Strengthen, lengthen and tone your body in just 4 weeks.

also love and accept your body again (or maybe for the first time ever).


MerryBody is the first health program that I’ve fully completed, EVER!
And to top it off I was sad when it ended. Normally I start challenges and never get through them, but MerryBody is completely different. I was inspired, supported and motivated by Carla and Emma as well as the community. I felt like I was truly a part of something special, instead of just a number and even though it’s called Merry ‘Body’, my mind and soul also benefited so much from this experience. MerryBody is MAGIC!Kate, student from MerryBody 2


MerryBody is a 4 week program that combines Yoga, Pilates and body positive mindset to completely change the way you work out – AND how you feel about yourself.

Designed to bring you joy and create the confidence you’ve always wanted. PLUS motivation to actually do the Yoga and Pilates workouts!

MerryBody is for everybody with modifications for all fitness levels.

A self-paced program that you’ll always have access to!

Why do you ACTUALLY exercise?

To work off last night’s dessert or pre-burn calories so I can eat all the pizza, chips, lollies (aka the weekend binge).
To see the number on the scales get lower.
I HAVE to workout, otherwise I’ll feel guilty for days.
Because every time I look in the mirror I point out everything I hate… more exercise will get rid of that muffin top.

Don’t worry…. we’ve been there before, when exercise feels like punishment.

But here’s the problem when you exercise as a form of punishment…

It feels YUCK! It makes you angry. It makes you sad.

It feels like you’re making up for not being ‘good enough’ and this impacts every moment of your day, every relationship, every choice.

You end up feeling terrible every time you put on your gym clothes (if you make it that far) or when you think about your next exercise session.

But guess what? It doesn’t have to be that way.

Imagine if you could exercise AND have fun at the same time? Imagine if you exercised because you LOVE yourself? Imagine if you could stop obsessing about the number on the scales?

We’ve got good news for you… keep reading!


Exercise doesn’t have to be a form of punishment to your body. It doesn’t have to be a chore that you tick off on your never ending to do list.

When you decide you want to get fit it can be really hard to find an exercise you actually love. PLUS the whole idea around trying new things can be scary. 

It’s easy to believe more is more… the more hours you spend on the treadmill the fitter and thinner you will be. The more weight you lift, the better the results.

To make things even harder, we’re surrounded by a social media driven world that promotes self-hate and comparison, rather than self-respect and acceptance. 

We get it. We used to believe all of this. We used to be in an obsessive whirlwind of fad diets and twice-a-day workouts.

If we ate more than a certain amount of calories or didn’t spend minimum 2 hours at the gym, we felt guilty for days. 


We found a better way to workout that connects the body, mind and soul. The best bit? You’ll ACTUALLY want to do it (we can guarantee: FUN!).

We turned our self-hating reasons to exercise into ones filled with self-respect and self-love. We changed our mindsets drastically, it took practise, it took a bit of work BUT it was all worth it.

We finally love exercise. We are FINALLY friends with our bodies and we’re beyond excited to share everything we’ve learnt with you.

Yoga and Pilates was the game changer. As soon as we attended our first class we felt the magic.

The magic of connecting body, mind and soul. The magic of community. The magic of working out as an act of LOVE, not an act of HATE.

Slowly but surely we began to create loving relationships with exercise and our bodies. We started to feel confident again… not just because we could wear singlets but because we felt strong.

We felt SO good that we knew we had to share this. We trained at Essence of Living Academy with world class trainer, Michelle Cassidy, so we could bring our Merry Yoga and Pilates inspired classes to YOU.

So who are we? We’re Emma and Carla (aka the Merrymaker Sisters)

Real life sisters, bliss followers, health coaches and Yoga/Pilates instructors.

We’re on a mission to merrymake over the world. AKA help you live a healthy, happy, magic filled life. 

We’ve tried lots of different ways to exercise to get fit and be happy. We’ve spent years figuring out the keys to true confidence.

We found our magic in Yoga and Pilates… but not just any Yoga and Pilates. We had the best results when we had fun, laughed and surrounded ourselves with people on our side, friends who celebrate our successes.

Now, we’ve wrapped it all up into our newest program, MerryBody.

Our wish for you is to learn to LOVE your body. To find an exercise that makes you smile and create the confidence you’ve been dreaming of so you stop saying no to life.

Our wish is that you say YES! Yes to the beach! Yes to the date! Yes to the dress! Yes to the interview! Yes to LIFE!

This is what MerryBody will do for you.


Introducing MerryBody:
our 4 week self-paced Yoga and Pilates program for your body, mind and soul (oh, and it’s actually fun).

Your MerryBody transformation begins today!

Experience Merry Yoga and Pilates inspired classes that you’ll always have access to.
Receive the tools and mindset switches we use everyday to transform our self-hate to self-love.

But it’s not just about the physical movement, there is so much more to MerryBody.

The game changer to create your new loving relationship with exercise and your body is your mindset.

You’ll get access to weekly audio sessions with us, where we’ll give you our exact action steps we use daily to create a consistent body positive mindset.

All of these sessions will come from our very own personal experiences. We’ve felt the power of mindset changes, from scarcity to abundance, from negative to positive, from fear to love.

We can’t wait to share these with you. This is the kinda stuff we’ll be talking about…

  • how to detox your mind from negative thoughts.
  • how to create self worth and respect.
  • how to go from feeling like you’re not good enough to fully accepting exactly who you are.

In the MerryBody Alumni Facebook, we’ll be there to answer all your questions as well as check-in to keep you feeling motivated and on track.


By the end of the 4 weeks you will discover the magic of Yoga and Pilates and find your inner confidence to FINALLY accept your body!


Here’s how the MerryBody program has already transformed lives…

It’s the most effective program I’ve ever participated in!
MerryBody has been the most effective program I have participated in to improve my health and fitness in a very long time. Emma and Carla do a wonderful job describing proper techniques and the sessions are designed for a variety of fitness levels.

The best part of the program is the encouragement and enthusiasm of Emma and Carla!Betsy, student from MerryBody 1 + 2

It’s low impact but a damn good workout at the same time!
I love that MerryBody can be done at home, anytime even in my pyjamas if I want. I love the burn after a Pilates session and the refreshing stretch after yoga. I love learning new positions. I love the breathing techniques and I find myself breathing better throughout the day. I love that it’s a low impact exercise but a damn good workout at the same time. I love that Emma and Carla have fun and make it fun and easy to follow. I love that I’m feeling more flexible. I am grateful for having found Merrybody it’s what my body and soul needs. I love Merrybody.
Lynda, student from MerryBody 1 + 2

Prior to MerryBody I had been struggling to get back into exercise…
Prior to MerryBody I had been struggling to get back into exercise after the birth of my eldest. I felt I had lost the use of my body and had the idea that exercise had to be done in a particular way and time that was never available to me. Post MerryBody I am exercising regularly at all times of day and night. I am sometimes interrupted but I am able to get back into it again. I am able to move my body in ways that I have never had the ability to such as downward dog. I love that the workouts are quick and easy to do anywhere anytime with no setup required (I have been known to do many in my PJs). Thank you for giving me and my family the precious gift of exploring movement again.Caitlin, student from MerryBody 1 + 2

It’s made me feel love and appreciation for my body.
MerryBody has made me feel love and appreciation for my body (something that I have never felt in my life), from doing this I am choosing foods that nourish it and make me feel good. I feel stronger and more flexible and am moving my body in a way that I enjoy! Emma and Carla’s enthusiasm for life itself is infectious!Kristi, student from MerryBody 1 + 2

No matter what you try, you just can’t get motivated to stick to a healthy lifestyle.

You’re sick of putting off your life because you’re worried about what you look like and what other people think of you.

I’ve discovered the number on the scales is irrelevant.
MerryBody is the first and only exercise routine that I have been motivated to continue with. But MB is so much more than an exercise routine. It is a lifestyle change. It is a mindset change. I’ve bought myself a bikini that I may actually wear in public for the first time since I was a teenager but I have no idea whether I’ve lost any weight as I haven’t stepped on my scales in months… this is because through the MerryBody experience I have discovered that the number on the scales is irrelevant. It’s not about how much I weigh or how I look but about how I FEEL and I feel stronger, happier, calmer, more motivated, more peaceful and more content in my body than I have ever felt.Missy Moo - student from MerryBody 1 + 2

I am a better mother to my kids.
I had the best time doing MerryBody. I learned so much more than just doing an amazing Pilates and Yoga workout. Spending time focusing on my mental wellbeing was what I had been missing for so long. Now I can feel joy and gratitude every day, by changing the way I think and finding the positive in every moment. I am perfectly imperfect though and sometimes forget, but it doesn’t take long for me to remember to focus on the now, and to let go of any negative emotions.

I feel like I am being a better mother to my 3 gorgeous kids, now that I have spent time on myself and knowing how to let go of stress and negative influences in my life.Maree - student from MerryBody 1 + 2

I feel so free and strong. A new #MerryBody!
Working with Carla and Emma this year, as their Doctor, has been such a delight. They immerse themselves completely in their search for their best and truest selves. I see their diligent seeking for knowledge and their bravery in pushing past the discomfort into a new level of wellbeing. The results they have created are inspiring. I get to see the data. I’ve also loved being their student in pilates and yoga classes. We laugh.. and often I cry and moan and complain. But as much as it hurts a little, the endorphins are a beautiful reward. I feel so free and strong. A new #Merrybody thanks to my beautiful Merrymakers. Dr Rachel Wyndham

Here’s how the MerryBody program has already transformed lives…

Being on the mat is now an absolute delight!
Thank you so much Em and Carla for my amazing MerryBody experience. I absolutely love your program. Your enthusiasm and love for your work truly shows. I’ve seen my life change in many ways since starting MerryBody. MerryBody is the perfect way to love your body from the inside out and show self love on a daily basis!

You ladies make ‘being on the mat’ an absolute delight and it’s now an absolute non negotiable daily! Tamara, student from MerryBody 1 + 2

I’m a happier person all round!
The MerryBody program came up at a perfect time in my life. I had gotten myself in a rut and started to be a negative Nancy. I was doing no exercise and grabbing for the bottle of wine all too often. The program reminded me of gratitude and a positive mindset. I needed to chose me! With a husband and 4 busy children it is easy to find excuses why not too. Since joining the program I joined a gym, whilst still doing the pilates and yoga the girls offer. I am a happier person all round.Dionna, student from MerryBody 1

I’ve been getting compliments from people in my life that I am looking healthier!
I seriously love everything about MerryBody! I signed up for it to try out Pilates and yoga but I got so much more from it. The workouts are so good!

There are modifications, so even a beginner like me can do it and I didn’t feel any shame in having to do modifications. Emma and Carla provide individual support too which is just amazing! Physically I feel stronger and more flexible. I’ve noticed my posture has improved and I’ve been getting compliments from people in my life that I am looking healthier.

I also lost 5 pounds just from doing the workouts twice a week and making a couple of Merrymaker recipes each week. Usually it’s a huge struggle for me to lose any weight and with this losing weight wasn’t even my goal.

My favourite part of MerryBody has been the mindset shift. Between the workbook and the mindset sessions I have really noticed a difference in the way I think. Practicing gratitude makes me so much happier. Everything in MerryBody has motivated me to start really working on some personal goals of mine.

The program has just been amazing! I have really changed my relationship with food and exercise. I now look forward to exercise and find it fun! Sometimes I actually even crave a certain workout! I’ve been telling pretty much everyone who will listen about MerryBody. People probably think I get paid to talk about it 😂 but no! it’s just when something is this good I can’t keep it to myself!Nicole, student from MerryBody 1

It gives you both a great mindset and a great workout!
I love MerryBody as it’s not just a program about working out your body by doing Pilates and yoga… but also working on your mind, so you can get in the best headspace to get the most out of your workout sessions and also take the learnings from it all to your everyday life. It’s great to have an awesome workout but if you don’t have the mindset or motivation to do it then there is no point. Merrybody gives you both a great mindset and a great workout Martine, student from MerryBody 1

I’m ready to begin my MerryBody transformation!
