My weekly go-to yoga podcast

“When I listen to Mado speak with her guests, it feels like I am listening to two friends having a deep, interesting talk about yoga. I always walk away with a gem of information that gets me excited to get back on my mat and teach and practice.”

A must-listen

“Mado dives deep and goes broad. The teacher topics she covers are wide-ranging yet she still manages to share so much about her own practice. She is honest and doesn’t always wrap each episode up with a neat bow—she challenges us to look within and make our own decisions. Thank you for a valuable resource!”
