Qoya is a movement system for women of all ages, body types, and levels of movement experience. In other words - YOU!
Qoya was founded by Rochelle Schieck in 2009 and is based on the simple idea that through movement, we remember.
We remember our essence as women is wise, wild and free.
We remember how to trust the truth in our body as our sacred guide to embody our soul and live a life aligned with our truth by following our intuition.
Movement is the quickest, most effective way to tap into your body's wisdom.
Wise, wild and free also draw reference to the movement forms that we practice:
the wisdom of yoga
the creative expression in dance
expanding our capacity to enjoy our bodies through sensual movement
What to Expect
In every Qoya class, you experience 13 core components with a unique theme for the day.
You also engage in ritual, pilgrimage, and community connections to open your heart, mind, and spirit.
You slow down and feel. You sweat. You play and have fun!
Your perspective shifts from going through the motions to savoring life as sacred.
You find the answers you seek in your body, as well as the support to follow them.
Your body is your guide.
Your body is the compass you use to navigate the journey to trusting yourself.
The feeling in your body is your North Star, guiding you from external validation to internal.
It's the portal to the little voice inside that asks for what you REALLY want.
Qoya is designed to feel how the body and movement are a portal to remembering.
IMAGINE LIVING A LIFE IN WHICH YOU TRUST YOURSELF.
"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."
Private Qoya Events
Qoya can also be offered in a more intimate, customized setting.
Interested in bringing Qoya to your private event or collaborating on a project? Here are some examples of the ways we can co-create together and I’m always open to new, exciting ideas!
Private Group Classes
"Kelsey is an incredibly uplifting presence and creates a beautiful safe space for healing, exploration, stillness, and play. I attended a qoya class with her and was amazed at her ability to facilitate and bring together a group of women who had just met. She is magical and I’m so grateful that I met her and was able to attend!"
