We did get snow: an inch or two on top of three inches of a snow/sleet mix, all of which is now tamped down into sheets of ice along the parking lots and secondary roads (and spots of main roads, too). I’m keeping busy postponing series and our weekday yoga teacher training—two spots remain, and we start January 17 now! We did get to put our money where our mouths are by visiting Panciuto in Hillsborough before the snow arrived. If only we could have walked over—Saturday night they offered family-style dining at the community table.
We put our money where our mouths are and headed through the sleet to our favorite place to eat, @panciutorestaurant. When we got there, the chef/owner was treating the sidewalk out front with pickling salt. We enjoyed one of our best meals ever in the company of hardy, friendly people. And the roads were clear and empty all the way home. Support your local small businesses, and stay safe in the storm. #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #snomg
Dara, our director at Hillsborough Spa and Day Retreat, lives just around the corner from the building, so she is ready to open for anyone who wants to nestle in to the sauna! Book online or call her at 919-617-1814.
Meanwhile, I’ve cancelled all classes at Carrboro Yoga, Durham Yoga, and Hillsborough Yoga through Tuesday at noon, when the temp will be reliably above freezing. Our suggestions for enjoying yoga from home:
- Stream classes with our wonderful teachers online.
- Construct a home practice. Studio co-owner Sage Rountree has several books to help, and our teacher Mira Shani’s beautiful 108 Asanas flashcards can help you plan, too. These are all available at the studio and online: sagerountree.com and 108yogalove.com.
- Think ahead and sign up for our wonderful series and workshops in Carrboro! While you’re browsing, be sure to look at the Durham Yoga and the Hillsborough Yoga pages. We’ve just added a Kundalini Yoga series in Hillsborough.
- If you’re ready for a major shift, we have two spaces left in our hybrid weekday yoga teacher training, which has been pushed forward one week because of the weather! It now begins Tuesday, January 17. Read all about it here and contact Sage to begin your application.
Wes is at Rue Cler and reports a full house for brunch (beignets!). Thanks for supporting your small local businesses extra hard in the next few days.
Friday’s forecast high: 70 degrees.
