Movement: Shaking

Shaking is a key component of any Qoya class; it's the part of the journey that allows us to take back our power and let go of all that's ready to go and what is no longer ours.

Shaking is a way to release without going through a mental process. Allow yourself to go through each body part moving vigorously, followed by a whole body shake.

Start with standing in an open space.
Shake left leg
Shake right leg
Lift both heels like a football player; double time your steps
Lay on your back and shake both legs up in the aire
Shake your hips
Shake your belly
Shake each arm
Shake your head and hair out
Shake your whole body and the space around you

Shake and dance, dance and shake.

To learn more about Qoya, read our Qoya Q+A with Alison Love.

"To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man's-land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again." -Pema Chodron

"Yoga is a dance of dealing with what is, and allowing yourself to fully experience whatever you're experiencing right here, in the moment. In life, we often resist what we don't like or don't want to do. Here, on your mat, is a safe opportunity to see what's on the other side of that. Physical asana is a measure of some higher possibility. Put your attention on what you want to have happen and be for it, and watch the magic unfold." -Baron Baptiste
