YOU WANT TO FEEL GOOD IN YOUR BODY.

At any size, at any age.
Either you don’t know how or you do know how, but it’s hard to motivate yourself to do it.
You don’t want to do exercise that is painful or boring.
Your soul is craving an experience that’s filled with intention, truth, and play,
that leaves you enlivened rather than depleted.

You want to trust yourself more,
to find the answers inside, rather than outside.
You want to feel the intuitive tug of your soul,
but you sometimes question it when you do hear it, and it’s irrational advice to trust.

You’re a busy woman with a full life.
At times, you get overwhelmed by your obligations and the endless stream of messages from a culture that urges you to do more, faster, better.

You want to embody your feminine essence.
To relax into receiving rather than burning the candle at both ends achieving.

But how?

Your body is your guide.
Your body is the compass you use to navigate the journey to trusting yourself.
The feeling in your body is your north star, guiding you from external validation to internal.
It is the portal to the little voice inside that asks for what you REALLY want.

It may feel impossible to carve out time and space to hear that voice, but the truth is...

It’s really simple, takes little time, and is available to everyone.

HOW DO YOU TRUST YOURSELF?


Movement.

HOW DO YOU TRUST YOURSELF?


Movement.

Movement is the quickest, most effective way to tap into your body's wisdom.

Your body is the most technically complex organism on earth.

It stores and processes information in ways that your mind can’t, and is the most powerful resource you possess.

When you move, you access that information.

You experience the physical sensation of truth - what’s true for you - and gain the confidence and clarity to follow it.

The design of Qoya is based on the idea through movement, we remember.

We remember our essence of women is wise, wild and free.

We remember how to trust the truth in our body as our sacred guide to embody our soul and live a life aligned with our truth by following our intuition.
We remember that the body is holy, and specifically the temple of our eternal soul.

WHAT IS QOYA?


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

We remember our essence is wise, wild, and free.

Wise, wild and free also draw reference to the movement forms that we practice:

Wise: the wisdom of yoga
Wild: the creative expression in dance
Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy our bodies through sensual movement

In every Qoya class, you experience 13 core components expressing a unique theme for the day that supports the embodiment of your feminine essence.

You also engage in ritual, pilgrimage, and community connections to open your heart, mind, and spirit.

You slow down and feel. You sweat. You play and have fun!

Your perspective shifts from going through the motions to savoring life as sacred.

You find the answers you seek in your body, and as well as the support to follow them.

In Qoya, imagine there is no way you can do it wrong and the way you know you're doing it right is when it feels good.

What if your life could follow the same rule?

(Spoiler alert: it can!)

WHO IS QOYA?


Qoya is for women of all ages, body types, and levels of movement experience.

“Everyone is telling me I need to get out of my head and into my body, but I don't know how!”

I’m Rochelle, and I created Qoya when a woman voiced this frustration. Qoya is the movement system I created to help women feel good in their bodies. I designed it to be an accessible way for a woman to feel the physical sensation of truth in her body and embody her feminine essence. In the last 10+ years, I’ve taught over 4,000 movement classes and hundreds of private sessions, and have taken women on over 20 retreats to 6 different continents.

What I’ve learned is this: wisdom exists in all of us, and movement is the best way to access it.

Qoya means Queen in Quechuan (an indigenous language used by shamans in South America). Not an emotionally distant bejeweled figure who holds a position of inherited power, but Queen that translates as “a female manifestation of higher consciousness.”

In other words - you!

"As an Olympian and a physical therapist, I was curious to take Rochelle's class while on her retreat in Mexico. Qoya Goddess Rochelle was able to not only satiate my need for strengthening/engaging my body she did this while teaching me to move from true feeling. I loved that she began with controlled movement and moved in to free flowing self movement. My love of yoga centers around taking care of myself physically and mentally and the teacher is a crucial part. Rochelle is confident in every aspect of her teaching, which allowed me to let go and follow her guidance. She gives perfect cues that enabled me to perform the movements while being in touch with my physical and mental being. Qoya is very freeing and allows us to get out of our daily patterns and truly dance! I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from a true Mastress. After going back to my regular yoga class, I realized how much I REALLY dig Qoya and the movement/energetic part and the Awesome Music that fit so perfectly to what we were working on emotionally. And did I mention how much I appreciated the class that gets rid of ego and encourages unconditional love to flow?!" - Ann Trombley, Olympian, former national champion, physical therapist and author of Serious Mountain Biking

"Rochelle is a inspiration to all who are blessed to know her. She draws out our blissed, healthy, energized best selves. I not only passionately recommend her classes to you, I want to gift them to all seven billion of my neighbors on Planet Earth!" - Lisa Bloom, Los Angeles, CA, Attorney and Legal Analyst for CNN, CBS TV and Author of New York Times Bestselling Books "Think," "Swagger," and her new release Suspicion Nation

"I just spent 7 days co-facilitating a retreat with Rochelle in Mexico and I am struck by how deeply healing the Qoya experience is. By Inviting women to dive into the body based sensations of feminine freedom, Qoya takes participants off the super highway of egoic assessment and into the restorative oasis of pleasure, connection & creative expression. Exuding joy and grace, Rochelle is pioneering an important and highly enjoyable gift for womankind." - Dara McKinley, creator of the Goddess Proccess. www.daramckinley.com

"Rochelle is a natural at this work. What I love is that it's just an extension of her innate curiosity and insight about the inner workings of people, energies and spaces. As a leader, she's constantly creating ways to help people tune into their true selves." - Ophira Edut, New York, NY, Astrologer. www.astrostyle.com

"From the moment that I met Rochelle I was in awe. This is a woman who has travelled all over the globe in search of wisdom and joy. As a result, what I discovered in class was that in her gorgeous body she held the secret to helping me find my joy.  I felt as free as when I was a little girl. It was so much fun, I giggled, danced and most of all I remembered how gorgeous and incredible my body is too!" - Sarah Charlesworth, Actress and Interior Designer, Toronto, Canada


"Rochelle is not only an inspiring person but also an uplifting, encouraging, and incredibly gifted teacher.  I left every class with a light heart and renewed determination to let my exercise routine focus not only on keeping fit, but aligning my desires and dreams with every movement in my being.  I recommend everyone I know to take a class from Rochelle." - Erin Marsz, Musician, New York, NY. www.erinmarsz.com

"I was quite blown away from working with Rochelle. I came into our session with no idea what it was going to be like and no expectations. What I got from it was a deep remembering of who I am and that my primary purpose is to be fully present in the full juicy, sensual, wonderfulness of my feminine self. Rochelle allowed me to reconnect with the fact that the source of everything is within me, as it is within every woman. All I can say is WOW." - Kate Northrup Moller, Author and Entreprenuer, Portland, Maine. www.katenorthrup.com


"Rochelle Schieck's Qoya class is more than a movement class, it's an embodiment program.  She has a way of casting a very particular spell that will take me straight into that delicious yogic flow where I am able to forget myself, dance me into the remembering of who I really am and then spit me out in full celebration of the journey." - Dara Gay Cole, Owner and Founder of Sacred Movement Studio, Brooklyn, NY.  sacredbrooklyn.com

"I've always been the person who says, "I can't dance".  Rochelle taught that dancing is for the thrill of feeling the movement of the body and has nothing at ALL to do with thinking about what you look like. Being a pianist, I have always felt comfortable behind a piano, but always felt I could offer more if I dared to step out into center stage.  Qoya opened me up to myself and the pure, fun of feeling my own movement, so when I took center stage for the first time, I related to the audience through music AND movement!! It was truly exhilarating." - Lucinda Anne Butler, Musician, TSO & Moby, Florida. www.lucindaannebutler.com

"Rochelle lives and breathes a boundless passion for movement. She exudes a magnetic force with this passion that is contagious." - Janine Francolini, Founder and Board President of The Flawless Foundation, Portland, Oregon. flawlessfoundation.org


 

"Taking part in Rochelle's Qoya classes opened me up to experimenting with movement and my body in a way I had not explored before. I have taken dance classes since age 3, been doing yoga for 10 years and have studied Pilates and Nia. However, taking Rochelle's Qoya classes instilled a new sense of freedom in my body that I had yet to discover." - Becca Kannapell, Jewelry Designer, New York, NY. www.poundjewelry.com


"Dear Rochelle, I really want you to know the depths of my gratitude for having your presence in my life.  I have remembered so much of who I am over the last 3 months or so of dancing Qoya during weekly classes and while on one of your retreats.  Your guidance, joy and ways of being have uncovered so much that have been dormant within me for I do not even know how long.  I only know how happy I am these days.  How much peace and joy I have all the time.  How my wisdom surges through me and how my fear recedes more and more all the time. Thank you so much for being who you are in the world and leading us all to higher places!" - Julia BallBoutique Owner, Laguna Beach, CA
