Qoya is based on a simple idea that through movement, we remember. We remember, as women, that our essence is wise, wild and free. Wise, wild and free also draw 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. In Qoya, we focus less on how it looks and more on how it feels. There’s no beginner, intermediate or advanced levels because there’s just one level and that is when it feels good you’re doing it right. The intention of a Qoya class is to remember the physical sensation of truth in your body; an exploration into how a woman’s body wants to move. The actual class is done while having an amazing time dancing, sweating, stretching, yoga-ing and connecting to other women with some good tunes to help guide the journey along. Every class is different, and done to a soundtrack that takes you from the joy of Bollywood to ragas from India to the magic of Mali. From the beats of the Lower East Side, up to the heights of Heaven and back down to the dance floor of Soul Train.
Restorative Yin Yoga
A quiet yet profound and highly therapeutic style of yoga that is available to all students at all levels. This class slows down the fast-paced world we live in to find peace, harmony and balance. Restorative and yin yoga based postures, along with breath, are utilized to rejuvenate the body while calming the mind and replenishing the spirit. Various forms of meditation are combined with the postures to provide a healing and revitalizing experience. Find calm in the storm, and create wholeness in your life.
SOMA Movement Journey
SOMA movement journeys are an organic blend of guided and explorative movement, devoted to returning us to the majesty of our embodied nature.
