From Spain to Indonesia, model and yoga instructor Tatiana Panakal is unafraid of showing off her true self; her social media encourages confidence in oneself with uplifting messages conveyed through stunning images that inspire many of her 100K+ Instagram followers daily. She definitely reminds us not to be scared; she’s like, “Screw what other people think — you are perfect in your own right! Let go of all hesitations and show the world how awesomely confident you can be!” We really love this!
It’s not about trying to be smaller or fit in with others; it’s about celebrating and being true to ourselves - no matter what others think! Ditching other people’s opinions is super freeing because things that might intimidate others can inspire and empower us.
Among the various beautiful photos of Tatiana, we were particularly struck by the post where she returned to Bali. We like to imagine that she had traveled this way from Spain to Bali, with all her physical presence heedless of the more or less benevolent judgment she might have aroused.
I know; I can hear the criticism already! Easy to be positive and confident with yourself when you have her body!
I disagree; despite what some may think, I'm sure that Tatiana's confidence does not come from her physique but rather from a refusal to shy away or hide any part of herself. She embraces who she is and lives life fearlessly despite the stares that might make others self-conscious.
In a time when it can be easier to stay in your comfort zone and outwardly conform, Tatiana's photos push us to take it a step further: it's time we all embraced our most vital selves and thrust ourselves into 2023 to live more fiercely!
Tatiana is an undeniable force to be reckoned with, owning a physical presence that speaks for itself and oozes confidence. Her Instagram profile allows you to experience these photoshoots firsthand - trust us when we say there are some stunning looks here waiting to wow!
