Our Story

Thrive Yoga offers you the opportunity to explore the many ways yoga can improve your fitness, relaxation and concentration through quality and fun instruction resulting in the transformation of self. Over the span of nearly 20 years, our mission is to expertly teach timeless yoga practices that are practical, proven and beneficial to you in life.
Thrive Yoga Founder, Susan Mondi Bowen opened Thrive Yoga in 2005 after the life changing event of 911, and the death of her sister. Having practiced yoga daily since the early 1990s Susan left her successful corporate career and opened Thrive. The studio was designed and built with reverence for the teachers of yoga that have come before. Thrive is a calming sanctuary with waterfalls, fountains, winding stone walkways for the community to practice yoga with highly experienced instructors in all the aspects of yoga-the deep and rich practices that are the science of a healthy life. Thrive is open today to greet students with nurturing care, guide students in the many practices of asana, pranayama, meditation and wellness programs that follow the yoga principles of being present and connected to your natural life force.
You will look forward to coming back and will find students who started practicing yoga from the very first day that we opened and new students who have just begun.
Thrive Yoga has offered more than 20,000 yoga classes, workshops, retreats and events to more than 100,000 clients and continues to be an innovator of combining ancient practices with the latest scientific research in wellness and fitness for its offerings. Thrive Yoga started its Teacher Training Programs in 2009 to train potential teachers and students like you, who seek to go deeper in the vast teachings of yoga. The Teacher Training faculty have more than 80 years of combined experience teaching yoga practices from dozens of lineages and methodologies and have graduated more than 650 yoga teachers who are teaching yoga all over the world.
Just like our metro-Washington, DC location, Thrive is a diverse community representing 145 countries, from teenagers to nearly 90 years old. You will thrive here.
