The Women's Community Wellness Center, located in the Stratfield section of Fairfield is here to serve the women in our communities through every cycle of life.
We strive to support those who choose to live a healthy and fulfilling life, knowing that wellness is more than being free from illness, but it is a process of change and growth towards a mentally and physically healthy lifestyle.
Whether you're seeking ways to support an alcohol free lifestyle, to address your mental health holistically, or gather and learn with other women in your community, you will find great support at the wellness center!
We care about sisterhood, meaningful living, movement, self care, healthy eating, and fostering creativity, so you can live your life fully with passion and purpose. We specialize in supporting the recovery and mental health needs of women, but serve as a community wellness hub for any woman who is seeking wellness.
We offer special workshops, regular classes in therapeutic yoga, bellydance, meditation, nutrition, women's circles, Red Tent gatherings, and more.
The WCWC is also the home office of nurse practitioner and sober coach, Joy Herbst.

Yoga of Recovery (YoR) integrates the wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the modern recovery ideas and the tools of 12-Step Recovery. It is open to all who are looking to overcome self-destructive or addictive tendencies.
Classes incorporate Hatha yoga asanas (suitable for all levels) along with Pranayama (breathing exercises) and conscious relaxation. All this helps to develop not only the body, but also to broaden the mental faculties and spiritual capacities. Yoga exercises improve the health of the spine and aid the proper function of the internal organs. They also work on the nervous system and the endocrine system (glands and hormones) therefore restoring health and balance to the entire system.
Local classes will resume later this Spring with Joy at the new Women's Community Wellness Center in Fairfield.
Durga Leela, the creator of Yoga of Recovery, also offers YOR retreats in CA, VA, Bahamas, Vietnam.
