About The Teacher

Mia has turned to dance throughout her life in different ways. As a child dance was her counselor, helping her to navigate growth of emotion and body awareness. She felt solace in dancing, closing her eyes, feeling freedom. In maidenhood dance was her passionate guide; taking her beyond walls of "knowing", following passions, experiencing healing. Dance and Mia were beacons of light or tapestries of deep emotion and adventure. After Mia's surrender to motherhood, her body serving new life, vital energies growing and sustaining children, mind and heart always occupied with the complexities of family; dance was a way to carve out some time for herself, smile uncontrollably, feel enlivened by music and choreography, get out of the head and into the moving body. Now, Mia has returned to herself through Qoya. The SELF that we all return too in pure spirit. She has found herself a pure vehicle of movement that integrates all of her stages in life. Contemplation, Healing, Joy, Playfulness, Sensuality, Sacredness....Qoya. She is excited for her continued journey through Qoya and looks forward to sharing it with you!

Teaching Qoya is a delightful way for me to return to the sacred through movement and to offer a place where women can come home to themselves, their own wisdom, sensuality and ecstatic nature.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
