Moon Meadows Farm
“We all shine on…like the moon and the stars and the sun…we all shine on…come on and on and on…”
Retreat with Susan Mondi Bowen & the Thrive Community to Moon Meadows Farm Yoga & Healing Center. This oasis of peace and natural beauty is located on a sprawling 36-acre organic farm surrounded by the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Join us to relax, practice yoga & meditation, and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals in the comfort of nature with fellow yogis and new friends.
Deepen your practice with six yoga, meditation, and specialty practices*:
Easily slide into savasana, and Susan Mondi Bowen, a Certified Sound Therapist, will create a nurturing and deeply relaxing session with a sound immersion including gongs, tuning forks, bells, ocean drum, handmade Nepalese singing bowls, and seven chakra crystal bowls. Sound baths will help ease symptoms of many conditions, including chronic pain, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. With intention and an elevated vibration, you will leave refreshed and vibrant.
This beginner’s Pranayama practice will include full instruction and moderation. Breathing patterns will be explored and breathing sequences will include taking deep breaths (inhale and exhale) with short breath retention.
Cleansing meditation to wash out hidden emotions stuck in the body and open to higher states of consciousness. A guided rhythmic breathing pattern, followed by a concentrated and focused meditation on each chakra. Modified for all levels of practice, Ananda Mandala invites deep energetic releases from the body & energetic pathways and it generates bliss.
In the unexpected case that travel becomes restricted forcing Thrive to reschedule the retreat, we will offer a transfer of those dollars to the rescheduled retreat or a refund less $350 Thrive concierge/administration fee.
