Yoga and Pilates ain’t just for skinny fit girls


This was our old view. That Yoga and Pilates are for skinny and flexible people. Oh, how wrong we were! Really, this perspective was created from our own insecurities. And if you feel like this… we get it! We understand!

It was only through DOING yoga and Pilates that we could have realised this. That in actual fact, this way of movement is for EVERYONE… especially when the teacher focuses on technique, set up and alignment.

This is a huge focus during our MerryBody classes and inside the community. If you get your technique and alignment right, you’ll feel safe and empowered to do the moves. 

There’s nothing worse than doing something that simply feels wrong or even worse, actually hurts your body in a bad way.

It’s this reason we include bonus tutorials, just like the below, inside the Studio.


So you feel empowered and confident to roll out your mat every day, knowing you’re doing good for body. Knowing that you’re working out in a safe and transformative way. 

We even have a one week beginners guide for members who are new to Yoga/Pilates or want to go back to the basics and focus on technique.

Come and see what the MerryBody Online Studio is all about. 

When you join, experience the combination of Yoga, Pilates and Meditation to completely change the way you workout – AND how you feel about yourself.

MerryBody Online Studio will make you strong, flexible and toned. This is what naturally happens when you move your body.

But the real magic? It’s movement driven by acceptance, respect and above all… JOY.

And this is what makes MerryBody different.

We spent years exercising (and dieting) with the goal to lose weight. No matter what weight we started at we still had the same goal… lose weight.

Even when we lost weight… the goal stayed the same. Even when we lost weight… we were not happy, it actually created more anxiety as we were so worried about putting weight back on.

We were scared to eat, we were slaves to our exercise regimes, there was no joy.

After we discovered Yoga and Pilates and did our teacher trainings we knew first hand that the fitness industry was filled with toxicity and we didn’t want a part of it.

This is why we tell you (whether you join MerryBody or you don’t) YOU ARE AMAZING… just as you are, right here and right now.

But if what we are saying does resonate, come and join MerryBody over at​ we know we’re not everyone’s cup of tea BUT if the message of acceptance feels aligned we have a huge feeling you will absolutely LOVE MerryBody.

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla
