A Day of Pampering for Moms

If you're looking for something truly restorative and fun to do for Mother's Day, or a fabulous gift for Mom, look no further. Gifted teachers, expert practitioners and esteemed chefs are gathering at a lakeside retreat center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 9 in nearby Keswick, Virginia, to honor women and refresh their energy.

The OM Mama Indulge Yourself Spa Excursion is a daylong healing escape, full of indulgent body-mind offerings and pampering for any Mom. She gets to pick and choose from those offerings as to how to spend her day. Everything from silent meditation to a belly dance class are being offered - plus treats, gourmet food and handmade facials. Massage practitioners of Thai massage, Swedish massage and specialized massage therapies like craniosacral and trigger point are also in the line-up.

By the lake, women can enjoy a dip in the hot tub or laugh with friends in the gazebo. She can have a good sweat in the infrared sauna and refresh with a bath or even venture out to use the outdoor baths and shower.

“I want to provide an experience of serious play, healing, nourishment and camaraderie that comes from spending a full day focused on honoring and pampering mothers and women. Often women are under-rested and put the needs of others before their own. I hope they will be refreshed by the reverse of that pattern,” says Leigh Meredith, creator and organizer of the unique event.

Location: Bridge Between the Worlds Retreat Center, 2395 Paddock Woods Rd., Keswick, Virginia. For more information, contact [email protected] or visit
