If you’re just getting around to buying gifts or haven’t found the perfect thing yet, don’t panic! How about a gift card for your recipient’s locally owned yoga studio or spa? If you’re in central North Carolina, we offer gift cards in any amount for Carolina Yoga Company and for Hillsborough Spa and Day Retreat.
Or give a membership to YogaVibes, where your friend can stream hundreds of online classes, including dozens of classes with me. The code sagevibes will save you $50 on an annual subscription.
Or give an experience, like a weekend or a full week at the beautiful Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in western Massachusetts. I’ll be offering these workshops there in January:

Nothing new under the sun. Today’s unexpected joy: finding this ad for @kripalucenter in the June/July 1980 issue of @yogajournal in the stacks at the @uncsa library. Note the Yoga and Running workshop at the top right. I’ll be leading two workshops at Kripalu in January: Yoga for Athletes (and everyone) 1/4–6, and Teaching Yoga to Athletes 1/6–11. Join me: I promise you’ll feel as radiantly happy as this woman! You can get to registration via the link in bio or at sagerountree.com. Thanks @vivianrountree for the find. #ujoy #kripalu #yogaforathletes #yogaforrunners #ytt
Finally, here’s an unrelated, unpaid endorsement. After reading the illuminating book Real Food, Fake Food by Larry Olmstead (a nice gift in itself, published by Chapel Hill–based Algonquin books and only $1.99 on the Kindle!), I joined the Fresh Pressed Olive Oil Club, based in Asheville, NC. They send three excellent fresh oils each quarter, and these oils really elevate whatever you put them on. They would be a great gift for a friend or for yourself!
Dear Lindsey, I love your American impulse, but what were you thinking? Celebrate once it’s over, honey!!! Love,Sage
