There are times in life when we feel there is a golden opportunity. There is the seed of potential. There is a portal of possibility to get beyond what you know and to expand into a reality of more love and more expression of love in all that you do.
While working on an Intro to Qoya video idea with a videographer friend of mine, we started to explore what images and ideas would be powerful for someone who had never heard of Qoya. The question arose, "Who is Qoya made for?"
I told her what I imagine when I'm writing a blog, teaching a class, planning a retreat or doing a private session. I imagine offering Qoya and its philosophy to a person who is on the precipice of making a soul based decision or has just made a choice that may not make linear rational sense but feels true in their bones.
In a world full of external expectations, it can be deeply restorative to slow down enough to feel what is most true internally. Qoya offers the tools to continue to deepen connection to self, others and the world honoring and embodying our essence as wise, wild and free.
Translation: Qoya is for the moments when we choose love over fear, commitment to our deepest desires over our giving up for convenience, it's to awaken and support the part of ourselves that can relax and trust that there is no need to worry, because everything is working out in its divine timing and we can enjoy the journey by dancing with it.
At the end of the day, Qoya is to empower women to learn how to trust their inner wisdom, the physical sensation of truth in their body. It's based on the idea that you know. It's an invitation to focus less on how it looks and more on how it feels, not only as you are moving around in class, but as a metaphor as to how you live. It's a reminder that all answers are within. It's the idea that you learn how to trust the physical sensation of truth in your body and follow it like north on your compass. It's healing. It's empowering. It's done with love.

I feel incredibly blessed and honored to be surrounded by so many others who are empowering souls through healthy living, sage soul based business and entrepreneurial advice and even jewelry! One of my dearest friends, Becca Kannapell, along side her mother, Linda Kannapell, and her sister, Mia Kannapell, just launched their website for Pound Jewelry.
Every piece of theirs I have is a portal to deep honoring of what has been, is and can be. There is a magical feeling in every one of those pieces and they're doing a special today, Friday, October 3rd for 20% off with the code: POUNDLOVE.
If you like the necklace in this picture, you can find it on the pound jewelry website as the Rochelle necklace. Rochelle means little rock in French. Qoya means Queen in Quechuan. This necklace combines them both.
There are times in life when we feel there is a golden opportunity. There is the seed of potential. There is a portal of possibility to get beyond what you know and to expand into a reality of more love and more expression of love in all that you do. The secret is to realize that that time is always now. Step in and dance with all you are and feel. Dance makes everything better. In other words, who Qoya is made for is all of us remembering our essence that is wise, wild and free.
Through movement, we remember.
P.S. A bunch of you reached out thinking the Costa Rica Qoya Retreat is sold out. We added a second week Costa Rica Retreat, April 4-11, 2015 and there are plenty of spots, so if you are thinking about this immersive experience, please reach out if you have any questions. I love Qoya retreats because we allow ourselves to dive into this reality sunrise to sunset. We eat healthy nourishing foods, move our body consciously with meaning, connect with community, step outside of the mundane and open ourselves to the mystical with rituals and ceremonies. We let go, say thank you and dream again and the more we attune and honor our minds, bodies, hearts and souls with these experiences, the more sensitive we become to that soul voice when it speaks. I also extended the early bird a couple more weeks for $200 off if your soul is calling you to go and save some money too! xo
