Jennilyn Carson, Founder

JL-lucy-300-circleJennilyn has been a cycledork since she was a tween first intrigued by the magic of menstruation, but it wasn’t until several years ago, when she started researching, investigating and tracking her own cycle – before apps! – that she realized there’s so much more to know, and with that knowledge comes empowerment. She started as a period-positive space with an underlying mission to undo the taboo around menstruation. Jennilyn is also founder and Editor in Chief of, a website she built from the yoga mat up offering commentary on yoga news and culture with wit and wisdom. Offline she is co-founder of TASCbar, an affordable and creative co-working space in East Harlem. She is also a birth doula, a volunteer cat rescuer, and a proud partner of the Yoga and Body Image Coalition. Find her on Twitter @jenniyoga and at
