Anita Anderson
Anita Anderson
Anita completed her 200 hour yoga training at Yoga North in 2012 and enjoys making yoga accessible to others through teaching. Anita has found following the path of yoga to be life enhancing. The practice of somatics and the classic postures leads to more freedom and awareness in the body along with a connection to the purest part of the self. The study of the Yamas and Niyamas (yoga’s ethical system) brings more ease to work, life and relationships and provides for more peaceful living. Yoga also allows for even more enjoyment of favorite activities, such as spending time in nature.

She encourages students to foster self-awareness, relaxation and breath because-- the way we show up to our yoga practice is often the way we show up to our lives-- skills in the physical, mental, and emotional body can be developed at the mat.

Mary Bue
Mary Bue
Mary Bue RYT 200 received her certification at Whole Life Yoga in Seattle WA in Viniyoga. Viniyoga builds strength, encourages circulation and links breath to movement. Mary is quite fond of this form of yoga and came to it after dabbling in many different styles since 1998. The main aspect of Viniyoga that Mary finds benefit from is its use of the breath as the medium for movement. Around the same time that Mary was deepening her yoga practice as a teenager, she also began developing as a touring and performing singer-songwriter. Yoga has helped to bring balance, focus, and more creativity into what was a fast paced and over-stimulating lifestyle of travel and gigs. An avid runner, Mary finds that yoga keeps her relatively injury-free and helps with concentration. Mary returned to her beloved Duluth during the summer of 2011 and is thrilled to be a part of the vibrant Yoga North community. The treasure trove of classes and learning opportunities at this studio are bountiful and she is happy to share a style of yoga that hasn't yet made a big mark in the Midwest. Her hope is to help students find a deeper connection to their breath and invite them to feel more at ease in their body, which is perfectly one-of-a-kind.

The blending of Eastern and Western traditions allows her to better support bodies to their optimal level of wellness.

Stephanie Mullen
Stephanie Mullen
Stephanie completed her 200 hour teacher training program at Yoga North in 2013, after five years of personal practice. She grew up in Duluth, and recently returned after some time in Minneapolis and Thailand. She has a new love for northern Minnesota after being introduced to the hiking trails, the boundary waters, and hidden nooks along the lake. What started as a pursuit of physical fitness grew to something much larger and more meaningful as she experienced yoga and studied the philosophy. The ability to bring stillness to the mind and the connection of the breath to the body have improved all aspects of her life and have inspired a greater passion for practicing and teaching yoga. “Because you are alive, everything is possible.” -Thich Nhat Han
Teri Sanders
Teri Sanders
Teri has been practicing yoga since 2000 and is currently working toward 500 hour certification through Yoga North. She moved to Duluth in 2008 and loves living here because there's so much to do - on the beach, the lake, the ski trails, hiking trails and mountain biking trails - it's truly an inspiring place to live. Teri believes it is important to follow one's passions, and is particularly passionate about adapting yoga for physical disabilities, therapeutic benefits of yoga for mental health diagnoses and applying yoga to be more efficient and free in recreational sports activities. She truly enjoys bringing yoga into all aspects of life - bringing the physical practice into outdoor/sports activities; and bringing the philosophical and spiritual practices into work-life, relationships and being the best person she can be in the community by (in the words of Swami Rama) "loving all and excluding none".
