Established in 2015, LIV You is an Arizona based nonprofit recognized as an IRS tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization (EIN 47-3628988) providing healthy living education to positively impact the lives of women and their families through the development of our self care management system.
Our World’s Present State: Right now more women than ever are in the labor force than ever before making them the world’s most powerful consumers, and their impact on the economy is growing every year. While American women hold distinct titles and do the same work as men, women are paid 80 cents for every dollar a man makes. Unfortunately where women lag in pay, they lead the way in health challenges and deaths related to obesity, heart diseases, stroke, cancer, and mental illness. With unequal economic and healthy living conditions, women need more resources to support their wellbeing so they can continue being influencers, changemakers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders with the intention to make real changes across the globe.

Our Her-story: LIV You is the brainchild that was conceived from a series of life altering tragedies that affected the wellness of the founder, Ciara Wimby. Through her tragedies, she always turned to her yoga practice as the foundation of her support. Through her pain more passion was born and she developed the Live Project: Achieve Your Goals and Dreams through the Practice of Yoga, to help herself and others stay focused on living a meaningful and happy life even through life's challenges. Later she renamed the Live Project to LIV Your Truth through Yoga, LIV's signature foundation course, because she realized she was teaching people to love, value, and inspire themselves as well as others through using yoga as a support tool. Ciara knew she had a strong desire to heal herself and others and wanted to give more, this idea then led to the birth of LIV You Nonprofit. (Read more about Ciara Wimby)
