Qoya with Erin

Qoya has changed me, and that helps me understand how Qoya can help change YOU

Qoya has been integral to my relationship with my self, as well as my work as a therapist. I invite you to join me to learn how this amazing practice will help you expand in your work as a therapist, as you grow in your self-discovery through embodied movement.

I’ve been attending Qoya classes for a few years now, and I know this practice has been an essential part of healing my relationship with my own body. That’s why I knew I had to become a certified teacher and share this magic with my own friends and clients.

Movement has always mattered to me, but the freedom and the form of Qoya gives me a unique and consistent way to get in touch with the real embodied me. Add in kick ass music and the power of community that flows when celebrating movement with other women, and I’m in my own kind of heaven. I come back to Qoya again and again for the joy of it, but also because it’s part of the deeper inner work.

It’s like a therapy session between your body and soul that goes beyond words and gets to the core of it all. I would be honored for you to join us.

What is Qoya?

Qoya is a movement system based on the idea that through movement, we remember.

Qoya offers the sacred rebel in each of us the opportunity to defy cultural judgments and stereotypes about what our bodies “should be” and, instead, offers a beautiful container for creating a sacred relationship with the body as it is.

Through the practice of Qoya, we move beyond the “I must work out to make my body look good” mentality or “exercising is a healthy thing I have to do, so I’ll slog through it” kind of drudgery. (Though those are additional benefits of coming to a class!)

Once you open yourself to this practice you’ll begin to know deep in your bones this truth:  “my body is my sacred ally and portal for healing.”

When we gather together for a Qoya class, we remember our essence is wise, wild and free.

Wise: calling on the wisdom of yoga.

Wild: the creative expression in dance.

Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy being in our bodies through feminine movement.

Through dance, we use the body as a portal to the soul.
