Livia was first introduced to yoga as a senior in high school (2001-2002). Once she began attending Weber State University, she more regularly practiced yoga through the athletic program offered on campus. It became an important part of her life, and in 2009 she certified to teach PiYo (pilates and yoga fusion) with FiTour. In 2010 she certified with YogaFit, followed by an additional Hatha Yoga certification with FiTour. For four years, Livia taught pilates and yoga on campus at Weber State, and for Wasatch Therapy and Fitness of Ogden. She also assisted with the development of a yoga class for Farr West Tumblers and taught there for two years.
In 2017, Livia completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) with Salt Lake Community College.
