Qoya Workshops

Moon Yoga, Mount Albert, Auckland 
Thursday Evenings Once a Month 

Restarting June 2021 

Qoya is a movement practice that brings together dance, yoga, sensual movement, community, intuition, ceremony and more.  At Moon Yoga, Qoya is generally offered as a three-hour workshop, combining movement and ceremony, with themes inspired by the times we live in.  No previous movement experience is required.  The gift of Qoya is to trust the truth in your body and to remember the infinite truths we carry within us through movement.  To learn more about this beautiful practice please click here

One-on-One Sessions with Samar 

In Person in Auckland, at Retreats Worldwide and Online 

Bookings being taken now for June 2021 onwards  

At Moon Yoga in Auckland, and wherever I physically travel, I offer Arvigo® Therapy, Mayan Spiritual Healing and Holistic Pelvic Care™/Holistic Pelvic Energy™ sessions.  Depending on the needs of the client, there is often more than one modality woven into each session.  I listen deeply to the requests of the body, which frequently arrive through energetic perception, inner vision and via the subtle visceral language of the cells.  While my work is primarily directed towards supporting the health of the female reproductive system through working manually with the uterus and her surrounding structures, there are applications within my practice for all people.  For those who don't have access to similar practitioners locally, a phone session could include nutritional, herbal, movement-based, spiritual and intuitive support, as well as guidance to creating and implementing home-based nurturing rituals and self-care practices.   Please email to book a session.

Cost: $111 NZD per hour  

Qoya Initiation All Gender Teacher Training - Auckland

July 2021 - July 16th to 18th 2021 

With Samar Ocean Wolf Ciprian  
Moon Yoga, Mount Albert, Auckland
 

Qoya is a movement practice, and its also so much more.  Bringing together dance, yoga, trusting the inherent intelligence of your own sensuality, connecting with community and following the truth in your body are only some of the many incredible gifts of Qoya. 

Originally, a women's practice that naturally evolved to understand the importance of naming the inclusion of anyone who identified with the feminine, Qoya has evolved in its capacity as a practice to be a strong container for the human experience of being embodied.  This All Gender Training is for any adult who is ready for the work of holding embodied space.  

Intro (Level 1) is an online training.  In July, Initiation (Level 2) will be offered in Auckland.  This rich weekend affords each participant the opportunity to teach every pillar of a class and immerse themselves in the rich landscapes of Qoya's many ceremonies.  Intensive (Level 3) will be offered in New Zealand in October 2021.

Cost: $600 USD

Registration opening soon.

Qoya All Gender Intensive Teacher Training 

September 30th to October 7th 2021 

Sky River Sanctuary, Ohui, Coromandel, New Zealand

With Samar Ocean Wolf Ciprian 

The Qoya Intensive is a week-long immersion into the deep water of what Qoya is and who you are as you swim through it.  It is the final layer in the Qoya teacher training journey and very often, a profoundly life-changing transmission.  If you feel the call to offer work that is soul-centered and of the body, to be in service, to dance your prayers, and to be together as we shift into the power of remembering, please join us.  

Originally, a women's practice that naturally evolved to understand the importance of naming the inclusion of anyone who identified with the feminine, Qoya has evolved in its capacity as a practice to be a strong container for the human experience of being embodied.  This All Gender Training is for any adult who is ready for the work of holding embodied space.  

Prerequisites include Intro (Level 1) and Initiation (Level 2) Qoya Teacher Training and teaching eleven practice classes. 

Cost: $2500 USD

Vision Quest Retreat - Healing Land 

‘Healing Land’ can be read two ways.  We can do things to heal the land, and we can allow the land to heal us.  At the end of 2021 we will be approaching almost two years of having lived with the intensity of a warming world through the lived experience of a pandemic, out of control fires, floods and other natural disasters and the direct changes to our atmosphere. 

Our Earth needs healing.   But, in order for us to become the kind of people who can offer this to Her, we need Her.  

 

This weekend of Vision Questing, Qoya, ceremony and curated experiences that connect us directly to the living world is an opportunity to come into reciprocity with the earth, gently and fully.  Open to all adults. 

Cost: $500 NZD 

Please email to enquire and register.
