Returning To Our Roots

Runa Yoga has always been passionate about meeting our community right where they are, whether deep within the woods, next door in local Duluth shops, or up the Northshore for an unforgettable retreat. It's time to experience wellness in every adventure, regardless of location!


That is why we are happy to tell you Runa Yoga is coming out of the studio and on the road this new year, 2023! We have outgrown our need for a physical studio space and will now be found in complete collaboration with our community, offering our yoga services at varying Northland locations. Thank you for joining Runa Yoga on our adventure back to our roots and back to our community!

Michelle Cartier

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.
