@Mynameisjessamyn visited us to talk about body positive yoga and her new book: Every Body Yoga. “My advocacy comes from the fact that as a fat body, black queer person I am taught to be very uncomfortable with my body and to apologize for it and to explain myself, Jessamyn says. She took her inspiring, positive message and designed a book that can be used by a complete novice. “Get into your body,” she says. You have a chance to meet her June 10 at the Richmond Public Library, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Click the link in our bio for her full interview with @virginiathismorning
