Have you heard of Jessamyn Stanley? If you haven’t, here are 5 reasons why we are totally obsessed with her and why you should be too.
1) SHE PUSHES HER OWN BOUNDARIES
Although she refers to herself as someone who always sets boundaries on herself, she fights against this habit by providing yoga classes that help others push beyond their own capabilities and embracing who they are.
2) SHE SPEAKS HER TRUTH
From her issues dealing with diets to her thoughts on body image, Jessamyn has no fear in letting everyone know how she feels on today’s plus size movement and society’s way of dealing with it.
3) SHE IS RAW
Jessamyn has no filter. She says all and exposes all without fear. We wouldn’t have her any other way.
4) SHE PRIORITISES HER INNNER STRENGTH
Her approach to yoga and teaching promotes the thought of “ How do I feel?” rather then “ How do I look”. She focuses on mental health and inner strength. So, not only are her teachings amazing for the body and mind, but they are also a great self-help tool!
5) SHE HAS A HATE / LOVE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOGA
Despite her total dedication to this discipline, Jessamyn’s first introduction to yoga was not as adoring. At first, she was actually repulsed by it, a feeling many of us who have tried yoga or practice it regularly can relate to.
