Jessamyn Stanley is making history and breaking new grounds in the yoga world with her body.

The 27-year-old certified Yoga instructor and body positive advocate shows that you can do whatever you set out to do regardless of what you look like.

Jessamyn is clearly a source of motivation and inspiration as her classes all over encourage more people to join in the art.

Speaking on Yoga and her passion for this, she says;

Don’t just go with the first studio throwing around free guest passes- look for a studio whose teachers are recognized for being encouraging and positive. The outlook of a yoga teacher has just as much of an effect on your practice as the clothes you wear or the amount of water you drink. Once you find a studio, give yourself at least one week of classes, consisting of at least three classes before determining if you want to continue. If you’ve never tried yoga, your first class might be a little more intense than you’re expecting which might lead you to set fire to your yoga mat and curse the whole practice to hell.

The tons of photos, short clips on her Instagram and videos on Youtube on Yoga inspire people to step out whatever is holding them and embrace Yoga.
