Description

A Conversation with Jessamyn Stanley Every Body Yoga
Detroit Public Library - Main Library

Jessamyn Stanley is a yogi who breaks all the stereotypes. The self-professed "fat femme's" trademark confrontational approach to tackling big topics-fat shaming, body image and the media, the tyranny of unattainable beauty standards -has garnered her a fanatic following, national media attention, and acclaim as an internationally celebrated yoga instructor whose fans flock to her sold-out classes.

In her debut book, EVERY BODY YOGA: Let Go of Fear, Get on the Mat, Love Your Body, Stanley offers an unprecedented new guide to yoga for anyone whose aspirations have been tempered by insecurity
.
"I wrote this book for every fat person, every old person, and every
exceptionally short person. I wrote it for every person who has called themselves ugly and every person who can't accept their beauty. I wrote it for every person who is self -conscious about their body," Stanley writes.

This event is free and open to the public.
