Esoteric Women's Health Newsletter January 2019
Esoteric Women's Health Newsletter January 2019
Welcome to our first newsletter for 2019.
Typically at this time of year we make a list of things we would like to achieve in the coming year. And whilst setting goals and planning for the year is important, we can often get caught up in the 'what we need to do' without considering the 'how we do it'; and by this we mean the quality of energy in which we do something.
Many of us can get caught up in 'must get this job done as I said I was going to do it' and at the end of it, we can be left feeling depleted and often exhausted. What if we looked at the quality of energy of how we do things and the effect that has on our bodies?
This newsletter is dedicated to this – an invitation to explore the quality in which we live our lives.
Asking us what if we made it about quality first, the quality we are in when we do things, the quality we would like to live – are we pushing ourselves, are we rough and hard or do we move with a gentleness and grace which is more akin to our natural way of being?
Please also save the date for the upcoming Women in Livingness Workshop in Brisbane on Sunday 17 February 2019 – tickets will be available on our website.
Please enjoy our newsletter and have an amazing New Year,
Esoteric Women's Health

Self-Care: The quality in which we move
As young children we move in a very natural, fluid and joyful way. We live from one moment to the next, living in the present moment. We are not preoccupied by thoughts throughout the day.
These qualities, and our ability to move in this way, never leave us. Although as adults we rarely move in this quality. But we can re-ignite and change our movements in any moment if we so choose.
"Simply becoming aware of how we walk, the way we get in and out of our car, walk up the stairs or close doors. Are we slamming, jarring or rough, or do we move gently with a feeling of grace?"
Women in Livingness Workshop 17th February 2019
We are delighted to announce our next Women in Livingness workshop, to be held on Sunday 17 February 2019 in Brisbane, Australia.
The workshop will be presented by Esoteric Women's Health founder Natalie Benhayon, with the theme "From Empowerment to Power".
Women in Livingness workshops are an open forum that offer the space to explore the current issues that are impacting women's health and well-being, and to re-establish a way of living that supports the development of true well-being.
Visit our website for more details.
WELL-BEING FOR WOMEN – REGULAR PRESENTATIONS
Well-being for Women are regular presentations held throughout the world that can support us to restore a level of vitality, well-being and zest for life that many of us struggle to feel amidst the demands, pressures and expectations of daily life.
"I keep coming back because of the connection to the women who attend, their wisdom and care and also the way that I feel post workshop or event. I feel calmer, more in control of my life and its challenges and also more connected to myself." ~ Megan, 35
In Rhythm with Natalie Benhayon
“Rhythm is our relationship with the quality of how we feel within ourselves each and every day, and, a true rhythm is when the quality that governs the rhythm comes from the essence of who we really are. Getting to know your quality, and your essence, each day, is key to establishing a rhythm that is in true harmony to all that you do in your life.”
Quality of movement = Quality of life
"By simply bringing attention to the quality we are moving in, the flow of energy through the body becomes more harmonious."
Developing a real and honest relationship with my husband
Sharon shares how becoming more honest and aware with herself and how she was living her life, changed the quality of her relationship with her husband of 38 years.
Farewell dear coffee

Women in Livingness Magazine
The Women in Livingness magazine is a FREE online magazine compiled and styled by over 100 volunteering women, residing in 9 different countries, representing a diverse cross-section of society. They are all leaders in their professional fields, and offer expertise, and life experience on subjects that truly matter to women.
The unique commitment of our team is – no Photoshop allowed. Our photographers work to capture the natural beauty, spark, and essence of women in their photography – we want women to be inspired by what they see and not judged for not measuring up to unrealistic body shapes and features.
Real women talking about the things that truly matter – enjoy.
"We need to redefine what is true and normal health and well-being; vitality, joy, having a spark for life, accepting imperfections and not criticising them, can be our everyday reality."
FREE and online in both English and German
You can also visit our website for more reading and be inspired by the many articles and blogs written by real women all over the world.
Esoteric Yoga offers the opportunity to truly stop, and come back to you and the quality of energy in your body. Each class helps us to realise that we can choose to bring a harmonious quality into our everyday movements, and that the quality we bring to our movements determines how we feel and the level of well-being we experience.
Classes can be done online at a time that suits you, also offered are group classes, private sessions, and classes for the workplace.
GENTLE BREATH MEDITATION
Are you sensitive to being affected by what is going on around you? Do you feel anxiety or agitation in your body? The Gentle Breath Meditation is a simple and very powerful technique to support you.
This Gentle Breath Meditation begins with dropping your head toward your heart, focusing and allowing the senses to recognise that you are one with your body through the gentle in-breath, then developing expansiveness and gentleness in your body with the out-breath.
Listen to a recording of the Gentle Breath Meditation.
