Qoya has come up on the podcast many times and it’s had a profound impact on my life, so I’m really excited to share this conversation with you.
We talked about learning to trust our bodies, healing from heartache, balancing our masculine and feminine energies, and what you can expect in a Qoya class.
In this episode we talk about:
- How movement creates flow not just in our physical health but also in our energy and our creativity
- Focusing on what feels good in the body and the trickle effect that has into other areas of our lives
- The benefits of getting sick and how it’s really telling us that things are working, not that they aren’t
- Learning to trust our bodies
- The story of how Rochelle developed Qoya
- What to expect at a Qoya class
- The evolution of Qoya and the new movement system that Rochelle is working on developing
- Balancing our masculine and feminine energies
- Healing from heartbreak in a way that helps us to be more whole and more in touch with ourselves
- What it means that through movement we remember that our essence is wise, wild, and free
