    Living a Low Toxin Life: Making Decisions Today for A Better Tomorrow

    Living a Low Toxin Life: Making Decisions Today for A Better Tomorrow

    True health is not merely an absence of illness. It’s an overwhelming feeling of being content in every aspect of your life. It’s thriving. It’s feeling GOOD! This may sound impossible to strive for, but it’s what we all deserve - and it’s the complete opposite of what is happening in the world right now.
    Join Rachel on the podcast today as we journey toward health. She shares her own story, from growing up in Sweden living an unhealthy lifestyle, to making a change overnight to a raw vegan diet in Costa Rica. As she transitioned to highly-processed, nonorganic foods in Aruba, then discovered toxic mold in her home, she discusses where she is now: the foods she eats, the supplements she takes, and the intuitive connection with her body she is beginning to feel again.
    Why can it be so difficult to make healthy choices? Why do we fluctuate from day to day, season to season, and year to year? Don’t beat yourself up if you are in a rut with your health right now. This is a complex issue that is rooted in public policy, privilege, and even our genetics. But research shows that lifestyle choices do make a crucial difference - and so do our voices in standing up for ourselves and our communities.
    Tune in today for an important episode that will inspire you to overhaul your health practices and reconnect with that intuitive voice inside that knows what to do. There may not be one magical cure for all, but there is something that is just right for you. If you know better, you can do better. And it’s by having these conversations that we can make a change.

    Sitting in Silence: How To Deepen Your Spiritual Practice

    Sitting in Silence: How To Deepen Your Spiritual Practice

    The world feels so isolating sometimes. We can turn on the news to see one terrible thing happening after another. We open our social media to find cruelty and separation. It’s so easy to lose faith in the midst of it all - our fragile hearts aren’t supposed to take it. So, how do we make it through? How can we continue to show up for others without depleting ourselves in the process?
    We turn inward. We meet each other in the silence. What connects us to the whole must be what connects us to each other. Our sacred practices, which often feel selfish and a means of escape, might just be the remedy to a world craving a deeper meaning to it all.
    In today’s episode, Rachel is feeling the watery energy of the full moon in Pisces approaching us. It’s the perfect time to contemplate the bigger picture. Tune in to sense your connection to others, to contemplate your place in the universe, and to cherish the part of you that is constantly seeking it out.

    Mothering Ourselves - A Fever, A Tea Ceremony, and God

    Mothering Ourselves - A Fever, A Tea Ceremony, and God

    Sometimes the biggest realizations come to us at the most challenging times. Today’s episode of the Yoga Girl Podcast is no different. Returning to life after a sickness and fever brought her to a different portal, Rachel has a lot to share. From lucid dreams, to big transitions, and all her tests coming back negative - was this past week an ascension? A shedding of layers? A rebirth? A coming home?
    Sitting down for tea, it all came together. In this episode, you will get a glimpse into an aspect of Rachel’s life she has never shared before: her tea ceremony. This ritual tied together with a newfound vulnerability brought her to her knees and made everything come full circle. Sometimes we have to completely fall apart to put ourselves back together. Sometimes we have to learn to mother ourselves when our inner child is scared and fragile. And sometimes, we have to go to the depths of the portal, to the brink of our edges, to find God.
