A Balanced Life: Sara DiVello

As a verb, balance is defined as: “to keep or put (something) in a steady position so that it does not fall”. As a noun, balance is defined as: “an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady.” When it comes to my new series “A Balanced Life” I have chosen a few lovely ladies to feature that I believe embody what it means to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle. These women inspire me to keep buying organically (even if it is more expensive and some people just don’t get it), to keep working out (even if it is the first time in my life I am getting fit in a healthy way) and to keep up the positive attitude and energy.

A highly sought after yoga teacher, an Athleta Ambassador and a best-selling author (Where the OM am I?), Sara DiVello is the epitome of a balanced life. Appearing in multiple publications and tv networks (CBS and the Huffington Post Live, as well as in Forbes, The New York Times, ABC, CNBC, The Washington Post), and contributing articles to health minded websites (The Good Life Magazine, MindBodyGreen), Sara DiVello is what I consider a health and wellness guru. She will also be at this year’s Day of WELLness! Grab your tickets before they sell out!

Jennifer Hanway is a Holistic Nutritionist , Level 2 Bio Signature Modulation Practitioner and Certified Personal Trainer…now say that three times fast. She has 11 years of experience as a personal trainer and holistic nutrionist and has worked with the British Royal Family (…yes, you read that right) and a plethora of A-list celebrities. A-list celebs and princes aside, Jennifer is inspiring because she has basically dedicated her every day to helping others live their best lives from the inside out. I’m also excited to see her speak at this year’s Day of WELLness (enter code TSSB for $$$ off)!

My next Balanced babe, Jessica Diaz is inspiring to me in a different way. Yes, she is active and eats well; yes, she juggles being a barre instructor, mother of two and personal trainer, but it’s the why she started it all that inspires me. In 2013, Jessica suffered a stroke (putting to bed the thought that only old people experience this issue) and from then on her life changed. I won’t give away all the characteristics that make Jessica amazing, I’ll let her tell you herself.

Leading up to the event I wanted to bring you Balanced Life interviews with a few of the lovely speakers. My first interview is with the CEO of Thirst Juice Co., Heather Stevenson! Heather is a life long vegetarian and makes it her goal to bring healthy, plant-based, foods to the masses. An avid marathon runner, obstacle course champion and adventure seeker (climbed Mt.
