Qoya in Seattle with Rochelle Schieck
Wednesday, May 17th, 2017
Qoya is a movement system based on the idea that through movement, you remember. You remember your essence is wise, wild and free. Wise, wild and free also refer to the movements we practice in a Qoya class.
Wise - the wisdom of yoga
Wild - the expression of dance
Free - the freedom of feminine movement
Qoya can be practiced by all ages and movement levels. There is no way you can do Qoya wrong, and the way you know you’re doing it right is that it FEELS GOOD. More than feeling good, though, that it feels true. In the Qoya movement sessions on this retreat, we will focus on feeling the physical sensation of truth in the body and following it, locating our intuition as an actual feeling in the body.
Rochelle Schieck is the founder of Qoya. Since its inception in 2009, she has trained hundreds of Qoya teachers, taught thousands of Qoya movement classes, and led dozens of retreats in the most sacred places on earth with one intention in mind: to remember, and to help others do the same.
Qoya is designed to feel how the body and movement are a portal to remember our essence, to feel our perspective shift from going through the motions to savoring life as sacred. Qoya does this through classes, workshops, rituals, retreats/pilgrimages, teacher trainings, free videos online, a blog, and Rochelle's book, Qoya: A Compass for Navigating an Embodied Life that is Wise, Wild and Free in hopes that all that feel the call to remember can be supported on their journey. There are no levels, and it is a movement that people of any age or ability level can do. It has been featured in outlets like New York Magazine, Oprah.com, The Telegraph, and Psychology Today.
