He is protecting me

The constant sadness, confusion, emptiness and frustration inside of me..
I didn’t understand why I kept feeling this way. I felt like I am at the right place doing the right thing but, the emptiness didn’t go away. WHY? 

I prayed, l listened, I followed, and yet something just felt off all the time. At times I felt like I’m reading the messages wrong or maybe God has something else in store for me but I couldn’t understand it because I felt like he lead me this way. He answered me through scripture. At some points things just happened and it felt right. The clients, the studio, the support from some families and friends. The obstacles and downfalls was maybe just the evil one’s plan to make me fail. At least that’s what I thought…

In my post “Broken Wings” I pretty much explained how down and out I felt because of something that happened recently. How I’ve been questioned being a “yoga teacher” as a woman of God. It was hurtful and I felt the people I thought should support me are against me. ( I was wrong) I do feel the approach should’ve been different. I decided to keep praying about it and to only hold on to God and no one else. Last week God sent a other woman of God my way. She asked for health and fitness advice and I felt so good because “yay! God is still on my side. Things are happening”. To my shock she said she don’t want to do ” yoga” because she is saved. My response was “me too and it is not for any other spiritual benefits” but she stood by what she believed is right. It made me think a lot and I prayed about it because I felt like there is something I do not know. I needed guidance from God only. 

Oh how wonderful is Jesus our saviour! I did some research and prayed. The reason why I always felt like I’m doing something wrong is because of the holy ghost trying to stop me from doing ungodly things. To take on a path or journey that is not from God. I came across the story of a former yoga/reiki teacher truth behind yoga. I thank God for this woman of God sharing her testimony across the world.

It feels like a huge weight off my shoulders. I am feeling good because I want to be a obedient child of God. I want to put Jesus first in everything I do in my life. I  plan to keep it that way.

The burning worldly desires almost destroyed me. I am feeling blessed and happy. I do have a regular client now to help losing weight and reach fitness goals. I am still going forward with my fitness journey and still have a lot in my mind. 

If you are a child of God saved by the grace of Jesus I do hope this post and link I shared will touch you. And I pray that God will touch everyone reading it and to get a true understanding.

Let’s Stay Happy and Healthy

A poem of comfort

Hi Everyone! 

Happy Wednesday! 

Today I feel like sharing this comforting words I wrote. I believe this is Jesus in the times of my weaknesses. It is all up to us to listen to him and feel the love he has for his children.

My heart is not heavy, I do not feel sad or frustrated. Today is a good day however, everyday is a good and blessed day. It just up to us on how we will handle it. 

Let’s stay away from negative people and things in our lives. Embrace and appreciate the people and things that add value to your life.

Yay! To more happy days!

My dearest,

Spread your wings and fly; Do not ask why, you have the power to reach for the sky; Oh my dearest why do you fear; I am then always here

See yourself through my eye; don’t be blind to your beauty inside

Rise, Spread your wings and fly; Do not ask why; My oh My..

The road is narrow, The road is wide; make your choice and be wise in making your decision; I have a vision for you, Yes it is true; I believe in you

I love you my dear; why do you fear; as I told you already; I am always here..

Spread your wings and fly my dearest

Jesus

Broken Wings

Today I’m filled with confusion. I am not sure if I can say broken or just feel like a piece of paper in the wind.

I get blown by the wind to whichever side. The moment I feel I’ve found my destination I just get blown again. 

I prayed, I still do..

Everything went so well. I felt like I’ve found my purpose. Everything felt in to place. I felt like God is in this. Now people come around and crush my wings.

My wings was spread, I just started to fly, I couldn’t do it on my own God felt present. The girl with dreams, The girl who has hope, The girl who felt like she’s finally achieving need to take a step back again.

It seems like my Yoga journey is a problem at the moment. It seems like me being an entrepreneur, a woman who wants to empower herself is wrong. God gives us talent he bless us and we need to make use of it.

I want to give some advice to the young ambitious ladies out there. Please do make a name for yourself or reach for your goals while you are in your twenties not married yet. It just seems like the best thing for an ambitious woman.

Today I feel like this, tomorrow might be different. Only God knows.
My message stay the same let’s Dream Believe Achieve

Never felt Better

Every time I do my home practice I can’t believe how fearful I was seven months ago. Also not very educated about what I was doing and love so very much..

I did not know or understand my body the way I do now. Mobility, Balance, Strength, and proprioception. I can remember how dreadful a plank was Oh My! And little did I know my hand placement and elbows was all wrong. I do not plan to go deep in to explaining the postures and alignments in this post as I just wanted to share how awesome Yoga makes me feel!

Warrior Poses, the leg placement and don’t forget the hips and arms! Oh so very important to reap the benefits of each and every pose. It can only happen when you go to a professional. Believe Me! I used to be a self taught yogini hmmmmm… Not a very clever move however, it’s good to love it just visit a good Yoga teacher hehehehe

Your basic standing poses like Tadasana(mountain pose) you would think it’s just about standing uhm no no, and starting your class with mountain pose can also give you a meditative start not only seated poses. To ground your self through your feet, big toes touching and heels slightly apart, stand up straight, chest slightly out, arms by your sides, palms facing forward, gaze forward, close your eyes… Om 

Ooh lovely! 

I can remember how I struggled with savasana, most people look forward to that! Because of my anxiety problems I struggled a lot. I couldn’t let go, my mind was all over and it just felt like it’s not for me. Our teacher did a restorative class with us one day and it did wonders to me. When we did the class for trauma it was actually my breakthrough. Today I can end my practice with a well deserved and anxious free Savasana 🙂

Let’s reach for the sky!!!
Namaste

2018 is kicking off with a Bang!

Hi All! Beauties, handsomes hehehe

I just want to say hello and how are you??

I’m doing great! Very busy as most of you already know. I am so excited, stressed, happy, frustrated, patient, impatient, doubt, fear..  All the emotions a person go through when planning and working towards your goals and dreams.

I’m proud to say I do have a photographer now! @mondrevelensky

I’m also starting my classes 27 January as I found a studio to rent!

My website will be up and running hoping from next week ( just have to) 

Exciting stuff!! God is so good to me!

Not giving up, pushing through, believing, planning, striving all of that is Key!!

New Yogi, full of ideas

Everything is going so well with the start of my business. I am busy getting all small nits and grits out of the way first. As I do not have any extra money or capital things are going a bit slower than the usual. But I am happy with how things are falling in to place.

I’m done with my first client and I am happy with what I achieved. Her goal was to shrink her waist and tone. Hoping she will continue working hard and follow my advice.

My first outdoor yoga event was successful too. We had a nice picnic too 🙂

So yes (sigh), after the holidays it’s hard work again. Getting a studio, photographer, building a client base..

I’ve found my purpose, I feel confident and content.

Yoga is just Amazing!!

Certified Yoga Teacher

Done and dusted…

My long five months of Teacher training are done!! What a relief lol

It was hectic as I am a full time worker, planning a business, wife and mom too. I am doing everything by myself except for my husband and family’s support. At least I finished one goal and can move forward to the next.

I am also proud to say I started with my first paid client and she is happy with my workouts so far. I am focusing on outdoor yoga at the moment. Fresh out in nature and calming. I will be hosting a Yoga and picnic event tomorrow.(my first)

I wish I could leave my job, but yeah this is my path and I just have to work hard and smart. God is having my back 🙂

Yay to Fitness, Yoga, Wellness

Diagnosed with measles(still positive)

Hi all!

I hope you are doing all good. I’ve been in bed since Monday with measles. But I am still blessed and thankful God is by my side.

I’m just laying here thinking, it is almost December and I will be a qualified Yoga Teacher(exciting stuff).

I won’t be able to attend this weekend’s class but at least I can make up. I am using this time in bed to prep my page, website, research pricing, venues, and many more. Contacted my friends to book them, making sure they know I am getting started now. Good to start with friends so they can be the critics for now hehehe.

Even though I am laying here very worried that I won’t be better by Monday, I am still positive. This

weekend will be a wonderful weekend indoors with my family.

Stay positive what ever challenge you are facing, God never forsake us. Don’t give up on your hopes, dreams and beliefs.

Am I not fat enough, Am I not Skinny enough

It is time that Body Shaming and Judging must be put to a Stop.

I strongly believe a Healthy Lifestyle is more than the Physical appearance. People must stop their Ignorance. 

There are people out there who are facing real challenges. People who are trying to live a Healthy Lifestyle but get put down by being judged by their body image. Believe it or not, it happens.

My experience

I can’t believe how people is telling me “but you’ve never been fat” uhm… Really?? What’s your idea of a Healthy Body? Yes, that’s my question.

So me being skinny or thin makes me healthy???

There are so many misconceptions about a fit and healthy body. Skinny don’t mean Healthy, Big Build don’t mean Unhealthy or Unfit. When you are over weight you definitely need to make a change but it need to come from you, it need to come from deep inside. To really love and care for yourself is a big step in anyone’s life. To not do it for others but Yourself.

Here is pic of me being skinny and not so Healthy, where I still focused on being skinny and what’s considered “sexy” the year 2013.


I’ve lost weight and just gained again, because I did not understand Healthy fully.

Here is 2014 where I gained again. Losing and gaining a vicious cycle. I realised I am fighting a losing battle. 

2014 Weight Gain

I decided to make a change, to start within me. I decided to not do it for people but myself.

Today I can truly say I am happy and healthy. It is still tough, the journey is long and challenging. With Social Media influence on people too. The people focus so much on the physical appearance.

My goal is to win as many people as I can over to focus on their Health without having to worry about their looks.

Having a lean and fit body is awesome and it just shows what hard work and dedication does. So I salute those who are achieving their fitness goals.

People must also understand there are many different Fitness Concepts. So if you are focusing on General Fitness don’t compare yourself with a Bodybuilder or Personal Trainer. Some people chose Fitness As their careers. So Don’t Judge

Let’s focus on one self, stand together against obesity, body shaming/judging and most of all choose HEALTH
