The YOGI M.D. Podcast

The YOGI M.D. Podcast
The Yogi M.D. Podcast empowers the mature woman to make her health a priority in order to thrive in all the stages of her life. Defining health cannot be constrained by the simplistic formula of diet and exercise alone. That’s why we interview experts, to expand her definition of health to include physical, mental, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual well being. That’s why we talk to inspiring men and women who share the lessons they’ve embraced on their journeys to holistic health. That’s why we bring you “The Mindful Minute”, episodes with practical tips to make each day healthier than the last.
