Femme Friday – Jessamyn Stanley

Author, Yoga Teacher, Entrepreneur, Advocate, and Queer Femme, Jessamyn Stanley speaks about yoga as being so much more than figuring out how to go all pretzelly. “What yoga can offer us is the structure, the clarity, the patience, and the openness to acceptance. . . .” she says in an interview in The Advocate (July/August 2021 p. 28). “Through that, we can heal tremendous pain in our society.”

Take a look at Jessamyn’s website where you can find information about her teaching, her two books, Every Body Yoga and Yoke: My Yoga of Self-Acceptance, her classes, events, podcasts, and advocacy for cannabis justice.

Deep gratitude to Jessamyn for her queer femme healing energy and how generously she shares her love and her wisdom.  

Every Friday, I showcase a queer femme goddess. I want to feature you! Write to me at thetotalfemme@gmail.com and let me shine a spotlight on your beautiful, unique, femme story! If you’ve written a femme story or poem or song, oh, please let me post it!

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday, and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”) And…as I go through graduate school and life life life, I will post as I am able, Mabel.
