Experience the magic of Qoya

Come as yourself, leave as more of your Self.

Rochelle Schiek, Founder of Qoya

Qoya is a movement and embodiment practice for women that brings together the wisdom of yoga, the wildness and creative expression in dance, the freedom of feminine movement, sacred community, ritual, fun and more!

It gives us a chance to really slow down and connect in with our bodies and oursleves. Qoya focuses less on how it looks, and more on how it feels; there is no way you can do it wrong, and the way you know you are doing it right is that it feels good and true for you! It is based on the principle that everything is within and encourages us to explore life as a dance.

Qoya trains women to use movement as a way into their bodies to access their inner wisdom, to express their creativity, and to feel the freedom to revel in not only their bodies, but in their lives.

Rochelle Schieck the founder of Qoya expresses that it is less about learning how to do Qoya and more about unlearning the idea that we don’t know innately how to move our own bodies or that our own experience of our own bodies is somehow not trustworthy.

Upcoming classes:

Qoya in Auckland

@Grey Lynn Community Centre,  7.45pm – 9.45pm

Classes weekly:

First up in 2019 – a 6 week journey – Opening to Love – 6 weekly classes. Come for every class or choose the ones for you.

Feb 5th – Heart Whispers. What is your heart whispering to you? As we begin 2019, if your heart was to lead what would it have you do now? Where would you spend your energy? What would you open your heart to? What would you reset?

Feb 12th – Embracing the Unknown. Trusting ourselves and perhaps stepping off the trodden path isn’t always easy; or going against the grain, others opinions or even the norm we have come to know for ourselves. Often when we say no to something, or there is an ending, there is a gap. This can be scary or lonely, yet it can also be a place to rest, to let go, to build foundations, to sink in, to create and nurture the soil for what’s next.

Feb 19th – Hearts break so they can open. What does this even mean? Sometimes a death occurs either figuratively or actually. A death of a relationship, a job, a dream or a way of being. Often this is like saying no to what is not us, truly, and leaving space for something else that is aligned with who we are now.

Feb 26th – Gentle with myself. What is this thing called Self Love?

Mar 5th – Vulnerability. Being vulnerable can be one of the scariest things, yet can be so powerful. It is the key to love both within the self and with others, allowing ourselves to be real and true, embracing and honouring our humanity.

Mar 12th – Intimacy. Are you ready?

If you really want to explore this territory, come for each of the 6 classes, an initiation. Or pick and choose your classes.
