Jessamyn Stanley is a woman who is helping break the stereotypical norm in the yoga world. She is showing us that yes, yoga can have curves and it can be downright sexy owning them!
That time I woke up at 4am, decided to practice yoga in my underwear on the windowsill of my Singapore hotel room and got caught giving a ridiculous amount of face while hooking up the Bluetooth remote. Jessamyn2k16 needs to take several seats, tbh. #jessjetset (And to the person who asked why I wear thongs in yoga photos, I am not wearing a thong. I was just blessed with an ass that'll swallow up boy shorts & turn them into g-strings. 🍰🍰🍰) Bra- @hipsandcurves Undies- @americanapparelusa Socks- @forever21 #jessjetset
Jessamyn has over 300,000 followers on her instagram account. At 300 lb. she is powerhouse of strength and her followers let her know their appreciation for being a role model in a typical stick figure world of yoga. Yoga definitely is for every body type and we are glad Jessamyn is proving that by example.
That time I was legit meditating on The High Line and was so overwhelmed by the universe that I started crying about flowers but then I remembered I was surrounded by people and then someone else asked to take a selfie with me so I had to act "normal." But what the fuck is "normal." Why is it so hard for me to care about being "normal" anymore? #jessjetset
Jessamyn has written about the struggles of social media: “It is hard to be confident in yourself. Social media makes it look easy and sometimes even glamorous, but it’s not. My struggle towards self-confidence and self-love is constantly evolving. In my experience, self-hate doesn’t miraculously go away.”
The yoga star has made a group of friends throughout the U.S. as she travels between shoots, classes, and workshops. She has worked with the Codyapp team as well as Cosmopolitan among others.
