Y'all, @workmanpub, @jadeyogamats, & I have teamed up for a preorder sweepstakes celebrating my new book, "Every Body Yoga: Let Go Of Fear, Get On The Mat, Love Your Body"! The story of my personal yoga practice is much more complex than what could possibly be shown in a few instagram photos. In "Every Body Yoga", I'm finally able to give a full and clear answer to everyone who asks 'Hey Jessamyn, How Do I Start Practicing Yoga?' Click the link in my profile to check out the book + a chance to win: 1 . Coffee or a meal date with me, @mynameisjessamyn/@jessamynstanley 2. A signed copy of #EveryBodyYoga 3. A 68" mat and large cork block from @Jadeyogamats Throwback to that time @yogicphotos convinced me to practice my #handstand game in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge while wearing @k.deer leggings. SPEAKING OF WHICH, thanks to everyone who entered the @k.deer gift card giveaway! I went through and read all of your answers to the question "what pose kicks your ass?" and I was inspired to the brink of tears by how many of you are able to be completely fucking honest with yourselves about the reality of your personal practices. I could ramble forever on this topic but in short- thank you for being vulnerable with me. If you've ever feared beginning a yoga practice, do yourself a favor and scroll down a few entries to the giveaway post- there is some genuine human development going on in y'all's practices, and you can take comfort in knowing that everyone (yes, everyone) is challenged by asana practice. Anyway, YOU GET A CARD: $50 gift cards- Marie-Heฬleฬ€ne Dugal (Facebook) & @soulfulshania (instagram) $500 gift card- @retroengineer Leggings- @k.deer Photo by @yogicphotos
