The yoga lover gets around the Instagram’s strict no nudity rules by hiding her intimate parts with a help of various angles, the use of shadows, and photoshop. All the photos are taken at her home with the help of her boyfriend. The aim is not to make them appealing on the most primal level, but to inspire people to lead healthier and happier lives.

“My biggest issue in the past was that I saw faults in my body all the time, and that made it impossible for me to love myself fully,” she told NY Mag. “Yoga helped me accept my body exactly the way it is. With my account I want to inspire people to realize that everybody is very beautiful and capable of [doing] amazing things with their bodies.”
