DT 058: Agency for Change with Melanie Klein

Melanie C. Klein is a thought leader and influencer in the areas of body confidence, authentic empowerment, and visibility. She is also a successful writer, empowerment coach, speaker, and professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies. She has published several books on yoga and body image and how this intersects with social justice. She co-founded the Yoga and Body Image Coalition in 2014 and is the co-founder of The Joy Revolution with her partner, Marc Cordon.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Melanie on:

  • Why Melanie is shying away from the word yoga at this stage of her work and practice
  • The breakthrough Melanie experienced in an “advanced” class that allowed her to process buried emotional exhaustion
  • The dangers of social media and a system that lends credibility through the currency of likes and followers
  • Recognizing the personal agency to effect individual transformation and institutional change
