What Women are Saying about Qoya with Stacy Quast:
Stacy Quast conducts an inspiring and unique Qoya dance class. She has taught me much about astrology and Archetypes. Her class has a balance of free movement and choreographed sections that leave me feeling peaceful and whole. I especially enjoy the sections where she has us partner with another person and dance their intention as well as our own. I have been dancing since childhood and this type of modern dance has connected me to my deepest inner feelings as well as given me new information. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in dance as a means of grounding and connection with others as well as with the universe.
Qoya combines my love for the spiritual path with my love for dance and expressive movement. It teaches me to let go of self judgment and to simply find movement as fun & nourishing soul food. I love the themes that Stacy chooses for the classes, they are always mysteriously relevant to where I’m at in my life. Qoya with Stacy has also been a great way for me to meet other women I didn’t know before who that I can feel safe connecting deeply with. Try it! You can do no wrong in Qoya – it’s all play & all supportive to body, mind & spirit.
Stacy brings a beautiful presence to the practice of Qoya. It’s an experience all women should embrace. It can be unexpected and totally familiar all at once. If you’ve never done it… step through the uncomfortable and play full out to receive the full healing journey.
Stacy has a way of creating connection even when there is physical distance. She is a mastermind when it comes to pairing dance and music in a way that gently invites the exploration of the unique contours of the soul. I felt supported, safe and eager to discover the edges of my emotions and my body. Stacy has a gift for helping to tap into personal wisdom and her class left me feeling energized, inspired and grounded in love.
I had the pleasure of experiencing a private circle Qoya session with Stacy, and it was magical! Stacy guided us to inner answers through a mixture of great questions, and expression through dance. Also, there were surprise elements of intuitive goddess cards, which I loved! Of course mine was JUST what I needed and meant so much! Thanks Stacy, Your work is deep, freeing, fun, and transformative.
I have had the joy of dancing Qoya with Stacy both in person and over Zoom as well. Being a Qoya teacher myself, I appreciate the work and the energetic input that she does so beautifully. Paying attention to every detail, I know she prepares her classes with the loving attention you give to preparing a celebration for a loved one. She makes sure we all feel welcome, heard and seen in every sense of the word. She holds safe space for the participants to have their own experience in such a way that you feel nourished, supported and loved. I am grateful beyond measure to have her in my life as a friend, teacher, mentor, colleague and space holder.
I loved the Qoya class I took with Stacy. She guided us through the class with insight and enthusiasm. I moved around my room with ease and felt connected to the other women. I am always impressed with Stacy’s intuitive ability. Her music was inspired and I felt free and uplifted. By the end of the class I felt the magnificence of my womanhood, inner witch, and inner power! I would gladly take another Qoya class with Stacy!
I’ve taken Stacy’s Qoya class several times and each experience is uniquely magical! I love to dance, but I’m not a fan of the nightlife scene. Qoya provides the perfect opportunity to express myself freely, listen to my body’s wisdom, get a workout, and enjoy a powerful shift back into my authentic self. I highly recommend giving it a try!
