YOKE Ignite with Kodiak Kid
7 January, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$31.25
Prepare to Ignite the flame of your New Year game…
We have KODIAK KID in da YOKE house ready to take you on a full power embodiment journey into the heart and soul of this next chapter. This collective evolution of soul tribe. Re-planting our feet on this earth and reclaiming ourselves as whole.
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.

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!
