Live Online Workshop: Rewilding Movement


Reconnect to play, natural creativity, and wildness with Ava Riby-Williams

Thursday 14th July 2022 | 7pm – 8.30pm (BST)

“You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”

– Mary Oliver

Join us for this exciting workshop with Ava Riby-Williams as we explore rewilding movement and reconnecting to play and natural creativity.

We are not separate from nature. Our bodies, our skin, our smell, hormones and desires hold a raw, wild (and often hidden) magic. When animals of prey escape the chase of predators in the wild, they shake their bodies to release and recognise the stress of the moment. How often do we release stress in this way? It’s likely that stress remains in the body and we continually to add to it.

Our bodies hold intuitive wisdom and wordless intelligence that can not only bring us into the present moment, but can guide us into living more fully as our highest selves – aligned with our wants, feelings and relationships: to self, other and the environment.

How might you move to truly express and release elements from your experience?
What is the soft, wild animal of your body telling you?
What does it need?

This workshop will be a mixture of guided fluid movement designed to connect to natural currents and shapes that our bodies follow, and free movement where you can allow your body to show you what it needs. We will also play with sound making and moving collectively as a group, inspired by hive animals.

All people/creatures are welcome. Movement is designed to be accessible and led by your own feeling.

What to expect:

  • Guided movement to connect to your body
  • Time to explore free movement
  • Support throughout to help you uncover your intuition
  • Release stress, have fun and rewild your movement practice

Exploring free movement can feel daunting, particularly if you usually practice guided yoga classes. But we encourage you to dive in and explore new ways of movement. Who knows what you may discover!

Ava Riby-Willams is creative and intuitive yoga teacher, facilitator and artist who sparks curiosity and play. Her teaching focuses on finding presence in the moment, empowering students to become their own inner teachers and recognising ourselves as diverse divinity, in unity. You can try Ava’s classes here.

We will be offering a on-demand playback of the workshop for 14 days afterwards, so you don’t have to miss out!
