and joys that life brings.
