HERspectives Ep.5 : Jessamyn Stanley and the power of visibility, body positivity, and yoga
A few months ago, my facebook feed served up a video of a very full-bodied African American woman doing a perfect headstand – in her underwear. The video also included a short clip of the woman talking about her relationship with body image, her ongoing journey of self-acceptance, and the purpose she has found in being a visible reminder that yoga is for everybody, and more importantly, for every Body. In this episode of HERspectives, I’m chatting with Jessamyn Stanley, an internationally recognized yoga teacher and award-winning Instagram star. Recently, I had the privilege of reading a pre-release of her new book, Every Body Yoga, and then interviewing her while she was in Nashville kicking-off a summer-long book signing and promotional tour.
