The YOKE Temple ft. Nuage
26 October, 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm$31.25
How often do we find ourselves searching for that place we we can truly be? A place where we feel safe to let go, release and express ourselves beyond limitation? A Sacred space where music and rhythms merge, you close your eyes and fall into a deep trance. Where movement becomes your meditation, and dance your prayer.
‘What if our religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the Temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water—the rivers, lakes and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being’
Enter the YOKE Temple…
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.
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.
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.
Arrive at 5.45pm for a 6pm start. It is important we all start the journey together so please allow time to settle in before we begin. The dance will end at 8pm.

Tickets are limited to the capacity of the studio space. We suggest booking online beforehand.
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. 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
