In celebration of Black History Month, we’ll be highlighting a diverse range of books – poetry, novels, memoirs and more – all written by Black American authors. Each of these works moved, engaged, delighted, enraged, and excited Island Free Library readers’ this past year, and we’ll be featuring one title every day through the month of February.
Today’s work is Jessamyn Stanley’s Every Body Yoga, a guide to yoga for all – all sizes, knowledge levels, body shapes, and confidence levels! Every Body Yoga covers 50 basic yoga poses, including color pictures demonstrating how the pose might look when practiced. Stanley’s work reminds us that every body is a good body, and yoga is for every body!
Jessamyn Stanley is an author, yoga teacher, the founder of wellness brand The Underbelly, and a cannabis justice activist. Stanley current lives and practices in Durham, North Carolina, but you can stream her yoga classes online anywhere in the world at
