Episode 22: Rachel Brathen – Staying True to Your Values in the Face of Success

You might know Rachel Brathen as “Yoga Girl” on Instagram — she’s one of the original yoga insta-stars and has 2 million followers. Two million! That’s crazay! And yet, despite this quick rise to fame, Rachel is incredibly down-to-earth and not afraid to say that the superficial side of social media can suck the life out of a person from time to time. I wanted to know what makes Rachel tick, so I tried to dig into how she’s become the teacher (and student) she is today.

Rachel and I talk about:

* How a 10-day Osho meditation retreat changed the course of her entire life
* Her initial yoga practice, which was therapeutic and aimed toward healing debilitating back pain
* How pregnancy is changing her practice
* Why she has never started hocking products like yoga pants for other brands
* Whether or not she considers herself to be fearless
* The ingenious model behind her 109 Global Mission trips
* Her surprising advice for navigating social media as a yoga teacher

Episode 3: Jason Crandell on Navigating Life as a Modern Yoga Teacher

Hello peoples!

In this week’s episode, you’ll get to hear the dulcet tones of my husband and I talking yoga. We had a great time and we covered everything from the concept of “yogalebrity,” to common misconceptions created by social media to navigating the life and work as a new yoga teacher.

Plus! Jason created some bonus content related to the episode, 5 Tips to Support New Yoga Teachers.

Enjoy it and let us know what you think in the comments. AND, if you have questions related to this episode that you’d like to ask Jason, please follow us on Twitter and tweet at us @yogalandpodcast.

“My concern is that we may think that social media is a more accurate reflection of an actual life than it is. It’s not a reflection of an actual life. It’s a very orchestrated reflection of someone’s life. We can’t expect our lives to be a reflection of this thing that is a curated, only partially real phenomenon.”
