Plus-size yoga enthusiast shows us that fitness is for everyone, regardless of body type

27-year-old yogi Jessamyn Stanley isn’t like most of her colleagues. As you can see, she’s not your typical lean, toned yoga enthusiast – but for Stanley and her more than 55,000 Instagram followers, they don’t mind at all!

The North Carolina-based body positive advocate started doing Bikram yoga a few years ago after acquiring a Groupon pass. Stanley immediately fell in love with it and she soon started appreciating her body more, posting pics of herself doing different poses on Instagram.

The self-confessed ‘fat femme’ soon drew attention from many who shared the same problem – of being judged for their size while working out. Stanley, in response, teaches these people to be confident with what they have. ‘Your body is not standing in your way. Only your mind is standing in your way’, she says.

Find out more about Jessamyn Stanley here in a recent interview with NY Mag.
