Entrepreneur and yoga instructor Jessamyn Stanley will share her thoughts on inclusive wellness approaches and intersectionality at Tripp Commons in Memorial Union on Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. as part of the Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) Committee’s free lecture lineup, the Wisconsin Union announced on Wednesday afternoon.
The event, titled “Yoga, Diversity, and Empowerment: A Journey with Jessamyn Stanley,” will feature a 60-minute lecture followed by a 30-minute audience Q&A.
Stanley, the co-founder of The Underbelly, a virtual yoga studio focused on creating authenticity and approachability within the yoga community, believes in transforming wellness from a universal idealized look to an approach that adapts to the unique needs of each person and body, according to a press release from WUD.
Her books, “Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear, Get On the Mat, Love Your Body.” and “Yoke: My Yoga of Self-Acceptance,” have reached global audiences and provide perspectives on a body-positive and inclusive approach to yoga, wellness and loving oneself.
No tickets are necessary for this event. Admission is free and open to the public.
