Bi-weekly Group Breathwork – November 21st

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.

“If intimacy intrigues you and makes you into a skittish peeping tom,  then be sure to catch Bue at her next performance.” – Alan Sparhawk,  Low

Mary Bue is an indie musician and yoga studio owner based in Minneapolis.  A prolific songwriter with 7 albums under her belt,  Mary’s music touches upon archetypal themes of the human condition:  love, loss,  triumph,  dreams,  and the natural world.  A longtime student of yoga and psychology since her early teens,  Mary weaves sacred subject matter into her songs with inquiries into the spirit,  the seeking of deeper levels of consciousness,  and deep concern for the environment all mixed into her sometimes crass, real-world hue.   For the early half of 2017 Mary was an Artist in Residence at the Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, NM – spending time creating in solitude,  along the Rio Grande river gorge and Sangre de Cristo mountains.  She released her 7th project The Majesty of Beasts in May 2017 which landed on 2017’s Best of Minnesota Music lists for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and #3 in the City Pages.  Mary’s long-time support of PAVSA (Program for Aid to Victims of Sexual Assault) as well as the release of this EP was also recognized in November, honoring Mary with 2017 Community Ally of the Year.

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!”
