what people are saying about Liama Aesha McConachie


I had one on one yoga therapy sessions with Liama at a time of huge transition during my life with major life changes going on. My resilience and coping ability were very low. The sessions with Liama really helped soothe my nervous system and nourish my soul. Liama took the time to understand what was going on in my life and the impact this was having and tailored the yoga therapy sessions to my individual needs. I found the sessions and the practice that I was doing in between sessions incredibly helpful and it meant that I didnt have to take medication to help me through this difficult time. My doctor was fully supportive of this approach. Oct 2107


I came to Inspire with two knee replacements, no balance and no confidence in what my body could now do. Also, I'm 60 y.o. in two weeks. Liama has worked miracles with me! I can now kneel!! Have balance on occasions !! But mostly I love my classes and look forward so much to them. Thank you so much Liama! xox


Have been coming for over 1 1/2 years and love it. Studio is welcoming and relaxing. Staff are always going above and beyond with classes and ensuring moves are performed safely. Variety of classes are fantastic and suitable for all levels. Dita, Lisa, Terra, Punam and Josie are always welcoming and friendly. Leanne is the best physio I have ever seen (and Ive been to a few!) And Liama is the best! Love to all. Xx Namaste


Took the back care and flow classes at the recent Open Day. I loved the instructions and the focus on taking care via strengthening and stretching the back. The two classes went well together. The first class was a great warm-up for the back and body in general. Then to get fired up with a more active practise that started off slow and mindful, then gradually sped up to build up a sweat and raise the heart rate. Nice to finish with a Shavasana to feel the effects. Thank you Liama and Lisa for these nourishing classes.


I have been a member of Inspire Yoga for 10 months. Over this time I have increased my yoga practice to participating in daily classes. I have noticed a shift in how I feel both internally and externally. Internally I have more energy, I tackle every day with more organisation and calmness and my body functions are more regular. Externally my body is stronger both in the core and my upper body strength has increased as well as my posture and how I move. I have less overall aches and pains and headaches which were common prior to committing to yoga. I have also started to meditate which previously was very difficult for me as I did not have the skills or the instruction at a beginner level. The classes help me to explore by body and mind and have created a passion and commitment I did not think was possible for a daily practice. Inspire also create an environment for inclusion and mental health and I really feel like a part of a community.

I think kids yoga is the best because it is very fun every one is nice to you but at the same time it helps you relax with a meditation at the end that lets you let go of all your worries. Our teacher makes sure everyone is having the best time and no one gets left out. it Is a fun place to be. Everyone who comes always Looks forward to it.


Its been over 3 years now as my teacher and your support, knowledge and guidance has totally inspired and encouraged me to further my practice and discover more of the treasures of yoga. Your strong, dynamic, vinyasa flow classes with a touch of Pranayama, Meditation & Acroyoga bought a challenge while still maintaining awareness & Fun. I will truly miss my regular practice with you, but I know our paths will cross on this wonderful journey of Yoga ! Thank You from every inch of my core. Namaste


Yoga with Liama always helps me. Even when I was feeling like I didnt want to get out of bed for a 6am class it ALWAYS made me feel great. I loved it that much I became a yoga teacher! Liama is professional, encouraging and supportive as a teacher..


Two years ago I was drawn into a yoga studio and asked the teacher, Liama, if she would teach me this yoga thing! Yoga has transformed my life in so many ways! And I have realised that I was blessed to have found a teacher, in Liama, who is in a class of her own! As my acupuncturist, who was treating me for a recurring lower back injury at the time, said to me regarding yoga, Just Do It!!!


I have met Liama almost three years ago, during our yoga therapy teacher training and since then I started firstly attend Liamas classes - therapeutic, flow, core and lately Ki (Japanese yoga). Before I started to teach my own classes at Inspire Yoga and Wellbeing, I was covering classes for Liama her self or other teachers working at the Liamas studio. Practicing and teaching at Inspire Yoga and Wellbeing has allowed me to grow both as a student and as a teacher. Liama is my mentor, to whom I can turn as a student as well as a teacher, creating loving and safe space for everyone who comes to the yoga school. Inspiring to go deeper through the yoga studies, deeper into the inner journey to one self through sharing her knowledge and experience she gain on her own journey...


2 years ago, I decided to start practising Yoga again after several years of inactivity. Inspire Yoga & Wellbeing came highly recommended by my Integrative Medicine Practitioner and I decided to give it a try. After meeting with Liama and participating in her Therapeutic Yoga session I knew straight away that the philosophy and approach was different to the other places I had visited before. At Inspire, Yoga is celebrated in its original wholistic way, nurturing mind, body and soul alike. The Inspire team creates a welcoming, caring and safe environment for all their students. The classes offered, address a wide range of health concerns, cater for all levels of physicality and promote breathing and meditative techniques in every session. Liama and all the other wonderful and knowledgeable teachers at Inspire acknowledge, understand and respect all their clients individual needs and abilities and go above and beyond to ensure that every student enjoys and benefits from every class they are taking. Over the last two years practising at Inspire, my anxiety and stress levels have come down significantly. My overall physical abilities such as core strength, general strength, balance and endurance have improved greatly. The regular Meditation sessions have done wonders for my overall mental health, focus and confidence. I enjoy new friendships with likeminded people I met at Inspire. With the help of Liama and her team I have become a passionate student of Yoga and Meditation, practising up to 6 times per week at the studio. I am very grateful to have found this Yoga community. Truly inspiring!
