Stanley

I’m an author, yoga teacher,
entrepreneur, and advocate. 

It’s nice to meet you!

I am an internationally acclaimed leading voice in wellness, based in Durham, NC, highly sought after for my insights on 21st century yoga and intersectional identity.

I founded The Underbelly, a wellness brand whose offerings include on-demand streaming yoga classes taught by me (available by web, iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, & Amazon Fire) and an online shop.

New Book Coming Soon

My first book, Every Body Yoga, with 59,000 copies in print, taught us how to do yoga. Now, in Yoke, I’ll tell y’all why.

Yoke presents a series of deeply honest, funny, gritty, thoughtful, and largely autobiographical essays that explore the issues of race, self-love, capitalism, sex and sexuality, cannabis, and more.

The Only Way to Deal in This Dumpster Fire of a Year Is by Learning to Breathe Through It

January 1, 1970

IDK about you, but life these days feels like riding a surfboard during an earthquake in the seventh circle of hell. If you feel constantly overwhelmed, you are not alone. I am here with you.

Practicing breathwork is a political action.

Do I Have to Lose Weight to Start Yoga?

January 1, 1970

As a yoga teacher who’s been practicing for nearly a decade and teaching for half of that, this is a question I’ve been asked a lot.

My answer forever and always? Hell naw! There’s no such thing as being “too fat for yoga.” Yoga is for everybody, regardless of size. Contrary to what you might see Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Fusce congue, est sit amet tempor feugiat, sem elit tristique magna, sit amet semper urna augue sed felis. Fusce suscipit magna massa. Praesent in cursus sem. Nunc convallis felis quis ipsum placerat, vitae venenatis ex lobortis. In condimentum consectetur lectus sed pharetra. Maecenas a purus nec sapien dapibus auctor id non ex. Praesent vestibulum pretium suscipit. Nulla finibus molestie odio, sed suscipit nisi interdum eget. Nulla sodales porta vulputate. Pellentesque sed mattis nulla. Pellentesque varius nibh mi, ac viverra elit facilisis eget. Nullam congue imperdiet ligula ac placerat. Nullam ac urna vel dui finibus cursus quis sed metus. Nulla rhoncus elit eu aliquet rhoncus.

Short answer: No. Let me tell you why, and how to get started.
