Waylon talks with Alex Hayden Hernandez about diversity in the yoga community, losing weight out of self-love, keeping it off, bullying in schools, food justice and getting Sasy.
Elephant is psyched to be working in partnership with Google+ on our new live video series, which features three live videos a week (that can be watched later, too).
Alex Hayden Hernandez is an online health coach, yoga instructor and writer. Her focus on health comes from a self journey of losing 50 pounds and transforming her own life. Her coaching and involvement in health comes with a social justice twist, where she focuses on how the media, social structure and stereotypes negatively impact the overall health of the country. Her methods explore how the mind, happiness and lifestyle affect health. Follow her on Twitter & Instagram or visit her website.
Alex is also the co-founder of Socially Aware Sisterhood of Youth, a non-profit educating young girls on social awareness, self-esteem, social justice, stereotypes in media, social patterns and behaviors, justice, equality, prejudice, out-sourcing, Civil Rights Movement, women’s history, American History, black history and latino/a history.
