Qoya at Sacred Space on Sherbrook

Hello out there!

Tonight is the first Qoya class at Sacred Space on Sherbrook, after 3+ years of teaching all over the city I am getting to teach in my own space. Baby, believe it.

One of the seeds that became Sacred Space on Sherbrook was planted a couple years ago and it happened while I was at a Qoya class. I remember that I was feeling so frustrated that day because I was having such a hard time finding a beautiful and available location to teach Qoya out of.

I danced that night with the frustration of not having that, and by the end of the class I sat down with my partner and said "I know!! I know why I can't find it!!" I took a deep breath and said, "It's because I'm supposed to create it!" And we both said..."of course." Cue the laughter and relief. I stopped really looking for anywhere else to rent space from after that, I knew what was coming and I was willing to wait.

It was a moment I will always remember because it is a lived experience of the power of the body, of movement and knowing. I prescribe to the idea that by the time our brain has a realization our body has already known it for months. I like to imagine I avoided a couple more months of frustration and exasperation by receiving that message from my body that night.

And that's one part of where Sacred Space on Sherbrook came from...and tonight is a big deal, to be teaching tonight is having a dream come true.

If you'd like to join, save a spot here!

There will be classes every Wednesday for the rest of the summer, and a couple of Sunday classes too! The classes will be taught either by Michelle or myself! That's another amazing part of the whole thing - Michelle was my partner that night I had the realization about needing to create the space and now she's a certified Qoya teacher too! Oh yes, it can happen like that.

Wherever you are today, I hope you can take a few deep breaths, I'm taking them with you.
