My friend Rochelle Schieck is an adorable, sexy, wise, playful, pixie-person who seems to leave a trail of glitter wherever she goes. She has traveled the world, studied with many of the yoga, consciousness, and personal growth greats, and has most recently created a form of movement she calls Qoya after an ancient Peruvian word meaning, among other things, queen and a female manifestation of higher consciousness. Rochelle recently graduated from Shaman school (how many of us can say that, really?) and I recently had the pleasure of experiencing one of her private healing and movement sessions. It was, in a word, mind-blowing. Rochelle is a channel for the wisdom of the ages and a delightful reminder of the divine in each of us. She invites us to remember who we are as women through embodiment, or being present in our bodies. You can take a Qoya class, which combines yoga, dance, and innate, sensual movement, right here in New York City. Rochelle is also leading a retreat in Costa Rica for women to connect with their most fabulous, feminine selves along with my friends Alisa Vitti of Laughing Sage Wellness and LiYana Silver of Redefining Monogamy. The retreat is December 11 – 18th, 2010. Tune in to this episode of Glimpse TV to learn one simple step you can take right now to feel more alive this instant, how to ritualize exercise, and for the pure lusciousness of Ms. Schieck.
When you notice you’ve gotten really in your head, how do you practice getting more into your body?
Rochelle talks about “ritualizing exercise” and I love the concept. What are some rituals you have around your workouts that make them feel good to you?
What do you love about your body?
