Qoya is an intuitive movement practice for anyone who identifies as a WOMAN! There are no levels, no special skills required, just the desire to move. If you're curious, ask yourself these questions:

Does your body want to move in an intuitive, unprescribed way?
Do you feel music in your bones and want to move to a finely curated playlist of amazing music in a safe space where you can really, truly express yourself?
Do you crave deeper understanding of your own body's wisdom and intuition?
Do you want to meet other women in your community who you can have real, honest conversation with without the need to "fix?"

If you feel a deep resounding YES to any of the above, come and try Qoya. We set intention, we share (optional), we circle, we open our hearts and hips, we take a look at our shadow through movement, we shake, we dance together, and dance as one! This is a safe space to move, connect, and remember.

What happens when you move back into your body and engage deep writing and listening? In this afternoon workshop, Sarah will guide us through the phases of Qoya, a beautifully structured intuitive movement practice to awaken our own knowing. From this more embodied place, we'll explore writing and (optional) sharing to experience what happens when we invite our whole selves into the room. Join us for this rich alchemy of embodiment and creativity.
Please note this offering is for women-identified folks and their allies.

Or contact Jamie via email for address to send check:
jamietheyogaroom@gmail.com

Sarah Whitridge + Jamie Worster are hosting a Qoya + Yin Yoga afternoon which will bring together the medicine of movement and the medicine of deep release. Together we will explore the idea of "POWER". We will integrate this theme into writing, movement, the power of connection with other women, the power of space to unfold, the power of time to evolve and the power of deep rest. We believe these two forms of movement are a great compliment to one another and will carry you through a fun and embodied experience on a Spring afternoon.

Additionally we will be donating 20% of the profits to SeaChange Yoga.

You are also invited to gather for an optional, informal POTLUCK at Jamie's house prior to the gathering!

We invite you to show up just as you are.

Saturday 

March 16th 2019

The idea behind this extended class is to have 4 hours to create connection with self and your feeling body. More time to connect to flickers of your wisdom or to hear clear messages. More time to connect to your spirit through dancing and then heading out to the woods to feel the pulse of life through nature. And more space to connect to the growing Qoya sisterhood in Portland.

+ MOVE YOUR BODY ~ A quintessential Qoya class with added lovely bits (goes without saying!)

+ LISTEN IN TO YOUR SUBTLE LAYERS ~ A 30 minute part guided Yoga Nidra inspired REST to bask in your radiance

+  LISTEN TO EACH OTHERS STORIES ~ Extended time to share and listen in a constructive setting

+  TICKLE YOU TASTEBUDS ~ A homemade spread of afternoon tea with the idea of 'deluxe' in mind! (Food intolerances + Allergies accommodated)

+ TUNE INTO NATURE/SOUL ~ Silent Walk as a group or Solo Walking meditation, Tree-hugging all optional. Spontaneous connection with nature. Time for quiet journaling will also be added.

** Workshop purchases/reservations are non refundable and must be pre-paid to hold a spot. Check your calendars to see if you have left room for self-care, factor in your energy levels and note if you are bleeding on or around the workshop date (if relevant) and make your decision wisely in honour of yourself.
