Mixing Ego, Business, & Yoga – Bad Yogi Blog


Jessamyn Stanley is our guest today!

Fun fact: this is the first episode I recorded as a MOM. That fact is totally irrelevant to today’s episode, but still a fun little side track. If you’re new around here, I just had a baby 6 weeks ago & his name is Theo… my husband ended up taking him out for a walk while I had this interview which is also the first time I do an official “work” thing since his birth. Time flies, I’m telling you…

Speaking of getting back to work, what an easy, warm welcome I had back with this interview with Jessamyn Stanley who is SO lovely I can’t even tell you… If you don’t know who she is, lemme give you some background. Jessamyn’s a yogi who breaks all the stereotypes, has built a life as an internationally recognized yoga teacher and award-winning Instagram star by combining a deep understanding for yoga with a willingness to share her personal struggles in a way that touches everyone who comes to know her.

She got dragged to a yoga class by her Aunt, hated it, then ended up revisiting & falling in love with it later on.

We talk about a whole range of things:
– A little about her yoga journey
– How we feel about our egos being yogis and businesswomen
– How she stays inspired to remain authentic on social media
– And yes, even that infamous Yoga Journal cover incident
