Yoga for Runners

We’ve partnered with Runa Yoga for our upcoming 2019 Spring, Summer, and Fall sessions.

Yoga for Runners is a great way for runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes to gain flexibility, balance, and core strength. The movements in each class help to release tightness in common problem areas  for runners.

Yoga for Runners is also perfect for everyone from yoga newbies to more experienced yogis. Run Yoga instructors provide multiple modified options for each pose, allowing participants to push themselves to the degree they feel comfortable pursuing. Classes become progressively more challenging.

The sessions attract a variety of ages from 15 to 75. Usually, at least several men are in each class — so don’t be scared gentlemen!

About the Instructors:


Jessie Erickson

As a dancer, yogi and teacher, Jessie Erickson always knew she was meant to help facilitate change in the world. Since the  age of three Jessie has immersed herself in dance and, later, Pilates. Through that she has honed a great sense of body awareness. In 2005 she discovered yoga in the lush jungles of Costa Rica and it has since become her daily path. She brings kindness and nurturing to her classroom, which creates an environment that fosters growth through curiosity. Jessie believes that we can make the world a better place by making our individual lives better. She hopes to enlighten and lighten those around her through a fun, imaginative class designed to help build strength, flexibility and concentration in a non-competitive environment.

Michelle Cartier

Co-owner Michelle Cartier has been practicing yoga for approximately 12 years. She is a certified instructor as a 200 RYT with Yoga Alliance and a graduate of Yoga Center of Minneapolis. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Exercise Physiology with an emphasis on Cardiac Rehabilitation from The College of Saint Scholastica. Cartier has been employed with Essentia Health for over 12 years in the department of cardiology. In addition to her work in the healthcare system, Michelle has also been a passionate supporter of the local farming community and sustainably produced food systems. She has served on the Lake Superior Chapter of the Minnesota Sustainable Farming Association for four years, two of those years as board president. It is her strong belief that optimal health and wellness is achieved when the mind and body are both treated as one and supported through an active and healthy lifestyle.
