Qoya is a movement and embodiment practice for women that brings together dance, yoga, feminine movement and community. It's less about how it looks and more about how it feels and invites the opportunity to slow down and connect in.

Now in Auckland, we are offering a 6 week series - Opening to Love.
Come for every class or choose the classes that suit you.

Feb 5th - Heart Whispers. What is your heart whispering to you? As we begin 2019, if your heart was to lead what would it have you do now? Where would you spend your energy? What would you open your heart to? What would you reset?

Feb 12th - Embracing the unknown. Trusting ourselves and perhaps stepping off the trodden path isn't always easy; or going against the grain, others opinions or even the norm we have come to know for ourselves. Often when we say no to something, or there is an ending, there is a gap. This can be scary or lonely, yet it can also be a place to rest, to let go, to build foundations, to sink in, to create and nurture the soil for what's next.

Feb 19th - Heart's break so they can open. What does this even mean? Sometimes a death occurs either figuratively or actually. A death of a relationship, a job, a dream or a way of being. Often this is like saying no to what is not us, truly, and leaving space for something else that is aligned with who we are now.

Feb 26th - Gentle with myself. What is this thing called Self Love?

Mar 5th - Vulnerability. Being vulnerable can be one of the scariest things, yet can be so powerful. It is the key to love both within the self and with others, allowing ourselves to be real and true, embracing and honouring our humanity.

Mar 12th - Intimacy. Are you ready?

If you really want to explore this territory, come for each of the 6 classes, an initiation. Or pick and choose your classes.

Please email to book in qoya@rochellegates.com.
Or call Rochelle on 021 858 976.

Bookings essential.


$120 for all 6 classes paid in advance or $25 per class.

Come dance!

No previous dance or yoga experience necessary, come as you are!

What is Qoya?
Qoya is a movement system based on the idea that through movement, we remember.

We remember our essence is wise, wild, and free. Wise, wild and free also draw reference to the movement forms that we practice:

Wise: the wisdom of yoga
Wild: the creative expression in dance
Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy our bodies through sensual movement

In every Qoya class, you experience 13 core components expressing a unique theme for the day that supports the embodiment of your feminine essence.

You also engage in ritual, pilgrimage, and community connections to open your heart, mind, and spirit.

You slow down and feel. You sweat. You play and have fun!
Your perspective shifts from going through the motions to savoring life as sacred.
You find the answers you seek in your body, and as well as the support to follow them.

In Qoya, imagine there is no way you can do it wrong and the way you know you're doing it right is when it feels good. What if your life could follow the same rule?

Who is Qoya?
Qoya is for women of all ages, body types, and levels of movement experience.
