About Us

To find true north, a compass must be adjusted to make up for the discrepancy between what it shows as true north and true north which is disguised by the earth’s magnetic pull.

Like the false north shown on a compass, our egos often pretend to guide our lives, luring us down a path of its own choosing, ignoring the essence of our soul. Therefore a correction angle needs to be learned to stay on course.

We believe the ancient science of yoga is that correction angle. Yoga science provides tools and guidance to adjust your life to the true essence and evolution of your soul.

Find Your True North

We are committed to your systematic development in postures, breath, meditation, and towards the goal of knowing yourself. The studio provides quiet reflective space for this self-study and exploration. Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute (ISYI) in Duluth, Minnesota–known for Teacher Training and Yoga Therapy Certification– draws on unique techniques based on the Yamas & Niyamas and a progressive approach using somatics and therapeutic yoga, while bridging these techniques back to classic postures/asana. We also include Yoga’s sister science of Ayurveda in classes, workshops, and lifestyle.  We provide classes in a variety of styles– with more than 20 weekly classes and over a dozen instructors, there is a class to serve everyone– from pain resolution to athletic performance.
