Join us for the first evening of our three part series, In the Company of Women, exploring western herbalism and yoga.

In The Company of Women: Fertility

Women have been serving in their communities as caregivers, wildcrafters and healers, passing down plant wisdom and intuitive knowledge for centuries. Join Yoga Teacher and Doula, Jaclyn Gallo of The Wrens Nest, along with Mischa Schuler, Clinical Herbalist of Wild Carrot Herbs for an evening of supportive movement, education, and herbs.

In this first of our three part series, we will focus our discussion on herbs that support and nurture the female body, especially the womb, our creative center. Ideal for those hoping to conceive, looking to attain optimalhealth, or individuals such as doulas and midwives who support women in their daily work.

The experience will consist of 30 minutes of gentle restorative poses chosen to ground and support you in your cycle or on your fertility journey. You will be invited to set an intention for your evening which we will encourage you to carry with you through your practice and during the creation of your custom tea blend.

We will then come together, share a cup of tea, and Mischa will introduce the six herbs of the evening. As you learn about these herbs to gently support your fertility, the plants will be present for you to touch, smell, and experience. You will then have the opportunity to create your personal herbal tea blend by choosing the herbs that resonate with you, that speak to your movement practice and your intention. Mischa will be available if you have any questions.

You will leave class with a short movement sequence which you will be able to practice at home, a custom herbal blend to last you for several weeks, and a deeper understanding of how both tools can be used to support you.

We will hold space for 8 people.
