Rachel Brathen

Founder & CEO, Certified Yoga Teacher

Hi! I'm Rachel Brathen; a Swedish native, New York Times best-selling author, serial entrepreneur and international yoga teacher living in Aruba with my husband Dennis and our baby girl Lea Luna. After graduating from school in Stockholm, I traveled to Costa Rica where I found the joy of incorporating yoga into my everyday life. Deepening my yoga practice and beginning teaching, I moved to Central America where I spent years exploring the intricate studies of yoga and spirituality. After moving to Aruba early 2010, I began teaching yoga full time. My classes are a dynamic Vinyasa Flow integrating alignment, core work, and breathing techniques with basic poses and creative sequencing, but asana is only a small piece of the work we do in the yoga shala. I incorporate holistic therapeutic tools like sharing, active listening and journaling in every session and there is a deep level of heart healing at the center of every class I teach. My classes serve the purpose of deepening a connection not only to ourselves, but with the people around us. I love to share pieces of my life with the world! I do so every day through social media and you will find me traveling all over the world to connect with the amazing community I call home. I am the founder of www.oneOeight.com; an online platform for yoga, meditation, and healing. As the most successful crowd-funded yoga project of all time, the platform is made up of a vast community of dedicated practitioners from all over the world looking to cultivate balance, create space for inner healing and deepen their yoga practice. With an amazing team of experienced guides and teachers, oneOeight offers heart-centered classes designed to fit the always evolving needs of body, mind and soul. In 2016, Dennis and I opened Island Yoga - the largest yoga studio in the Caribbean, boasting two shalas, a boutique, an organic café and offices for our team. Visit www.islandyoga.com for information on teacher trainings, workshops and to see the upcoming schedule! Giving back to the community has always been at the center of all of my initiatives – with the help of awesome staff and volunteers I run two non-profit organizations: Sgt Pepper’s Friends; an animal rescue foundation based in Aruba and Yoga Girl® Foundation, benefitting women and children in need.
