8. More to Love Yoga
Rachel Estapa is the founder of More to Love. I’ve been a fan of her and her passion for empowering people to love and appreciate their bodies for several years. As she says on her website, after yo-yo dieting as a teenager and into adulthood, Rachel took stock of her life and realized she wasn’t happy. Part of her journey to body acceptance was taking up yoga.
