Lessons I’ve Learned Through Social Media | Rachel Brathen | TEDxAruba
Rachel talks about the impact social media can have on your life, and how to stay authentic.
Swedish native Rachel Brathen is a New York Times best selling author, motivational speaker and international yoga teacher residing in Aruba. Rachel’s Instagram account @yoga_girl has over 1.6 million followers – making it the largest yoga account in the world.
Rachel is known for her inspirational inversion practice and inverted poses into her classes, breaking challenging asana down into steps making them accessible for all levels. She is also one of the first people in the world to take yoga from the mat and onto a paddle board, and she teaches SUP Yoga (Stand-Up Paddle board Yoga) in all of her retreats and also at festivals and events in different countries around the world.
Rachel released her first book this year, “Yoga Girl”. Part self-help and part memoir, YOGA GIRL is an inspirational, full-color look at the adventure that took her from her hometown in Sweden to the jungles of Costa Rica and finally to a paradise island in the Caribbean that she now calls home.
