Jessamyn is the shiiiiiizzzz.  She has inspired so many people to practice yoga, who may not have ever considered it.  Jessamyn is gay and African American, but she will tell you that she is black and queer.  We talk about words, and the extra weight people are giving them nowadays.  I wouldn’t use the word queer, because I am straight, but I would say black and gay.  Those are the words that are normal to me, and they have never been a problem.  People need to chill out.  Words aren’t the problem, people are.  Anyway, Jessamyn is one of the coolest people I’ve ever had the good fortune to speak with.  She already has a book out, “Every Body Yoga”, as well as her new app: Underbelly Yoga.  We got to speak about a lot of interesting things, including what she said to her father when he agreed to put her through yoga training.  You will want to hear what she said; it made my day and had me laughing for a minute after.  Do me a favor…save me the show note writing time and just listen to this interview.  Everything you need to hear is there.  Thank you!  Oh, please subscribe, rate and review~!
