About Brenda and Beautiful Life:
Combining my own personal experience and those of my clients, I realise that we as women need to learn how to tap into our inner power and beauty in order for us to truly value and love ourselves as unique individuals. This inspired me to start a home-based beauty studio and Image Coaching business to help ladies to discover themselves and find the courage to reveal their tremendous potential to others.
I am extremely passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge with others in the hope that I can inspire all South African women to rise up using their gentle feminine POWER, which in turn enables not only themselves but also others around them, to live a life of purpose.

With her vast experience Di saw an opportunity to create a fine fragrance produced in SA, but with the essential oils coming from Grasse in France, home to all the world’s greatest perfumes!! At the end of last year, after 2 years of research and hard work, Di and her team created DIMANZI EAU DE PARFUM ( di for her name and manzi the Zulu word for water) embracing the same quality and standards of leading international brands, but at more competitive prices!!... the aim was to create a fragrance which embodies real French Chic and aligning it with our enchanting African Spirit!!.. DIMANZI EAU DE PARFUM is for that woman who is energetic and spirited, but also classy and elegant!!....To quote the iconic COCO CHANEL ... "Always keep your HEELS and your standards HIGH"!

More about Faheema and her business:
All this began with getting retrenched. Some might think that this was the worst thing that could ever happen to a couple, and at the same time! We however, had to ask ourselves if we wanted to continue to “be a number” in a company or if we wanted something more. We decided it was time to make a change and not just to make a living, but also to do something that would make a difference in peoples' lives and add value.
Having had numerous illnesses in the family, we (a husband and wife team) stumbled, through a friend, colleague and mentor, onto Alkaline ionized water. We were told of the health benefits of drinking the “Right” water and just by drinking water, one could restore their health. Only after having felt the benefits of drinking the right water, Restore Health Water (RestoreH20) was founded to try and assist people to attain a better quality of life.
Returning to my home in South Africa as a Sophrology Practitioner, being a Mum of 3 children (son-17yrs & twin girls 10yrs of age), I felt blessed with a “gift”. A special gift to share with people of South Africa.
As the first Sophrologist in Johannesburg, my ultimate passion is to create an awareness, help, support, share my knowledge and experiences of this phenomenal wellness technique, with people. My role is to coach and guide individuals or groups of people.
About Ishana and her business:
Having worked in the Corporate world for over 18 years, I resigned as a Project Manager from a leading local financial institution, to relocate to Switzerland with my family for a few years. With my husband taking up a leadership assignment in Europe, this provided our family an opportunity to relocate to Switzerland and experience another country, another culture. During my time in Geneva, I discovered Sophrology, and was fascinated by its history, and widespread adoption in Switzerland, France, Spain and the UK over the last 55 years.
What is Sophrology?
Sophrology is a wellbeing technique that comprises of various breathing techniques, simple and effective exercises, visualizations, meditation/mindfulness and many additional techniques added to it. It is a structured, highly effective holistic program that works the mind, body and spirit simultaneously. It Harmonizes/Activates/Stimulates/Rejuvenates all cells of the body, organs, glands, systems, bones, muscles & skin. Sophrology is widely used for Maternity, Corporate, Sport, Education, Rehab Centre’s, Specific Clinics (e.g. Trauma, Cancer, HIV) and Hospitals. It is fun, simple, pleasurable and empowers individuals to take control of their own body, mind and wellbeing.
Some benefits of Sophrology are: helps you to efficiently manage/cope with stress, tension, anxiety, burnout & depression; improves self-confidence, innovation, sleep, focus/concentration; boosts energy levels; helps remove “fears”; to connect/appreciate your body; discover your inner capabilities/strengths/goals, leading you towards successful achievements. It therefore improves the quality of life, to ensure “Lifestyle Sustainability”. This results from a positive “holistic transformation” of the body, mind and spirit.
