Qoya - Full Moon Class and Despacho

  • MAYA Movement Arts 201 Smythe Street Greenville, SC, 29611 United States (map)

On the Saturday morning before every full moon, we gather to dance and share our gratitude with this special workshop.

We will have an extended Qoya class and share a gratitude despacho. A gratitude despacho is a beautiful, sacred, and tangible way to embody gratitude. 

Qoya is a movement practice for women, based on this simple idea : through movement we remember.

We remember, as women, that our physical essence is Wise, Wild, and Free.

Wise Wild, and Free also draw reference to the movement forms practiced in a Qoya class.

Wise: inspired by the wisdom of yoga

Wild: reclaiming your true nature through the creative expression in dance

Free: the freedom to feel pleasure in the body through feminine movement

In Qoya, you 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!

But Qoya is soooooooo much more than dancing, and good music. It is a way of living in your fullest expression of who you are. It is a way to tap into your greatest strengths, and your darkest night to be able to access ALL of you, to know that no matter what happens in life, you will be dancing.

Movement is metaphor, what would it feel like to literally and figuratively expand your heart? What would it feel like to be able to receive more, give more, and find pleasure in your day, your relationships, your business?

Qoya is an access tool, a map to help you come home to your body, where truth is available at all times.
