When did you take your first Qoya class? May of 2014

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya?  To teach Qoya means that I get to facilitate my own personal growth through sharing Qoya. With every phrase I share to help women breathe deeper, and drop in more, I share those words with myself. As Rochelle says, "When I heal, they heal. When they heal, I heal." Every single Qoya class I've taught has deepened my awareness, my connection with the Divine, and has allowed me to truly feel and know that I am Wise, Wild, and Free! I have also found my community in all of the other teachers, and dancers of Qoya. Deep, real, Divine, these women have reflected back to me my deepest knowing, and my wide open heart. Through their reflection I am able to serve my own community, my family, my marriage, and myself with more love, more light, and more reverence.

What is your favorite song to dance to right now?  My favorite song right now is Alaska, by Maggie Rogers.

What book has inspired you on the path to embodying the feminine?  The Radiance Sutras

What would you tell someone who is thinking of taking a Qoya class for the first time?  Every women who has a body, and wants to be more of who she is, will LOVE Qoya! Welcome home to your body. Welcome to a community of women who accept and love you just as you are. Welcome to Qoya.
