Meet  Tie Simpson

CEO, Certified Mindful Yoga Coach, Movement Artist, and Wellness Content Creator for my conscious lifestyle brand, Hippie Heathen. As the CEO of Sisters of Yoga, I oversee the brand image, operations, expansion, programs, policies, and procedures of the company.

When I'm not overseeing the programs, policies, and procedures of Sisters of Yoga, I'm creating content for brands, or doing cool mom things with my two teens. This super woman mom cultivates balance by scratching my travel itch often, free flowing on my yoga mat, and making acai bowls, while eating french fries. I love this life!

It's been a long yet rewarding road to get where I am today. I say with gratitude - thank goodness I don't look like what I've been through; I give deep thanks for that blessing. Now, my biggest joy is leading women through their own self-healing  journeys and watching them conquer their once limiting beliefs, to rise back up more powerful than ever.

DEEPer DIVE INTO MY STORY

DEEPer DIVE INTO MY STORY

DEEPer DIVE INTO MY STORY

DEEPer DIVE INTO MY STORY

My bloom was completely unexpected and divine; miraculous even, but it certainly (didn't start/always feel) that way. Like the story of the lotus flower, it felt like a slow creep right out of the dark depths of being utterly lost on who I was, and my purpose for being here.

I very distinctly remember telling my friends that I felt like I was having a midlife crisis… at 28. I had been laid off from my accounting job, working temp jobs to help keep up with the mortgage payments, and stumbling through being a very confused and trauma-filled, but conscious and determined stay at home mom to my then five and seven-year-old.

I was in what I would characterize as the deepest depression of my life- questioning everything from my religion, sexuality, and parenting, to my purpose, and the purpose of life in general. I was almost 30, with two young children, a degree in the field of Finance that I had grown to despise, and examining every fiber of my existence. Despite being surrounded by people who I knew loved me, I still felt misunderstood, lonely, and lost.



 



In July of 2013, I came across this online challenge of "shapes" while scrolling Instagram, and decided to challenge myself to give them a try. These shapes turned out to be yoga, and I quickly fell madly in love with the practice. I joined monthly challenges, and taught myself at home for almost two years, practicing every day, sometimes 5 hours a day. Yes, I was obsessed! Very soon, I started catching the eyes of others who became inspired by the transparency of my practice, as I shared how yoga was shifting my life on, and off the mat.

The practice of yoga and mindfulness was the catalyst that shifted the trajectory of my entire life, on and off the mat- I knew it was something I would devote the rest of my life to. It was like a domino effect of transformations that began to show up: in the way I parented my children, in my relationship and conversations with my partners, family, and friends; in the way I handled my anxiety, and depression, and most importantly in the connection I had with my Self.

In July of 2015, I went on to get certified as a Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor in Atlanta Georgia at Kashi Atlanta Urban Yoga Ashram, even though the thought of teaching scared me senseless. I really just wanted to learn more about the practice since I had only been learning at home. I also started to connect with other black yogis through Instagram who are now some of my closest friends.





 



Over the last 8 years, I’ve shed layers of unworthiness, confusion, self-hate, doubt, shame, poverty-mindset, and paralyzing fear to arrive in this now.... Through my practice of yoga, free embodied movement, mindfulness, and diving into deep shadow work, I’ve created the outer reality I desired to experience. Yes, it’s been work. a journey. a process, but one that has undoubtedly shifted the trajectory of my family for generations to come. It wasn’t until I stripped myself of the titles, peeled off masks of projected personas, and dismantled boxes of expectations and went in pursuit of something different. I’d found pieces that when strung together, would create this life-changing journey towards me finding ME. I decided to rewrite my own story, that would entail a whole new ending. I now deeply believe there is NO LIMIT to where this abundantly beautiful and bright life will take me next. 

I’ve built collective online communities of over 280K beautiful humans who are inspired by my journey and the lessons I have learned and shared along the way. I've continued my studies of holistic healing modalities in Meditation, Chakra Energy Healing, Conscious Breath Work, Sound & Vibrational Healing, and ancient plant medicines. I host multi-national yoga events and international healing retreats; founded Sisters of Yoga Wellness Collective; hosted As Above So Below- a spirituality podcast; started a non-profit, and create content as a highly sought-after yoga influencer working with brands like Adidas, Lincoln Motor, Bose, The Gap: Athleta, ALO Yoga, and others.

Through my wellness and lifestyle brand Hippie Heathen, I have become a torch light, guiding and empowering other seekers taking the journey to step into their personal power. Using yoga, holistic wellness, and conscious living modalities, I assist women in developing and sustaining healthy lifestyles, thus journeying to their most- happiest, healthiest, empowered self, i.e. self-mastery. Through flow, breath, and freedom of expression, I teach yoga as the vehicle to help you learn more about who you are. It helps strengthen and heal your body, but more importantly it nudges you to wake up to what is important in your life and to gently let go of the thoughts, habits, personas, and behavior patterns that no longer serve you.

If you've read this far, that means you know my secret, and we're family now, lol.
If you don't already, follow me on Instagram to stay connected, and if my story and offerings resonate with you enough to invest in any of my offerings, I look forward to walking with you on your healing journey. Hugging you virtually, until our physical union is manifested.
