About Qoya

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. ALL ARE WELCOME.

“Qoya is based on the idea that through movement, we remember. We remember our essence is wise, wild and free. Imagine if you knew the pathways into yourself to access your inner wisdom, creativity, sensuality, and soul so that you could fully embody and express your intuition, do your sacred work, receive life’s blessings, and commune with the divine. These are things that I invite you to explore in Qoya, not just in class or on a retreat, but so that you can feel the physical sensation of your truth in your body and follow that feeling as North on your compass as you navigate the journey that is your life”.

~ ROCHELLE SCHIECK. FOUNDER OF QOYA in 2009

The word ‘Qoya’, is from the Quechuan language of Peru and Bolivia, translating as “A Queen as a feminine manifestation of higher consciousness”.

Qoya creates a structure to move out of your head/thoughts/ego and back into your body/sense of self/trust within. There is an idea that when a body moves with intention there is an ability to hear the voice of the soul and identify with an infinite essence that is wise, wild and free. This is the simple philosophy of Qoya. The arc of a Qoya class is designed so you can feel how your body and your movement are portals to remembering, so that you might feel your perspective shift from going through the motions to savouring your life as sacred.

WHAT DOES A QOYA CLASS LOOK LIKE?

We gather. We rest. We draw an oracle card for inspiration. We share (optional). We set intention. We circle the body. We open the heart area and circle the hips. We explore simple yoga postures as a form of prayer for ourselves and other women present. We dance with our ‘shadow’. We rise from our ‘shadow’. We shake. We dance in choreography together for fun. We free dance as one. Sometimes we sing. We optional share once more and then we rest again. The arc of the class is to create freedom within structure, the rest is up to you!
