This #GirlBoss Yogi is Teaching Women to Love Their Curves

Self-described “yoga enthusiast,” “fat femme,” and “body positive advocate” Jessamyn Stanley is breaking barriers and letting the world know that you don’t have to be rail thin to succeed at the practice.

Her confidence, wisdom and all around badass-ness is exactly why she’s our Fitstagram Friday feature! @mynameisjessamyn

Though her first yoga experience was “hell on earth,” she loves doing it now and would like to encourage women of all body types to love themselves even if they don’t have the stereotypical tiny yoga figure.

Jessamyn is kind of our new spirit animal.
