A movement practice through which you remember your essence is Wise, Wild and Free. 

For those identifying as women of all backgrounds who want to trust their intuition more deeply and embody their wise, wild and free essence through movement, ritual and community connection. 

Learn to trust the sensation of truth in your body

Qoya Inspired Movement is an embodiment movement practice founded by goddess and guru, Rochelle Schieck, and based on the idea that through movement, you remember your essence is WISE, WILD & FREE.

Wise, Wild and Free also draw reference to the Movements embodied in a Qoya class. Wise: calls on the wisdom of the ancient practices of yoga, meditation, breathwork, contemplation and stillness, Wild: invokes creative expression through dance, and Free: expands your capacity to enjoy your body through intuitive & sensual movement. 

There’s no way you can do it wrong; and the way you know you’re doing it right is that it FEELS right and true.

What is it?

Qoya is a wellness embodiment movement practice which blends music, ritual and community connection with gentle yoga, dance, sensual movement and a somatic focus to turn your attention inward to a place of listening awareness, of your internal physical sensations, perceptions and experiences of the body. 


Qoya is an active portal through which your true inner essence can be accessed.


By following the physical sensation of truth in your body, you are guided and empowered back to feeling more like yourself. 


No prior movement experience is needed and there are no levels. Classes are more or less 75-90 minutes.




The experience is designed for those identifying as women of all backgrounds. Wear clothes that are easy to move in, bring water to drink and an open heart!

If I go to a class, what should I expect?

You can expect music, guided movement, respectful space, optional sharing, inspiration, kindness, reflection, FUN and to leave feeling more empowered and enlivened than when you began.

Is Qoya for me?


Qoya invites new ways of being to be expressed as a woman in life.

Ways you can build your strength and agility: physically, mentally, emotionally, & spiritually.

Ways you can be flexible, not only in your body, but also in the flow of your day.

Ways you can be agile like a child who falls down and gets right back up.

Ways you can savor an exhale that takes you into a hip circle, while remembering the gift of being a woman.

Ways you can love and honor what is — as it is — and still dare to dream bigger dreams.
