This week has been all yoga, cinnamon buns, best friends, babies, dips in a cold ocean, wine on the porch and walks in the sunshine. Swedish summer days are the best summer days@orothschild @patrickbeke @dennisfromsalad #summer #family #öland

We couldn't see the eclipse here in Sweden but here is a picture of my sleepy little moon... With a very dapper guardian by her side️ These days I feel like if I blink, I'll miss something. She sits up super well on her own and moves in circles on her belly now. On the bed in the morning she grabs ahold of the sheet and uses it to pull herself forward! And she's doing a super funny looking backwards push-crawl where she lifts her butt but without quite managing to get onto her knees... She's going to crawl for real any day now. How are things happening so quickly!? Nights are better now but she still wakes up to eat, or laugh, or both. She smiles at everyone who looks at her and bursts out in spontaneous laughter for no reason, all the time. She's just the best thing that's ever happened to me #5months #wherelunagoesringogoes #littlemoon #lealuna #love

This week has been so intensely overwhelming in the most awful and beautiful ways. I've led a group of 30 women through twice a day heartfelt yoga and sharings during our @109world mission trip for female empowerment and healing. The purpose of the trip has been to raise funds and awareness for the Panzi Hospital in Congo, where the renowned Dr Mukwege works tirelessly to help survivors of rape and sexual abuse. In Congo rape is used as a legitimized weapon of war and the atrocities that take place there every day has at times been too much for us to take in. We've met and spoken to a Congolese woman, Divine Blessing, who after suffering through inexplicable horrors her entire life fled with her four children, while pregnant with her fifth, to Sweden, all alone. She finally found refuge here and now she tells her powerful story to anyone and everyone who will listen. "Speaking of what happens to us is the only way to heal", she says. It's true. We've also worked with the incredible @thordiselva who wrote a book together with her perpetrator and has dedicated her life to changing the way society views rape and how in almost every case, the blame is put on the survivor. We came here thinking we would be supporting women in some country far far away... But what came up during this week was so close to home. Over 80% of women in the group had suffered through sexual abuse or rape themselves - some memories surfaced during these very days. Some women spoke up about their experience for the very first time in their lives. According to The WHO more than 1 in 3 women will experience rape or sexual abuse in this lifetime, but the dark numbers are staggering and most likely much, much higher. If we haven't had an experience ourselves we all know someone - a girlfriend, a sister, a loved one, who has. The question is: what is being done to fix this massive global problem that is only spoken about behind close doors? Truth is, it's not a women's issue. Its a humanitarian issue. Above all -it's a mans issue! 94-97% of all perpetrators are male. I will speak more on this during the next coming days as I digest this incredibly powerful week. Read more on www.109world.com

This weeks podcast is out! I took this photo mid-recording... It was a beautiful moment, a feeling of awe in what could have been a mundane tick of my to-do list. This week I talk about FEELING FAT BUT LOOKING FABULOUS! I dive into the super important topic of body image and body positivity. How can we find self love in a society that constantly pushes us toward non-acceptance? In this episode I talk about loving my postpartum body while struggling with that little voice in the back of my mind telling me I'm not good enough. I share a recent (and fairly amusing!) story of how insecurity sent me spiraling into some truly irrational behavior. I also give some tips on how to stop the vicious cycle of self-judgement! By directing attention away from the stressful chatter of the mind we can move toward feeling grounded in the body - but it's not easy. I also talks about bringing energy toward what we want to create versus what we don't need and learning to appreciate the quite moments while struggling with sleep deprivation️ Tune in NOW!

Baby smiles are the best kinds️ I am SO grateful to partner with @Walgreens to promote their work with Vitamin Angels! It's easy to take for granted just how good we have it. I had an easy pregnancy and a healthy baby and when I was pregnant, I had no problem affording and getting access to the proper nutrition and prenatal vitamins I needed to stay healthy and energized as the months progressed. Unfortunately, not every mother is so lucky. When you buy your vitamins from Walgreens they will make a donation to help mothers and children receive the life-changing vitamins and nutrients they need to lead healthy lives. Together they have helped over 123 million children around the globe!! #prenatal #vitamins #health #motherhood #support #ad

We made it to Öland! Drove all day. Everything is beautiful. It is! Everything is beautiful. The hard stuff, too. Feeling so grateful for these moments... I know they are fleeting. Before going to bed tonight, repeat to yourself: thank you, thank you, thank you. You have so much to be grateful for - don't forget it. x #gratitude #practice #love

Guess who slept all night long!!?? NOT US! Hehe. Bit we had a way, way better night. Up to feed three times only so pretty good compared to this last week! I feel like a brand new person today. Had a healing massage this morning and took a vinyasa class as a treat - feeling rested and happy! Realized that in the midst of sleep deprivation I've managed to take three studio classes in three days and somehow magically also getting some work done, too. See - all I needed was a few hours of rest to start seeing the positive side of life againWhat can you give yourself today to help bring some light and clarity into your life? Find something - a nap, a delicious meal, a yoga class, a walk, a treat... And go do it. Sometimes, just one tiny act of self-care can turn everything around! xo️ #selfcare #thankgodforsleep #selflove #motherhood

This is a fake picture. Swipe left for truth Shark baby hasn't slept in almost an entire week. I think now it has more to do with jet lag than anything but it's ROUGH. Normally I do nights on my own because "what's the point in waking Dennis up when I'm just breastfeeding anyway" buuut now it's gotten to the point now where I lie there awake, angry - angry! - at my husband for sleeping peacefully while baby fusses and kicks her legs around all night long. So! Last night I made him stay up with me to help Big mistake(huge) (yes that was a pretty woman reference) - this man cannot cope without sleep. Not even a little bit! Today I've dragged around two babies We took this photo at lunch after struggling through the hardest day ever and we look like two totally normal happy people so I can't post it in good faith when in reality we are so exhausted we almost fell asleep sitting up on the subway and we've snapped at each other too many times to count today. God. WE NEED SLEEP! This guy is doing a full Iron Man on Saturday and I'm leading a retreat on Thursday and aside from that, if I don't get a few straight hours of rest I think I'm going to do something wildly odd like forget to put pants on and leave the house or leave all the faucets in the apartment on (both of these things happened today). Tonight my mom is going to try to take the baby and we'll see what happens. I'm skeptical. Help us pray to all the sleep gods please! Ok thx bye #teamnosleep #sendhelp #sleepregression #helpppppppp #nobullshitmotherhood

When you're going to Sweden and you're so excited you can barely contain yourself We fly in a few hours! Stockholm and Öland see you soon. We're just two flights, 5,400 miles and 20 hours or so away My mantra for this trip is "lätt som en plätt!" - easy as pie! Or easy as a tiny pancake, to be more precise... Baby is going to sleep ALL FLIGHT LONG (it's a night flight, 7pm-11am) with small breaks for play and feeding. Yes. Easy as pie! (If I tell myself enough I'm hoping I'll actually start to believe it) Photo by the lovely @mikaelgfoto back when I was still blonde #europetrip #lealunatravels #motherhood #deepbreaths #love

HAPPY PODCAST DAY!!!! In this weeks podcast I bring up something I've been dealing with lately: feeling taken advantage of. Unfortunately his is a pattern I keep repeating in my life and I'm trying to make sense of how to balance my giving with receiving. I often find myself in situations and relationships where I give too much of myself until I'm emotionally exhausted - and then I snap. I want to find balance and surround myself only with people, both in business and personally, who are a YES in my life and who fill me up vs making me feel drained. In his podcast episode I share a few very hard lessons I've had to learn in the yoga industry and give a couple of heavy examples of how I was taken advantage of by people/brands/companies because I was too naive for my own good. I also talk about forgiveness and how I know when I've truly forgiven someone after having been hurt (while recording the podcast I realized I haven't forgiven at all as much as I'd like to think!) We also discuss how to break patterns that keep manifesting in our lives, angel cards, the struggle of having a big team of employees and more. Tune in now!

Good morning, world! Im starting the day with coffee and the worlds happiest baby (who literally wakes up smiling every morning - stoked to be the team leader of #teamnosleep !) I've had a rough week and a hard time balancing my output with my input. Giving a little too much of myself right now and working a little too hard. Waking up 5+ times a night doesn't help! So, even though I have a huge to-do list before our flight to Sweden tomorrow... I'm taking the day off to just enjoy Lea Luna. No agenda. Just us two. Let's see where the day takes us!️ Wishing you all a beautiful Thursday #iturtleyloveyou

My Women's Health cover is out! Such a fun shoot. Thank you @erikakitsgolevik for putting a brand new mom on the cover and for such a beautiful interview inside the magazine. For every day that passes I feel more and more strongly that we need a REVOLUTION when it comes to promoting self love and body positivity in this world! I dream of starting my own magazine dedicated solely to wellbeing (inner and outer!), wholeness and love. Let's see what can be manifested here #covershoot #magazine #womenshealth #sweden #bodypositivity #love

Yoga teacher. Writer. CEO. Podcaster. Entrepreneur. Wife. Studio owner. Mom! I'm juggling a lot of titles these days️ This is a big year for me business wise - in so many ways. We are expanding and launching some super exciting new things this yearFirst yoga teacher training coming up. Online store in the making. Sparkling gems on the way. New book being written. New online classes being produced. The Aruba studio has been open for eight months now and even though it's not been without its challenges, I'm super proud of our team for creating and maintaining such a beautiful space. I love manifesting magic! But I could never do it without a global team supporting me and saying yes to all my crazy ideas. Grateful for all. Really. So grateful! Thank you thank you thank you️ #entrepreneurship #yoga #yogagirl #love #goteam

LOOK WHO'S SITTING UP! It fully happened today! She can steady herself now and shifts front to back, working to balance and really finding her center. Just a day ago she'd just fall flat forward but now she sits upright! For little moments at a time but it's really happening!!! Ah!!! The excitement is real! 4.5 months. My little angel baby. And yes it feels SUPER weird to edit on little light glints on her tiny almost-not-visible little vagine (in our family we call it a vagine, pronounced like tagine the Moroccan dish We also sing songs about vagine cream when we change her diaper. Sooo many inside jokes here. But it's the cutest word!). So. You pretty much only see folds (so many!) but I know if I didn't edit it this comment section would go nuts. And some privacy is good yes yes - even though I think having to hide a tiny baby's private parts is having to play along with the whole idea of it being sexualized... Surrendering to it. Sort of the way porn and giant pushed up boobs are ok but pictures of mothers nursing their babies aren't if they show even the hint of a nipple. Our society is messed up! Anyway. Back to smiling, sitting-upright, naked baby Luna. SHE IS SO AMAZING I CANT EVEN TAKE IT!🦋️ Over and out #lealuna #sitting #nakedbabiesarethebestbabies #beachday #happiness #freethevagine

Sneakily pretending to be tourists at high-rise hotels... Third day in a row! Today we are enjoying The Marriott. I think we take up so much space with our stroller and diaper bags and beach towels and stuff that no one even thinks to guess that we don't belong The first rule of being sneaky is to do it with confidence! Oh, and hope that none of the 2.1 million people following us on here work at this hotel... My mom and sister leave tomorrow so we are squeezing everything we can out of this staycation. I have a full week of work ahead and then it's back to Europe! Come practice with me at @island.yoga tomorrow morning if you're on the island. Oh and check out my insta story for the funniest GoT moment EVER (don't look if you haven't seen the ending of season 5!) x #poolday #pretendtourists #hotelhopping #staycation #islandvibes #aruba

Grateful for all that is and all that once was. It's taken me 28 years but I've finally realized: this moment is far too beautiful to linger with the echo of regret. All that's been was... Because it simply had to be. I don't know what tomorrow holds. But I know I'm happy I get to be right here right now.

Morning snuggles Our bedroom is my favorite room in the house... And breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Does this mean I'm a morning person now? I used to love sleeping in but now, even if Luna sleeps much longer some days, I'm wide awake at 6am. Coffee + almond milk has replaced the hot water with lemon routine that I've kept for almost an entire decade... Being on team no sleep also means you join #teamnotwithoutmycoffee But no matter what, the moment I get out of bed I put on my yoga pants. Today I'm taking the 9.30am class at @island.yoga - I always make sure to practice early in the day! Are you rolling out your mat today? When? If you want to stay in your PJ's all weekend you can always practice with me on www.oneoeight.com️ Happy Saturday! #goodmorning #routines #yogaeverydamnday

HAPPY PODCAST DAY EVERYONE!! In today's episode I talk about vulnerability and something we all need to work on: owning our own sh*t. Are you struggling in a relationship right now? Dealing with drama? Feeling angry, frustrated, disappointed? The "normal" is projecting your frustrations onto other people - finding reasons all around you as to why you feel the way you feel. "He did this" or "she did that" - the should haves, could haves, would haves. I'm deep in practice right now exploring the reverse: what am I feeling within and how is that manifesting around me? How do I self-sabotage and why? And where can I invite space and a deeper level of consciousness to use these challenges to grow and evolve? In this episode we get into the nitty gritty of day-to-day challenges and introduce the idea of allowing vulnerability to guide you toward a sense of peace and wellbeing in your relationships. Tune in now! Click the link in bio to listen in on iTunes or go to www.rachelbrathen.com for all podcast providers. Enjoy!️ #yogagirlpodcast #fromtheheart #podcast #vulnerability #love

Lea Luna on the beach today️ Here is a little baby update....! She doesn't stop smiling all day long. Seriously! It's amazing. Happiest baby of all time. She's in this super funny phase right now where she laughs at everyone that looks at her. And she drools. My god, the drool We still co-sleep and she alternates between sleeping super well all night long some days and waking up every single hour to feed on others... I'm learning how to go with the flow and to embrace the fact that there is no such thing as solid routine with this little one! As soon as I get used to something she changes it up. Keeps us on our toes️ She's tasting little sips of water now and is super into everything we eat and drink... I think this weekend we're going to give her her first taste of solid food! I think mashed carrot, or potato maybe? I have this feeling that once we give her a taste of solids she is going to go NUTS. I'll film it so we can share Oh and people ask what kind of sunscreen I use on the baby... The answer is none! Just lots of shade, hats and awesome looking swimwear Eventually I'll probably have to succumb to using sunscreen but I'm yet to find something completely organic free of harmful chemicals that works well and doesn't smear on like a thick white paste. If you have suggestions send them our way! Ok, time for game of thrones and vegan ice cream. Hope you're all having an awesome Thursday night! x (had to edit that because I literally don't know what day it is anymore) #babyupdate #lealuna #beachbaby #organic #natural #motherhood #happiness
