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.Find out more »

This 30 hour professional training introduces the foundational principles and practices of Restorative Breathwork. Students will learn several Restorative Breathwork sequences aimed at awakening the instinctive nature of the breath—free, uninhibited, and connected to the divine. In awakening our breath, we not only revitalize our life energies, but also open a gateway to higher consciousness and our own inner powers of healing. The training focuses on the breath’s essential role in calming the nervous system and stilling the mind. This quality of stillness reconnects us to our True Self, fostering personal transformation and spiritual awareness. Emphasis is on assisting students in acquiring a degree of personal mastery of the breath practices introduced in this training to support the development of professional skills. This empowering and transformative program creates the experiential framework for vibrant and profound experiences that will enrich a personal and professional practice for years to come.
This course is eligible for 30 CE hours with Yoga Alliance and 24 CE hours with the International Association of Yoga Therapists.Find out more »
