YOKE The Belly Blessing with The Fields
22 October, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$31.25
Life is the breath joining spirit and body.
To breathe it, we perform alchemy.
To create it, we are the divine.
This is the manifestation of Issa:
We have been creating and channelling our child by our dreams, our energy, our hearts. We felt we were ready to answer the calling of Her soul and realised that pure magic lies within our thoughts, within our intentions, within our seed. She now bathes in fluid love, She is nurtured by our happiness and grows towards our soon encounter.
Already, She is the richest being: strong with Qi, adorned by the Flower and filled with Breath, She is aware of the blessings coming to her and belongs to a vast family of people of truth, of love, of light.
We call you to celebrate our magic with us, to celebrate your own magic and to celebrate the breath you will one day forge into existence.
We call you to join the celebration of Issa’s journey by introducing yourself, by setting an intention, by sending a message of love.
We call you to touch the Belly of life and offer your Blessings. She will hear you!
Monica & Jan
Join dear friends and Yoke Tribe members Monica & Jan as we welcome New Life into their world! They have chosen to celebrate in true Yoke fashion – to get down and sweaty on the dancefloor. To shake up and shake loose our truths. To dance with the preciousness of birth and life within all of us. Birthing into being. We unite as a community, one tribe, to make this night as sacred as ever… All welcome – young and old!!
YOKE is a Melbourne based community fusing dance & self expression with live and electronic beats. The word YOKE is a Sanskrit term meaning ‘coming together’, forming union. Our workshops are about facilitating authentic connections to oneself and one other in a space completely free from judgments. We invite you to take the time to let go of the mind and drop into the body through ecstatic dance and movement. YOKE is a collaborative consciousness calling all individuals seeking to express intuitively and energize the soul.
Sanna Wittner is a movement facilitator, body worker and motivational up-lifter. Having danced from a small age, she has explored various styles of Hip Hop, Tap, Jazz, African, Funk, Electronic and Improvisational free flow. She has recently expanded her knowledge of the correlation between body and mind through a regular yoga meditation practice and ancient healing techniques. Her vision for Yoke was to create a safe space for like-minded bodies and souls to call home. One where each individual feels comfortable expressing themselves in their unique and wonderful ways. A place of acceptance and nurture, as well as a whole lot of fun and funkiness!
A general life lover and advocate of wholehearted living, Sanna is passionate about assisting others in realizing their own true potential and light. She is thankful for the opportunity to be a leader of today, and for the ongoing support received by the community in carrying out her soul’s purpose.
Sound by THE FIELDS
The Fields are a DJ duo currently based in Melbourne consisting of Andre Stahlhofen and Dajana Dedic. Andre originally comes from Berlin, Germany, where he was soaking up the energy of the electrifying nights and channeled it into his music during seven years of djing. This is where he met Dajana as well, and living there together, they shaped their own vision of sound based on deep melodies that connect with the souls of their listeners. Being in Australia now, they want to convey their point of view to Melbourne while connecting with new streams of music they absorb in this culture. An essential aspect of their musical journeys is to create a collective feeling on the dancefloor that expresses itself in shared harmonies and a deeper relationship with the present. So here’s to the pleasure of seeing happy faces, the passion of moving bodies and the birth of unforgettable memories.
This is an event for movers and shakers of all walks of life; no prior dance skills necessary. We welcome Yokers of all types in their many unique forms. Let’s go on this journey and celebration of life together.

The cost of this ticket covers the hard work and dedication on many parts that goes into the creation of each YOKE session. The exclusive sounds that have been carefully selected to tantalise your earholes, altering your consciousness into a state of transcendence. And the sacred space we are lucky enough to be using, including complementary chai/tea/snacks/elixirs before or after the dance to integrate and connect to this growing community. Any profit will be put towards expanding this conscious dance network in new and dynamic ways, so YOU can get more out of this collective journey. This is a collaborative movement that has evolved based on what the community want and need, so please if you have any ideas, suggestions or contributions I would love to hear from you. I am ever grateful for the constant support I have been receiving with this project. Please know that these are collective steps we are taking on the path to bringing oneness and peace to the world. ♥
See you on the d-floor!
Love Sanna and the YOKE crew
