Life & Work with Liana Sun

Today we’d like to introduce you to Liana Sun.

Hi Liana, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I became interested in how the physical and energetic bodies work together in 1999 and started teaching yoga shortly after that (teacher trainings, RYT and YA were NOT a thing back then!) Since then, in addition to earning a Bachelor’s in Nutrition and Dietetics, I earned over 20 certifications in health, wellness and energy work. I currently work in a private setting, at my studio, Meraki Wellness and teach yoga 1 on 1 or to small, private groups, as well as offer Thai Yoga Bodywork, Energy/Chakra Work and Soul Purpose Coaching.

When I’m not helping people transform their lives through physical and energetic connections, I am a solo-mom to my 8-year-old daughter, and pet mom to a corgi mix and a horse, an avid hiker, a passionate foodie and seeker of more sun!

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I got divorced in 2016 and had to completely rebuild my life and restructure my goals based on a single income. Finding the balance between being a mom and an entrepreneur has been the greatest challenge, but a worthwhile one!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a Yoga Teacher and Thai Therapist, primarily. I am also a certified Chakra Healer, Crystal Healer and Soul Purpose Coach.

I absolutely LOVE sharing Thai Yoga Bodywork with my clients and offer more than just your standard session. I read the 7 major energy centers of the body (the Chakras) at the beginning of your session. During your session, I pay attention to how the body is responding and how that may be related to the different energy blockages. I then offer the use of a variety of oils, crystals and herbs to augment the energy work being done through the Bodywork.

Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
I made the decision to open my own studio space and become a full-time entrepreneur during the middle of the pandemic in 2020! I thrive under risk, honestly. I think once your back is against the wall, you have no choice but to find success. In those situations, people will learn a lot about themselves and they will either persevere or they won’t. And they’re going to learn fast if that risk is something that’s worth it to them or not.
