27 year old yoga instructor Jessamyn Stanley is a living ‘fuck you’ to the yoga-girl stereotype. Serving up awesome photos and positive energy via her Instagram account.
I constantly encounter people and businesses who give zero fucks about diversity and inclusion, especially within the #yoga community. I have pondered the reasons for this widespread discrimination and I think pondering is futile. I think it’s more important to focus on being compassionate towards those who fear and dislike what they don’t understand.
Our society throws crazy shade at anyone whose body differs from the models featured in Western media…I always tell people (especially women) to stop sending negative energy into their bodies and thoughts. That negative energy is responsible for all body unhappiness.
The only person in control of your life experience is you. Find the space and love to believe in yourself if only for your own overall well-being.
