I invite woman to get out of their heads and into their bodies, through the practice of Qoya.
Qoya is a movement practice for women that is based on the idea that it is through movement that we remember, we remember that our essences is wise, wild and free.
Wise, wild and free also draws reference to the movement forms that we practice. Wise evokes the wisdom of yoga, wild the creative expression in dance and free invites us to expand our capacity for pleasure in the body through sensual movement.
The process of coming back to and trusting our bodies can be challenging for many of us; as we have been programmed by so many influences over the years to lead with our minds, to judge, criticise and doubt our physical experiences.
Recognising this challenge, when I am creating my classes, my intention is to create a safe, nurturing and sacred space. The space in which we move is so important, as it is also a facilitator, to the work. The right space provides the initial sensory experience of a class, and this can support dancers to really feel safe and start to get curious again about their own bodies. Supported by the external environment, the inward journey can go deeper, allowing us to access our true essence, with less distraction.
Yogangstar mats help me to create a beautiful welcoming environment by bringing colour, comfort and character, into any space that I go to. They are great quality, with their weight and grip ensuring they don’t slip when the dancing gets going. It’s great to be able to trust the floor beneath your feet, when you take the plunge to an embodied life.
If you are interested in experiencing a Qoya class with me, you can find my class details on the event page at https://www.facebook.com/infinitytherapiesmelb/ or on my website www.infinitytherapies.com.au
