This Swedish Yoga-Loving Pilot Is Rocking Instagram With Her Off-Duty Selfies

Maria Pettersson is no ordinary airline pilot.

This 32-year-old Swede from Gothenburg inspires over 200k followers on Instagram with her positivity, yoga poses and adventure-filled life.

Maria says she started using Instagram after moving to Italy when she started working as a commercial pilot with Ryanair.

Instagram was a way for her to share scenes of her day-to-day life with friends and family back home.

Since then, she’s built up a fan base online, and it’s not hard to see why.

Maria is not just showing us the life of an airline pilot outside the cockpit, she’s inspiring girls to reach greater heights as well.

Whether she’s doing a few yoga poses on a rocky beach…

Or paddle-boarding through deep blue waters…
