Program Description

Qoya is a movement system based on the idea that through movement, we remember. We remember our essence is wise, wild and free. This week, we will call on the wisdom of yoga, embody the wild, creative expression in dance, and expand your capacity to enjoy being in your body through feminine movement.

This 5-day experiential Qoya workshop is for women of all ages and movement backgrounds (including none). Qoya founder Rochelle Schieck combines movement, ritual, and community connection into an embodied exploration of the deep roots and intuitive visions for your sacred work in the world.

As you participate in movement classes and salon-style discussions, you will learn:

  • The inspiring fundamental philosophies behind Qoya
  • How to feel the physical sensation of truth in the body and follow it
  • Ways to share your most valuable offerings to your community through your sacred work.

Learn to feel the physical sensation of truth and allow it to lead you to a lifestyle of reverence. You will return to your home community feeling deeply rejuvenated with a renewed sense of purpose and a practical collection of tools to remember your essence as wise, wild and free.
