February 12th in New York City
8:00pm - 9:30pm
Class with Qoya founder Rochelle Schieck
This class is for women ages 18 and up. No prior movement experience necessary.
I recently asked a woman, "How are you?"
She looked at me and paused before answering. I said, "Are you feeling everything at the same time?" She sighed yes.
I continued, "That's the superpower of being a woman. You can feel contrasting emotions at the very same time! It's this ability to see and feel the wholeness of a situation."
We shared back and forth and at the end, I said, "I wonder if that is how the Earth feels? That ability to feel everything? The beauty. The grief. The love. The loss. The Everything."
Qoya began when a woman asked the question, "Everyone says I need to get out of my head, but I don't know how." For the last 9 years, the Qoya community of teachers and students have been dancing into the answer of that question. How do we step out of the conditioned responses of our culture and into the authentic mind, body, soul of our wholeness? How do we remember how to access, FEEL and then honor our truth as we live our lives?
Well, there is a lot to feel on this particular week in February 2018:
February 10th Venus (the planet that rules love and the feminine) transitions into all feeling Pisces.
February 14th is Valentine's Day and also a call to action by Eve Ensler for V-Day (link),
February 15th there is a new moon in Aquarius and solar eclipse. Eclipses happen 4-6 times a year and can bring about quantum leaps in transformation.
February 15th is also the Chinese New Year as we transition into the Year of the Earth Dog.
Qoya is a movement practice based on the idea that through movement, we remember. We remember our essence is wise, wild and free. Wise, wild and free also reference the movement forms we practice in class:
Wise = Yoga
Wild = Dance
Free = Sensual Movement
There are no levels in Qoya and no way to do it wrong! The way you know you're doing it right is when it feels good - but more than feeling good that it feels true.
With so much happening in the sky, come get more grounded and aligned with your feminine superpowers so that you can ride the waves of this time with authenticity and wholeness.
