You might know Swedish-born Rachel Brathen as an internet yoga sensation, but do you know her goat, Penny Lane? The Aruba resident received the goat as a gift from her surfer husband Dennis last Christmas and, since since then, Rachel and Penny have taken to doing yoga together. Rachel is a published author, and she and her husband also run an animal rescue center.
“Sometimes we get so caught up in what we want to change that we start seeing flaws instead of focusing on getting inspired to move and feel good,” Rachel explained to Metro. “It’s important to celebrate the good things. Your body does so much for you every day… It’s so much easier to stick to an exercise routine when we appreciate what our bodies can do.” Truer words have rarely been spoken!
