Through movement we remember
that our essence is Wise, Wild, and Free!
WISE: INSPIRED BY THE WISDOM OF YOGA
WILD: THE CREATIVE EXPRESSION IN DANCE
FREE: THE FREEDOM TO FEEL PLEASURE IN THE BODY THROUGH feminine, SENSUAL MOVEMENT
"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.
We reach out to our community, empower ourselves physically, clarify our intentions, and dance with our desires. In doing so, we activate a movement of women who connect with their essence as wise, wild, and free. We stand for the embodiment and feeling of more feminine ways of being that include but are not limited to deep transcendent love, intuition, transparency, self-expression, and radiance. We encourage one another to shine confidently as a woman who knows she is wise, wild and free." - Rochelle Schieck , Creator of Qoya
