Jessamyn Stanley: l'insegnante di yoga plus-size

Il suo esempio è una sfida agli stereotipi: chiunque può praticare questa attività

Jessamyn Stanley

Si può avere un corpo formoso e nello stesso tempo essere un insegnante di yoga? La risposta è si e Jessamyn Stanley, 27 anni, ne è la dimostrazione vivente.

La giovane americana, nonostante le sue forme decisamente abbondanti, è riuscita con passione, costanza e bravura, a diventare una star di questa disciplina tanto da essere seguita da ben 85 mila followers

Lontanissima dallo stereotipo che l'immaginario collettivo ha dei dei corpi degli insegnanti di yoga, Jessamyn ha dimostrato di essere agilissima e di poter assumere qualsiasi posizione di questa antica pratica come dimostrano le fotografie postate sul suo profilo Instagram.

In questo modo Jessamyn ha voluto dimostrare come lo yoga sia un’attività adatta a tutti: una sfida vinta a pieni voti. 

Thanks to @unclerush, @tarastiles, and @nymag, I am feeling a lot of love from all points of the globe. I can't tell you how happy I am to see so many people engaging in dialogue about body issues in the #yoga community- this is the dialogue that leads to change.This is the dialogue that fosters a diverse and widespread yoga community, not pictures and inspirational quotes. I am grateful to be part of a community that began long before I ever stepped on a yoga mat. Warriors like @diannebondyyoga, @curvyyoga, & @amber_karnes have been stoking the flames of this conversation for so long and I'm happy to be one of many baby samurais in their kick ass body positive army. @Nymag, one of my favorite magazines, asked my thoughts about the instagram yoga community and the evolution of #fatyoga- click the link in my instagram header to read the article! Also, this photo is #tbt to being a curvy inverted statue with my love @nolatrees. PRO TIP- check out her website (nolatreesyoga.com) for a sneak peak of our upcoming teaching tour dates. Official dates and registration details are coming soon! Leggings- @lineagewear

I really love teaching #yoga. Today's classes really hit me, y'all. I feel so good right now. It is so incredible to feel a profound connection with other people through something which is so much bigger than any of us could even try to imagine. I have so much love right now- love for all of my teachers (OK BUT ESPECIALLY ALL OF MY @ASHEVILLEYOGACENTER TEACHERS AND DOUBLE ESPECIALLY @THE_TAO_OF_KIM BECAUSE SHE CHANGED MY FUCKIN' LIFE), and love for all of my students and friends and family and really just errbody. Because this is an incredible practice, and I am so excited to feel like this for the rest of my life. Namaste, y'all. (Unrelated, I had a massive #pinchamayurasana breakthrough last week- for some reason, if I look straight back as opposed to focusing on a point on the ground, balance is WAAAAAAY easier.) (Umm, now I'm having that feeling where everyone else already knew something and I'm the last one to figure it out. If so- that's cool, too.) Shorts- @fractal.9

I took a little break from the internet this weekend. I mean, I likelovehate social media as much as the next late twentysomething but JEEZ- a femme can only take so much 'internet-ing' before she needs to get outside and feel the grass under her toes, ya dig? In addition to spending time with my loved ones, eating @krispykreme doughnuts, and sunning myself by the banks of the Eno River, I spent the past few days catching up on projects that slid to my back burner while I was in Asheville. Of course, I would love to spill the beans on everything new and exciting to come, but I'm sworn to secrecy on several different topics. HOWEVER, I am SO STOKED to announce that my #yoga teenage dream is about to come true- my long distance yoga love @nolatrees & I are hitting the road....together....to teach joint yoga workshops! Dana & I are getting pumped to bring our body positive yoga mission to as many of you as humanly possible. However, if we hold a workshop, would you come? What studios/cities would you like to see us in/at? If you're too shy to write in the comments, feel free to shoot me an e-mail @ mynameisjessamyn@gmail.com. The instagram yoga community has blessed us with the opportunity to find kindred spirits across the globe- I think it's high time we take the #bodylove yoga movement into the stratosphere. #effyourbeautystandards #honoryourcurves Pants- @lineagewear P.S. via @nolatrees- if you're a studio owner, e-mail us!
