Intentional Well-Being Podcast: Body Inclusivity
In this episode, I get to talk to Jessica Lin, a Taiwanese Chinese American living in Southern California who has spent the past 15 years in holistic health and advocating for decolonization in the yoga communities.
She speaks on how accessibility goes far beyond just language; it includes disabilities, income level, and includes attention to trauma.
Diane presents the idea that it is important to highlight voices other than our own. And as a member of this community, it will always be valuable for you and your students to “Stop, Listen, and Learn.”
Jessica Lin (she/her) is a queer, 2nd generation Taiwanese Chinese American with 15+ years’ experience in holistic health.
Her dedication to healing comes from her lifelong struggle with chronic illness and her experiences as a survivor of sexual assault and domestic abuse.
She is a certified yoga teacher and teaches with an emphasis on body inclusivity and decolonization. Her current studies also include Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine passed down through her family.
She has a BA in art from Scripps College and is the founder of SoCal Zine Fest (formerly Pomona Zine Fest). In her free time, Jessica enjoys hiking, foraging, and photographing cats in her neighborhood.
