Join Shanna Tabatcher, certified Qoya teacher, for a weekly women's movement practice called Qoya. Each Qoya class is based on a different theme and Goddess that Shanna weaves into the class.

If this is your first Qoya class with Shanna then your first class is FREE!


Qoya is a movement practice started by Rochelle Schieck to help women connect with their bodies and other women on a deeper level.

" Qoya invites new ways of being to be expressed as a woman in her life. Ways we can build our strength: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. Ways we can be flexible: not only in our hamstrings, but in the flow of our day. Ways we can be agile: like a child who falls down and gets right back up. Ways we can savor: an exhale that takes us into a hip circle of remembering the gift of being a woman. Ways we can love and honor: what is — as it is — and still dare to dream bigger dreams." Rochelle Schieck

Qoya classes are based on the idea that through movement we remember. We remember our essence is wise, wild and free.

Wise: calling on the wisdom of yoga. Wild: the creative expression in dance. Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy being in our bodies through feminine movement.

The class is only for WOMEN and is made up of 13 pillars and usually lasts 1.5 hours. The pillars incorporate sensual movement, dance and yoga. How can we use movement as a way to deepen our relationship to ourself. Qoya teaches us how to connect and listen to our bodies in order to begin experiencing life differently! We begin to experience life in a way that’s more in alignment with who we are. We begin to live life more in tune with our Inner Wise Woman and what we truly desire!

Three mottos of Qoya are:

1.) Come as who you are and leave as more of who you are.

2.) It doesn’t matter how it looks, it only matters how it feels.

3.) There is no way to do it wrong, and how you know that you're doing it right is that is feels good in your body.

The other thing I love about Qoya is that during each class there are opportunities to talk with our sisters to build a sense of community!
