This 300-Pound Woman Shows Of Her Incredible Flexibility As She Can Put Her Legs Behind Her Head and Becomes A Certified Yoga Instructor!


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!

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.

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.
