Tonantzin Chocolate Fundraiser
At YOKE we value immensely the power of community, and wish to support others on their quest to rising up and moving toward creating a better future for all. Our friends at Tonantzin – Aztec Artisan Chocolate need our help in moving towards this shared vision. In February they will be expanding and moving their humble chocolate business out of their family home into a community work space at Yarra Valley Ecoss. Here their chocolate and projects stemming from the beautiful plant who so eloquently weaves us all together, will be able to better thrive and reach more people, not just for taste but for action to change. This is why we are holding this dance in dedication to them and all they give, let’s support and give back to a thriving community. Proceeds from tickets will go towards the startup of their new kitchen space.
About the YOKE Movement
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 conscious dance, movement and meditation. 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. Always guided by your own body’s wisdom, the sacred space and music provided become a backing track to the deeper lessons that lie within ourselves when we truly let go.
Sound by NUAGE
The Nuage project is to inspire a rhythm of expression through the music. Designed specifically for the YOKE community, Nuage creates energetic waves and impulses through intelligent mixing and merging of genres, from downtempo to upbeat, internal to external. The music is carefully selected to engage all parts of the body in a dynamic free flow where dancer and musician co-create and unify the sounds through expression.
The mixing allows space for the creation of the dancer to unfold. His intention is for you to create your own story through the movement exploring the theme of the night, guided by the music. His eclectic collection of songs weave together to create an electric journey offering multiple directions for the mover.
Sanna 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.
