A word from Sonja: QOYA

QOYA is a movement practice based on the understanding that through movement we remember.  We remember our essence is wise, wild and free.  When we partake in a QOYA session we come home to the truth of ourselves, being guided by our internal wisdom rather than the dictates of an external authority.

By combining the wisdom of yoga, the wild expression of dance and the freedom to explore the realms of pleasure within your own body, QOYA is a transformational portal back to yourself.

Expect yoga, dance, connection and deep awakening within.

A word from Scania: GONG BATH MEDITATION.


The Gong will be played in many different ways and for various purposes and intentions. There will be different builds and release cycles that can release old emotions. Due to Scania’s intuitive ability, each session will be different. At this point, the body and mind are in a vastly altered and receptive state of consciousness. For most people, this is a profound and deeply moving experience.


The Gong is a psychoacoustic gateway to heightened states of awareness and consciousness. It is an ideal tool for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, and to break up emotional blockages. When skilfully played, gongs stimulate and resonate all cells in the human body simultaneously and recalibrate the parasympathetic nervous system.


Magic happens when there is no separation between the gong, the Yogi, the player and the listener. Playing and listening to gongs is about spiritual, physical and emotional resolution. The opening of doors and windows to the Universe, the moving of collective energies to enter a spiritual dimension.
