Qoya Women’s Movement Workshops
4 and 11th August 2019 | 2.15 – 4.15 pm
Qoya is a movement practice for women (and female identifying people), based on the idea that through movement, we remember. We remember, as women, that our essence is wise, wild and free. Wise, wild and free also draws reference to the movement forms that we practice in Qoya. Wise calling on the wisdom of yoga, wild the creative expression in dance and free invites us to expand our capacity for pleasure in the body. In Qoya, we focus on how it feels, not how it looks. There is no way to do it “right”– the only way you know is that it feels good.Each Qoya class has a theme and for the Edinburgh Fringe, Australian dancer and certified Qoya teacher, Erin Fowler will be delivering 2 workshops;
Aug 4th “SURRENDER TO WHAT IS”
In this workshop we focus on the feeling of SURRENDER and how that feels in the body. How would it feel to surrender to everything as it is, right in this very moment? To stop resisting, to let go of control, and to release expectations and judgement. Imagine if you could trust the flow of life with every part of your body.
Aug 11th “NOURISHING YOUR SOUL”
In this workshop we focus on the feeling of nourishment and self care. For those of you halfway through the Fringe – whether as artists, producers, techs, arts workers or audience – how would it feel in your body to take a moment and give yourself the exact nourishment your body, mind and soul craves. To care for yourself like you would a loved one in need.
If you’re looking for something a little different and would like to feel more connected to your body and spirit, in the company of like-minded women then perhaps this is for you.You don’t need any movement or dance experience to participate. Wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle. Qoya is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Workshop will be facilitated by More info: www.qoya.love OR www.erinfowlerprojects.com
