Jessamyn Stanley is a pus-size yogi who is determined to change the thin, muscular body stereotypes associated with practicing yoga. As a certified yogi, Stanley created her own brand called 'Fat Femme.' Through her yoga classes and online personality, she advocates for body-positivity.

As a plus-size yogi, Stanley is changing the way many people view this sport by showing them that anyone at any size can twist, bend and become more flexible with yoga. Stanley's incredible images on her Instagram page are enough to understand how unimportant size is when it comes to staying healthy and active.

Her inspirational posts and yoga classes are a way to empower women to love themselves and to lead a healthy life. Her passion for yoga and love for her body will encourage other women with lower self-esteem to see that yoga is strengthening for the body, mind and soul.
