Empowering + Inspirational!

As a relative newbie to the world of Ayurveda, I have so appreciated the nourishing conversations and valuable insights shared on this show. Colette is a warm and sincere teacher, and I can tell the guests she brings on are people she is genuinely excited to share with her listeners. No matter the topic, you're sure to gain something from every episode!
