Playing Athletic Chic with

THE PATHFINDERS BY AUGUSTA CAMPBELL

Every February, 4Memphis stars a non-profit in our fashion editorial as an opportunity to bring awareness to our readers of all of the wonderful and caring outreaches in our thriving community. This year, we are featuring the Pathfinders of Explore Bike Share. The Pathfinders are promising young leaders who are active in various city and charitable roles and serve as advocates for Explore Bike Share. We introduced them to you in our past October issue and this time around, eight Pathfinders graciously agreed to play fashion shoot for just one day at the downtown warehouse where all the coolest bikes and mopeds are stored. It was a blustery day but we had fun with these bright young folks and some really fresh athletic – inspired casual clothing with lots of sporty stripes, cheerful colors, and graphic details. We may have pushed a few boundaries with our looks, but everyone was easy and in the end, it was just like riding a bike.

February is a good month to stay indoors. I am not suggesting that you stay at home, but rather you take advantage of this array of offerings, most of which will keep you snug as a bug in a rug even if the weather is chilly. In addition to celebrating groundhogs, presidents, and cherubic archers this month, there are a few art openings and many theatrical opportunities. February may be the shortest month, but this one is packed with opportunities which will entertain and inspire. - Ken Hall

BY GENNA FARR It's no doubt that "getting back in shape" is one of the most popular New Year's resolutions out there. Unfortunately, studies have shown that less than 25% of people actually stay committed to their resolutions after just 30 days, which means, by the time February rolls around, you've likely disappointed yourself. But it's okay! Memphis has plenty of options when you decide you can't do it alone. Being a part of a community or team is key for changing your old habits--and that is exactly what Memphis has to offer - from yoga to crossfit. Indian Guru, Osho, says, "If you can strike the chord of consistency on the guitar of life, the world will dance to your music of greatness". Let the Memphis community help you achieve your goals, so you can live your best life!

THE SWEAT HOUSE thesweathouse.com

The Sweat House™ is a luxury, infrared sauna studio. Clients can enjoy sweating in the serenity of their own personal infrared sauna pod in a private sauna suite. A standard sweat session is 30 minutes long at The Sweat House™. The saunas are designed for the deepest, most detoxifying sweat through the use of infrared light (heat). Infrared heat therapy uses infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. The experience of an infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. The infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. By implementing the use of an infrared sauna session into your weekly routine you can help your body rid itself of devastating toxins, all while just relaxing for 30 minutes.

Far infrared saunas can also provide relief to patients suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and certain skin conditions. The Far infrared sauna therapy used at The Sweat House™ heats the body and penetrates deeply into joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation. There are many reasons that an infrared sauna dominates regular saunas - the main reason being that it is 7x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna. Unlike regular saunas, infrared saunas also help assist with pain relief, weight loss, lowering blood pressure, skin rejuvenation, and improved circulation.

THE EXERCISE COACH exercisecoach.com

Collierville residents Staci and Luke Eickmeier recently opened The Exercise Coach, a high-tech “smart-gym,” which relies on computers and robotics instead of dumbbells and treadmills. When new members join the fitness studio, they are given a code that is unique to them. When patrons plug in their code, the machines then adjust their workout to their strengths and weaknesses in real time, thereby helping them get the most out of their workout and avoid injury. The Exercise Coach combines bio-adaptive exercise technology with the guidance of certified coaches. Clients benefit from highly personalized programs resulting in only two 20-minute workouts per week that can’t be matched by even seven days a week of traditional exercise.

Luke Eickmeier, Owner of The Exercise Coach

“When I was introduced to the Exercise Coach, I was skeptical at first. Once I got an opportunity to learn about the science behind what we do and experience the workout for myself, I was thoroughly convinced at just how revolutionary it is was and how much this needed to be shared with others.” said Luke, a former Navy Officer. “The Navy has a culture of fitness that I loved. I got an opportunity to instruct Midshipmen at Ole Miss who struggled with their fitness, and I really enjoyed helping them to enjoy fitness like I did.”

HOT YOGA PLUS hotyogaplus.com

One of the most common excuses the teachers at Hot Yoga Plus (HYP) hear for people not coming to yoga is, "I'm not good at yoga." Their favorite answer is, "there is no such thing as good at yoga!" The philosophy at HYP is that being more "advanced" at certain postures doesn't make you good at yoga; it just makes you advanced at certain postures! At HYP, they believe that the beauty of yoga is that the practice meets you exactly where you find yourself on any given day. Yoga gives you choices: sometimes you need to push and grow and strengthen, but other times you need to readjust and rest and reset. HYP offers you the instruction, community, space and encouragement to help you navigate your choices - physically, mentally and emotionally.

While the heat (great for allowing students to stretch more deeply and to sweat out toxins) obviously differentiates HYP from other studios in town, what truly makes the studio unique is their attention to detail, from the abundant schedule options (classes ALL day ranging from 45 - 75 minutes), to cleanliness of the studio (great locker rooms and amenities), to the curated and stylish boutique (the best place in town to find athleisure wear). The studio recently underwent a renovation and now offers set boutique hours (10am - 4pm) with a patio where the public can enjoy juice, kombucha, coffee and community. All classes offered are appropriate for newbies and advanced students alike. Susannah Herring, Owner of Hot Yoga Plus

MACROS

(NUTRIENTS, THAT IS)

By Alaina Ward, Nutrition Therapy Memphis Are you ready to kick start your way to better health in 2019? It is easier than you might think by understanding how both MACRO and MICRO nutrients work together to keep us enjoying life. At Nutrition Therapy Memphis, our mission is identifying the root cause(s) of our clients’ health issues at both a macro and micro nutrient level and fixing the issues rather than just masking symptoms. It is vital that our clients know how MACRO nutrients function in our body and how they impact our hormones and blood sugar. Just as importantly, yet often overlooked, is how our MICRO nutrients impact our bodies’ health at the cellular level. To realize our mission of improving clients’ health, we offer blood tests that provide quantitative, objective data to identify specific micronutrient deficiencies. A food sensitivity test is also available to identify root cause(s) of inflammation in the body and to determine effective approaches to promote healing. These tests are beneficial for all autoimmune disorders, hormone imbalances, GI issues, joint pain, and weight management among other areas. To ensure health success in 2019, set realistic goals and focus on making SUSTAINABLE changes. True healing and a healthier you start on the inside, and result in outside improvements in how you feel and look. Alaina Ward, a Master’s level Licensed Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, runs Nutrition Therapy Memphis. She is also a Board Certified Specialist in pediatric nutrition, as well as a Certified LEAP specialist focusing in food sensitivities and micronutrients.

#4HOME

OUT WITH THE OLD...

Declutter for 2019 BY LESLEY HARRIS COLVETT

The hustle and bustle of the holidays are behind us, so now is a great time to get organized and declutter our homes. Whether you are lightening the load, tightening up your space, or simply refreshing your decor, the 4Memphis design experts advise how to begin this very rewarding process.

Cindy McCord Design 1289 South DuBray Place Collierville, TN 38017 901.647.0064 cindymccord.com

CUSTOM ORGANIZATION SOLUTIONS Blue Pencil Home Katie Savage and Brooke Levy

Everyone has a room, bookcase, drawer or even the entire house that needs a declutter makeover. Here are my suggestions for starting the new year with your New Year’s resolution of “I’m tired of the mess, I’m getting organized”. 1- Start with a plan that works for you. It may be one drawer a week until the four-drawer dresser is complete. Also look at your bookcases and countertops. Less is best! Clean off and remove clutter that has piled up over the year(s). 2- Remove everything from your space you are working on...everything! 3-Envision your goal of how you want it to look 4-Commit to having three piles: give away, keep, and trash. 5-Replace items in a neat and orderly fashion and commit to keeping it organized 6-Declutter often. 7-Everything should have a home, and sometimes the trash can is the home!

Blue Pencil Home, the brainchild of Brooke Levy and Katie Savage, began in the fall of 2017 and this dynamic organizing duo has been transforming spaces in homes across the city ever since! Their goal is to take the stress away and assist you in developing maintainable solutions. You can follow them on Instagram #bluepencilhome, or find them at www.bluepencilhome.com.

BEFORE

AFTER THE PANTRY

There is no formula to how much and how often you should start this task. Everyone’s time opportunities are different. Even if you commit to 10 minutes a day you will see a vast improvement in a month! The key is to start. The thrill of victory in this area of decluttering and being organized will make you happy and peaceful. Just get started, and do not be fooled by the things that we know we should purge. Those items often tend to call out to us of their great purpose when faced with being purged. Be confident! Get rid of it if there is any question - you will not miss it!

WITH KATIE SAVAGE AND BROOKE LEVY / BLUE PENCIL HOME / CUSTOM ORGANIZATION SOLUTIONS

HOW DID BLUE PENCIL HOME BEGIN AS A BUSINESS? We both love it!!! Before we started Blue Pencil Home, we were doing this for our friends and family. It is what we enjoy doing and feel blessed that we get the opportunity to use our strengths to help others. And we get to do it together...we are having so much fun!!! WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE TO A HOMEOWNER WHO KNOWS THEY NEED TO DECLUTTER/ ORGANIZE, BUT DOESN’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN? Starting is always the toughest part, but it will feel so good when it is done! We think it is important for the homeowner to know what rooms need help and then prioritize those spaces. We have some clients that are ready to tackle the hardest projects first and some that need to start with a smaller one, to help gain momentum. Either way is great, because you are beginning the process. IS THERE TYPICALLY A MOST TROUBLED/CLUTTERED AREA OF THE HOME? Every client is different, that is what makes our job so fun! We see all spaces, some can be more cluttered than others. WHAT IS THE MOST REWARDING PART OF BEING A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER? Making our clients happy and lifting, what can be, a huge weight off their shoulders. Clutter and disorganization can weigh down a person and become so overwhelming that it is easier to shove more things into a space, than it is to mentally/physically/emotionally do the cleanout. Our goal is to make lives more simple and stress free, through organization.

Chefs Keith Clinton & Erling Jensen

HOW DOES ONE KNOW IT IS TIME TO DECLUTTER THEIR HOME? It is different for every person. For some clients, it is preparation for a party and or for a move. We have some clients who are totally overwhelmed by the clutter and disorganization, that everyday life is stressful, and they need to push restart. REASON YOU FEEL IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO HAVE A CLUTTER-FREE HOME? We both have kids, and for us it helps with the everyday tasks of being a parent, and the need to get out the door as quickly as you can. Life, in itself, can be stressful and busy. Having an organized and clutter-free home can bring a sense of calm, in what can feel like a chaotic life.

Regional One Health Foundation ONE Night: Co-Chairs Turn Difficult Experiences Into A Force For Good

J

Jennifer Hobson & Suzana Lightman ennifer Hobson and Suzana Lightman have much in common. They’re both Memphis natives who are engaged in the city’s civic and business communities; loving moms who take their competitive side to the tennis courts. Both are passionate about supporting the less fortunate.

And, both have turned traumatic experiences into forces for good. Hobson lost daughter Jane as an infant. The little girl and twin brother Joel were born at 28 weeks, and Jane became ill with necrotizing enterocolitis. She passed away at two weeks old. Lightman’s husband, Michael, had a zipline accident five years ago. She can still hear the terrified voices of their children, and the paramedics declaring him a top-level trauma patient. Rather than give into the pain of those events, Hobson and Lightman were inspired to pour their energy into helping others in times of medical crisis. They’re co-chairing the Regional One Health Foundation ONE Night fundraising gala Saturday, April 13 at Memphis Cook Convention Center. R&B legends Chaka Khan and Billy Ocean will entertain on this night of powerful philanthropy.

Hobson, who operates Hobson Realtors with husband Joel, was introduced to Regional One Health after touring its Sheldon B. Korones Newborn Center as a March of Dimes volunteer.

"I want more women to have access, because I feel like if you come to Regional One Health, they’ll save you.” - Jennifer Hobson Jane hadn’t been treated there because all its beds were full, and that, plus the inspirational work Jennifer witnessed, sparked her desire to help expand the facility: “The premature birth rate in Memphis is very high – the fact that there was no room for Jane shows the need. I want more women to have access, because I feel like if you come to Regional One Health, they’ll save you.” Lightman saw precisely that at the Elvis Presley Trauma Center with Michael. He had a broken back, and doctors hurried to protect his spinal cord. He would eventually recover. While those personal experiences are a big motivator, Regional One Health’s role as Memphis’ safety-net hospital inspires them as well. During Michael’s emergency, “I could hear the grief and pain everyone was going through,” said Lightman. “These were all Memphians, many hanging on by a thread. Their emergencies didn’t come by choice, and it could happen to any of us. “I gained a new perspective of Regional One Health and the need for the best equipment, staff and innovation so every Memphian has the best chance for survival or healing.”

For Hobson, her desire to help serve the underserved helps the city she loves thrive. “Memphis has a lot going for it, but to me it’s about the people,” Hobson said. “I don’t think you meet a stranger. Everybody is warm, welcoming and ready to serve you a good plate of food! Memphis has soul: when you leave it, you feel it.” Lightman agrees. “You can talk to someone you’ve never met and discover a person you both know. In Memphis, the more involved you are in something you’re passionate about, you find a group with similar passions that will embrace you.” That’s a vibe that carries through to ONE Night, which Hobson said “feels like Memphis” thanks to its diverse crowd and upbeat atmosphere. With work-of-art invitations, stunning decor and world-class entertainment, “We give our guests an experience – not just a show, an experience.” “Memphis is one of the top cities for philanthropic giving, and we know how to make it fun,” Lightman added. “We love good food and music, and we embrace each other’s individuality.” It’s a lot of hard work, but both women balance the passions they pursue for their community with those they enjoy personally. A lifelong animal lover, Hobson has opened her home to three dogs, two umbrella cockatoos and an African tortoise named El Chapo. She’s an avid reader and loves to hit the tennis court: “I play tennis like it’s my job,” she laughed. “That’s my sanity.” Lightman is also a reading and tennis enthusiast – “My whole family plays, so you can usually find a Lightman on a tennis court!” – and has loved travel since joining her father on the scientific lecture circuit while growing up: “It opened my eyes to how the rest of the world lives. It’s something I wanted to make sure my children have the opportunity to do.” Both added the hours they pour into ONE Night are well worth it considering what’s at stake. “Everyone in Memphis who has a traumatic emergency deserves the best chance of survival so they can go home to their families or loved ones,” Lightman said. “ONE Night spreads awareness that we need a bigger NICU, bigger burn unit, top surgeons, state-of-the-art equipment,” Hobson said. “We need that because Regional One Health saves lives. And what’s more important than saving someone’s life?”

Add oil to heat. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon of the dried thyme on all sides. Sear in batches until skin is lightly browned; set aside to a plate and continue until all of the chicken is seared. Remove from pressure cooker. Change the setting on the pressure cooker to “saute” and add the onion, celery and carrots to the pot. Season with a small pinch of salt and the remaining teaspoon of thyme and cook until the onion is translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Add the chicken back to the pot and pour in the wine. Set the lid on the machine and set for high pressure. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes. Quick release the pressure valve and remove the chicken from the pot to a clean plate. Stir in the heavy cream to the sauce, taste and adjust seasoning before nestling the chicken back in the pot. Keep warm while you make the polenta. If you would like a heavier bodied sauce, whisk ½ teaspoon cornstarch in with the heavy cream before adding it to the cooking liquid. Make sure to set your machine back to the saute feature to bring the mixture back to a boil – allow the mixture to boil for at least one minute to activate the cornstarch. Have your butcher cut away the rib bones from the backs of the chicken breasts. This will keep you from having to fish out tiny bones from your completed sauce after the chicken is cooked.

For the polenta, combine the milk, broth, butter, salt and pepper together in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium low. While whisking constantly, slowly sprinkle in the cornmeal, whisking to prevent lumps from forming. Continue to cook until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the parmesan cheese. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. To serve, spoon the hot polenta in serving bowls, placing chicken, vegetables and cream sauce over top. Garnish with parsley, if desired. FEBRUARY 2019 | 4memphis.com |

Common Table Health Alliance By: Caroline Weakley

The Common Table Health Alliance is a nonprofit organization in Memphis that focuses on healthcare improvement with help from local organizations, coalitions, schools, churches, etc. Their efforts to improve the city bring people around the “common table” that creates a greater difference and a positive change to our region. They have a determined goal to provide strength and education to achieve the greater impact for our city. The Justice in Health Care Foundation was formed originally to encourage an improved healthcare system, which three years later formed the Healthy Memphis Common Table. This developed into the idea which focuses on a more wide-spread collaboration to improve health quality no matter the area. Their impact has worked to close the inequality gap we have in Memphis through different programs and funding. These initiatives and programs cover a vast amount of problems ranging from the mission to reduce chronic disease occurrences, empowering children to choose healthy life styles and choices, activating communities to take action when it comes to health disparities, and leading a change by raising the standard acceptable quality for care in Memphis. One of these impacts include CTHA’s Project Better Care Initiative, which increased the number of diabetic patients who received A1c testing by 31%. Moreover, their Diabetes for Life Initiative trained and cached 600 participants in managing their care through their program. However, the Common Table Health Alliance does not stop there; they reach to problems from fitness to breast cancer. I had the pleasure to attend their Breast Cancer 901 event back in December where they reached out to many women in Memphis to provide and educate women and girls on the importance of their health. This connects to their overall mission “to achieve health equity through trusted collaborations, partnerships and direct services.” The Common Table does not focus on status or wealth in our community but rather trying to bring the community together and improve the health of our whole city. I also think their mission is unique because rather than focusing on one issue in a community they have a broader outlook over our whole city to improve many sectors we as a community need help in. To do this, they create programs and fund to improve poor health and prevent chronic disease due to lack of education, financial stability, and quality throughout the Greater Memphis area. The Common Table Health Alliance is conducted under Kiki Hall who began in August of last year. She desires to solve the health and wellness disparities in our region and sees the hard work she has in front of her. However, I have no doubt that Common Table will continue to make a difference and remain influencing our community through health. To do this and carry out their impactful mission, Common Table aims to work through grants and charitable donations. By doing this, anyone in the community can feel they have made a difference as well and have made an important impact. If you wish to donate, you can go online and simply donate through their website to make your difference and help Common Table help our community by contributing to their mission.
