Welcome!

 

I’m Carly and I’m a stay-at-home mama, yoga teacher and rewilding enthusiast.

 

I blend Well Woman Yoga therapy, cyclical living, women’s circles, restorative yoga and yoga nidra with my love of anthropology, rewilding and natural movement to offer a wild and cyclical practice for women of all ages, life stages and cycle phases. I call it Wild Woman Yoga.

Before I discovered yoga I felt broken and was living in survival mode. I went from work to ​sleep to work and from addiction to obsession looking for something I felt was missing in places I would never find it.

​​

That first taste of savasana in an East London gym class had me pouring with tears and howling with laughter as years of hardness melted away.

I followed that feeling up mountains, down streams, into woodlands, onto retreats and through my dreams and slowly I began to find what I had been looking for, discovering it had been within me all along. 

A journey had begun to remember the wildness within.

And so Moon Forest Flow was born.

For the Village 

From its very inception, long before becoming a mother myself, Moon Forest Flow has always been about reinstating the village.

Recapturing the feeling of a time when we were surrounded by the wisdom and company of women and girls of all ages, stages and cycle phases.

Here at Moon Forest Flow some of our most memorable and special moments have unfolded when our spaces reflect our wilder communities of times passed.

In the village, we would have been surrounded and supported by those of every age, from babes in arms to greying silver vixens and everything in between.

Every woman would have had a place and a role regardless of their womb status and choices. The wisdom of nature and women would have been woven into the core of our communities.

In our western world, there is a trend for attending a specialist yoga class for each phase of life and I certainly believe in the value of these spaces but I have also seen firsthand how wildly natural it is for us all to gather together.

Our primal senses perceive it as a homecoming to our original way of life. To our hunter-gatherer roots. And we both come alive and deeply relax at the very same time.

Wild Woman Club & Wild Woman Yoga are spaces for the whole village and honour the shifting needs of a woman’s womb life through a lifetime. 

So welcome to our village beneath the virtual trees, I am so delighted to welcome you here.

Wild & Cyclical

I blend Well Woman Yoga therapy, cyclical living, women’s circles, restorative yoga and yoga nidra with my love of anthropology, rewilding and natural movement to offer a wild and cyclical practice for women of all ages, life stages and cycle phases. I call it Wild Woman Yoga.

Wild Woman Yoga is a practice of exploring movement that honours and nourishes our wild and cyclical ways.​

  • Playful, spontaneous, fluid, cyclical, rhythmic and self-guided.

  • An invitation to surrender to the flow and be released from expectations of consistency, predictability and infinite resource.

  • A shift from rigid repetition and ambition to fluid spontaneity and contentment.  

  • Encouragement to practice in a way that is fluid and adaptable to the waxing and waning of our needs and nature.

  • A remembering of the freedom that lies beyond form.

​​A call back home to our wilder selves.

A wild and cyclical yoga practice, for me, is one that honours the rhythmical nature of our bodies and lives and as such can be nurturing and replenishing at certain times and fierce, wild and free at others.

Like the lioness we have the capacity to be both gentle, caring nurturers and fierce, fiery protectors, our wildness can be expressed in both a gentle purr and a ferocious roar.

As such my classes fluctuate with the phases of the moon offering an invitation to stay connected to the seasons and cycles of our bodies and nature through movement, rest and connection.

​​

Some classes are restorative and gentle & others are more dynamic offering the space to explore different approaches for different phases of the cycle and life.

Classes are also bespoke and adaptive to the needs of each individual group. Following a check in at the start of class I will craft an offering accordingly.

 

Wild Woman Club

Welcome to Wild Woman Club, a village for women who crave a wilder life. 

I'm Carly and this is the membership space and community that I created with the whole village in mind.

 

I share here as a yoga teacher, menstrual cycle awareness mentor, writer and women's circle facilitator and I show up here as a mother and as someone who is deeply interested in our ancestral past, natural movement and rewilding both of nature and of our lives.

 

My intention is to offer practices that are adaptive to our cyclical nature and supportive of the changing seasons and cycles of nature and of our bodies. 

 

My hope is that this creates a space that is welcoming and nourishing for women of all ages, life stages and cycle phases whether menstruating, trying to conceive, pregnant, postnatal, menopausal or simply interested in weaving more cyclical wildness back into modern life. Wild Woman Club is a space for the whole village and honours the shifting needs of a woman’s womb life through a lifetime.

So welcome to our village beneath the virtual trees, I am so delighted to welcome you here.

Know Grow Flow

My book Know Grow Flow shares my experiences, thoughts and ideas around cyclical living through Menstrual Cycle Awareness.

Within its pages you are invited to explore cyclical living through the practice of Menstrual Cycle Awareness, providing support as you get to know your cycle, grow with your cycle and flow with your cycle.

Circles

The circles I offer are down-to-earth and chill spaces where you can show up as you are without leaving any of yourself outside the room... no matter what!

In a world of predictability and restraint, isolation and constraint in circle, we are reminded of our elemental, cyclical and feeling natures and are invited to explore a life untamed.

A life where we are woven back into the tapestry of community and inextricably sewn into the fabric of life on Earth.
 

 

What is a Women's Circle?

  • A space where you can show up as you are without the need for masks (metaphorical, not covid!)

  • A place to connect and share with others

  • A place where you are always welcome exactly as you are

  • A place to be seen and heard in a world where women have been taught to be seen and not heard

  • A place where we’re working to upturn the dominant cultural narratives that perpetuate abuse, discrimination and repression

  • A place where we’re remembering and reigniting the wisdom of our ancestors whilst also redefining and updating what it means to be a woman

That’s just some of what a circle means to me but it’s not easily translated into words, the best way to discover the magic is to come along and discover what it means to you! 

As we retreat to the Moon Lodge, a tradition as old as time, something in us shifts and there is no doubting the tangible power of women in circle.

Come and join us?! 

I host regular online and in-person circles for my Patreon community.
