Alex Merkowitsch

Alex was drawn to the path of yoga amidst difficult family and life changes. The moment she stepped onto the mat, her transformation to live a more fully integrated life began. Her perception of the world softened, her physical body got stronger and more flexible, her mind calmed, and her spiritual heart opened.

Yogic principles bring peace and awareness to Alex’s life that she wishes to share with her students. As a certified and registered yoga teacher, she draws on her training in the Anusara, Yin Yoga, Yoga Therapy and Principle-based Partner Yoga methods to facilitate a safe opening of body, mind, and heart for any level student.

Alex’s intention is to light the path so that each student receives what is needed to live a more present and aware life – on and off the mat.

Alex leads special focus classes, workshops, and retreats in Texas, Germany, and Thailand. She also offers corporate classes, where she draws from her own experience in business settings to reduce injuries from sedentary desk work, repetitive motion, and stress. Her classes are conscientiously and skillfully sequenced, incorporate strong physical and energetic alignment, and are supported with uplifting themes for the heart that encourage abundance and well being in our lives.

For years she searched for just the right name for her business. Meraki (may-rah-kee) is a Greek word which means “doing something with passion and soul.” The meaning resonated with her instantly. Meraki yoga crystallizes her commitment to the path and the passion to pass on the teachings of yoga.
