Swedish native Rachel Brathen is a New York Times best-selling author, serial entrepreneur and international yoga teacher residing in Aruba.
After moving to Aruba early 2010 she started teaching yoga full time on this Caribbean island. Her classes are a dynamic Vinyasa Flow integrating alignment, core work, and breathing techniques with basic poses and creative sequencing. With over two million followers in social media, Brathen shares pieces of her life with the world every day and constantly travels the globe to connect with her community.
"I was introduced to Barncancerfonden through my mom and the work she has done with her company Cuddlings. Being passionate about supporting the fight against child hood cancer is such an obvious thing - no child should have to suffer through the atrocities of cancer! As a new mom, I cannot imagine the pain of having to watch my little fight such a terrifying illness. Whatever I can do to bring awareness to this cause I will. Yoga is a wonderful tool to bring a global community together! Together, we can make a difference. Let’s step on our mats and help make a change."

Cuddlings AB is a Swedish innovative company with an award winning product, Cuddly bandaids (plasters/strips) that support children emotionally. A Cuddly bandaid is a small friend to pet and cuddle with when the child is afraid, worried or sad.
They have proved to be of great value during examinations and treatments for children with cancer, both as a distraction but also as emotional support for the child.
5% of the fee (SEK 100/person) from Yoga of Hope will be transformed into Cuddly bandaids. Cuddlings will send these to pediatric oncology clinics all over the world that are based in countries where Yoga of Hope participants have reached a minimum of 100 persons; for every 100 practioners 1 hospital receives 250 Cuddly bandaids, a non-profitable principle for Cuddlings AB.
