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.
When not manifesting or in a yoga flow state, I can be found staring at the sky or soaking in North Carolina’s best rivers and bathtubs. I collect vintage furniture and am the surrogate mother of several very charismatic cats, plants and the cutest mini chihuahua you’ve ever seen.
My 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 self-acceptance. My second book, ‘YOKE: My Yoga of Self-Acceptance’ is coming Spring 2021.
I’m a regular contributor for SELF Magazine and is consistently featured in many media outlets, including The New York Times, CNN, Good Morning America, Vogue, InStyle, BET, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Allure, Shape, Out Magazine, and Forbes to name a few.
I also co-hosts a podcast by Tender Fire Media titled Dear Jessamyn. Named one of the best sex podcasts to listen to by Harper’s Bazaar, the show offers fresh perspectives on relationships, sex, and lifestyles for anyone living and loving outside the box.
I’m the Co-Founder of We Go High NC, a southern Cannabis Justice organization working to increase cannabis access in prohibition states like mine, 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.
