Welcome!

Group Breathwork – December 19th

Join Amy and Lacey for bi-weekly group Breathwork classes every-other Wednesday from 7-8:30pm at Imbue Yoga. Breathwork is an active meditation that helps release old wounds, shed limiting beliefs, connect to your intuition, and allow intentions to integrate into the physical and energetic bodies.  It’s like an emotional scrub brush for the body! Through this release, Breathwork creates space for new energy and ideas to grow and thrive. 

There’s significant power in coming together in a sacred container to breathe and open our hearts together as a group. This group dynamic allows you to care for yourself while you care for your community through group healing.

These 90-min events will be split into three parts: time to reflect on the current astrology and how it’s showing up in our lives, time to lay down and breathe together, and time after the breathing to share and witness.

No previous Breathwork experience necessary. Wear comfy clothes and bring an eye covering if you want.

About Amy: Amy is an acupuncturist, Breathwork facilitator, tarot reader, podcaster, and wellness coach for mind, body, and business. Her work is focused on helping female-identified and non-binary business owners heal what needs healing – whether that’s their anxiety and limiting beliefs one day or their business model the next. She trained in Breathwork with both Erin Telford and David Elliott and has been holding space for healing through the breath since 2017.

Candlelight Restorative Aerial Yoga Workshop – Thursday, Jan 3rd 7-8:30pm 

$30  til 12/31 – $35

Register here

Join us for our last Aerial Yoga offering!   No previous experience necessary.  Rejuvenate with gentle, restorative postures incorporating the aerial silk.  Heart opening backbends,  relaxing inversions,  and a long savasana in a hammock.  Only 6 spaces available,  pre-registration for this weekly offering is recommended!

In this class we use an aerial hammock to practice Unnata® Aerial Yoga. Unnata® is sanskrit for ‘Elevated’, because we use the aerial hammock to access a deeper awareness of each posture, find support to strengthen our poses, and of course invert in the silks. The fabric hammock is a prop intended to assist with muscle and fascia release, strengthening, and body alignment. There is a natural playfulness to aerial yoga, and fun is encouraged.
 

*If you have a spinal condition, injury, or medical issues that prevent you from inverting (glaucoma, heart condition, etc) or backbending, or are pregnant, please obtain your doctor’s permission.

Complete by learning a mantra for the Great Heart (15 mins), to link our life force with our hearts, with the truth, and with unending bliss.

This was a very comprehensive training. I feel like I have been given a great skillset.” – Firefly Training Participant

The group participation and bonding helped to create a very safe space when learning about trauma. The sense of community helped me to swallow, digest and metabolize the material. Also, the use of videos, practicing, guest speakers, and expressive arts was great!”
