You are warmly invited to this autumnal series of healing and transformational Qoya classes in the New Forest, designed to help you enjoy a holistic rest and reset over six weeks, with each class tailored to rebalancing your chakra system, so you can feel amazing.
Week 3 is all about the solar plexus chakra, or Manipura. This chakra governs our energy, strength, purpose, identity and self-esteem. It's all too easy to be blocked here, especially for us women.
Using Qoya, guided meditation, sound healing and deep relaxation, we'll ease into flow to build our sacred inner fire, as we tune in to our own feminine power. We'll fire up and embrace our unique energy and we'll get clear and inspired on the actions we need and want to take. This will be a gorgeous, powerful workshop.
This is perfect for you if you're feeling stuck, low on energy, or lacking in personal power. It's also perfect if you want to grow in confidence and build your self-esteem, or if you have dreams you want to bring into reality.
Led by Emma Seymour, clinical hypnotherapist, transformational life coach and Qoya teacher, this unique series of workshops will revitalise, restore, and rejuvenate you.
Starting from the base and working our way up towards the crown, the series works through the seven classic chakras, week by week. Each session will be nurturing, therapeutic, inspiring and fun, leaving you with a wonderful sense of wellbeing.
Although the focus of each week will be on just one chakra (and two in the final week), you will be holistically rebalanced in every session. Although commitment to the whole course is encouraged, you are also very welcome to book individual sessions. Every weekly workshop will be a healing, empowering and uplifitng experience in its own right.
In each class, Emma will guide you to relax deeply while creating the positive changes and outcomes you desire, using a combination of guided meditation, goddess wisdom, chakra rebalancing, essential oils, sound, breath and mind-body techniques, including the wonderful Qoya, and deeply relaxing yoga nidra.
As a special and powerful bonus, you will receive a bespoke chakra rebalancing meditation audio recording for every session that you book.
Emma’s soothing voice and expertise in guided meditation, therapeutic techniques, chakra rebalancing, and of course the healing practice of Qoya will guide you to slow down to FEEL, dance to HEAL, and CONNECT to your own creative inspiration.
So, what is Qoya?
Emma says: “Qoya is a movement practice for women, rooted in the wisdom of yoga, the creative expression of dance, and the freedom of feminine movement. We slow down to feel, and we move to remember. The movement and dance are always about feeling good in your body, and never about what it looks like. You don’t need any experience, you were born to do this! Using both movement and stillness, we get out of our busy heads, and drop down into the peaceful wisdom of our bodies, so that you can feel and hear your truth. Through movement, we remember our essence as women, that in our essence we are wise, wild and free.”
You don't need any experience. There are no levels in Qoya and there’s no way to do it wrong. The only way you know it’s right is that it feels good, to YOU.

Disclaimer: Of course, Emma cannot make specific guarantees about how you’ll feel or how you’ll perceive the experience (that’s up to you, as that’s in YOUR zone of power), but she’s so confident that you’ll feel amazing in at least one area that if you honestly don’t feel a single benefit after the whole course, you can have your investment back!
Come as you are, and leave as more of who you truly are. These classes are all about feeling great in your own body as you reconnect to your self, your truth, and your joy, awakening the power of your own inner goddess.
This is the perfect way to ease yourself into autumn and winter, letting go of all that no longer serves you, shedding layers, making yourself ready for the darker seasons and focusing on that which lights you up.
This series of gentle yet transformational classes will help you unwind from stress, make space and time to dream, and to reset your body, mind, goals (and whole life if you feel the need).
Gifting yourself (and/or a loved one) this opportunity to heal and rebalance the mind, body and soul will mean setting yourself up for the best autumn and winter ever. It’s time to celebrate this half of the year, enjoy the nourishing, cosy, healing and rejuvenating aspects of the darker months.
This is a deeply feminine and powerful time of year. Autumn is the perfect time to heal the past and let go of anything that’s no longer serving you (and there’s ALWAYS something).
Emma offers you a safe space in which to feel ALL the feels, because this is how we heal. She is an experienced trauma therapist and healer, so you’ll be in safe hands.
These workshops will be gentle, relaxing and fun, yet with the power to be deeply healing and transformative.
It’s the perfect time to heal those old wounds, let go of old stories that no longer serve you, to break the habits and patterns that have been holding you back, to make way for all the wonderful new things you would like to invite in. It’s the perfect time to focus on reviewing and rebalancing your vitality, career, relationships and mindset.
At The Retreat New Forest, you’ll find the perfect space, time and opportunity to focus on what really matters to YOU. Nurtured by a circle of supportive women and nourished by the beautiful natural surroundings, you’ll be inspired and empowered to create a better relationship with yourself and your body, and to gain clarity around your own brighter future.

What is a chakra? How do I know if my chakras need rebalancing?
The word ‘chakra’ is Sanskrit, and it means wheel, or vortex. The chakras form an elegant system for understanding our bodies, minds, souls and subtle energy. They offer us an excellent way of assessing and healing our mind-body interactions. Most people would benefit from chakra rebalancing at any given time. It’s likely that at least one could do with fine tuning! The chakra system is very helpful for reviewing all aspects of our life and being, so that we can have a better understanding of where we are, where we’ve come from, where we’d like to be and what we can do in order to achieve our desires and goals.
I'm new to Qoya, can I find out more?
Yes. Qoya is a movement system based on yoga, meditation, dance and embodied feminine movement. It was created in 2009 by Rochelle Schieck to help us remember that our essence as women is wise, wild and free. Find out more here.
