Story of the Shift: Rochelle Schieck

Episode 10

Rochelle Schieck is the founder of Qoya. Qoya combines movement, ritual, community and pilgrimage for women. Since its inception in 2009, she has trained hundreds of Qoya teachers, taught thousands of Qoya movement classes, and led dozens of retreats in the most sacred places on earth with one intention in mind: to remember, and to help others do the same. Her work has been featured in outlets like New York Magazine,, The Telegraph, and Psychology Today. To learn more you can visit and read her book titled Qoya: A Compass for Navigating an Embodied Life that is Wise, Wild and Free.

Rochelle has so many words of wisdom that all seemed to have led from a question, “How do I get out of my head and into my body?” That led her on a journey of exploration that, thankfully, we get to share with her. This interview has hidden gems all through it but for me the take away was, your practice doesn’t need to be perfect, you just have to have one. And perform it. You will find many more including; talking about making room for our truth, the most important practice and I’ll let you listen to hear the rest.
