Tasmanian women are approaching this summer with a new zest for life, thanks to Launceston’s wellbeing business BodyZen.

BodyZen relaunched late last month, and has already been helping women to be at peace with their bodies through foundation workshops, online coaching programs and forums.

More than 50 people attended the BodyZen launch at The Atrium Café on November 26 to hear directors Sara Redman and Susan Henshaw share their own personal stories and the elusive keys to finding peace and sustainable weight loss.

“BodyZen isolates the key to weight loss and body image issues that leads you to sense of being at peace with your body,” Sara explained about BodyZen’s revolutionary system.

“Unlike traditional approaches to weight loss, we take your focus off your body put it on the core issue. By working on mental and emotional weight loss first, the physical weight loss follows and takes care of itself.

“Our vision is for more and more women to get off the diet treadmill, achieve their best body and find a sense of peace within themselves. These women become role models and this has an exponential effect by spreading to other women in their lives,” she concluded.

Both Sara and Susan are inspired by the quote from Buddha: “If you light a lamp for someone, it will brighten your own path,” and feel this sums up BodyZen perfectly.

In launching the business Sara and Susan discussed the tools BodyZen uses, which include these free services:

• BodyZen Newsletter and Blog
• BodyZen Non Diet
• 30 Days to Self Respect
• BodyZen Forum
