What are people saying?

Feels good to move


"Since Merge I have seen so much change. It has given me the confidence to start moving again, the reminder that exercise does not have to be painful, and has also has given me the permission to trust my body. I have such a better sense of balance."

Game Changer


Merge has become a lifestyle change for me, ever since my level one training. The knowledge learned has me flowing through simple and dynamic movements in a mindful way. My shoulder is forever stronger and more capable of doing the things I love.


Merge has been a game changer for me on a business level as a studio owner, and a professional level as a yoga instructor. My students love the new things I learned in Level 1 and how it makes them feel, the results were so quick and apparent that we often have people become studio members after just one class.
