On today’s show we are going to talk about a very special form of movement that address our root cravings for movement. I talk about the four root causes of our cravings, what we want, how we relate to food and our bodies. That is bacterial, nutritional, emotional and physical. I’m going to be talking to Rochelle Schieck, the founder of Qoya dance. Qoya dance is a freeform, feminine dance class. I took my first dance class last summer with one of my friends. I invited some lady friends over and we had a dance class up on my roof deck which was so cool, under the moon and the sun was going down. It was so fun! It was this totally freeform, emotional, liberating, grounding, incredible movement experience! It reminded me of how much our bodies want to move and need to move for us to feel good.
We really do crave movement! Sadly, most of us have an f’ed up relationship with exercise and movement because it’s something we should do. We live in this masculine mindset about exercise that we should power through or push ourselves. Unfortunately, this can lead to total burnout! Movement has such an impact on our mood and well-being. I know you want to feel good in your body at every age and at every size. It’s hard to motivate yourself to exercise in a painful or boring way. Your body and soul really crave experience that’s filled with play and fun and intention and leaves you enlivened and not depleted.
In our interview, Rochelle is an author of a brand new book called “Qoya: a compass for navigating an embodied life that is wise, wild and free”. Rochelle loves to move. She started dancing as a little girl growing up in Minnesota until she moved on to her hero’s journey to her calling and her love of movement and her willing to explore compelled her to spend fifteen years exploring the world. As a teacher and a student all over the world she began instructing yoga styles for all ages and abilities, different dance modalities and in the last ten years she has led over 4000 movement classes! She has facilitated hundreds of private sessions and takes women on over twenty retreats on six continents. Not Antarctica yet! Her passion to explore the emerging essence of the feminine in her own life, then in movement coupled with her experience as a personal trainer, massage therapist, energy healer has all influenced her creation of this movement system: Qoya.
