30 Years of Mindful Movement

30 Years of Mindful Movement

This year we are excited for another significant milestone as Merrithew celebrates its 30-year anniversary.

When we opened our studio in Toronto into 1988, we couldn’t have imagined Merrithew would become what it is today. So much has changed in the health and fitness industry over the last three decades. One change that we are so pleased to see is the growth of mind-body exercise and the recognition of the impact it can have on people’s lives. The benefits of mind-body exercise are reaching thousands around the world, and with the increasing pressures of modern life, the need for the very real benefits of mind-body exercise only grows larger.

Thirty years in, we couldn’t be more proud of what’s been created, and our incredible global community. With over 50,000 trained and counting, we are so thankful for the dedicated and talented community of training centers, Instructor Trainers, Instructors and partners who work each day to bring the benefits of mindful movement to the world.

Though we have seen many changes over the past three decades, one thing that hasn’t changed is our unwavering philosophy of effective and responsible exercise, and our mission to motivate people of all ages and fitness abilities to lead healthier lives.  Our mindful movement offering continues to grow and evolve, incorporating the latest in exercise science research and catering to the needs of our community to expand their knowledge, meet the continued needs of their diverse clients, grow careers and businesses.

We are excited for 2018, and are looking forward to the year ahead.

We will be announcing some exciting celebrations to mark the occasion including brand new programming, sharing more inspiring stories and content from our incredible community, announcing new products and services – stay tuned to find out more! If you have a story to share on how mindful movement has impacted your life, we would love to hear from you. Email us at and tell us about your unique path.

Once again we’d like to thank all of you that make all of this possible. Together, we are changing the lives of people around the world.

Yours in good health,
