It blows my mind how clever, inspiring & amazing people can be… It makes me feel a tad insignificant THEN it inspires the b-jezuz out of me to do something myself.

Aaaaaah……This is me screaming with excitement about having Rachel Brathen, aka Yoga Girl feature this week.

If you are a yoga lover, if you are a fitness junkie, if you are a positive body image advocate, if you are a dreamer, a free spirit, a happy soul seeker, someone who appreciates gorgeous and talented inspiring women….then you must and will LOVE Rachel Brathen as much as the HALF A MILLION plus people who follow her on Instagram.

This was Rachel’s description of herself:

My name is Rachel Brathen, I am 25 years old living in Aruba… I’m an international yoga instructor, currently on what feels like a world tour! I travel all around the world leading retreats, teaching workshops and doing my best to inspire people to follow their dreams! 

All very true lovely and humble. But here is mine:

A goddess! A ray of happiness and sunshine! An absolute idol living my dream life! Doing yoga in paradise every damn day, with her loves surrounded by nature and carefree spirits. The queen of handstands, arm balances, SUP Yoga and contorting herself into some really cool and inspiring yoga poses. A beam of love and light, you can just see it right! You can tell that Rachel is a lover and appreciator of life. It shows in how much of herself she GIVES!

A wise and whimsical boho babe who doesn’t take herself too seriously and who couldn’t care less about sexiness, but very deservingly was voted by Business Insider ‘the sexiest Instagram Star Alive’…nooooot bad for a Swedish gal just doing her thang and now living her dream in the Caribbean island of Aruba…heaven! I guess thats how it happens right!

Rachel has been practicing yoga since she was a young teen. After graduating school she traveled to Costa Rica and it was here that she found the joy of incorporating yoga into her everyday life. Deepening her yoga practice and also taking her first steps towards teaching, she ended up moving to Central America where she spent years exploring the intricate studies of yoga and spirituality.

Rachel is one of the first people in the world to take yoga from the mat and onto a paddle board (genius!), and she teaches SUP Yoga (Stand-Up Paddle board Yoga) in all of her retreats and also at festivals and events. Lucky for us, Rachel does these all across the globe. Teaching and inspiring others with her dynamic Vinyasa Flow integrating alignment, core work, and breathing techniques and creative sequencing. Rachel is known for her inspirational inversion practice, strong arm balances, breaking down challenging asana and of course infusing all of this with an attitude of wisdom, love and fearless living.

Love it or hate it, social media when used for good can be so informative, helpful, fun and inspiring that it’s mind blowing, don’t you think? Being so visual and interactive, it can be life changing and powerful when done in a authentic way.

Do yourself the most massive favour ever and please please please follow, like, stalk Rachel and have her radiant beams of love and light inspire you as much as she is the 613,000 INSTAGRAM followers and 114,000 Facebook lovers.
