Podcast Episode 164: Meet Coral Brown, A Yoga Teacher and Renowned Teacher Trainer, Who’s Coupling Mental Health, Psychology and the Chakras Into Some of the Most Powerful Student {and Teacher} Breakthroughs, I’ve Ever Seen

When your mother is a therapist, you view mental health in a very different way.  

After all, thanks to my mother, I not only experienced completely stigma free therapy, I was her guinea pig as EMDR and neuro-bio-feedback were considered as additions to her repertoire, the advanced copy reader of numerous books that she was considering for her clients, and, well, a constant mind to be explored {thanks Mom for not terrifying all my boyfriends}.  

But, psychology and fitness, outside of sports psychologists, isn’t something I saw being explored on a day to day basis, until I met Coral Brown
