This is the first podcast we’ve ever recorded on a school bus, which felt appropriate given it was a conversation with the Nicole Cardoza, the founder of Yoga Foster, which is focused on making yoga in schools elementary. Nicole is a disruptor, a creator, and a connector who is constantly moving the line forward of what’s possible in wellness. She recently launched Reclamation Ventures, an impact fund dedicated to investing in underestimated entrepreneurs closing the wellness gap, and is innovating towards a more accessible wellness for everyone.

"Some of the big work is redefining your relationship with yourself. What are you willing to take, what are you willing to let go of, what boundaries are you willing to give yourself?" @nicolecardoza on #CTZN Podcast @ctznwell @kellyyoga

More about this episode:

Nicole Cardoza is shaking things up in the wellness world. And we dig deep in the latest episode of CTZN Podcast. We tackle the wellness gap that separates who gets to be well and who doesn’t, we acknowledge how white supremacy is playing out in wellness, we confront the harm of corporations and institutions that continue to put profits over people. And we reckon with our own complicity and responsibility in participating in a system and culture that upholds inequity and exclusion and what we need to do about it.

We’re in a really messy moment in the world—navigating big entrenched systems that are set up to keep some people well and some people out. But as Nicole reminds us, even as things fall apart, new ideas and innovations are emerging that are redefining wellness and what’s possible when we expose the myth of a wellness that is rooted in capitalism and white supremacy and invest in people and programs that take care of everyone.
