What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? 

It is such an honor to hold space for women to slow down, experience authentic connection, and tap into the light inside of themselves. It is so refreshing to give myself and others permission to feel a range of emotions and begin to trust that instead of avoiding the shadows; it is possible to mine them for wisdom. I also really appreciate that each class offers the opportunity to experience pure pleasure and joy.

When did you take your first Qoya class? 

I was one of Rochelle's very first students back in 2008 before she'd even discovered the word Qoya. I was allergic to movement before I started taking her classes, and now I spontaneously break into dance at a moment's notice. As I tell my students, I'm not a dancer and not someone who enjoys exercise - but I love Qoya movement. It's one of the only forms of movement that makes me feel more like myself.

Teaching Qoya is a gift, a way to express and to connect deeply with the Divine, within and without.

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya?

To say YES to my soul's deepest longings and listen to her whispers of truth. It is an opportunity to embrace my embodiment in this lifetime and to help others do the same. It is my favorite practice in my transformation toolbox to access myself and my most authentic essence in any moment. It is also a deep honor to carry this sacred transmission out into the world. Qoya is truly a form of Sacred Art, what I teach in the world, and it is a Divine marriage with my own medicine.

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

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.
