In January, Acupuncturist Maura Dawgert – together with a team of holistic health practitioners and yoga and pilates instructors – opened Wild Hearts Wellness at 4230 N.E. Fremont St. in Beaumont Village.
“Wild Hearts is a wellness and community center,” said Dawgert. “We offer holistic health services, movement classes, workshops, and event space. Our health services include acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional counseling and massage, and our movement classes include pilates and various types of yoga. We are starting a monthly music series, a monthly free movie night, and hope to incorporate more community gathering events in the future.”
The Wild Hearts team includes acupuncturists Britanie Kessler and Aylee McFadden; nutritional counselor Alison DeLancey; massage therapists Amanda Corr, Syndee Fry, Krystal Meyer, Matt Worlock and Lena Traekenschuh; and yoga and pilates instructors Elizabeth Stafford, Sarah Rae Schmidt, Bryn Morgan, Marika McClenahan, Angie Fisher and Jess Sommers.
“At Wild Hearts, we believe holistic health incorporates not just the emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of an individual, but the community as a whole,” said Dawgert. “We are creating a space for people to gather, share their gifts and feel connected. We want everyone to walk out feeling like a superhero.”
Dawgert signed a lease for the second-floor property last fall and took two and a half months to renovate the space.
“I was attracted to the Beaumont area because it feels like a small town within itself,” said Dawgert. “So many neighbors have stopped by to introduce themselves or poke their heads in. I have to give a big shout out to Beaumont Hardware. They have been so incredibly helpful with the process. We’ve had a few meetings at Blackbird Wine and their snacks are amazing. My pup also loves Green Dog Pet Supply. Their nutritionist, Sarah Rae Schmidt, is one of our all-star yoga teachers.”
Wild Hearts has a welcoming event planned for Saturday, February 3 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
“We’re going to have free massage and acupuncture treatments and music and snacks,” said Dawgert. “We’ll also have an herbal spirits tasting with Thomas and Sons Distillery and a cider tasting with Woodbox Cider. Throughout the day, we’ll offer free yoga classes.”
