170 | Jessamyn Olivia Stanley on Feminism, Yoga, Social Media Addiction, Body Positivity, + Finding Presence

This week’s conversation is with the very inspiring, Jessamyn Stanley. She breaks the norms in the industry, getting back to the inclusivity true ‘yoga’ is about. We discuss the story of how she found yoga and how it unexpectedly became a tool for not just her own transformation but eventually for others as well. While we do discuss yoga it was just a fraction of the many topics we cover in this tangential conversation  We chat about social media, feminism, body image, as well as her new book, Yoga for Everybody ,which was inspired by the questions she continued to get from her students and social media followers. She is super smart and has such incredible outlooks and perspectives on so many things that I contemplate. We cover the use of gossip in our lives, awkward situations and how to be present and ok with each moment exactly as it is (and not feel like we have to always look at our phones). One of (of the many) favorite take-aways from this conversation:  “Just put yourself in the uncomfortable situation and it will be fine.”I hope you enjoy the episode and be sure to reach out to us in the Facebook Group or on social media to let us know your favorite part of the episode!
