“I personally know the impact that Yoga can have and wanted to share that with people. The main intention behind the business is the betterment of people’s lives..”
Liama Aesha is the founder of Inspire Yoga and Wellbeing in Dee Why.
Liama started on her own journey of personal growth over 30 years ago, and has trained in a number of practices, including transpersonal breathwork and sandplay, Zen Shiatsu and Yoga Therapy.
Due to her passion for Yoga, Liama started Inspire Yoga in 2015 and has aimed to show clients that Yoga is far more than an exercise class. It can become a way of life.
Through her use of these techniques and working with many clients over the years, Liama has developed a deep understanding of how Yoga can be a powerful transformative tool.
Liama’s passion is working in the mental health field, particularly with Anxiety / Depression and PTSD as the tools of Yoga can teach the life skills of self-inquiry, relaxation and self-soothing with breath practices to help balance the nervous system and calm the emotions.
She is a chocoholic, with a special passion for dark chocolate.
