Surprise! Producer Steve fills in for Aaron who missed this week's episode with Melanie Klein. A coach, thought leader, author, and influencer in the areas of body confidence, authentic empowerment, and visibility, Melanie is shaking the foundation of yoga in the Western world by investigating power and privilege dynamics, body image, media literacy, and much, much more. Melanie is co-founder of both the Yoga and Body Image Coalition and The Joy Revolution, a leadership program that challenges us to consider how we can live with joy while participating in social justice and advocacy work. Without Aaron, we don't dive too far into academics or philosophy, but we do enjoy some deep conversation around showing up authentically to further both our individual liberation and collective liberation. As Melanie reminds, we're all in this together, folks.
