Podcast Episode 6 - Fierce Kindness. Be a Positive Force for Change.

For our 6th episode, I had the pleasure to sit down with Melanie Salvatore-August. Mel is a yoga teacher, teacher trainer, author and activist. We’ve met a few years back when I did my 300h, as she was part of the cohort of teacher. I felt a strong connection to her teachings so I decided to pick up her books. Today, we’re meeting to talk about her second book, Fierce Kindness, Be a Positive Force for Change.
