The Studio

About Yoga Squared

Yoga Squared was founded by Casey Merkling, a wife, mom, yoga teacher, and yogini who found herself struggling to keep afloat with all of her responsibilities and obligations and make space for her own practice at the same time.  The more she spoke with other families, the writing on the wall became clear: people need a community space for tranquility that easily fits into their multi-faceted, fast-paced lifestyle. And so, the idea for Yoga Squared was born.

When Y2 opened its big, red French doors to the public in 2015, we became the only yoga studio in Orange County that provided babysitting for nearly every weekday class. The word about the new studio in Tustin traveled quickly, and our vision of being a family-friendly yoga studio expanded beyond our wildest dreams…

The entire studio itself had become a family of amazing yogis of all walks of life, ages, situations, and experience levels. Yoga Squared is home to some of Orange County’s most talented and beloved yoga teachers and has something for everyone! Whether you’re a total newbie or have been rolling out your mat for decades, Y2 will quickly become your new home studio! We’re 5-star rated on Yelp, Facebook, and Google, and it won’t be long before you find out why!
