CreACTive Wellness Center held its soft opening in February 2021, and they’ve already become an Alabaster favorite. According to CreACTive’s founder, Eileen Leslie, the building is in the oldest standing building in Alabaster.

The business began with a goal in January of 2020. After ending a beloved career and toxic relationship at the same time, she began a personal journey of healing. She received yoga training in India and got certified in yoga therapy by Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy.

After realizing how much these changes enriched her life, she wanted to bring everything that healed her to others—from yoga and creative arts to healthy eating and sweet treats. They’ve partnered with Insight Birmingham for group counseling as well. No matter what you need to find peace and joy, you can find it at CreACTive.

On Friday, May 7, CreACTive and Adventurer’s Coffee Co. celebrated their grand opening. Adventurer’s Coffee Co. has another location in Calera and roasts all of their own coffee.

“They (Adventurer’s Coffee Co.) have a passion for coffee. It’s not just a job for them. To be part of their expansion and their second location, how beautiful is that?”

Eileen Leslie, Owner, CreACTive Wellness Center

CreACTive Wellness Center is truly a place for everyone. There’s creative exploration through arts and crafts classes, along with fitness options such as yoga and meditation.

Plus, the possibilities are endless. Eileen hopes that musicians use the spot as a live music venue. Soon, there will even be a garden thanks to a member who loves gardening.

“We want to make sure everybody feels welcome. I don’t care about your age, gender, income level, color, sex, orientation; I care about love and I want a place where people can drop all the roles they play in life. They can just come and be.”
