Why movement - why Qoya
I have been dancing since I can remember and probably before that as well.
Movement has given me health and vitality, relief from stress, a means of expression, a way to integrate, learn and discover more about myself and my body and remember who I am.
After completing my academic studies I felt the need to rebalance my life and re find my flow and creativity.
The first book I found was The only dance there is by Ram Dass. I started a lifelong inquiry into the relationship between the mind and body, the neuro-physiology and psychology of who we are, and the role of creativity and movement in health and healing.
For many years I have practiced yoga and pilates. I have completed post graduate studies in movement and dance and explored the fields of Feldenkrais, and the Alexander Technique. The journey led me to Authentic Movement, 5 Rhythms and Qoya.
Qoya integrates all of my understanding about our inherent wholeness, anatomy, physiology, psychology, neuroscience, trauma recovery, coaching and healing. Qoya is based on the simple idea that through movement we remember. Drawing on the wisdom of yoga and mindfulness, the freedom of creative dance, and the intuitive knowing of the body Qoya offers a fun, relaxing and accessible way to connect with ourselves, become more conscious and create a space for wisdom and insight to arise.
