What do you do when you've come home after a long day at work, your kids are screaming and all you want to do is hit the pillow? You can't remember the last time you had really satisfying intimacy with your partner because you're both too exhausted, and it's becoming a real problem. You're not the only one, and it's fixable. I'll be teaching you the secrets to lasting passion, electric chemistry and orgasmic bliss so that sex gives you energy rather than something else you have to get done. Sexual energy is life force energy: when you feel sexually satisfied then this ripples out to the rest of your life and energizes you. Using breathing, Tantric techniques and the sex education you never got at school, you'll leave the workshop wanting to jump into bed again.

Naomi sees these big emotions come up time and time again with the women that she works with. The demands of modern living do nothing to help, only exaggerate the sinister side effect of compar-anoia!

These simple “tapping” techniques are a effective, powerful tool that can be taken away with you to help you get through all those sticky moments in day to day life.

Learn how wearing your best colours and understanding your style personality, shape and scale can make the difference between clothing calamity and sartorial success! When you dress with your personal colours and style, your image is polished, you glow with confidence, and stand out from the crowd.
In this interactive talk, Pennie will give you food for thought from sources far and wide (from science to eastern philosophy), as to just what the hell the word 'soul' means and why it might even matter to you and your life. This is part of a wider personal and professional investigation into the multiple aspects of life that can give us meaning and purpose. Pennie will share practical experience and tips on accessing less 'tangible' aspects of the self to enrich general quality of life.

In this session Hannah blends the magic of hypnosis with a restorative yoga flow fueled by your intention. Begin by letting go of whatever no longer serves you through your breath and detoxing movement. Then build fire in your belly and open your heart to what you’d like to bring into your life before journalling your intention. Literally breathe life into the future you, and harmonise your thinking and your belief in your abilities through the power of hypnosis. Leave feeling beautifully balanced and restored. Namaste.

Grace is a writer and therefore is used to plumbing the depths of her experiences for content. But it was as a mother she realised how powerful sharing your deepest, darkest secrets with other women could be. Whether it’s the state of your fanny post-birth, the fact that you’re struggling a bit, or the story of your first post-baby spray tan when you squirted the beautician in the eye with breast milk (Just me?) - sharing your stories can be freeing, bonding and of course, out of the worst moments and spikiest taboos can come the funniest anecdotes. Laugh and let it go. It can forge fast friendships in moments, and equally can signal when people might NOT be your potential tribe. It can unite you with strangers, fast-track you to the kind of friendships you so need when going through the ups and downs of motherhood. It’s can show you that actually we share a lot of the same feelings and that whatever you’re feeling, you’re not alone. And it can make you laugh til you wee. Grace’s book MUM FACE is 295 pages of oversharing, and has opened up so many conversations she’s now a seasoned oversharer, leaving no stone unturned. Join Grace for a relaxed chat about her own experiences and yours if you fancy sharing, with lots of laughs and possibly TMI.
This pelvic health and awareness workshop is for all women. Our focus is to reconnect to our sacred pelvis and pelvic floor. We will chat about a little anatomy, discussing our feminine physiology and the importance of caring for our pelvis and pelvic floor. You will also learn to bring awareness to your pelvic floor. Getting to know where you have tension, lack of stability or lack of connection. Through practical exercises (that you can do anywhere) you will reconnect, strengthen or relax your pelvic floor muscles - both physical and emotional. We will visualise our sacred pelvic bowl in a guided meditation learning to reconnect and listen to our yoni wisdom and the power of our foundation, roots and creative sensual pelvis. Learning to understand our anatomy gives us the power to take responsibility.
How Naomi G went from breastfeeding and feeling totally overwhelmed with motherhood and life to standing up on stage and carving a name for herself in stand up comedy. With lots of laughs and swearing on the way!
We are not simply 'what we eat'! We are 'what we absorb'; 'what we believe' and 'what we live'. Nic is not a fan of dieting or counting calories. She's a fan of living a full, happy and balanced life. In this workshop, she will explain why our bodies respond differently as we get older and share some exciting tips as to how we can switch certain genes on and literally turn back the clock to a healthier body.
Knowledge of the cycles of life – the menstrual cycle, the lunar calendar and the seasons – is one of the most empowering gateways to self-understanding and compassion women have available to us. Meghan Field’s cyclical living workshop is an awareness portal into how these natural cycles influence how you show up in the world. When we honour our cyclical nature as women and recognise the natural changes that influence our moods, energy levels, and feelings about who we are, we can then plan our lives in sync with these cycles. We can embrace all of who we are and show up more compassionately and authentically in the world for ourselves and others. By doing so, we step fully into our power and own our feminine flow. This is a practical workshop, providing tools, resources and information you can immediately apply in your daily life.
Come and connect with your inner authentic voice and express your creative soul, through easy and enjoyable writing exercises. Our theme at RESTFEST is Self love. All abilities are warmly welcome. Please bring a pen and notebook.

What our fans love about uflourish & RESTFEST #busywomensdayoff
Thank you, Naomi, for having the vision, courage and willingness to organise #busymumsdayoff day retreat. It was amazing and I’m still doing everything I learnt whilst relaxing to improve my life and myself and in the spirit of Wild Motherhood creative writing... I’m just flowing with memories, hooping, zen doodling, relaxing massage, delicious food, hydration, inspiring quotes and books, cosy places, beanbags, comfort and fun, relaxing and chatting, learning who I am a little more, growing in my self-confidence daily because of my day off. Because of you, I’m a better mum, a better person and inspired by the teachers and mentors you introduced me to. And all the other lovely women that I met. It feels like the start of a a journey. I relax more. I take time for me and am still hooping – I’ve lost 2cm from my belly! You also made sure I could indulge my taste buds with plenty of dairy free options. I’ll be coming again – Every busy woman deserves the ultimate day off.

This event is set to be absolutely amazing. Naomi who is organising it has been a huge light and inspiration in my life since meeting her almost 6 years ago. Her passion for life and following your dreams is infectious and I always leave my time with her feeling inspired, educated and alive with ideas and goals that I just know are going to happen.
