Jessamyn Stanley has stretched herself into a dope opportunity! In an effort to rid barriers, U by Kotex has launched U by Kotex FITNESS and is partnering with Plus Size Yogi powerhouse and body positivity advocate, Jessamyn Stanley in a commercial for the products! Yes!
This announcement shines on the heels of her fabulous book launch for Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear, Get On the Mat, Love Your Body, which encourages the flexibility to tackle all physical and emotional barriers. Basically, the loveable Stanley wants to appeal to all shapes, sizes, and experience levels to introduce the weary and hesitant to the wonderful world of yoga.
“We have to get rid of that stigma of not being able to talk about totally normal parts of our bodies… I talk to my students about having your period and practicing yoga quite frequently. There is strength in these things we’ve been taught to be embarrassed about.” Jessamyn Stanley
