When did you take your first Qoya class? Costa Rica 2010

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? Every Qoya class is a chance to connect deeper to my spirit and life purpose. I love the gift of taking women with me on the pilgrimage to their soul.

What is your favorite song to dance to right now? I love shaking to the song New Harmonium from Irish musician Liam O'Connor's album. He is in the Guiness Book of World Record for Worlds Fastest Fingers (playing accordian) so I encourage my students to beat his record with their shaking.

What book has inspired you on the path to embodying the feminine? The one that I'm writing!

What would you tell someone who is thinking of taking a Qoya class for the first time? Trust that if you hear of Qoya and are in a place where it's offered, it's a sign you should take the class. It's hard to describe Qoya, so follow your curiosity and take a class.
