NEXT WEEK!!! Wu Tao Dance comes to Eastover Estate & Eco-Village on October 26th and you're invited! I am offering two separate 7 week series that run on Fridays 6pm-7:15pm and on Sunday 11:15am-12:30pm. Wu Tao Dance is a form of dance medicine that is anchored in the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through specific choreography, the five core dances of Wu Tao are designed to free up any stagnant or held energy in the body to create a fresh, unencumbered flow of life through the meridians, or energy channels of the body. The result is deep peace and a profound connection to your own inner stillness. Registration is available through BCC's website here - http://shop.berkshirecc.edu/BCCEastover-Community-Wellness-Offerings_c_145.html - or just drop in and pay $15 per class! Come dance this flowing, gorgeous form of dance medicine on the grounds of beautiful Eastover with me and get ready to get clear, peaceful and fully reconnected to your body. Any questions, please be in touch! #wutao #wutaodance #dancemedicine #traditionalchinesemedicine #acupressure #acupuncture #makkohostretches #meditation #shiatsu #meridians #qi #lifeforce #wutaonyc #annabrookehealing #dance #move #bodylove #yoga #zumba #taichi #qigong #qoya #eastover #berkshires #healing #wholeness #deeppeace
Have you checked out the class and teacher directories on our website lately? We updated them to make it easier for you to find teachers and classes near you. Don’t see a class near you listed? Make sure you check to see if there’s a teacher living near you who you can reach out to for a private session. And another way to get Qoya classes in your community is to...become a Qoya teacher yourself. ;-) https://buff.ly/2REj5rH⠀ ⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement
Life is meant to be messy. Mistakes are made, lessons are learned, we grow, we change. We have the power to author our stories. Make it interesting. Life isn't perfect -- that's the beauty of it.
There's a QOYA workshop coming up at @serasanabeecave on 10/19 from 7:30-8:30 PM ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hosted by Nicole Peel. Cost is $30 per person ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Qoya classes are based on the idea that through movement we remember.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We remember our essence is wise, wild and free:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wise: calling on the wisdom of yoga.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wild: the creative expression in dance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy being in our bodies through feminine movement.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #qoya #qoyaworkshop #serasana #serasanabeecave #movement #divine #freedom #wisdom
On this day, Mahagauri is revered as the shining, radiant, and beautiful aspect of the divine feminine. According to legend, to attain Lord Shiva as her divine companion, the Goddess forgoes all comforts, even food, and braves heat, cold, rain, and storm for many years. Her body is covered with soil, dirt, insects, and dry leaves, and her extreme penance and devotion leads Lord Shiva to accept their divine union. When he pours water on her, the Goddess emerges as Mahagauri, as white as a jasmine flower and clothed in white. The Goddess embodies her true essence: purity and divinity in surrendering all for her greater path and true desire. The color for today is sky blue, and the food offering is coconut. ⠀ ⠀ Click the link in our bio for a video about her with her mantra and a movement video to help you embody your own purity.⠀ ⠀⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #mahagauri #navratri

FINDING THE SWEET SPOT Did you know that the hummingbird visits over 1000 flowers a day? Always actively seeking the sweetest nectar, they remind us to forever seek out the good in life and the beauty in each day. At our next Qoya class, we will be using the hummingbird as our inspiration as we dance with finding our own sweet spots! Finding the sweet spot.

Meet Kunyit. ( “Tumeric” in Bahasa {Indonesian}). . . . Yesterday I had the pleasure of sketching him during an incredible lunch that I had equal pleasure of helping prepare at The New Earth Cooking School adjacent to Bali Silent Retreat. (About an hour northwest of Ubud.) . . A. Ma. Zing human: Simon Jongenotter {chef of restaurant Zest @zestubud in Ubud, Bali ~ and creator of New Earth Cooking School} converted a former chicken shed to Cooking School based on “food forestry”...he also lectures on “the future of food” every Thursday from 3 to 5pm at Zest. (I heard about Simon during Permaculture Design Course @kulkulfarm back in February.) . . So grateful for my current running buddy @sunshinegreenie. Janan and I have known each other for a few years in Nyc. She came over to attend @betsyblankenbakermurphy Qoya/Writing Retreat @soulshinebali and has stayed at my villa for last few days. . . The GPS was messing with us yesterday while attempting to find this place. We kept on ending up at a hot spring! Got to tour the surrounding rice terraces and villages before FINALLY finding this magical spot. 🌱 🌱 🌱 #taradixonart #brooklynartist #ayearinbali #documentaryinthemaking #gratitude #love #loveplusgratitudeequalsmagicandmiracles #food #cookingclass #newearthcookingschool #thefutureoffood #bali #permaculturedesign #kulkulpdc #love #earth #carpediem #caresstheday #cookingwithlove #baliadventure #friendship #sisterhood #qoya #movementismedicine #foodismedicine #dogportrait #balidogs #whynot
RISE SISTER // . The Mystic always rises. As she let her soul sing, she let go of lifetimes worth of silenced truth missiles cemented in the deepest caverns of her soul. A voice snubbed out for centuries, for saying too much, for standing up too much, for being too much. . Her intuition and bigness restrained for centuries, but not any more. She could not be locked away, muted or extinguished any longer. Not now. Not ever again. . As she let her spirit move her, she danced right through the flames. Resentment, anger and rememberings stomped out with every blazing convulsion, sway and kick. Sensing her in the distance, one by one her sisters joined her, knowing this dance by heart. . The movement created space for their tears which flowed deeper than all of the lakes with no keys from all the ages. Soothing and cooling the burning that once enveloped her entire being. Her whole body. All of her bodies. All of their bodies. All of our bodies. . Never forgetting. But still rising, just as she planned to. Just as we planned to. Rising and rising and rising and rising and rising. Standing taller from all the sisters who came before and will continue to come again. . The Mystic always rises. . @qoyawithellie . . . . #qoya #dance #freedom #selfesteem #confidence #truth #yoga #savasana #music #intention #love #expression #self #selflove #wisdom #sisterhood #friendship #breathe #sister #essence #connection #live #explore #canfordcliffs #poole #women #danceclass #circle #infinite So much gratitude @rebeccathoughts
I’ve done this. Have you? While I see value in looking for the gifts in all our experiences, including an injury, I’m feeling Crow’s point. Hard. Don’t romanticize injury. It harms us all. Consider circumstances. Habits. Where I’m responsible. Where the larger system (contemporary yoga scene)—how I teach, how others teach, how yoga is marketed, etc—is responsible. I’m floored by this article (you can find it on her blog) and immediately contrite... I’m sorry for the ways I may have contributed to harm in my classes...even the pictures I share. I was doing my best. I will continue to do my best, integrating what I’m learning about yoga, the body (my body, students’ individual bodies), breath, poses, going fast /slow, pushing vs inviting/allowing, sticking to my own alignment/purpose for teaching rather than trends and what’s popular...all while trying to be honest. Real. Transparent. Thank you for coming to my classes the past 9 years. Yoga is the deepest relationship I’ve ever known. May I/we navigate changes with grace and humility and joy. . . . . #yoga #yogaandwriting #proseandposes #healinghappens #realtalk #bodyasally @alexandriacrowyoga 📷✍🏼💜
As we slowly dance through the veil from the season of light to the season of darkness, embrace your wholeness. Be all the things. The pressure to label yourself and slot yourself into neat categories gives a sense of control and order in your world. But remember you are far more vast than a title, a status, or an astrological sign. You are ultimately undefinable, a spiritual being having a human experience. All parts of you are holy, and like the rivers, the rain, the soil, they’re natural resources available to teach and support you.⠀ ⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #wholeness
🇮🇹🇺🇸 Celebrati. Sempre. Pensiamo che celebrarci non sia carino, sia vantarsi, tirarsela, e abbiamo paura che quelli che ci ascoltano si possano offendere o ci possano invidiare. Quindi spegniamo o abbassiamo la nostra luce. Di più e di più. Sono qui per ricordarti che celebrare chi sei, chi sei diventata e quello che fai ha un grande effetto su te e gli altri intorno a te. Ogni giorno celebrati almeno tre volte. È un modo fantastico per sentirti bene. Ed è ancora più Figo se lo condividi con un’amica. Inizia ora nei commenti!! Per cosa ti vuoi celebrare? ❤️🔥. 🇺🇸 Celebrate yourself. Always. We think that bragging is not nice, it’s not fair, we are afraid that those people who listen to us may get offended or envy us. So we switch off our light. Again and again. I am here to remind you that to celebrate yourself, who you are, what you have done has a great effect on you and those that are around you. Every day celebrate yourself at least three times! It’s a great way to feel amazing. It’s even better if you share it with another woman. Let’s start now! What do you want to celebrate yourself for? ❤️🔥. #adventures #italiangoddess #femaleempowerment #divinefeminine #yoni #spirituality #sexmagic #sacredsex #sacredpleasure #selfcare #selflove #tantra #sensuality #wordporn #sacredwomb #feminineawakening #embodiment #womenswork #sensuality #selfmastery #lifegasm #bossmomlife #wisewildfree #lamiavita #qoya #mybodymytemple #womenempowerwomen #luna #moon

On the seventh day of this festival, Kaalratri is revered as the ruler of of time and slayer of darkness. With her blessings, you can free yourself from the limitation of time and the prison of fear. Her untamed and ferocious power aids in illuminating the consciousness and rids devotees of worry, fear, and sorrow. The color for today is red, and the food offering is jaggery (brown sugar).⠀ ⠀ Click the link in our bio for a video about her with her mantra and a movement video to help you embody your own slayer of darkness.⠀ ⠀⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #kaalratri #navratri
Woman, it is time to claim your truth. The truth that is rooted in your body, your experiences, your feelings, your stories. Sometimes painful, sometimes triumphant, but always possessing a certain strength and resonance because it springs from the deepest ground of your being. It lacks posturing, manipulation, or pleasing; it simply is. . To speak from that place, to connect from that place...it is magic and sacred and intimate. And, because the feminine journey is one of embracing paradox, when you embody and express your own truth, you can begin to LISTEN, to hold space for and support others to do the same, EVEN if the truth of their experiences may seem contradict your own. Because feminine truth does not rely on ideologies and abstractions, it can encompass paradox, weaving the many threads of human experience into a majestic, rich, and glorious tapestry. . Reclaim Your Wild Feminine is a sacred nine-month journey to come home to yourself. To reclaim your wholeness. For more information, visit the link in my profile. ♥️
Blissful moments of connection with this group of fierce beautiful women. The first ever QOYA retreat in Taiwan led by Gladys was truly a precious gift. ✨Space is still available for our next QOYA circle on 11/24, DM or see link in bio for details on how to join! 💁💕🌊✨
I will be offering a Qoya class and despacho ceremony on 10 November in godalming from 12-4pm. In this Qoya workshop, we will explore the theme of gratitude as a superpower. First by connecting to the physical sensation of gratitude in our bodies through dance, yoga and free and feminine movement during the Qoya class and then through the shamanic ritual of a despacho. A despacho ceremony is medicine. It is a ritual of energetic exchange for healing to re-establish ‘right relationship’ or ayni with yourself, others and the earth. The ceremony is simple. You say thank you. You say thank you for as much as you can think of. The whole idea is to be so full of gratitude that you can tangibly feel it. And then you soak it in and begin to crave time each day to simply say thank you. The despacho is an opportunity to express all the thanks we have in our heart, mind and spirit. To book your place please go the link in the bio. #qoya #qoyalove #despacho #thanks #gratitude #workshop
4 more sleeps to the #Cacao and #Qoya #ceremony xx We will dive into our exploration of the wisdom with assistance of two powerful goddeses xx There is still a few places left xx #qoyawithiga
I recently asked a woman, "How are you?" ⠀ ⠀ She looked at me and paused before answering. I said, "Are you feeling everything at the same time?" She sighed yes. ⠀ ⠀ I continued, "That's the superpower of being a woman. You can feel contrasting emotions at the very same time! It's this ability to see and feel the wholeness of a situation." ⠀ ⠀ We shared back and forth, and at the end, I said, "I wonder if that is how the Earth feels? That ability to feel everything? The beauty. The grief. The love. The loss. The Everything."⠀ ⠀ How do we step out of the conditioned responses of our culture and into the authentic mind, body, soul of our wholeness? How do we access, FEEL, and then honor our truth as we live our lives? ⠀ ⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #feel
Monday mood. So it dropped 40+ degrees from yesterday to today...from 85, hot and humid yesterday afternoon to 44 and rain this morning. I was listening to this song when dropping my husband off at work earlier and it felt like the perfect way to gently usher in the week. Are you ready to kick ass or are you easing into this Monday? Music is one of my favorite ways of setting the tone for my day and week, and I am clearly in the “easing into it” category currently 😊

Katyayani is a fierce force to reckon with. She was born as the Warrior Goddess to Sage Katyayan, and with her birth, she came to destroy one of Hindu mythology's biggest demons named Mahishasura. After the Goddess killed him, she received the second name of Mahishasuramardini (Destroyer of Mahishasura). She is revered for her innate strength, immense power, and fierceness. The color for today is white, and our food offering is honey. ⠀ ⠀ Click the link in our bio for a video about her with her mantra and a movement video to help you embody your own immense power.⠀ ⠀⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #katyayani #navratri

Love for ourselves is the most important and sometimes the most difficult. . In the last year I have been going through bouts of anxiety and have found that in the last few months it has been more difficult than ever. In those moments full of anxiety I have found that it was very difficult to find myself and love myself in those vulnerable moments. And even when I wasn't feeling anxious I wasn't filling up my cup of self love as a reminder to myself that I am OK. . I have always found it easier to care for others, to love others, to put others first but loving myself it's not so easy. I know I'm not the only one who feels like this and maybe it's just a fleeting moment when we forget to love ourselves or maybe it lasts longer but today I honour myself and take the time to offer my self some love. . Next Sunday I will be teaching Qoya in Angel (which is much bigger than my kitchen 😂) The theme will be Self Love. (Link in Bio) . I know it can be hard to love ourselves, this video was super hard to film because it's not exactly what I'm feeling but I'm dancing with those feelings too. . If this theme feels challenging please know that I get it, I am waiting for you to come just as you are and leave as more of you. . Our mind and bodies appreciate us for taking a moment to connect in, to give thanks and to give love. . Sending you so much love . #qoya #qoyalove #selflove #love #anxiety #vulnerability . 🎶 I Love Me by @meghan_trainor
Qoya is community. Qoya is pilgrimage. Qoya is sisterhood. Qoya is freedom. Qoya is wisdom. Qoya is rewilding. Qoya is home. Thank you Ireland. Thank you @qoya.love. Thank you thank you thank you #qoya
Here is an invitation to take time to dream today. When you put your attention on things, they grow. Sometimes you get what you ask for, but you rarely get it the way you think you’re going to get it.⠀ ⠀ The next question: how can you feel more relaxed? “Well, when I do yoga on Tuesdays and Thursdays, maybe I could stay in Savasana 10 minutes instead of 2 minutes. Oh, and I just moved into a place that has a bathtub, so maybe I could take a bath once or twice a week.” You start to realize that what you really want isn’t just your dream, but the FEELING of the dream. Chances are, you can do something to find that feeling now (spoiler alert: dancing helps).⠀ ⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #dream
The thing about balance is that it can look different for everyone. Today, take a moment to think about what balance looks like for you, and where you can create more of it in your life.
The Qoya gathered in Dunfanaghy, Ireland to support one another. I’ve never been part of a group of women who would fly across the world simply to support other women in doing what they love. I love these ladies so much. We danced, we got vulnerable, we felt community in our bones, we prayed, we shared gratitude (and sooo much nourishing food!), we sang with the locals at the pub, we honored the land, and we laughed, and cried, and did all the things Qoya do when we gather. I hope to be back in Ireland as soon as possible! There’s so much more to explore!🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪 #Ireland #qoyaeurope #qoya #qoyagathering #movement #ritual #pilgrimage #community #wisewildfree
Skandmata is honored as the mother. Her name derives from Mother of Skanda (her son with Lord Shiva, also known as Kartikeya who is the brother to Lord Ganesha). She’s revered as the nurturer, provider, and life giver, and she is warm, gentle, kind, and embodies all qualities of a mother. The color for today is orange, and the food offering is bananas. ⠀ ⠀ Click the link in our bio for a video about her with her mantra and a movement video to help you embody your own nourishing qualities.⠀ ⠀⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #skandmata #navratri
For those not following @infinitytherapies - you should! Today’s qoya class was epic. ❤️ I forgot to get a pic of the dancers but Check out my winning “pick a card” 😉 and the beautiful space that is @gatherwomenspace ! #womenunite #speakyourtruth #success #qoyamelbourne #qoya #infinitytherapies
WISDOM We have become so accustomed to believing that it is our knowledge that will make us “more valued” in the eyes of the world. And as we constantly seek more knowledge, we see that that knowledge is constantly changing; and that what you thought was real yesterday is no longer real today. But wisdom, that seems to remain unchanged. It seems to be a constant, something that we can go back to again and again. It is reliable, and stable and consistent throughout time. The traditions of centuries, constantly invite us to go within. To stop the climbing and the striving; reminding us; that our wisdom cannot be found external to us. For our wisdom is within. In every Qoya class, we move to explore this wisdom, we move to unbind this wisdom and we move to embrace this wisdom. We move to open up, to listen, to honour and to trust; everything that lies within. At the next Qoya class, we will be exploring the theme – Finding your Sweet Spot.

Qoya & Gong ~ a place where you can rest, restore, refill your cup. ✨ ✨ Scania and I love to create a space where you can truly be yourself, drop the mask and be real. ✨ ✨ Just for a moment, no expectations. ✨ ✨ As each women feels the safety of the space, she allows herself to unfurl, to soften, to feel. ✨ Here is where we find our strength and vibrancy. Here is where creativity flows. Here is where friendships are made. ✨ ✨ It happens in the softening. 💫It’s friendly, it’s informal, it’s ok to laugh (a lot) and it’s ok to cry. I hope you’ll join us. ✨ ✨ This Thursday at Canford Cliffs Village Hall, 7.30-9.30pm. #qoya #gongbath #sisterhood #forevergrateful 🙏 #poole #love
This morning at 10am @gatherwomenspace . Women gathered! We gathered to explore what it feels like when we speak our truth. We discovered that it’s not only when we speak our own truth but also when we truly witness others in their truth, that our genuine freedom is inspired. Through movement we remembered the joy, the trust, the clarity and the expansiveness that our bodies feel when we express ourselves fully. And for that I am so grateful. 🙏 Next class at Gather, Seddon is 11/11. #qoya #qoyaaltar #livewildwiseandfree #womenunite #speakyourtruth #setyoursoulfree

Creation is always therapeutic. It stimulates all parts of your consciousness and gives your spirit a chance to express itself, no matter what form that expression takes. If there’s something that feels unexpressed right now, try using something other than words - draw, paint, dance, sing, play an instrument, crochet a scarf. Create and see what you discover on the way. p.s. We made a whole course on using Qoya to inspire your creation! It guides you through a 9-stop process of feminine creation that you can apply to any project. Learn more here: https://buff.ly/2EicbFJ⠀ ⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #creation
Don't be afraid to bare your teeth when needed. Don't be afraid to let out a roar. Don't be afraid to stand your ground. You have just as much right as anyone.
Kushmanda is revered as beams of light, and her radiance and glow inspires this name. According to legend, she lived inside the sun and gave light to the whole universe. She can be seen as the embodiment of inner light, strength and power.

Yoginis and lovers of the Divine Feminine! This year in May I launched the beauty filled and power packed offering that is the Divine Feminine Retreat. This was an extraordinary journey into the pulsating Shakti that infuses all of life! 💥 ~ I’m super excited to be announcing the return of this all-inclusive 5 night deep dive into Goddess which is happening in Ubud, Bali, 1st to the 6th of June 🌸 ~ The offering has expanded with the introduction of an exquisite Qoya practice with Bree Cowell in honour of Goddess Lakshmi! Plus, a private sound healing session by @pyramidsofchi in the largest venue dedicated to sound in the world 🙌 ~ These two events have been mindfully chosen to support your journey over the six days. It is through movement and sound that we invite the Goddess Shakti deeper into the fluid, subtle and creative realms of our being and awareness ❤️ ~ Participants will also receive a handmade mala of their choice from the Malas By Aimee range (launching early next year) ✨ ~ Please see the link on my profile to take you to the full description of this magical journey to the Goddess within! I would love love love to have you there 🙏 📷 @sarahandrijcichphotographic #divinefemininerising #awakeningshakti
“Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit together the broken pieces.” -B.K.S. Iyengar ⠀ ⠀ While we typically think of yoga as exercise and prayer as something we do with our minds, in Qoya, yoga is prayer and prayer is something we do with our bodies! Try doing a movement today - it can be yoga or any other movement - and do it with the intention to honor something, a person or situation in your life. How does it feel to pray with your body?⠀ ⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #yoga
Me reading my “soul story” made from a Three Card Story Writing prompt at @betsyblankenbakermurphy Qoya / Writing retreat at Soulshine @soulshinebali in Ubud, Bali.

In many ways love can be scary, because it lifts us up. How do we stay grounded when we feel like we're floating? Sometime we have to lean in, hold on and trust that even if our feet seem like they can't touch the ground, if it's genuine, we are still very much grounded. Enjoy the ride 😉
Revered on the third day of the Navratri, Chandraghanta adorns a half moon in the shape of a bell, and her power stems from sound. It is said that between the battle of gods and demons, this Goddess sounded her bell and sent many demons to their deaths. Her fearlessness and fierce power evoke much admiration in her devotees. The color for today is green, and the offering is sago or tapioca. ⠀ ⠀ Click the link in our bio for a video about her with her mantra and a movement video to help you embody your own fearlessness and fierce power.⠀ ⠀⠀ #qoya #wisewildfree #movement #chandraghanta #navratri

~ So much more than yoga ~ ✨ ✨ My best friends and I, we meet every Friday morning for a yoga session. This is a total rouse. We meet because we love each other and want to do something to keep our stressed lives enjoyable, so we use the disguise of a yoga class but really it’s so much more than that. ✨ ✨ We stretch and resolve world peace. • We breathe and share what’s worrying us. • We Vinyasa and offer pearls of wisdom to one another. ✨ ✨ After 60 minutes of ‘yoga’ we’ve had world class counselling, therapy, life coaching and more than a dash of tears / belly laughs. ✨ ✨ Then we have a coffee. It’s the highlight of my week. ✨ ✨ If you want to start up a regular private yoga class with your best friends, I highly recommend it. There’s something sacred about gathering in this way. It’s not the same as meeting for a coffee. There is self care threaded through the chit chat and it nourishes on a whole other level. ✨ ✨ I also LOVE my new @milajandco leggings which are SO SOFT I never want to take them off! Thank you @quartzandstone I love you. I wish you could join this yoga sessions too. 💗

🇮🇹🇺🇸 Il cielo è il tuo unico limite. Cosa significa? Hai il permesso di desiderare tutto quello che vuoi. E prendertelo. Se vuoi più piacere nella tua vita non succede da solo, devi sbatterti per introdurlo e per abituare il tuo sistema nervoso a gioirne e darti il permesso di ricevere il piacere. . ❤️🔥. 🇺🇸 Sky is the limit. What does it mean? You have the permission to desire whatever you want. And then you go for it. If you want more pleasure in your life it won’t happen by itself. You have to make it happen. Your nervous system has to understand that it’s ok to receive pleasure. That’s why it starts from giving yourself the permission. ❤️🔥. #adventures #italiangoddess #femaleempowerment #divinefeminine #yoni #spirituality #sexmagic #sacredsex #sacredpleasure #selfcare #selflove #tantra #sensuality #wordporn #sacredwomb #feminineawakening #embodiment #womenswork #sensuality #selfmastery #lifegasm #bossmomlife #wisewildfree #lamiavita #qoya #mybodymytemple #womenempowerwomen #luna #moon 🇮🇹🇺🇸 Le nuvole nella mia vita sono sempre arrivate per una ragione e hanno lasciato il mio cielo anche più luminoso. . 🇺🇸 Clouds have always come for a reason and once they have left my skies are even brighter. ❤️🔥. #adventures #italiangoddess #femaleempowerment #divinefeminine #yoni #spirituality #sexmagic #sacredsex #sacredpleasure #selfcare #selflove #tantra #sensuality #wordporn #sacredwomb #feminineawakening #embodiment #womenswork #sensuality #selfmastery #lifegasm #bossmomlife #wisewildfree #lamiavita #qoya #mybodymytemple #womenempowerwomen #luna #moon
Beauty is not superfluous. Beauty heals, makes a way, concurs gratitude, shifts energy, breaks us and makes us. And this: “a balm to burnout.” Hallelujah! . . . . #yoga #proseandposes #yogaandwriting #beauty @thebroadplace 📷✍🏼
When women gather, magic happens. So so excited to be here in Donegal, on the land of my ancestors, with these qoyas, at this time in my life. #qoya #qoyalove #pilgrimage #rainbow #whenwomengathermagichappens

In any given day we can pass countless people, but how many people do we actually interact with? How many people do we genuinely connect with? We are all so much more connected than we realize. Put the phone down, look up. Look around. Connect.
