About the event

Melissa DeChellis's journey as a movement coach and athlete highlights the remarkable adaptability of the body and human spirit. Her approach is grounded in inclusivity, valuing the unique abilities of every individual. Born in Poland with a leg deformity, and utilizing an orthoprosthetic brace since childhood, Anna Klecha came to the United States for an elective amputation to restore her mobility. Since then Anna has transitioned her mindset from victim to survivor to victor. Today, Anna's advocacy is devoted to elevating the image and representation of persons with disabilities in Poland, and she serves as a consultant at the Accessibility Center of a consulting firm.

Join Melissa, the Founder of Adaptively Abled and lululemon Ambassador, this Wednesday as she hosts Anna Klecha, Ph.D. Together, they will engage in an inspiring community dialogue on body neutrality within the disability community. Immerse in this live podcast at lululemon Newbury, featuring Melissa DeChellis and Anna Klecha, powered by lululemon Newbury (NBX). Fuel for thought and connection will be provided by our local Newbury neighboring restaurants.
