Inspiring Plus-Sized Yogi is Changing the Face of Fitness on Instagram

Plenty of fitness gurus share their workout regimen on Instagram, but 27-year-old Jessamyn Stanley might be the most inspiring of them all. This plus-sized yogi is showing the world that she's just as capable as other yoga enthusiasts by sharing images of her incredible feats of strength and flexibility.

Through her Instagram account, Stanley elicits a powerful amount of confidence, promoting messages of body positivity and providing an encouraging supply of healthy habits. Her body may not fit the standards we're used to for a yogi, but she is changing the face of yoga with her determination and impressive display of skills. It's really no wonder that Stanley has gained over 65k followers on Instagram. To think, this journey all began with the simple purchase of a Groupon for a local Bikram studio.
