Talk at Blowing Rock Museum: Genevieve Stebbins: Stories of Blowing Rock’s Mysterious Resident “Yogi,” 1890s-1910s on August 9th

Talk at Blowing Rock Museum: Genevieve Stebbins: Stories of Blowing Rock’s Mysterious Resident “Yogi,” 1890s-1910s on August 9th

Ashe county has been home to many an interesting character. Genevieve Stebbins (1857-1934) might just be one of Blowing Rock’s least well-known, but most-renowned, summer residents. For about ten years beginning in the mid-1890s, she and her husband, a retired British military officer, spent their summers in a house overlooking the Johns River Gorge. Like so many others, they came to the mountains to relax. But relaxation was also what made Stebbins famous. In her lifetime, she was a celebrated teacher of relaxation exercises—including something she called Yoga breathing. It was among the exercises Stebbins taught in Madison Avenue parlors, YMCAs, and at an influential school she began in New York City. Stebbins also debuted innovative performances of self-expressive dance, and Ruth St. Denis and Isadora Duncan were among those inspired by her aesthetics. This talk will share stories from Stebbins’ fascinating life and offer insights about her connection to modern dance and modern Yoga.

Blue Ridge Brutal on August 11th

Blue Ridge Brutal on August 11th

The Brutal is one of the premiere mountain rides in this area and is not for the fainthearted. The three options – 56-mile, 72-mile and 102-mile rides take you onto the Blue Ridge Parkway and over many hills. All these rides can be considered challenging to strenuous. However, you can mix the pain with the joy of riding through some of the most beautiful scenery in North Carolina which, we believe, makes these rides some of the most spectacular in this area. This ride tours Ashe and Alleghany counties and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Beginning and ending in front of the Ashe Civic Center, in the shadow of Mount Jefferson, the ride offers varied and challenging terrain.
