Dukkha Happens – Sunday, Oct 7 4-6pm
“Dukkha” is a term that basically means “suffering.” We’ll get real with what is suffering and how we can manage it in our lives in a way that incorporates peace instead of chaos. This workshop will include practices (movement, meditation, activities) as well as presentation to guide you on a path of embracing dukkha. As always with OMC events, Mindfulness will be the backbone of our approach.
Plant Based Yoga, Vegan Potluck, Screening of THE LAST PIG — Friday, October 12th – 6pm
You are invited to a delicious and soul-full donation yoga class & potluck every 2nd Friday of the month!
6-6:45 All levels yin / slow flow yoga and meditation class
6:45-7:30 Vegan potluck! Bring a dish to share, plate, beverage vessel & utensils if you have them (Imbue has some as well). Hosted by Shawna Weaver of Ethical Choices Program who will offer a brief talk during our meal.
7:30-8:30 Screening of the Last Pig
Compassionate beings unite (all are welcome – being vegan is NOT a requirement)! In this class we will explore a lighthearted, energetic flowing practice to stretch out, find balance and build community. We will begin our practice with a common intention: to reduce suffering in all beings and increase compassion. After our physical practice we will do a powerful, compassionate, heart-centered meditation technique to send healing and goodwill to ourselves, our neighbors, our world and possibly even to our enemies. After class we’ll share in plant-based refreshments (both provided by Imbue Yoga and potluck style if you want to bring something to share). Proceeds of each of these monthly potlucks & classes are to be donated to animal rights / protection / sanctuary or other compassionate organization.
At the Ethical Choices Program we believe that maitri (friendliness, care) and karuna (compassion) should be extended to all beings and that all beings experience sukha (comfort) and mudita (joy). In the spirit of sharing information on ways to manifest a world full of compassion, kindness and joy for all beings, we offer presentations which center on the realities of our food choices and how modern agriculture is affecting our health, the environment and animals.
Our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization has presented to yoga studios and other venues throughout the country. Those who have invited us to present find our subject matter is highly compatible with the central tenets of yoga, especially the practice of ahimsa, which is of primary importance in the Eight Limbs of yoga.
The Ethical Choices Program provides the information and motivation to make a real difference in the world. Our program is an excellent way to motivate others to work towards sustainable living, healthier bodies and a more compassionate society. By helping others understand the realities behind their food choices, everyone can make informed, responsible and compassionate decisions for themselves.
THE LAST PIG is a lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Deeply immersive, the film follows a pig farmer through his final year of slaughtering pigs. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals the growing conflict of a life spent “peddling in death.”

Upekkha, You Betcha Sunday, Oct 21 4-6pm
“Upekkha” is a term that means “equanimity.” In this workshop, we’ll use Mindfulness approaches to cultivate Equanimity, the ability to stay calm regardless of the stress or chaos around us. This allows us to respond in wise ways according to our values, instead of reactively make things worse.
Bi-weekly Group Breathwork – Begins Oct 24th:
- First class will be Wed Oct 24th, 7-8:30pm with future classes following an every other week schedule.
- Ticket price is $25 – Limited to 15 Participants
- Purchase tickets at https://amykuretsky.as.me/breathwork-at-imbueyoga
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.

“Into the Soul”: A Five Elements Yoga Flow, A Cacao Ceremony, & Sacred Drumming – Saturday, Nov 3rd – 3-5pm
$60 Earlybird until 10/14, $65 Regular
Explore the fusion of the ancient internal practices of Yoga and Shamanism. Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom. We begin the class with a cup of Sacred Cacao to connect us to Spirit and to help expand our Heart Chakra (30 min). We then use the ancient teachings of Nature’s Five Elements for this intense and transformational yoga practice (90 min). Our experience will be deepened by the constant thread of Sacred Sounds performed live.
Guided by the cycles of the Five Elements, we will embody the energies of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. As we become each of these elements through yoga asana, we will learn valuable lessons that will empower us to reveal our passions, to shift perceptions, and to dream our world into being. You will leave the practice feeling spiritually cleansed, emotionally empowered, and expansive….ready to live life the life that wants to live in you! Now is the time to reveal yourself to yourself. As the Hopi Elders stated: “We are the ones that we’ve been waiting for.”

Mindfulness can be described as studying our mind. In this workshop we’ll look at how our thoughts and perceptions shape our experiences in life, including our sense of self/identity.
