What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? 

It means taking the most life-changing spiritual practice I have ever engaged in and sharing it with women that I love. It means opening my heart a little more with every class and being fortunate enough to witness other women open their hearts too. An open-hearted woman is a powerful force for good in the world.

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? 

I know that to offer Qoya is an act of service for the divine and the Goddess. I am very grateful to be able to create from the heart, to make sacred spaces for spirit to land, and to share this. I love the sovereignty it offers, the ability to come home and let things fall away through movement, dance, and ritual. Qoya is my favourite creative process - music, sound, breathe, yoga. I feel like I can get out of the way, open to the guidance the pours down, and hold space.

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya? 

To be in service to women in my community. To answer my soul's call in offering something meaningful. It feels like such a privilege to come together with a group of women to laugh, cry, dance, and support each other. From that first real life Qoya class, I felt I had come home. I felt I had found what I had been searching for. It is an honour to now teach classes and witness other women having that same homecoming back to themselves.

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

I would firstly say come! Really come as you are. There is no way you can do it wrong and the way you no you are doing it right is if it feels good to you (this is a principle of Qoya). Come to dance and connect. I had an ache before Qoya that I didn't completely know how I would meet. Through Qoya, through dancing, through this community, through meeting, loving, and connecting with women, this ache has most definitely been met, seen, acknowledged, and loved up.

What does it mean for you to teach Qoya?

Qoya is a body-centered vision quest inward.  It is an opportunity to know yourself in a deeper and unspoken way and for a minute break through the barriers of what form and society have created for us.  I love it - and hope you will too!
