Known worldwide as @yoga_girl on Instagram, Rachel Brathen is not only one of the most impressive yogis around, but she is easily one of the most inspiring and radiant people I have ever met. 

Rachel was in Rhode Island to teach a series of workshops before heading off to New York City and then Los Angeles for more teaching with her husband Dennis and ridiculously adorable dog Ringo

Rachel and I spent the morning before she left on the beach, in Warwick, Rhode Island.

The scenery was gorgeous, it was a perfect day, and Rachel (of course) was right at home by the water, although it wasn't quite as warm as her home in Aruba.
