When it comes to winter and wellness, we usually have options to meet up for a concert, hot cocoa, or tea and gather with loved ones and friends. These days are different for all of us however we quickly adjust, create, move forward, and become balanced all over yet again. This is because we are resilient.

We encourage you to look inside and find your resilience, find it and explore it. We are resilient. Similar to the tree that falls in the forest, the vibration is real and can be heard if you stop and listen. There’s a knowing that all is well. Enjoy each day because it’s a gift.

Mobility is the ability to move your body, freely without discomfort or pain, or awkwardness. We gain mobility by exercising and being mindful of how we move in the exercises to increase our range of motion. The body similar to the spirit wants to fill as much space as possible, that is to increase or gain range of motion. Increasing range of motion prevents injury and builds athleticism and overall functions. When you are at your fittest self, you feel you can take on the world. Your breathing improves, your range to move picks up and you become agile, quick, and nimble. This improves lifestyle experiences, which will provide a better way to look and feel about yourself in the world. Peace and balance increase and positivity sets in.

DOUBLE LEGEND ALERT: Rapper Megan Thee Stalliontook to Instagram over the weekend to showcase a handbag from Dior’s recent collaboration with artist Judy Chicago. The bag is based on Chicago’s 1973 painting Let It All Hang Out. In her autobiography, Through the Flower, the artist writes that, when she finished it, “I cried for several hours. The painting was forceful and yet feminine. I had never seen those two attributes wedded together in an image.” Here's hoping the artists link up for a collaboration of some sort soon. [@theestallion/Instagram]

One of our first engagements was a contract with a private college where we hired and mentored a team of instructors. It was inspiring to give opportunities to our friends. Eventually, we launched in Hunts Point, The South Bronx where collective inspiration goals were accomplished. Supporters would trek from Harlem by subway, car-pool, or take a bus to meet for fitness sessions and workshops.

Small businesses are the foundation of the community and must have support in order to survive our new world. As far as we are aware, there hasn't been sufficient relief for small businesses, particularly in Harlem. Harlem, New York is globally recognizable for its contributions to art, entertainment, innovation, creativity in America's footprint. The community has conducted and supported wellness. The "Bath House" formerly located on 135th cultivated a myriad of fitness that included, swimming, basketball, African dancing, drummers, instructors, and community participants and loved ones. Many considered the day-long sessions of which often featured International talent from various countries of Africa. Congolese Dance was one of the most popular and familiar to African Americans. You could find us there, sharing information, networking, leading, and mentoring each other. Basically supporting our healthy lifestyle. These wellness rituals were an underlying, unpublished fitness experience celebrated and supported by the community. Similar to church service, we would go beyond 3 hours a session. These things were happening throughout Harlem beyond 145th through to the Oberia Dempsey Center on West 127th Street. Community wellness and fitness included chess, football, ice-skating, fencing, line dancing, salsa, swimming, and more. Although most are non-profit or big box brands, there is an urgency for innovation to be competitive and keep pace with the demand especially with the expansion of development. We created Eye Cycle due to scarce access to small groups and boutique training experiences. Direct and small gatherings have allowed focused, targeted, and streamlined successful outcomes. We are ready to make the leap into innovation and see success when the baton is passed. All we require is an opportunity and access to funding. Wellness is a lifestyle we've lived for a while.
