"YTT with Runa and Sutra Seekers was transformational for me, as a student, a teacher, and a human. From chanting to sequencing, meditation to asanas, this training surpassed my expectations in every way. I truly believe that yoga teacher training has provided a road map for me to live my yoga in a world that needs us as teachers more than ever. Runa and Sutra Seekers have guided me to go beyond 'doing yoga' into 'being yoga.'"


"Teacher Training at Runa Yoga was like climbing the second mountain of my life. I did it! Although midway through the training we switched to a virtual platform, this worked really well in achieving my goals: to deepen my own practice, to become more knowledgeable in all things yoga, and to become comfortable guiding a yoga class. Living your life as a dedicated yogi is a lifelong pursuit, and Runa Yoga Teaching Training was just the beginning!"

Michelle Cartier

Runa Yoga

I have always held a strong belief that optimal health and wellness are achieved when the mind and body are supported as one. I am grateful to be a lifelong student of yoga and for the opportunity to share that passion with others.


Miriam Hanson

Runa Yoga

I believe in the power of yoga to transform us out of the daily minutia and self obsessions to bring us freedom through breath, asana, and spiritual practice. It is a gift to teach, and I continue to learn from the beautiful yogis

who show up to

every class! 


Brittany Belisle

Sutra Seekers

I was introduced to yoga as a wild, competitive teen in 1999. The choice to buy a one-way ticket to India and take a Yoga Teacher Training class altered my entire life path. I am honored to share what I have learned in India with the people right here in Duluth.

I unexpectedly fell in love with yoga while pursuing a career in NYC as a professional dancer. Yoga has shaped me, transformed me, and I am so honored to be able to share and grow with my hometown, the community of Duluth, Minnesota.
