YOKE Reset & Connect with The Honey Temple
18 August, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm$31.25
It’s time to reset.
It’s time to connect in to yourself, and also with the open hearted community we are co-creating as part of what YOKE is all about.
Join us before the dance for some delicious warming chai made by Ben’s dad. Where you will have the opportunity to take some time to drop in and connect with fellow community members.
We enter the dance space at 6.30 for a 2 hour dance journey/sound healing facilitated by Ben Temple Step & Madhu Henry, who have just returned from some years living in Bali and are feeling the cold! Let’s help them integrate within the community as they help us to warm each others souls.
Post-dance we will share a light meal (by donation), and connect some more!
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. 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.
Sanna Olive 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.

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 funds 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 we would love to hear from you. We are ever grateful for the constant support. Please realise that these are collective steps we are taking on the path to bringing a deeper understanding of our connectedness to each other and planet earth. ♥
See you on the d-floor!
Love the YOKE crew
