086: Ali Levine — Taking Risks + Breaking Out of Your Comfort Zone 1920 1080 Chase Jennings

Today I’m excited to feature a guest who is a known risk-taker and prides herself on living by her own terms. Ali Levine.

Celebrity stylist and motherhood/fashion/lifestyle expert Ali Levine believes that no matter where you roam, from the laundry room to the red carpet, authenticity is your superpower and “confidence is your best accessory.” Raised in the high-velocity fashion culture of New York City, a natural gift for style led Levine to opportunities working with international designers like Coach, Talbots, and the opening of New York’s flagship Target location. A transition to television/film took her to Hollywood, where she founded the Ali Levine Design headquarters, quickly establishing herself as LA’s “it” girl of celebrity styling with a star-studded portfolio that includes top names like Jesse McCartney, Arianny Celeste, Holly Robinson Peete, Joey King, Gretchen Rossi, Lisa Vanderpump and more. She rose to reality stardom with her Bravo show Stipped, which had exposed couple’s relationships wilee stripping them of everything they own – clothing, furniture, money, coveted possessions, to uncover what truly matters most.

After the arrival of her first child, daughter Amelia Rei, Levine wholeheartedly embraced the role of mompreneur/mommy influencer. She is now a mama of two and shares her real raw truth of motherhood. She is a sought-after motherhood style/lifestyle expert covered by Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, and LA Times, with design ideas featured on national network television and in print/online media outlets such as Real Simple, PopSugar, and FabFitFun. She is also one of Yahoo’s “Top Influencers to Watch and Follow in 2020.” The Ali Levine blog – which shares the unfiltered moment-to-moment evolution that is #MomLife, along with everyday style inspiration – earned a spot among the top 100 personal stylist blogs and has been named one of the top 40 LA fashion blogs. On the “Everything with Ali Levine” podcast, the New York hotshot-turned-Hollywood style maven delivers a real, raw look at her own motherhood journey amid the treasures she’s uncovered in the universal search for authenticity, spiritual wholeness, and happiness.

Derived from the Sanskrit word “yuji,” meaning yoke or union, yoga is an ancient practice that brings together mind and body and spirit.

It incorporates breathing exercises, meditation and poses designed to encourage relaxation and reduce stress.

Practicing yoga is said to come with many benefits for both mental and physical health from reducing stress, inflammation and improves breathing, sleep, happiness, strength, flexibility, and mood.
