In My Body - Qoya Auckland - Pukekohe Class

I am very excited to be teaching my first class in Pukekohe this month. June 6th, 6pm - 8pm.

Theme: In My Body
What does it feel like to be fully grounded in your own body? To know this space intimately. To cast out all other claims to it, opinions, judgment or ideas about what it should be doing, giving, or how it looks. What if you knew this body of yours as your sacred temple and you were able to fully take up space, allowing no-one to energetically or otherwise make claim to your body or the space around you? What would it feel like to be In Your Body and know and trust it's discernment of what feels right for you and what doesn't. What if your body was your truest compass and guide? Your body is your constant companion throughout your whole life. Come and dance your relationship to 'In My Body'.

No previous dance or yoga experience necessary, come as you are!

For those new to Qoya, Qoya is a movement and embodiment practice that brings together dance, yoga, feminine movement and community. It's less about how it looks and more about how it feels and invites the opportunity to slow down and connect in.

Bookings essential, spaces are limited to 10 people. 
Cost $22 per class.

Is Qoya for you?

YOU WANT TO FEEL GOOD IN YOUR BODY.
At any age. At any size.
Whether or not you know how, it’s hard to motivate yourself to do it.
You don’t want to do exercise that is painful or boring.
Your soul craves an experience that’s filled with intention, truth, and play, that leaves you enlivened rather than depleted.

You want to trust yourself more, to find the answers inside, rather than outside.
You want to feel the intuitive tug of your soul, but you sometimes question it when you do hear it, and think it’s irrational advice to trust.

You’re a busy woman with a full life.
You get overwhelmed by your obligations and the endless stream of messages from a culture that urges you to do more, faster, better.

You want to embody your feminine essence.
To relax into receiving rather than burning the candle at both ends achieving.

But how?
Your body is your guide.
Your body is the compass you use to navigate the journey to trusting yourself.
The feeling in your body is your north star, guiding you from external validation to internal.
It is the portal to the little voice inside that asks for what you REALLY want.

It may feel impossible to carve out time and space to hear that voice, but the truth is...

It’s really simple, takes little time, and is available to everyone.

HOW DO YOU TRUST YOURSELF?
Movement.

Movement is the quickest, most effective way to tap into your body's wisdom.
Your body is the most technically complex organism on earth.

It stores and processes information in ways that your mind can’t, and is the most powerful resource you possess.

When you move, you access that information.

You experience the physical sensation of truth - what’s true for you - and gain the confidence and clarity to follow it.

Qoya is based on the idea that through movement, we remember.
We remember our essence as women is wise, wild and free.
We remember how to trust the truth in our body as our sacred guide to embody our soul and live a life aligned with our truth by following our intuition.

We remember that the body is holy, and specifically the temple of our eternal soul.

WHAT IS QOYA? 
Qoya is a movement system based on the idea that through movement, we remember.

We remember our essence 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, imagine there is no way you can do it wrong
and the way you know you're doing it right is when it feels good.
What if your life could follow the same rule?

WHO IS QOYA? 
Qoya is for women of all ages, body types, and levels of movement experience.
