She calls herself the "Fat Femme" yogi. And Jessamyn Stanley is proud to be challenging stereotypes of the typical lithe yoga body shape. Stanley attended her first yoga class back in 2011, after purchasing a Groupon offer. She was immediately hooked and continued to practice. Now, she's a fully certified yoga instructor, and has more than 55,000 Instagram followers. The 27 year old from North Carolina, told nymag she thought it was intimidating to many to see the perfect yoga body at the front of the class.

Check out the Fat Femme is rocking some poses below!
