YOKE Illumination with Caly Jandro
21 January, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$26.25
Next up we have talented Beat & Path / The Boogie Beats Collective artistCaly Jandro joining us for an Illumination dance-floor session! In the midst of this busy summer season, the full moon energy is all around us. Make the most of these sunny days spent with soul tribe and community…
The YOKE events are a powerful way to make new connections to oneself and one another, guided by the rhythmic beats of our talented artists and the energy cultivated collectively by us all.
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.
At YOKE we believe in oneness at the core of all existence. With the help of our resident DJs and musicians, who play a mixture of down tempo, deep house, techno, world and live sound healing, we will take you on a two-hour journey releasing the mind and opening the heart. From the moment you enter the space, your senses will be tantalized and you energy fields cleansed with the sacred scents of Frankincense, Sage and Palo Santo. We begin the journey with a tea brew made of carefully selected herbs to guide our journey in line with the particular theme and music. Prepare to enter a trance as together yet individually we flow from slinky stretching to high energy, ecstatic dancing. Always guided by your own body’s wisdom, the sacred space and music become a backing track to the deeper lessons that lie within ourselves when we truly let go. The night concludes with a grounding meditation and group sharing over some handcrafted organic dance-digestifs.
About the facilitator…
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 CALY JANDRO
Caly’s Vibe is distinctive. Throughout all of his musical styles, his blend of Organic World Sounds and Stimulating Electronic Elements is what ties his sound together. Coming from a musical background, his love for all instrumentation is apparent, and he always finds a way to blend these styles together. Often, Caly’s primary directive is to take you on a journey from one place to another, and delve into the deep connections between himself and others through music.
In 2017, Caly was signed to new Australia & NZ label Beat & Path, his November 2017 Release ‘Rokia’ featuring Highway Beauty, Uone & Out of Sorts reaching number 3 in the Beatport Deephouse Releases Charts. Although music is his primary passion, Caly is not just a DJ. Over the last few years, he has played a strong role in the development of Melbourne’s Underground Scene, most notably with his role as a Co-Founder of The Boogie Beats Collective with new projects on the rise this year. His passion for music and people have led him to achieve many things so far, and he is most certainly one to watch over the years to come.

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. A large portion of the profit is 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
