How does the yoga community replicate the sexism & power imbalances of the dominant culture? What is lost, and gained, as the practice becomes increasingly mainstreamed? In this episode of the 21st Century Yoga Guru Expert Series, contributors Melanie Klein and Frank Jude Boccio discuss these pertinent questions – and many others– with co-editor Roseanne Harvey.
 
Melanie Klein is a writer, speaker, and professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies at Santa Monica College. Melanie attributes feminism and yoga as the two primary influences in her work, and is committed to consciousness-raising, promoting media literacy, healing distorted body images and cultivating healthy body relationships. She is the founder of the blog FeministFatale.
 
Poep Sa Frank Jude Boccio is a certified yoga teacher, interfaith minister, and Zen Buddhist Dharma teacher. His book, Mindfulness Yoga: The Awakened Union of Breath, Body, and Mind is the first to apply the Buddha’s mindfulness meditation teachings to yogasana practice. Besides his writing appearing in Tricycle, Shambhala Sun, Namaskar and Yoga Journal, he maintains two blogs: Mindfulness Yoga and Zen Naturalism.
 
Roseanne Harvey is a writer, editor, and yoga teacher in Montreal.  She is the former editor of Ascent magazine, and the founder of It’s All Yoga, Baby a blog known for questioning, provoking thought and shining a critical light on yoga culture. She is co-director of Yoga Festival Montreal and a passionate community organizer.
