Yoga Girl by Rachel Brathen

Rachel Brathen, Yoga Girl

Its hard not to love this girl. She is pouring out positivity and inspiration every single day on her instagram and has a huge radiant smile that is so inviting. Rachel Brathen, also known as @Yoga_Girl, has some of the most heartfealt and real captions on social media sharing thoughtful and motivational blurbs for living a life you love. Her first book, Yoga Girl, is part life story and part beginners guide to practicing yoga.

Although there is nothing in her book so profound that I haven’t already heard it somewhere else, her outpour of love can’t help but put you in a great mood. Each morning over the last week or so I would wake up, work out, and read a chapter of her book over a cup of coffee before heading to work and it really set the tone for an amazing day.

Filling out each chapter is a vegan recipe or two, pictures of yoga poses to try and what she calls loving insights which are short little wisdoms to take without you. And pictures, and pictures and more pictures of Rachel. It will not take you long to read because of every other page is a bright colorful photo from the tropical places where Rachel has lived or traveled to.

If you are feeling like you could use some inspiration in your life, then look no further than her book. Its an easy and enjoyable read. And a great way to start the day.
