“You have done a great job charting our course through these seas of trying times. Sad that our voyage is coming to an end, this course has been a god send and helped me immensely with my lower back issues. There is a tone and cadence to your commands I find soothing and subtly hypnotic, so the exercise portion of our sessions is medicinally relaxing. I generally intend to continue Yoga in some form indefinitely going forward, and would be happy to sail with you again. Please send me the information of the registration for the summer classes”.
“I swear, your yoga nidra is some powerful juju. I had a terrible tension headache since I woke up this morning. Did some yoga, some walking, drank lots of water, got acupuncture from Matt, nothing helped. Then 45 min of yoga nidra with you and poof it’s gone. 😘”
“I’m going to do the hip class on repeat every day! I almost started crying it felt so good and I was so happy to hear your voice leading me through it ❤️”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your class helped decrease my pain incredibly, even with driving to Raleigh. Stretched when I got home and slept with a pillow under my ribs. Didn’t move ONCE during the night, no tossing and turning, and woke up pain free! I have had the left side discomfort since I came to my daughter’s in October. Just wanted to let you know HOW much you helped me and I now have a tool box full of new things to add to my practice to open my ribs and chest!
“Today was my favorite class so far and I have liked them all so that’s saying something! I’ve been so pleased with how much better my hip and back have felt since I started yoga that I want to keep it up. I’ve lost 54 pounds since July. That coupled with the hip and back relief I get from yoga has been life-changing. I never want to go back: only forward! Thank you for caring so much about each of us. You are really making a difference with us.”
“You are honestly the reason I started practicing yoga again regularly. I just finished my 200 hour in May with Yoga Works and am teaching now at LA Fitness twice a week. I’ve been going to so many classes and doing so much self study lately, over the past year and half. Your level of artful instruction and calming supportive environment you cultivate in class is amazing and something I am aspiring to as a new teacher = )”
“I have done all of your videos and the meditation recording. I can now match the classes to how I’m feeling that day. This is a huge gift to me and others.
Mercedes was attentive and her guidance was easy to follow. She helped me through some issues that I was unable to find elsewhere. I felt very comfortable and in good hands the entirety of my visit. I will definitely be back for another Reiki session very soon. Highly recommend.

Mercedes Ani, Reiki Master and teacher… For a lot of us there is so much hesitation and fear as to “Is this right for me? Can I really be of service make a difference in my own life, in my friends families, and in time, anyone in need?” These where my fears and concerns. “How can ordinary me do something so special?”With Mercedes, there is a guidance, reassurance and a genuine concern and desire to give you all the knowledge and confidence in yourself to know that healing is not for “special people” we are all special and anyone with the desire to share unconditional love and truly give to those in need can give Reiki. Mercedes is an amazing educator as well as being full of patience and understanding to share fully in each level and experience you have. Not only through this training have I gained a vast source of knowledge and a beautiful guide on my own journey, I have gained a true and loyal friend. This has been a life changing experience. Dare to dream and dream big, you are capable of sharing in this gift and so many more. To Mercedes Ani I owe such boundless gratitude for guiding me on this humbling yet empowering journey. I have been introduced to an inner peace I didn’t even know was possible.

When I was offered the chance to receive reiki at a distance, I was open-minded but skeptical about how the experience would compare to my previous in-person sessions. After the first session, I was blown away to hear Mercedes’ voice recording. Even at a distance she was precisely tuned in (almost word for word) to what I had journaled about that morning and was able to offer me a really helpful perspective on an issue I was experiencing. I’ve actually done every reiki session since as a distance session, and while I miss seeing my friend in person, I don’t feel that my reiki experience is any less!

I had only worked with Mercedes a few times before I moved to Europe. She had shared that she does distance reiki so I thought why not give it a try since I couldn’t find anyone local. So we scheduled a session. It’s hard to describe but I could feel the when she was working on me in certain parts of my body. Like the energy in different parts of my body would “swirl” or twitch or feel heavier. And I absolutely could tell when she was done too. It’s a super cool experience and I am grateful for it.
