Episode #1 - Tiffany Soi

In the first episode of Mind: Unlocked's new podcast, where we discuss practical mental well-being with leading thinkers and experts, we chat with Tiffany Soi.

Tiffany has been described as a modern Renaissance woman: she is a TV & Media presenter, yoga & wellbeing coach, and athlete, who somewhere along the way also picked up a first class astrophysics degree! Blending grit & grace into everything she does, Tiffany is a respected rock climbing athlete, the creator of the ClimbFlow Fit-Yoga Movement, and has hosted two original wellness shows for NBC.
