Through movement we remember our essence is wise, wild and free.



Qoya is movement with meaning.  It's founded on the idea that through movement, we remember.  We remember as women that we are wise, wild and free.  Wise, wild and free also draw reference to the movement forms we practice.  Wise from the wisdom of yoga.  Wild from the wildness and creative expression of dance.  Free from feminine movement - to slow down and revel in the pleasure of moving how our bodies want to move.  There is no way you can do it wrong and the way that you know you are doing it right is that it feels good.
