Jessamyn Stanley isn't some type of unicorn, although as she travels the country, many people are just as surprised to see her. She's a "fat," black lesbian who teaches yoga. Yes, she calls herself fat and embraces the word. "There are tons of fat black women, men and all kinds of people who are out here trying to teach and trying to live their practices," she said.
She's the author of "Every Body Yoga" and has more than 300,000 followers on Instagram.
She's my hero.
