"The Dance Alchemy workshop is wonderful and Nicole is a fantastic facilitator! She created a space and provided guidance that allowed me to go deep within myself and then connect with the other participants at a deep soul level. I left on a high and never fully came down. Now whether on the dance floor or in a public place or even an intimate setting, I have increased my ability to gracefully connect with other people. Thank you 🙏"

"I attended Nicole’s Dance Alchemy workshop on my birthday. Nicole is a gifted shaman. Her intuitive guidance led the group through a series of experiences and movement that connected me deeply to myself, my environment and the people around me. More deeply than anything I’d done in years. Best of all, it was intimate, playful and fun. I’ll make a point of attending anything she leads whenever I’m in Bali."

"I had the absolute privilege of experiencing Nicole Yau's "The Alchemy of Dance and Connection" in an amazing high-vibe, serene, scared and safe-circle hide-out in Ubud, Bali.
From this session, I realized and was awaken to knowing that our sacred container is the dance floor, it is both a mirror and an ecosystem. A place where we can safely be a witness and be with our all of who we are. A place where we can choose to lean into and move with our pain, our fears, our doubts, our love, our joy, our bliss and our SENSUALITY. A place where the abandoned, rejected, broken and forgotten pieces of ourselves are accepted, welcome, and claimed back into the whole."

"Contact Beyond Contact' & circle work in the way Nicole Yau offers this, was profoundly true to this name, in my first experience of it.I perceived the bridging of separation in existence of individuation yet group mind-body as a collective planet. Significantly for me, was the bridging of this physical plane with metaphysical energy I've visited out "there" that I've since pined for, for many years. I've yearned to return to "there", "contact beyond contact" in limited ways I'd experienced. I got to see these as "here" in full expression as all of Earth, all within its field & every aspect of existence. How awesome is that for a first session?! Nicole Yau, brings a potent combination of masterful facilitation, skilful blending & inclusion of various modality specialities, presence, sensitivity, flow, and in a space with nature present in its beauty & communication. This has become one of my top dance experiences ever, in addition to those of inner dance, of which she is also a facilitator. In my 30 years of dance including 5 rhythms, festivals, ecstatic & contact, this rocks!! I'm hugely grateful and can't recommend this enough".

"Thank you so much dear sister. The woman temple made me feel so peaceful on a deep level and grounded. I had a good night of sleep last night. I’m so grateful that I am part of this experience".

"Thank you Nicole. I wouldn’t have realised some of the things I did to myself without being in your workshop. Things that shocked me and made me realise that what I was doing, thought & believes that didn't serve me. I have been cracked open like a volcano I expelled, but bit by bit I am building myself again, I still go back to the old believes but at least I recognise it and consciously try to shift it. Please never give up in doing what you are doing, it is so good. The world can only be a better place when people can connect in such a way. Big kisses and hugs, I can’t wait to see you again!"

"The way in which Nicole transmutes the true essence of dance and the beauty in the silence of the Soul's language I have never before witnessed in such a held space. Her embodied presence allows for the true sacredness of this art form to be expressed, whereby both the internal and external world are merged with a delicate tenderness and poignancy that feels safe in the container in which she holds. The intimate connectedness of the One Being in which we all emanate from is leaned into in such a beautiful way that it allows, gently, for the direct recognition of Source itself to be seen within the reflected other; the exquisite dance of life itself truly felt through the experiences she creates".
