A Somatic Movement Practice

Qoya is a movement practice that encourages women to focus less on what their movement looks like and instead focus on how it feels. Qoya classes are based on the idea that through movement, we remember. We remember our essence as wise, wild and free.

The practise will be guided Tawny Sterios a mother, a yoga teacher, yoga teacher trainer, a Qoya dancer, a labour and postpartum doula, a circle and retreat guide and nature enthusiast. Tawny has been sitting in circle with women for the past 15 years, where women hold sacred space for the unfolding of life and the quiet inner knowing that bond us.

What our Kindred community is saying

I loved every minute of my 200 hr Yoga teacher training at Kindred studio in Nelson. The programme content is varied and comprehensive. Chai's depth of knowledge, insight and congruent engagement allowed for a deep connection to learning the 8 limbs of yoga,  the asanas, anatomy, and Myself. It is easy to be inspired by Chai's enthusiasm. The day to day running of the course was friendly, informative and well structured. We were given a chance to develop beautiful friendships with the other attendees, and watching each other's journey has been inspiring and wonderful.

I have found the post-training support to be invaluable to my continued journey. For me, the course was not the end or completion of a dream - it was the beginning of it, and I'm grateful for the follow on presence that Chai and the other teachers continue to offer. Kindred does more than teach yoga. It is a place where knowledge, friendship, and support come together to build a beautiful community, with acceptance, encouragement, and knowledge sharing at its centre.
I would highly recommend the course to anyone wondering about their Yoga Teacher training.

Chai is an inspiring and dedicated yoga teacher. He has an amazing knowledge of anatomy and how each person can relate to yoga. He manages to motivate and entertain and his classes are full of laughter. As well as laughter and knowledge he has amazing energy and is able to induce a sense of calm and relaxation that leaves you floating away from a yoga class. One of the best yoga teachers that I have ever met in over 10 years of practice.

When I’m asked about Chai’s teaching, the words that come to mind are knowledge, depth of experience, and integrity.

Chai is known and respected throughout the yoga community and he is a founding board member of Yoga New Zealand where he continues to support and promote the professional development and integrity of yoga in New Zealand – he walks the talk. He has a phenomenal knowledge of functional anatomy and is constantly increasing and sharing this in classes and on the teacher training courses.  Chai has the canny ability to make anatomy understandable and interesting.

Having undertaken my Level 1 teacher training at Kindred, then worked alongside Chaitanya in the studio and on subsequent Level 1 teacher training, Chai holds the space with strength and compassion as trainees navigate the path to completion.  I have grown as a teacher and human being during that time under the guidance of Chaitanya. Being part of the Kindred family has been life-changing!
