Rochelle Schieck
Creator, Qoya

Rochelle Schieck loves to move -- in her body and around the world. She started dancing as a young girl growing up in Minnesota until she was summoned by the call of adventure. Her love of movement and the desire to explore life's meaning compelled her to spend the last 10+ years traveling around the world as a student and a teacher leading classes as well as retreats and pilgrimages to sacred sites in Costa Rica, India, Hawaii, Greece and upstate New York. Her creation, Qoya, is a movement series combining yoga, dance and sensual movement based on the idea that through movement, we remember. We remember, as women, that our essence is wise, wild and free. Learn more about Qoya at and experience Qoya classes online on
