    If you’ve seen her pictures on your social media feed, you know that JESSAMYN STANLEY is not ashamed of her full figure. As a feminist, body-positive activist and yoga instructor, she encourages everyone–regardless of size, color, gender, and sexual orientation– to get on a yoga mat. In this hour, Marty talks with Stanley about her new book Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear, Get on the Mat, Love Your Body and her body-positive movement.
