Full Bio

Jessamyn Stanley is an internationally acclaimed voice in wellness, highly sought after for her insights on 21st-century yoga and intersectional identity.

As a successful entrepreneur, Jessamyn is the founder of The Underbelly, a streaming wellness app with digital yoga classes available by web, iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, & Amazon Fire. Jessamyn launched The Underbelly to help individuals tune in with themselves and live authentically. The platform is a home for wellness enthusiasts and the “wellness-curious” who may feel displaced, discouraged, or overlooked due to not seeing themselves reflected in the health and fitness community. The brand has quickly gained notoriety for its inclusive approach towards physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Jessamyn’s first book, ‘Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear. Get On the Mat. Love Your Body’, has inspired global audiences to discover the power of yoga and set forth on a path for personal development. Her highly anticipated second book, ‘YOKE: My Yoga of Self Acceptance’  was released on June 22nd, 2021. In a series of deeply honest, funny, gritty, thoughtful, and largely autobiographical essays, Yoke explores issues of self-love, body-positivity, race, sex and sexuality, cannabis, and more, all through the lens of an authentic yoga practice.

A regular contributor to SELF magazine, Jesamyn has been featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine (UK), and covered in the New York TimesVogueGlamourSports Illustrated among many other domestic and international media outlets.

Jessamyn is an award-winning social advocate. She is well-versed on a variety of cultural issues including the modern Black experience, LGBTQA+ representation, and equity in the health industry amongst others. She is the Co-Founder of We Go High NC, a southern Cannabis Justice organization working to increase cannabis access in prohibition states like hers, and highlight the natural connection between cannabis consumption and prison abolition. The organization operates on a simple truth: No One Should Be In Jail For Weed.

Jessamyn also hosts a podcast by Tenderfire Media titled, Dear Jessamyn. Named by Harper’s Bazaar as one of the best sex podcasts to listen to, the show offers fresh perspectives on relationships, sex, and lifestyles for anyone living and loving outside the box. Episodes are based around questions from Jessamyn’s engaged online community, she joins her co-host and girlfriend, ashe phoenix, to dissect her DMs and bring their insights and experiences to some of life’s deeper queeries and quandaries.
