Mindbodygreen (MGB) was created by Jason Wachob, who developed the idea for the site after yoga saved his back and helped him avoid surgery. The site's goal is to provide people with world-class instructional video courses taught by the best wellness teachers around the world.
The name Mindbodygreen represents the mindset, physical activity, and nutrition that support a life of vitality and health.
Since its inception the company has grown to be one of the most popular content creators in the self help/growth niche, providing in depth resources on a variety of topics.
Mindbodygreen has 3 main offerings. The first is their website which offers articles and guides on issues that you may encounter on your healing journey. There you will find everything from recipes to skincare tips free of charge.
The next portion of their company is the video courses that they offer. They have amassed a library of video resources from experts in their respective fields.
The topics covered include:
- Personal growth
- And more
In addition to video instruction, each course includes notes, helpful worksheets, tips, recipes, discussion boards, and exercises to get going on your own. Each course has a "Discussions" section that allows you to ask the instructor questions and interact with others who are doing the course with you.
Some examples include:
Pete Evans —The 7-Day Paleo Plan
Ben Greenfield —The 7-Day Full-Body Reboot to get Strong, Fit & Lean
Terry Wahls —Food Fundamentals: Eating to Optimize your Physical & Mental Well-Being
To get a sense of what you can expect from a course, in Dr. Lipman's Master the Art of Detoxing: A 14-Day Plan to Feel Good Again course, you can access:
- 26 sessions in 6 modules
- Online streaming videos to watch as many times as you want
- Downloadable recipes, shopping lists, eating plans, and more
- Discussion boards to interact with Dr. Frank Lipman, Kerry Bajaj, and other students
The last segment of Mindbodygreen is their supplement shop, where they’ve formulated a variety of items that they believe to be vital to your healing efforts.
Finally they do also offer a Functional Nutrition Coaching course that is designed for those looking to break into the health and wellness field as professionals.

Online Customer Reviews/Complaints
While there are millions of people who visit the MGB website, there aren’t that many online reviews. Some bloggers found the courses very useful and accessible for people at all levels. One blogger who did a yoga course felt the course was just as effective for her as the in-person classes and convenient to access around her busy schedule.
Some health advocates did not like that MGB promoted Melinda Gates' use of vaccines to treat Ebola and other illnesses, particularly because they are promoting natural wellness approaches.
Some people complained that the company sent them too many promotional emails pushing paid products, and felt that they were being spammed.
Competitors and Alternatives
Even though most sites do not offer as many courses as MGB in one place, there are many online wellness courses people can take including LearnItLive, Naam Yoga®, and The Chopra Center.
