Autumn Equinox 
at Moon Rising, NC

Join Sacred Fire Co-Owners Stephie Germann and Annelise K in the North Carolina Mountains to honor the changing of season with a immersion into Ayruveda and Chinese Medicine Theory through vinyasa, restorative and yin practices....all while creating a closer, deeper community!


Nature holds tremendous wisdom and the seasonal shift from Summer to Fall feels particularly telling. After the bustle of summer... we invite you to slow down and take in the beauty of the North Carolina mountains with us as for a special 4-day micro-retreat built around a grounding, self-nurturing call to action.


This retreat is lead by Annelise & Stephie, co-owners of Sacred Fire.  Each leads their classes with a unique lense guided.  This weekend is intended to inspire presence, poise, serenity and - we hope - compel you to slow down and take in the beauty as nature transitions into the depths of fall.

What will my weekend look like?

We believe yoga retreats shouldn't take themselves too seriously - after all yoga is about balance and aligning our many sides as human beings.  Each morning will start with an active practice led by Stephie Germann and guided by the science of Ayurveda, curated for Fall.  

After breakfast enjoy a nourishing brunch, followed by a day of free time to wander the 22-acre property, explore nearby Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls or Blowing Rock, NC... or find something quaint and undiscovered.

Read a book, talk a walk, watch the color of fall as it creeps into the trees - - - it's totally up to you!

Each evening we'll gather again for a softer practice; from a Restorative Soundbath to Candlelight Yin (guided by Chinese Medicine Theory for Fall) - each night will ground us into self-nurturing, gentle exploration, followed by an early evening dinner.

Failure to pay the additional cost at least four weeks prior to arrival at Moon Rising will result in forfeiting your room and prior payments.
