Qoya is a sacred movement tradition that is practiced around the globe.
Based on the idea that through movement, we remember, Qoya helps us to remember that our essence is wise, wild and free. Wise, wild and free also draw reference to the movement forms that we practice. Wise- the wisdom of yoga. Wild- the creative expression in dance. Free- expanding our capacity to enjoy being in our bodies through feminine movement.
Qoya also helps us remember those things that can never be put into words. Like when you see a sunset and your whole body exhales. When you are on a road trip and feeling the sensation of adventure. When you get caught up in the contagious laughter of a child or feel the warmth of your lover's body in bed while it is raining outside. The feeling of accomplishment when you completed work you are really proud of or when you catch up with an old friend and at the end of the conversation you really feel like everything is going to be ok.
Qoya is designed to feel how the body and movement are a portal to remembering, to feel our perspective shifts from going through the motions to savoring life as sacred.
Qoya classes, workshops, and retreats provide a sacred space for all that feel the call to remember to be supported on their journey.
We dance with purpose and abandon.
We dance like our ancestors around a fire.
We dance with joy and enthusiasm.
We dance without reservation.
We dance because we can no longer not dance.
-Rochelle Schieck, founder of Qoya
