I follow a bunch of fabulous people on Instagram who promote healthy and happy living, most of which also follow a plant based diet. And of course a lot them are into yoga too. I thought I’d share some of my current favorites with you.
Rachel Brathen – Yoga Girl @yoga_girl
I’m not ashamed to admit it – Rachel Brathen is my number one inspiration, muse, queen! She is one of the first yoga personalities I started following on Instagram. Her posts offer beautiful scenery from her home in Aruba, inspiring words, and she’s working on various projects to spread yoga and healing worldwide. This summer I had the opportunity to attend a yoga class with her that absolutely floored me, and made me all the more inspired by her posts.
I just recently came across Karissa’s account and fell in love with her beautiful photos and cool style! She posts photos of her yoga and adorable duo yoga poses that she does with her cute kids. And she looks like a mermaid with her cotton candy hair and nifty yoga outfits.

My sister introduced me to this girl and I was hooked as soon as I saw her photos. This girl is super cool and obviously experienced in yoga, she’s an aerial yoga teacher and her posts mainly consist of the type of yoga poses I aspire to breathe into one day.
I’ve followed Tess for quite some time now. Her posts are a mix of beautiful scenery, home and life, and plant based food and recipes. I like her account because it’s got a nice feel good vibe to it.
Rachel is a beautiful example of how yoga can be the resolving factor in recovery from an eating disorder, or other mental struggles. Her posts are always inspirational and encouraging. Rachel’s posts are an important contrast to the ocean of social media posts causing young women to feel anxiety about their bodies and like they’re not good enough.

I love the photos this girl posts because it’s a mix of yoga and interior design in a style that I absolutely love. I daydream my way into her cosy home and draw inspiration for ideas for my own home. P.S I desperately want that awesome triangle shelf she’s got.
