To say Jessamyn Stanley is inspiring would be an understatement! Her truth gave the girls SO MUCH PAUSE. This episode is a shining example of why Krista and Lindsey love interviewing people for Almost 30. They were shaken, shifted, and felt inspired to take a closer look at how they are living. Jessamyn is a yoga teacher, body positivity advocate, and the author of Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear, Get On the Mat, Love Your Body.
Linds, Krista, and Jessamyn sit down for an incredible conversation about how she first got into yoga (which she hated at the time), social media, community, self-esteem + self-worth, and why she believes that yoga can save the world.
