In this episode, I speak with award-winning yoga instructor, author and advocate, Jessamyn Stanley.
Regarded as a leading voice on intersectional identity and 21st-century yoga, Jessamyn has won many awards for her social influence and unique approach to wellness. With an articulate message of representation and visibility, Jessamyn also speaks across the country, advocating for body acceptance, female empowerment as well as African American and LGBTQ inclusion.
Jessamyn has been featured in many media outlets including The New York Times, Good Morning America, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Allure, Buzzfeed, Shape, Out Magazine, New York Magazine, The Guardian, and Forbes. She broke boundaries for plus size bodies with her 2019 cover of Yoga Journal. In early 2020, Jessamyn was featured in Adidas' Reimagine Sport Campaign, challenging old stereotypes and celebrating movement of all kinds.
