Carrie Eller

Owner
Jack of All Jobs

Herbalist
Aromatherapist

A lifetime of study 
culminated in the 
opening of 
Under The 
Elder Tree.

I love my shop.  To be here 

is Bliss! 

While I enjoy helping those who walk through the door,  the other ladies in the shop tell me I come alive when I'm alone blending and creating new Teas and oil concoctions.  Apparently I'm like the Swedish Chef on the Muppets when I'm busy mixing!


Finding creative ways to help others is where 

I shine!


What can I help you with today?



Beth Moore

Senior
Shop Assistant

Herbalist

Beth's love of nature and what it can provide has
driven her nearly 
30 years of 
self education, 
wild crafting and organic gardening.
  
This, coupled with her training in the medical field, and being Dr Mom to 3 children,  has prepared Beth to be a great addition to the team at 
Under The Elder Tree.

Beth is a patient & animated soul.  
She is a whirlwind of ideas and follows through with  hustling to make things happen.
She also recently began hosting herbal foraging walks at the shop!

The stars aligned when she walked in my door and she has quickly ingrained herself as my  indispensable Right Hand Wench.

their uses.

Metaphysical.  Her passion is palpable and she spreads it like confetti around the Shop!

Samara Eller

Jr Junior 
Shop Assistant
Samara is exuberantly following in her mother's footsteps of becoming a future Herbalist and Healer.  

Her favorite 
part of working in the shop is watering the plants.  She loves discovering all the little fairies lurking among the foliage.

She bounces around the shop being a helper, and has recently discovered the joy to be gained from swiping credit cards. 

Outside of the shop, she loves doodling, playing with her baby kitties, and swimming whenever the time will allow. 


Maddox Eller

Basement Dweller
Maddox is 
rarely seen.  
He prefers to skulk in the basement where he can kick- butt on his X-box 
in private.  
You may randomly catch a glimpse of him when he  emerges into the light of day to raid the cash register to feed the 
insatiable hunger that only a 13 year old teenage boy can have.  

Outside of the shop, he is a wildman of the woods who can "McGuyver" all sorts of scary and impressive tools.  
He has a soft spot for animals and sneaks many into the house to place in one of his many tanks full of Lizards, crickets, worms, Toads, Fish & a Turtle. 
Oh and the random Duck.

Jessi Byrne

Yoga Instructor
Meditation Guide

Jessi is a certified Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance approved 200 hour certification led by Jennifer Yarrow and Jennilee Toner in Costa Rica in 2015.
Her focus is on proper alignment, safety, & hands on assists.
She is currently working on her 300YTT certification with Frog Lotus, and now Thai Massage Certified through the Triple Gem School of Thai Massage.

Jessi first came to know Yoga in 2007 for an "easy" college credit.
Even though she had been previously interested in Yoga, she had no idea the depth and the beauty which lies within the practice.
Having always been active; a dedicated trained dancer for nearly 20 years, an Equestrian rider & trainer for 25 years, along with various recreational sports, there always comes injury.
Finding many fitness practices left her misaligned and nursing strained muscles and joints, Yoga was the only practice she walked away from feeling whole.
Diving into the world of Yoga, Jessi found that it not only supported her body, but her mind and spirituality as well.  
Now she desires to spread the knowledge, the physical healing, and the depth of spirit with those who are curious and come with an open heart and mind.
Jessi's recently moved away, 
but as her family is here, she will be teaching classes whenever she's in for a visit.  


Cathy Downing

Yoga Instructor

I was introduced to yoga well over 12 years ago as a way to combat sore muscles & joint dysfunction created by lifting heavy weights in the gym.  
A dedicated, deeper practice developed after yoga was integrated with physical therapy for me 
to better recover from knee surgery. 
I had a heart felt calling to share the benefits and practice of yoga with others so I completed a 
200 hr. YogaWorks certified teacher training. 
I became a Yoga Alliance RYT two years 
after the knee surgery.  
Yoga has become part of my lifestyle, but I also enjoy time my grown daughters, spoiling my cats and grand-fur babies, collecting tattoos, working on my miniature dollhouse, and yes, still lifting heavy things.  
My day is not complete without chocolate and coffee. 


Pamela June

Yoga Instructor


I started practicing yoga ten years ago 

as a way to reduce stress. 

I loved that yoga helped to quiet the mind, and I was amazed to learn what it could do for my body, too! 


Since then, I have learned that yoga helps provide the fullest experience of ourselves. 

It builds strength, balance, and flexibility in more ways than one, putting us in touch with our movements and thoughts and empowering us to become the best version of ourselves.


Outside of yoga, I am a full-time 

English professor and cat lover. 


I moved to Wheeling five years ago, 

and I have grown fond of the city's walking trails, the small businesses, and the many festivals. 


I also volunteer at the local homeless coalition. 


I have truly grown to love life, and I can’t wait to share this passion with others through yoga.

Nancy Shutler

Tai Chi Instructor

Nancy  has practiced Tai Chi for 29 years 
and is an experienced teacher of 16 years. 
 She is certified by the Tai Chi for Health Institute. 

 Scientific studies have shown Tai Chi to 
improve health, balance, and quality of life. 
Regular Tai Chi practice improves balance, coordination and flexibility; it strengthens muscles and bones, 
improves circulation to internal organs and calms the mind and nervous system. 
 Tai Chi's flowing movements open the energy meridians of the body, eliminating blockages and allowing the free flow of chi (vital life energy) throughout the systems. 
 To learn Tai Chi, one practices a series of postures and movements that are performed slowly and continuously. Moving slowly allows the mind to become deeply concentrated on the precise movements. Thus, Tai Chi has a calming and centering effect, much like the effect brought about by meditation. 

 Tai Chi has 
been called "Meditation in Motion" 


Michelle Blake

Yoga Instructor

“Yoga is the journey of the self through the self to the self’

 

That truly is what yoga is to me and what inspired me to begin teaching.  I am a 200hr certified yoga teacher with a passion for Vinyasa and Power flow. Yoga became a part of my life 16 years ago when my first son was born and I needed to bounce back. I immediately fell in love, my body responded so naturally to yoga but it wasn’t until recently when I dove into teacher training that my true passion was ignited.  My sadhana, or daily devotional practice, began and through this shift from occasional yogi to devoted yogi I was able to learn to live my true self.

 

 Yoga keeps me centered throughout my crazy schedule that includes raising 3 boys and formulating/crafting organic body care products for my small business.

 

 I love where yoga takes me and I love sharing it with others.
