What we're about
We're excited to grow the Qoya community here in San Antonio!
Through Qoya we remember our essence as women is wise, wild, and free.
Wise, wild and free also draw reference to the movement forms that we practice:
Wise: the wisdom of yoga
Wild: the creative expression in dance
Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy our bodies through sensual movement
In every Qoya class, you experience 13 core components expressing a unique theme for the day that supports the embodiment of your feminine essence.
You also engage in ritual, pilgrimage, and community connections to open your heart, mind, and spirit.
You slow down and feel. You sweat. You play and have fun!
Your perspective shifts from going through the motions to savoring life as sacred.
You find the answers you seek in your body, and as well as the support to follow them.
In Qoya there is no way you can do it wrong and the way you know you're doing it right is when it feels good.
"Qoya is so much more than movement. Through Qoya we tap into the pulse of life. You know those moments where you see a sunset, when you’re on the open road and life feels full of possibility, when you are caught up in the contagious laughter of a child, when you feel the warmth of your lover’s body in bed, when you experience the fulfillment of work that you are proud of – when life expands and becomes sacred? Qoya is based on the idea that through movement we are able to tap into this essence, this sacred pulse of life. Once we experience it, we learn how to honor and express it. We learn how to cultivate this sense of the sacred, more and more, and not only in our dance, but in our lives."
– Rochelle Schieck (Creatress of Qoya)
In Qoya, you'll dance and feel free, connect with yourself AND with all of the other women! There is no other experience like it!
There are no special skills required, just the desire to move, and feel good! We move and stretch the entire body, listen to great music, and seek the pleasure in the movement! For more information about what a Qoya class looks like, please visit http://qoya.love
