Qoya Dancing with Lindsay McKinnon
October 25, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
One event on October 25, 2019 at 6:00pm
Qoya dancing is movement with meaning, like an internal pilgrimage, and is based on the idea that through movement we remember. We remember our essence as women is wise, wild and free. Wise – borrowing from the ancient traditions of yoga. Wild – the magic and radiance that comes through creative expressions of dance. Free – expanding our capacity to have fun, be playful, and enjoy being in our bodies through feminine flow. There is no way you can “do” Qoya “wrong.” The way we know we are doing it “right” is when it feels good. We focus less on how our movement “looks,” and more on how it feels in our bodies to move this way or that, adapting the movements as necessary. In Qoya we know that life is a dance, and everything we need for this journey is found within. Please wear clothes that you can move freely in, bring a yoga mat and some water. Prepare to have fun, to connect with others, and to be even more anchored to yourself as you leave.
