“Female sexual pleasure, is not just about sexuality, or just about pleasure. It serves, also, as a medium of female self knowledge and hopefulness: female creativity and courage: female focus and initiative: female bliss and transcendence: and as a medium of sensibility that feels very much like freedom. To understand the vagina properly is to realise that it is not only coextensive with the female brain, but is also, essentially, part of the female soul.”
Naomi Wolf, Vagina

- Identify and release limiting beliefs around sex
- Accept and celebrate your body
- Learn what turns you on and know how to ask for it
- Learn the art of sexual self-care
- Improve your relationships
- Bring more pleasure into your life
Outline of the Programme
DAY 1: On the first evening, we will create a safe place for the weekend’s activities and you will create the vision of your Sexual Woman.
DAY 2: On the second day, we will work on releasing body and vagina shame and fears through exercises, intimate sharing and coaching. We will create a space to reshape our concept of feminine self-worth. The exercises will be transformational; this will be a safe place to confront your fears.
DAY 3: On the third day, we will work on owning your desire and embracing what is possible for your Sexual Woman through exploring boundaries, desire and fantasy. We will have a relationship and intimacy coach lead us through an exploration of sexual energy and the female orgasm. We will end the workshop with a commitment to honouring your Sexual Woman.

Nikki Armytage-Foy: after almost a decade of coaching, Nikki has become aware of how many women are faced with a block when it comes to expressing their sexual desires and receiving pleasure. Along with her own past experiences of an unfulfilling sex life and body shame. Her sexual journey had a massive impact on her self esteem and helped release her negative body image and eating disorder. This awareness sparked a journey of sexual exploration and discovery, which led Nikki to create this course for women to overcome their sexual fears, create a positive relationship with their body and feel more confident – not just sexually, but fundamentally in who they are. Read more on Nikki’s approach on women, sex and desire.
Hannah Abend: a physicist by training, and during 10 years working as an engineer, she learned to fiercely embody her feminine power whilst being assertive and operating successfully in a male dominated profession. Hannah also practices as a relationship and sexuality coach for both men and women, focusing on communication and listening styles. She has undertaken an intensive exploration of sex and sexuality for the past 3 years. She has a deep awareness of how important it is for women to be vibrant and sexually thrive, and has been facilitating workshops and leading seminars to spread this message to facilitate women living a more sexually empowered life.
This workshop showed me that sex, desire and pleasure provide me with immense power. How we enjoy pleasure and our partner is often a metaphor for our life. The things we do or don't do, including making ourselves vulnerable, expressing our wants and needs or withholding our own pleasure, are manifestations of how we engage with life and can support or hinder us in direct proportions. This weekend, I experienced shifts in body image issues that have taken me years to work through, I witnessed women (single for years) moving through fear of rejection and into exploring their own desires, making real commitments to changes that three days ago were not even in their consciousness.

Spending the weekend with Nikki and Hannah on this course was an eye-opening, life changing experience. I went with little idea of what to expect and not even sure I’d really get that much out of the course. I couldn’t have been more wrong. In just 48 hours they’d completely revolutionised how I felt about myself, my body and my future. They’d given me clear steps to shape the relationship I want, and allowed me the time and space to work through some issues I’ve bottled up my whole life. Plus, the whole weekend was great fun and I met some other incredible women who are now friends. I cannot not recommend them and the I Am Woman course, highly enough.
