Korean Yoga Instructor gets thousands of views online and we’re not 100% sure why
Fitness models and Instagram influencers are a dime a dozen these days, but it seems there’s a market for few more. South Korean Fitness junkie and Yoga Instructor Lee Sohee has been making waves recently from her base in San Diego California.
Sohee now boasts over 233K followers on Instagram and doesn’t seem to know what all the fuss is about. That’s probably what’s lacking in the online world, a little bit of bloody humility ay? Nah, yeah, her followers would almost all be yoga enthusiasts and fitness nuts for sure ay?
Now ya might not be able to understand a bloody word she says, but if ya just watch closely, pay close attention to her body and movements, I reckon you’ll pick it up reasonably quickly. And unless you’re blind Freddy, it’ll become heaps clear why she’s getting so popular online.

My background includes struggling with an eating disorder for eight years, working with many online coaches and seeing what worked and what didn’t. I believe in moderation and sustainability in a fitness lifestyle, and I’ve tried to model that through my own cross-country moves, bikini shows, powerlifting, while nursing injuries, and going back to school.

Years ago, in my early teens, I was deep in the throes of my eating disorder. I remember being so terrified of the scale that I would go on a 3-hour run before I weighed myself just so I could shed water and get a lower reading. This year is the first time in my life that I’ve intentionally put on weight. And while the scale weight has gone up over the past six months, so has my happiness. I despise the notion that changes in scale weight necessarily mean that you have to feel a certain way. Scale goes up – panic, stress, angst. Scale goes down – excitement, glee, joy. What? Fuck that. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been at age 29, and this is also the heaviest I’ve been in 5 years. The two are NOT mutually exclusive. Truth be told, I’m feeling incredibly fulfilled with my career and my relationships with the important people in my life – and these have had absolutely nothing to do with the shape and size of my body. I look happy. I look healthy. And at the end of the day, what is more important than that? I could wake up 3lbs heavier tomorrow and nothing – NOTHING – in my life would change. You see, I’ve learned to not let my bodyweight define me in any capacity. It can be interesting data point, and it can certainly be useful when chasing body composition goals, but even then, in no way does it dictate your self-worth. By the way, what you want to do with your body is entirely your business. You’re allowed to want to lean out, or maintain your current shape, or gain muscle – or even gain body fat. It’s all gravy, baby. I’m eating, lifting, and thrive thrive THRIVING. #eatliftthrive
Apart from looking the goods and her fitness philosophy, Sohee’s gotta be doing something right, cause as of January 2019 she’s been onboard with @womenshealthmagazine as a Fitness Advisor. In the competitive world of Instagram modelling and bloody influencers, this def gives her some street cred.
