Qoya classes are based on the idea that
through movement we remember.
We remember our essence is wise, wild and free.
Wise: calling on the wisdom of yoga.
Wild: the creative expression in dance.
Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy being in our bodies through feminine movement.
Lucy Smith has been training and leading Qoya classes for eight years. She is currently exploring Theater-theater of living-theater of family, laughter, joy, failure, grief,—losing the lines/losing the script of how to be exploring stories that are told and untold in me and my collaborators-of desire, hunger, shame, conditioning, dismissed loss- I am studying the color red and redheads, bacteria and fungi, eyes and the eye of the storm, diagnosis’s helpful and unhelpful, capitalism and urgency, ancestry and rituals of forgiveness, the ocean as a place of true belonging and always-motherhood.
Rochelle Schieck loves to move - in her body and around the world. In the last 20 years, she has traveled around the world as a student and teacher leading over 4,000 movement classes, training hundreds of Qoya teachers in 20 different countries, and taking women on over 70 retreats to sacred places in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Her passion to explore the emerging essence of the feminine in her own life and in movement, coupled with her experience as a personal trainer, certified massage therapist, shamanic energy healer, and her degree in Interdisciplinary Fine Arts have all influenced her creation of the movement system, Qoya. Qoya will celebrate her 10 year anniversary on March 1st, 2019. Learn more by reading her book, Qoya: A Compass for Navigating an Embodied Life that is Wise, Wild and Free or trying Qoya yourself by doing our free 10 Days of Qoya Love program where you receive a short video to move to each day.
