Body Positive Yoga with Jessamyn Stanley

Discussion: 6:00pm
Yoga Session: 7:30pm
Jessamyn Stanley is a yoga teacher, body positivity advocate, and writer based in Durham, North Carolina. Jessamyn will lead a conversation about body image from an intersectional perspective that includes empowerment and insight, with particular emphasis on the women of color and queer folks. During this conversation, we hope students will recognize and begin to dismantle harmful messages they’ve internalized, and develop a deep(er) sense of self-love.
Following dinner, Jessamyn will lead a body positive yoga session that will help students connect to their bodies, find joy in movement, and practice embodying the positive messages from her discussion. We will provide mats, or students can bring their own.
