Want to boost workplace wellbeing and encourage team bonding in Perth? Yoke Mardewi of Wild Sourdough will work with you to organise a private group class or team building or personal development corporate class – either at your venue/event or hers.

In this hands-on class, Yoke Mardewi will take you into a delightful and delicious journey with sourdough while you will also learn simple mindfulness techniques you can take anywhere with you to quickly snap you out of your stress.

In the wake of a challenging year, many of us have become even more anxious, disconnected or unsettled than we might have been in the past. Thankfully, as we have come to know, meditation and mindfulness are effective ways to reduce such states of distress and anxiety---but it is not easy to get into this practice.

This is where sourdough comes in: the simple process of mixing flour and water and getting your hands into the dough to knead is the easy way to ground yourself in the present moment, to lose yourself in the process. Sourdough bread making is an experience that it involves the use of all your senses. To use your eyes, your hands, your heart, and your mind. Sourdough, when made well, is about being in the moment.

Creating bread is a gentle yet powerful form of mindfulness. And this is what we would like to introduce you to, above all, in the few hours we share together. The delicious healthy, highly digestible and nutrient-dense bread is the bonus.

Following successful careers in Fashion and Finance, Yoke Mardewi took the plunge and decided to work at her first love and passion – the making and sharing of food and in particular, sourdough bread-making.

Yoke runs cooking classes with a specialty in sourdough bread-making. She has written the book ‘Wild Sourdough,’ featured on Western Australian TV, radio and in various food and health websites, newspapers and magazines.

Yoke was also a TedTalk speaker in 2019 running a segment 'Ground Yourself with Sourdough' which touched on the slow, purposeful process of making sourdough and served as a reminder to notice what gives us simple joy - and why everyone needs to find their 'sourdough'.

Her cooking classes are as much about sharing her warmth and passion for life as they are about the joy of food.

Yoke is a member of the Artisan Bakers Association and Slow Food, and is a keen supporter of organic/bio-dynamic farming.

She supports and encourages others to have the courage to pursue their passion in life.
