A yogi story

Good morning friends! Sometimes I ask my friends to do things for me and other times they just do it from their own hearts.

One of my sweet friends is celebrating her 1 year yoga anniversary. She’s been on a journey and it’s been beautiful to watch.

I decided to start featuring their stories so that you could understand what yoga does for your mind body and soul.

I simply copy and paste her words for you to share here.

I can’t believe it has been a year since my friend Tavia Hayduk convinced my fat butt to go yoga🧘‍♀️. I was nervous and didnt want to go but she convinced me. Boy was I surprised😮! I released so much tension and stress and started going on occasion. Recently this bad ass friend of mine became certified to teach🧘‍♀️ and I started to go weekly to her class. Sure I may not be able to do all the moves perfectly, but what she teaches you is listen to your body and do what you can. I have seen improvement in my flexibility and mental health. I am less foggy, more focused. It calms your mind, body and soul. I am so excited that she is now adding another class. I would love if someone would take the leap like I did and come join me. Its in Bellefontaine at 209 West Columbus Avenue and only $10.


Thank you for sharing your light with us Stephanie, you are beautiful inside and out.

Stay tuned for more real life yogi adventures.

Changing the world always needs volunteers

Good morning beautiful souls! I hope this blog finds you well. I’ve been a bit of a slacker when it comes to writing lately, but that’s only because I’ve been busy connecting in person.

We recently hosted our first of many teen anxiety yoga and tie dye workshop. We spent 2 hours diving deeper into ourselves and learning about who we are and who we are not.

Prayer hands and big smiles

We spent time learning how to create new thoughts and healthy all natural alternatives to medicines and labels.

Legs up the wall

We did some yoga after the workshop and then we tie dyed some shirts.

I told them there was going to be a test after we were done and they all got really anxious for a minute.

But then I told them the truth, it was one simple question.

They had to tell me one thing that they learned here today.

One thing that they didn’t know before they walked through our doors.

Something that they could take home with them and use every single day.

And I will tell you that their answers were absolutely the most beautiful part of entire day. (Or maybe it’s was their smiles)

Either way these kids are going to do amazing things. They are brave and strong and powerful.

May you take the time to learn about yourselves or at least send your kids to yoga!

He world needs lot more light!

Stay tuned for our next adventures, and follow Awakened Soul Yoga on social media.

Namaste 💜 Tay Tay

Which path are you following?

Good morning beautiful souls! I have a message for you today from the heart and the spirit.

As I continue on this path for 2020 I’m often at a loss for words. But today I know without a doubt that you can change the world by loving your spouse.

Not the way that the world tells you to love your spouse, but the way the lord tells you to love your spouse. Enter free will!

This is where you have to make a decision. I’ll be sharing the verses later in this blog that melt my heart and make me want to do things the spiritual way.

You see God says that your supposed to love your wife like he loves the church. And if that’s not the most beautiful and magical description of love then I don’t know what is.

But here’s the problem with that. We’ve been raised and we’ve inherited certain patterns that we have to disrupt. Meaning until we truly love ourselves we can’t love anyone else.

Marriage is supposed to be about oneness. Not being together on paper, but truly opening your heart and allowing the other person to see all of you. The love that comes from doing thing’s selflessly instead of selfishly are 2 totally different energies.

There are way to many people settling for a marriage that isn’t centered around oneness. We are either moving together or apart and there’s no in between.

I commend those of you that are brave enough to want more, if you’ve been in an unhealthy marriage. God doesn’t want you to fix your partner, instead he wants you to grow together.

So many people treat their dogs better then they treat their spouses and then even joke about this. That’s the worlds way.

People cheat on their spouses and have secret addictions, but yet they stay together when nothing’s changing and pass on more unhealthy native patterns for their kids.That’s the worlds way.

People feel comfortable talking shit about their spouses out loud and in public. That’s the worlds way.

People lie and manipulate to get their own way, creating more division and less unity. That’s the worlds way.

I could go on and on and on with examples of the way the world wants you to believe marriage is supposed to be, but I’m coming to you with a new message.

One that will actually help save the world instead of destroy it. A message that comes from the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end.

If you want to be the light in a world full of darkness and evil, then love your spouse the way you were created to love them.

Make your relationship a full time job and never ever get comfortable with the mundane. Spend time with people that encourage you to be your most authentic self, and those who make you feel full of love after you leave them.

We must admit where we are in this world and then we have to do our parts to take action. We can’t simply sit by and watch everything fall apart, when we’re supposed to be doing the work to shine our lights and share our love.

Because love is the most powerful energy anywhere and you are both light and dark. My prayer for you today is that you might be brave enough to take inventory of yourself and your own marriage. Allowing the lord to shape your thoughts and your heart.

He who loves his wife loves himself.

Faith Over Fear & Facts Over Fiction

This is so on point
As we continue through 2020 and relationships change because the masks are off
I ask you yet again
Does the government love you like I do?

The real
Conspiracy theorists believe that the government cares about them, the media would never mislead or lie to them and the pharmaceutical industry that makes billions off sickness want to cure them.


I’m sorry if your still stuck in fear and compliance because you were made for so much more.

I hope that your brave enough to get out of your heads and into your spirits💜

I won’t be a part of doing nothing and saying nothing 💜 I’ve always gone against the crowd and now I understand why

It’s ok to change your mind
It’s evolution and the more we learn the more we know.

Humble pie is your friend!

Evolve dear ones 💜

What I didn’t know last year

Good morning friends! I hope this blog finds you well, wherever you are in the world. I know we are in the middle of crazy times, but trust your gut and your heart and Gods plan and not your government. (I’m going to leave that right there)

One year ago this month I signed up for YTT. (Yoga Teacher Training) I had been wanting to do this for years but it was never the right time. And if I’m being honest this wasn’t the right time either, but I went for it anyways.

I met the most amazing group of women and we grew together in a million different ways. I know without a doubt that I was exactly where I needed to be and that this was a part of my dharma.

What I didn’t know was that the world was going to hell in a hand basket. I didn’t know that we were all about to experience a collective trauma. I had no clue the entire world was about to be gaslighted and manipulated by fear.

I didn’t know that I’d be quitting my career after 16 years because of a stupid mask mandate that harms my client, instead of protects them.

I didn’t know that I was going to have to be really brave and face the unknown waters of building a new business and a new dream.

I didn’t know that I would teach a class before I even graduated, and I had no clue that I would feel like I was at home every single time I stepped onto my mat.

I need to tell you guys that sometimes we have to go through the unknown in order to become who we’re supposed to be. We have to do scary shit and be different then the world because that’s why you were made.

Your not supposed to fit in, because your mission is different then everyone else’s.

I trust that I am on the path that I need to be on. Yes I have worried about my income and how I’ll make it while building a new dream. But I also have faith and hope and I know that I will be rewarded for taking a stand. For having a backbone, and for simply saying no!

I don’t know what the future has to offer me but today I’ll stay in the present moment and I’ll continue to focus on the good and allow the rest to melt away.

Am I afraid?


Can you be afraid and still take action?


I hope you take the time to follow your dreams and to let your fears go.

A little advice on taking current inventory of your relationships

The worst thing about me is that I love too hard. I know, I know! How can one seriously love too hard?!?

It’s quite simple you know, when I love people I see their souls and not their flaws. This sometimes causes relationships to be lopsided. So I decided today was the perfect day to take inventory, and I decided to bring you guys along for the lesson.

We as humans tend to spend lots of time in our heads and In story telling mode, and that’s completely normal. No need to beat yourself up for that my friends, because we all do it.

But sometimes we need to update our blueprints by taking a current inventory of ourselves and those we love.

Over the years things change and people change and we are ALWAYS changing and so our relationships. They in themselves have their own energy and in order to live in the now we have to understand where we stand.

In our hearts and our heads we might say things to ourselves like this:

I love my girlfriends

I’m so happy in my job

I’m spoiled by my man

I have the best family

And so on and so on. It’s not bad what we tell ourselves these stories, instead the question we need to be asking ourselves is “Is it true today?”

Our memories are kept near our hearts and stamped on our brains, so we have to understand this about ourselves. And then we have to be willing to use one of the most important gifts that God ever gave us, which is discernment.

And when we call in discernment we’re simply calling in the truth, without judgment. Taking an inventory of my current relationships and my emotional bank account for each one.

Narrowing it down to the last 30 days is the best way to see where you stand currently. After taking the time to be real ask yourself these questions.

I mean we could do 60 days or 99 days, but if they haven’t been around in the last 30 days, chances are they don’t live around here or your remembering the way things used to be.

When was the last time I hung out with this person?

When did we talk on an intimate level and not an artificial level?

Is the relationship growing or dying?

Does this person offer me as much love as I offer them?

Does the relationship make me better or bitter?

Is it time for new peeps?

Ending friendships doesn’t mean that we have to hate anyone, but it does mean that we are actively participating in making our lives the best possible life that we can live.

Some people are chapters and some people are books! I hope your brave enough to use use your discernment and to listen to your gut, because you’ve only got this one life.

When one door closes another one opens and you will always end up with whatever you invest in.

The truth behind the yoga mat

You’ll never truly understand the effects of yoga until you bring your ass to a class.

Words cannot express the happy I felt when I received this text today after our morning yoga class.

You must learn to be still and to make time for you, because this will fill your cup in a way nothing ever has before.

The world will have you think that the busier you are the more successful you will be, but I come to you with a new message.

One of peace and presence and power, that you will receive by being still.

I think that Jim describes it best “you look happy and relaxed” and she was truly her best self in that moment.

Sometimes the students are the teachers

This is why God made me different

When you finally understand why God made you different.

When it all comes together and you realize that you are strong enough to handle his missions for your life.

When you finally accept that you’ve never fit in and now is not the time to start.

When the world is full of sheep I will be a lion.
When the world tells you to conform out of fear, I will teach you how to relinquish control and accept your hearts mission.

I fully understand my mission and I’m ready and able to embrace it.
At times it’s scary and at other times it’s liberating, but I was born to be the change.

I’ve told you for years that I don’t play by the rules of this world, because I’m a spiritual chic,who works from the heart and not the head.

As we continue on our journey one things for sure, my daughter and my granddaughter will remember that we we’re the only ones without a mask. They will remember when I stood up to the nonsense in this world.

They will understand what it takes to be strong and full of spirit instead of fear. They are learning that I have their best interest at heart even when the government did not.

They are learning about boundaries and self love and how to use their voices, and I wouldn’t change a single thing.

How many years have you passed on dysfunction through out your families?

Have you ever thought about passing On healing and change?!?

As we continue in this crazy world I’ll continue to be the change that we desperately need. I’ll walk in faith surrounded by the Holy Spirit and understand that my work here has just begun.

Tavia Hayduk
Gangster of Love ❤️


Is a fancy word for your ego.

Often times we cause our own suffering simply because we are stuck in the I realm of ourselves.

Notice how many times your referring to yourself.

I am left out
I am hurt
I am mad
I am sad

This is how we grew into ourselves and shift from our egos, but only for a moment.
Every single time you choose let go of the ego without judgment you will awaken a little more.

Understand that this is not a onetime choice, it’s simply a new pathway out of your broken. One doesn’t simply lose their ego, they just learn to detach from it. They learn to grow instead of being attached to the pain.

Learn to rewrite the story that you tell yourself simply by becoming aware of you Asmita.

You are beautifully broken

Taking up space

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Following your dreams is a little bit scary but a whole lot of amazing. My heart is overflowing with abundance and gratitude for this amazing group of souls.

I started a new class last Sunday and it was the perfect beginning to something brand new.

In a world that makes you think fitting in the cool thing, I come to you with a completely different message.

Fitting in makes you small and unhappy. As we grow into our authentic selves we must shed our skin time and time again. We must be willing to be different if we want to change the future.

Our opinions don’t matter and they never have, but our actions matter and our energy matters. When you love yourself you begin to outgrow people and places that don’t honor you.

You learn to spend time with those that make you better, not bitter. You learn to make yourself a priority because no one ever taught you how to do that before.

And as you continue to take up space, you create a new vibe and a new tribe. There’s absolutely no room for self comparison and jealousy when your living your best life.

Those are characteristics of the ego and you don’t want live in your ego. You were meant to be full of spirit and love, not depleted and on auto pilot.

If your minds sick, your body and your soul will be sick. If your brains healthy, then everything else will be healthy. Your energy will be balanced, and you will be open to new things. You will learn to be a yes in life instead of a no. You will learn to take up space inside your own body and then your energy will attract love instead for fear.

May you fully understand that tomorrow’s not promised and that your actions every single day will determine your future.
