Love yourself the way you love your babies. Your besties. Your sisters, brothers, parents, friends. Love yourself the way you love your loved ones! Give yourself the same kindness and attention and respect and care. Talk to yourself in that same loving way. Stop beating yourself up - you are doing the best you can. You have so much love to give... It’s infinite. Turn it around and bring it back to you. Fill your cup. Love and be loved. All. Is. Well. x . . . ️ #love #amor #loved #lovable #loving #selflove #seva #whole #balance #practice #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogagirl #photography #trust #truth #be #grateful

This girl. She walks up to strangers at restaurants and shows them all her teeth (she has 12 now). Every morning she wakes up smiling, asking for both Mamma and Pappa. She likes to take her time to wake up and will stay in her crib for as long as she can, arms behind her head, talking to her toys. When either of us go to the bathroom she stands outside, knocking on the door, wondering how long we’ll be (Pappa always takes too long) She holds my hand when she walks down steps, not because she needs to but because she knows it calms me (with daddy she jumps down all on her own). Every morning I give her a bowl of berries and she stands perfectly still, enjoying them one at a time, smacking her lips with contentment. She is so gentle. I wear big earrings every day and she’s not once pulled at them too hard. Every time she hears a loud noise she says “bang” and laughs. She brushes her hair with my hair brush and puts my mala beads around her neck. She loves to read, and run barefoot, and listen to music. She hates airplanes and hats and avocado (but loves guacamole). The only time she gets consistently frustrated in a day is when its time to brush our teeth - she wants to do it on her own. She wants to swim in every fountain we walk by and jump in puddles and take baths every day. She loves the water. She is so determined. She wants to put on her own shoes but always lets me help her. She talks to strangers but hides behind my legs if they are too eager to say hi back. She still gives kisses with her mouth wide open. And she knows so many words now. Yesterday she pointed at a flower and said “flower” - I don’t even know when she learned that. She is growing so fast! Every day is a marvel and a challenge and an absolute miracle. . Wherever she goes, I’ll follow. With this little hand in mine... All of life makes perfect sense. Forever grateful for you, Little Moon. . . . #lealuna #14months #lunis #littlemoon #family #toddler #parenthood #baby #motherhood #mother #city #beautiful #magic #light #love #gratitude #thankyou

A perfect Sunday Walks in the park, great coffee, sunshine and a happy baby. What else could I ask for? I have had a lot on my mind lately and a day of nothing special - that turned out special because it came without expectation - was just what I needed. Now... Baby is in bed so I’m going to scale our dirty rooftop so I can roll out my mat with the last rays of the sun Hope you are having a beautiful day too, wherever you are! x . . #sunday #coffee #summer #nature #stockholm #sweden #yoga #yogagirl #happy #simple #balance #family #love

“So then, when you die, you’re not going to have to put up with everlasting non-existing. Because that's not an experience. A lot of people are afraid that when they die they’re going to be locked up in a dark room forever and sort of undergo that. But one of the most interesting things in the world – this is yoga, this is a way of realization: Try and imagine what it will be like to go to sleep and never wake up. Think about that. Children think about that. It’s one of the great wonders of life. What will it be like to go to sleep and never wake up? And if you think long enough about that, something will happen. You will find out, among other things, that it will pose the next question to you. What was it like to wake up after having never gone to sleep? That was when you were born. You see? You cant have an experience of nothing; Nature abhors a vacuum. So after you're dead, the only thing that can happen is the same experience, or the same sort of experience of before you were born. In other words, we all know very well that after people die... Other people are born. And they're all you. Only you can only experience one at a time. Everybody is I, you all know you are you. And wheresoever beings exist throughout all galaxies it doesn't make a difference. You are all of them. And when they come into being that’s you coming into being. You know that very well.” . . . One of my favorite talks by Alan Watts, made into a perfect Savasana by MostFear (search “Love Your Existence” feat. Alan Watts by @ MoStFeAr on YouTube of Spotify to listen to the whole thing. Headphones on, sit down, close your eyes, breathe. x #yoga #realization #alanwatts #philosopher #spirituality #enlightenment #reincarnation #spirit #meditation #sunset #breathe #breath #life #sunshine #love

Say hello to little miss grumpy pants! This girl has FOUR molars coming in at the same time - four! One in each corner of her mouth I feel like sharp teeth cutting through baby gums every few months must be some sort of anatomical design flaw? I mean come on! Also, she was sick and we overdid pacifier and peppa pig (normally she never watches TV/iPad and she only has pacifier for sleep but suddenly we lost all control). So now we are having a teething peppa pig and pacifier detox all at once In funner news... I did teach her how to say poop. So there’s that. #WIN . . #lealuna #bajs #teething #toddler #grumpy #cute #adorable #nature #sharkbaby #moon #littlemoon #sweden #europe #travel #motherhood #family #love

IT’S PODCAST DAY!!! In today’s episode of the podcast I talk about feeling uprooted and ungrounded during the last couple of weeks and how I’ve struggled with feeling at home, both in my surroundings and in my body. I share the struggle that Dennis and I have in our marriage right now in that I am suddenly homesick and he is... The absolute opposite of that I actually chose to stay home instead of going to a bachelorette this weekend in the north of Sweden that I’ve been looking forward to for so long... I just couldn’t get myself to pack another bag I’ve never felt such a need to ground in my life. Let’s see how this all goes - if I got to choose right now I’d be back in my bathtub in Aruba and if Dennis gets to choose we’d spend the summer backpacking I also share my best tips for traveling and eating out when you’re vegan (and how none of them worked when we were in France lol). Tune in NOW! Link in my bio to listen or search Yoga Girl / From The Heart on Spotify or iTunes. Or go to rachelbrathen.com for a list of all podcast providers! Enjoy! x #yogagirlpodcast #podcast #fromtheheart #pod #listen #travel #yoga #vegan #meditate #meditation #peace #serenity #calm #nature #flower #flowers #life #sunshine #summer #sun #smile

You are good enough. Just the way you are. You don’t have to be thinner or more successful or have more friends or better skin. You are good enough. Now! The idea that we always have to change and fix and improve on every part of ourselves isn’t real. It feels real if you bring energy to it by obsessing over your “flaws”, constantly trying to change. The truth is this: you are lovable EXACTLY the way you are in this moment. Right here, right now. You are lovely. Just the way you are. : @wildernessstories #goodenough #lovable #lovely #love #selflove #selfcompassion #peace #balance #yogagirl #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogapose #twist #bw #photography #art #inspiration #joy #gratitude #thankyou

...because sometimes you need a spontaneous night out with your bridesmate! (a bridesmate is a bridesmaid, except a man) . . . @mathiastimell I love you and I know you don’t love social media so here is a picture of us from tonight showing our love for one another like there is no tomorrow. We’ve known each other since we were 12 (ok 13) and we are literally just the same! Thias was my first ever boyfriend - I love you to death no matter what @jstangenberg says️ friendship is all.

Team leader of #teamnosleep ladies and gentlemen!🤪 . . We made in to Sweden! How is it that every time we travel I question my life choices and decide we are NEVER going on a plane again... But then we go do it all over again? Dear God. Luni had a high fever all day and is mega teething (I think teeth further back in her mouth - are those worse?) so this trip was something special. Every challenge with her makes me question everything, not so much because of whatever struggles we have because all things considered they are minor, but because it pains me so to see her suffer. I want her to feel perfectly happy and content all the time and when she is sick and cranky I want to teleport myself back to our home and our routines in Aruba - but this is not how life works. Babies cry because they are supposed to and the idea of an all-the-time happy perfect life IS NOT REAL. And whenever I share a tricky moment I always have people telling me I’m “complaining” and “I should be more grateful” - like struggling through something, large or small, and sharing your feelings in the moment while also being grateful for the blessings you have can’t both exist at once. Sometimes I feel like I see so many moms on social media that just have it all together and they travel the world like a breeze and everything looks so easy. But I know none of that is true and I thank god for moms like @jenpastiloff who tell it like it is every damn day. Thank god for Jen. No bullshit motherhood! Also, thank god for @infinitesourceyoga @lizarch @orothschild @bluewaterlove @supermodelmomma1 @jetsetmama @thordiselva @oh_thathippiemomwlotsofkids and every mama out there that tells it like it is Now, sleep. No, food. Indian food! Then sleep. x #sweden #hyper #teamnosleep #travelday #nevernotshrieking #loudlikemama #happiness #joy #delirium #hyperactive #awake #lealuna #14months #toddler #cute #funny #love

Confession: I have never struggled so much with being vegan as I have over these past two weeks! The wedding we went to had an all-vegan dinner which was amazing but it was my only sit-down meal that didn’t require a struggle. We are in a very quaint, quiet place in the south of France and since I normally never have any issues anywhere I go I didn’t prepare more than I would traveling any other place. Normally at restaurants I glance at the whole menu, and if there isn’t a vegan meal on it I check out what ingredients are used for other things - sides, veggies, that sort of thing... And I ask the kitchen to prepare me something. Or, I’ll modify an existing dish (remove the cheese, fish, meat etc). 9 times out of 10 people are super accommodating and in bigger cities there are always types of cuisine I can count on for vegan food (Japanese, Indian, Chinese, Libanese food... The BEST) but here in this part of France it’s all French food and restaurants are not very keen to modify anything The dishes are what they are and the menu is what it is - if you don’t like it, go elsewhere. We have had a kitchen in two of the places we’ve stayed but we were only there for two days so it didn’t make sense to stock up the fridge and then have to throw away all the food. There is one place here with a vegan lasagna and I’ve had it like seven times And the restaurants here don’t do to-go food (so when it’s dinner time and we have to take baby home to sleep for the night we are shit out of luck altogether) . The supermarket here is tiny, there is no hummus, no veggie spreads.. There are vegetables and fruits obvi so baby and I have basically lived off of berries, avocados, fresh (amazing) bread and local olive oil for two weeks. The first days were amazing but if I see one more baguette I’m going to smack someone on the head with it! Anyone else with traveling food challenges?? Ah! We fly to Stockholm tomorrow and I’M SO READY! Big city food come at me🥗🥙🥞🥟 #hungry #vegan #travel #food #veganism #firstchallenge #feedme #france

Mamas and babies️ Happy Mother’s Day to all the hard-working, big-hearted superstar mamas out there! The three of us all had babies 3 months apart and these kiddos together are just the most beautiful thing. But more than anything I’m in awe of motherhood and how it’s changed us. Just a little bit️ (all in all we’re pretty much the same as when we were 16) HUG YOUR MAMA TODAY! Any mama! Motherhood comes in all shapes and forms and isn’t dependent on having birthed a child. Also - equal love to anyone who’s lost a mother, wants to be a mother, feels like a mother... Motherhood is beautiful in all ways. x #mothersday #celebrate #mama #mamahood #motherhood #magic #divinefeminine #goddess #family #woman #women #love #beautiful #nature #abundant #joy #strength #life

My little rascals️(Luni is eating watermelon, Ringo is eating the baguette she dropped on the ground a second earlier) . . . I have no words to explain this wedding weekend! It’s been so wild. And today ended with Ringo taking off and getting lost and me running around the French countryside looking for him for hours. Thank god for social media! Instagram helped bring him back This wedding and everything connected with it has had me so emotional... Will share some more photos tomorrow - I’m tired from dancing, crying, celebrating and agonizing over my speech. Everything was so beautiful and goddammit feeling his much love for the most beautiful people in the world takes a lot out of you. @orothschild @patrickbeke I love you. Time for sleep. x Photo by @sodalime_ ! #Patlivia #wedding #france #weddingweekend #family #love

remember find your center my love is just a reminder️ . . . Goodbye, LA! I’m heading back to France and Dennis and Ringo and shark baby who I miss so much I haven’t allowed myself to think about her all weekend. This is my second 2-day trip to LA in a few months and I gotta say... Next time I promise to be here a whole lot longer️ Had such a beautiful time but the 24-hour trip here and the 9-hour time difference is wild! Always love California. Right after I filmed this little snippet above we saw a school of dolphins love. Thank you @r00sje for making the crazy trip here with me and thanks @sbickle @kellybickle for being my home away from home. And thanks everyone who came to practice at the event on Saturday was so much fun to see you!

I am so goddamn sick of explaining myself. There are a million things I don’t do perfectly. I’m a yoga teacher who drinks wine and curses in every sentence. I’m an entrepreneur in a business that stems from a practice focused on non-attachment. I’m a social media influencer talking about finding presence. I mean... Who are we kidding here - Everything I do is full of contrasts! I’m loud, dramatic, intense, stubborn, jealous, sometime anxious, fearful, high-strung, controlling. I’m also compassionate, caring, supportive, peaceful, funny, intelligent, trusting. I am all of this and much more. Every day I get comments from people telling me what I’m doing wrong. My baby isn’t eating the right things, we shouldn’t fly because it’s bad for the environment, I shouldn’t partner with companies to raise money, I should quiet down, I’m working too much, I complain, I’m too much of his and not enough of that. My question here is... Is this all really a surprise, that I’m not a perfect person? Do I not spend enough time sharing the real, the good, the bad, the ugly? Is it a surprise that I am who I am? Here is the thing: I’m not here to be perfect. I’m not here to do things your way. I’m not here to please you. I’m here to do me, the way only I know how. And you either vibe with that or you don’t. If you don’t... I suggest you find another yoga girl to follow! There are about a million of them out there now Explaining myself costs me time and energy and it absolutely drains me. I wish I didn’t care about what other people think but of course I do. I’m human, like you. Here, doing my thing. And so goddamn done with being distracted. If you didn’t know... This year, we are going epic places. I need to keep my eye on the ball. Focus on the yes, not on the no. It’s a constant practice for me, learning to be ok with not being able to please everyone. But every time I bend over backwards or whenever I change even a fraction of who I am or how I want to act in the moment just to fit in or to not rub people the wrong way... It kills me. Do it enough and you won’t remember who you are anymore. So, no more quieting down. Too much is just enough. I am just enough. Like you. x

Okay so this is a photo from last week driving from Barcelona airport after yet another flight of shark baby shrieking non stop... I’m in LA right now (Dennis is driving from Amsterdam to Biarritz for @patrickbeke bachelor party) and Mormor is taking care of Luna in France but this photo is just so appropriate because TODAY IS PODCAST DAY! Last week I FORGOT about podcast day because these traveling weeks are just so intense - how I even get this podcast recorded is a damn miracle @dennisfromsalad is my guest on the pod this week and today we talk travel! We share our highs and lows about traveling, how we have ended up on opposite sides on the spectrum in terms of wanting to explore more of the world, where we envision raising Lea Luna, how we deal with travel hiccups and more. Tune in! Link in bio or search Yoga Girl Podcast on Spotify or iTunes️ . Can’t wait to be back with my favorites soon but right now I’m actually looking forward to an entire weekend of sleeping full nights, drinking as much wine as I want and taking all the yoga classes Los Angeles has to offer I’m teaching at the Propel Festival tomorrow but will be hanging around Santa Monica until Monday if anyone wants a hug Happy to be here! #travel #explore #family #adventure #love

And now, here I am. Grass beneath my feet. Olive trees and figs and fresh lavender as far as the eye can see. Baby sleeping soundly. Body craving movement. All. Is. Well. . I used to feel like such a free spirit, like I was meant to wander and travel the world and never settle down. It was part of my identity, going from place to place. I was always proud to have filled a passport with stamps and would feel so accomplished about having to get a new one, or how one year Dennis and I spent less than six weeks at home. The more places I went, the more things I saw, the more worldly and experienced I felt. I had years where home was my suitcase and whichever next destination sounded promising. Now... It’s different. I’m different. We have a baby. Little moon. She changed everything. All the lessons I used to learn traveling I’m learning at home, and then some. And as much as I would love to cling to my old identity and embody the idea of a “free spirited family” where we see all corners of the world and keep traveling to teach and tour and explore... I don’t want to. I miss home. Here is a brand new truth: I don’t love traveling anymore (can’t believe I just said that)! I do, however, love arriving. And here I am. In my body. Settling. Remembering that wherever I go, there I am. So much yet to learn. x #yogaeverydamnday
