Episode 46: Jessamyn Stanley’s Every Body Yoga

Hello Yogalandia!

This week, I talk to the super sharp and funny Jessamyn Stanley. Jessamyn is a world-traveling yoga teacher who has a new book, Every Body Yoga. I love Jessamyn’s story and she writes about it with such grace and humor in her book: A few years ago she decided to document her yoga practice on a brand new app called Instagram, having no idea that within a few years she would garner nearly 300,000 followers, many of whom begged her to become a yoga teacher. We talk about the evolution of her yoga practice from her early days as a Bikram yogi to a vinyasa teacher, how yoga studios can make efforts toward being more inclusive of different body types and capabilities,and her quest to stay grounded as she spreads her message that, indeed, yoga is for everyone.
