kutolewa: release + move
a grounding practice of african healing through: movement, kemetic/hatha yoga, therapeutic sound/music, afro drumming/instruments, mindful connection and a guided intentional release workshop.
this unique soundscape and movement experience combines multiple therapeutic elements to create a deeper exploration or what release can/will look like for you so that you enter into october feeling lighter and more energised for the life you're creating.
every body is welcome. we are avidly passionate about creating and fostering inclusive space that allow people from all walks of life to participate in activities and experiences that nourish your body whilst having fun!
being woke, in perfect alignment and practically flawless is definitely not required to participate - in fact, it's actually preferred that you show up as your authentic self, in your mess and in your glory.
space will be provided to connect with like-minded people during the event (but don't worry, socialising will be facilitated and supported - so your social anxiety can rest easy knowing that we'll be there with you the whole way).
just bring yourself (+ your friends are welcome too!), an openness to experiencing and exploring, comfortable clothing to move in (if you want to come in your old trackies or pj's, feel free to!), and come ready to enjoy being in your body again (or maybe for the first time).
yoga mats, props, blankets, drums, blooming tea, notebooks & pens are all provided as part of this unique experience, so you don't need to remember anything but yourself.

shoshi - an innovator, a creative, a south african, a builder of connection, an inspired musical lover. shoshi will be curating the music and supporting the most incredible vibes within the space to allow you to feel like you're returning/experiencing home in newfound ways. if you haven't listened to @kayaradioperth on spotify or noongar radio, this is your official invitation (and recommendation) to do so.
workshop tickets are available as a sliding scale to allow you to contribute within your current means/capacity. accessibility is at the forefront of what we do at moja and this applies at all levels, so pay as you feel you can.
arriving at the space:
we will commence the session with a warm start, meaning that you will have 15 minutes on either side of the ticketed start time to arrive, settle into the space, ask any questions that you may have, choose where you'd like to be during the workshop and connect with some wonderful like-minded individuals.
there is ample parking outside of the studio and on the street, so you can arrive knowing that you won't be faced with the stress of figuring out where to park. i recommended parking on one of the nearby side streets or at woolworths inglewood and walking across.
