"I truly appreciate the way you so clearly demonstrate the physical exercises, but even more, your explanation of the reasons and intentions within these exercises. For me, the act of bringing my attention to my body is quite challenging... this is something I am not used to doing! But I loved your suggestion of entering into a relationship/communication with my hands (and not just taking them for granted)" ~ ML
"I LOVED your class! You are a magnificent educator...
On my walk after taking the session, I thought to myself,
“my body hasn’t moved this freely…maybe ever.”
The openness I feel in my joints, and throughout my body is a whole new world of sensation. Thank you! The dance and shaking was so liberating! I normally do a bit of that myself but you really encouraged us to go wildAnd doing it after the other alignment work made such a difference." ~ JL

Qoya, created by Rochelle Schieck, is based on the idea that through movement we remember~
We remember, our essence as inherently Wise, Wild and Free..
Wise ~drawn from the wisdom of yoga~
Wild ~from the creative expression of dance~
Free ~from slowing down & moving how your body wants to move.
There is no way you can do it wrong, and the way you know you’re doing it right
is that it feels good.
Qoya is designed to help you remember the physical sensation of truth in your body & reclaim your inner knowing, intuition & instincts so that you let that feeling be north on your compass and let your body guide you on your soul's journey.

“Donna I've been thinking about you all day and sending you grateful blessings for your classes! I was in the shower this morning when I realized how 'good' I felt. Clear, me, whole, natural, like I'm s'posed to feel! Yesterday when we were exercising our knees I felt an energy, at first I thought I had imagined 'the sensation' until you had us repeat the exercise. At the time I didn't realize what an impact that exercise would have. I ran some errands this morning, walking about six blocks in total. My legs didn't hurt! For the first time in years, my legs didn't hurt! Once again, you have changed a life.” ~ Phyllis, Pastor
