Meet Barbara Badolati

Barbara Badolati is a wellness expert, expressive movement devotee, and life coach extraordinaire.

Being the CEO (Chief Everything Officer) of my own business for thirty + years, I learned all facets of business … because I had to! My education was in Exercise Physiology and Health Education. I received certifications in Wellness & Lifestyle Coaching, Mind-Body movement modalities and Yoga, yet NONE of these programs provided me with any curriculum on how to transform my expensive trainings and education into an abundant livelihood.

Barbara's Journey

In the beginning, I worked really hard with little return. I was stressed because not enough money was coming in to pay my business expenses or MYSELF. I had a dream and a love for the Wellness and Coaching industry, but didn’t always have clear direction on how to make this passion sustaining much less thriving! I didn’t understand my value and how to charge accordingly. I didn’t know how to work smarter or how to be balanced personally and professionally. I knew this was common in most start-ups, yet in the wellness/health coaching/yoga field, it is especially important to “walk our talk”.
Throughout my thirty years of being an entrepreneur, I have learned everything from marketing and negotiating skills to branding and business savvy. I have built a library of resources, insights and knowledge. These decades of experience allows me to guide and support others, so that they too, can create a successful and sustaining business.

I believe you can make your business (and life) more effective, profitable and blissful. Besides coaching individuals in designing their blissful life, I also provide Mentoring and Coaching for Health Coaches, Mind-Body and and Yoga professionals who want to master business skills, generate sustaining revenue, increase marketing effectiveness and transform personal blocks.

Meet Barbara


After years of choosing an unhealthy lifestyle, coupled with an imbalance of mindless, physical, and emotional states, I found myself suffering in relationships, work, and everyday functions. With the realization that I had the power to alleviate much of the pain in my life, I made the choice to make a change. I began to exercise, learn about nutrition, manage my stress, and quit smoking. But that wasn’t the whole picture. While my physical self was becoming healthier, I still hit rock bottom from a breakdown of burnout, perfectionism, and exhaustion.

It wasn’t until I addressed all the aspects of myself — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually — that I transformed my life into one of vibrant healthy and wholistic well-being. This journey is a long one, full of twists and turns as in many of our lives, but no matter where you are on the path, I believe it is your birth-right to live in good health and to celebrate all aspects of WHO YOU ARE.


As a devoted student and teacher of wholistic health and wellness, I have developed a variety of effective programs throughout North America for over twenty years. I founded Be Alive & Well in 1987, as well as starting two yoga studios. I am a sought-after speaker, licensed Wellness-Life Coach, and Nutritional Counselor.

With a B.S. in Health Education and emphasis on exercise physiology, I have also earned advanced certification in Yoga, Wholistic Nutrition, Team Sanoviv Medical Institute, Fitness Training from the American Council on Exercise, Cooper Clinic for Aerobics Research, and Conscious Movement. In the realm of emotional health, I have completed the Louise Hay Heart Inspired and Advanced Landmark Education Intensives, and much more.

If you want help awakening your sassy, soulful self…I’m your woman.
