“Stop for a moment.

Close your eyes.

Turn your attention inwards.

Feel your heart beating inside of your chest, the breath moving through your lungs.

Know that everything is ok.

Tell yourself: I’m ok. 

You’re here. You’re alive. There is a purpose for your being here, right now.

Even when life gets a little crazy…you’re ok.

You’ll always be.”

About Rachel Brathen

Rachel is a yogi on a world tour. Born and raised in Sweden, she currently resides in the beautiful island of Aruba where she is busy teaching yoga at a resort in the mornings, coordinating retreats at noon, taking her three somewhat crazy dogs to the beach to keep up with the surf in the afternoon and trying to survive as a vegan (where no vegetables grow!) in the evenings. She firmly believes that life is not black or white – it’s black and white and blue and yellow with rays of pink and sparkle in between. You can teach yoga and still be a party animal. Meditate and ignore your spending problems. Be vegan and eat too much chocolate. Have a Swedish passport and live in the Caribbean. You can do anything, as long as it’s you! You can find Rachel on the beach, probably practicing her Astavakrasana, or on
