What would you tell someone who is thinking of taking a Qoya class for the first time?  

I encourage every woman to just give it a try. Qoya has deepened my connection to myself in a profound way. I can't imagine life without Qoya. I am deeply grateful for this practice.

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? 

It feels like I have found my pack of Wise, Wild, and Free Sisters! By teaching Qoya, I can offer the practice as an invitation to what I feel to be the gift of community and collective remembrance. We are blessed beings on this Earth, and by leading Qoya, I can honor the Mother, the Spirit World, the Qoya, and all that is above and below, in ways that feel sacred and reverent.

When did you take your first Qoya class?

In the beginning of 2011, at the opening of Dara Cole's Sacred Studio in Brooklyn, NY. I can still see the set up of the room, with candles and rose petals everywhere! I realized at my first class that this wasn't just another dance class, but truly an experience of healing, transformation, connection, and sisterhood.

What would you tell someone who is thinking of taking a Qoya class for the first time?

I would encourage them to follow that curiosity. Qoya is a fun way to move and to spend time in community. But I think the most powerful part of Qoya is being given the permission to do it in the way that feels good to you. To find the guidance from within. So when you take your first class remember, there is no way you can do it wrong. Explore and enjoy.

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? 

To me teaching Qoya is about being of service. It's about holding space for other women to connect with their own beautiful essence. Creating a community where we are supported and connected. Where we honor sisterhood, ritual, and ceremony.
