Qoya is an expressive dance and movement practice that incorporates elements of mindfulness, yoga, and dance. Qoya is conceptualized as a contemplative movement practice and a form of mind-body medicine.  It is based on a simple idea - through movement, we remember our essence as wise, wild, and free.

Qoya is also a powerful adjunct to mental health treatment, particularly when client goals involve strengthening the mind-body connection and increasing emotional awareness through expressive arts.  Qoya offers an outlet for expression and a tool for transformation that draws on the inherent wisdom of the body.

There are many ways to survive, but only one way to live: embodying your soul.
— Rochelle Schieck, Founder of Qoya
