Peace Love World 18789 Biscayne Boulevard Aventura 305.792.9332 For as long as I can remember I haven t made traditional New Year s resolutions like losing weight or quitting a bad habit. Instead each January I make a list of my top three or four places around the world I want to visit new South Florida restaurants and local attractions I want to experience and interesting hobbies that I want to explore. In the midst of a chaotic work schedule and just the overall busyness and stress of life I decided a long time ago to make it a priority to have fun and to simply be present in my life. This year my resolutions include a big trip to Thailand Vietnam to take French lessons and to attend a Miami Heat game. While I do catch games on television shamefully I haven t been to a Heat game since Shaq played. Don t judge Every year Lifestyle chooses a player from the team to feature and this year we chose Hassan Whiteside. The 26-year-old center knows what it s like to come from behind (a little over a year ago no one even knew this shot-blocking star s name). I think you ll enjoy reading about his life both on and off the court and his goals for 2016. Just talking to him inspired me to go to a game to see him in action In this new year we hope to bring you more stories that matter to you and to our community. I hope you ve seen the magazine evolve over the past year as we are striving to make each issue better than the last. As always thank you for reading and please send me any story ideas you may have.

LMGFL.COM JANUARY 2016 29 COVER STORY The Bright Side of the Heat Whiteside New Heights for BY ANGELA CARAWAY-CARLTON DOWNTOWNPHOTO FORT LAUDERDALE 30 JANUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM JANUARY 2016 31 sk Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside what he likes to do when he s not on the basketball court and he ll tell you he s a huge movie buff. The 26-year-old loves watching comedies horror films and any flick starring his favorite actor Will Smith. But most importantly he cherishes a story with an underdog where a character comes from behind and wins in the end. Whiteside always roots for the underdog. The movie The Pursuit of Happyness was a real big movie for me says the soft-spoken Whiteside as he rattles off his top films. I always root for the underdog because there are a lot of people out there trying to reach their dreams people out there that are fighting for something. Whiteside feels like he s been fighting to get ahead his entire life. He grew up in Gastonia North Carolina where his mom a single mother struggled financially and his large family of brothers and sisters were constantly moving around. He recalls attending six or seven different high schools and never really making friends or an identity. Even in my hometown a lot of people don t really know me Whiteside says. I didn t have many friends growing up. I just became best friends with basketball. He did have one best friend and Whiteside remembers that as teenagers the two would pretend they played for the Heat. His friend would pose as Dwyane Wade and the 7-foot Whiteside would play the role of legendary Heat giant Shaquille O Neal. My friend would throw me alley-oops Whiteside recalls. Now we talk about how I m actually catching alley-oops from D. Wade in real life. It s just crazy. A little over a year ago Whiteside wasn t even a blip on the NBA radar shooting hoops at a YMCA in Charlotte North Carolina. He was with two NBA teams D-League teams and with international programs in China and Lebanon but few knew his name not even his current Heat teammates. But since the Heat took a chance on him in November 2014 Whiteside has quickly emerged as a shot-blocking machine whose stats show could eventually surpass Heat greats Alonzo Mourning and O Neal with the most shot blocks. I always want to protect the paint like I protect my dreams. I make sure I m always in the back of people s minds when they come up to that basket he says. Anything to help us win I m going to do. The young Whiteside lives near the American Airlines Arena and he can be seen going and coming at all times of the day and night to perfect his game. Lately he says his focus has been on his free throws and he blasts loud music to mimic what it s like on a game night with a crowd and distractions. He is also trying to control his aggression on the court which led to a lot of foul trouble for him last season. I realized it was hurting my team he admits. Now I kind of take things just a little more calm. I take a deep breath and just relax. I m not perfect but I m growing as a person. The basketball star has dreams of NBA championships and one day making it into the Hall of Fame. With another big-stat season under his belt it s almost guaranteed that 2016 will bring a life-changing NBA contract and monster payday for Whiteside. And just like the underdogs he roots for in his favorite movies he ll never forget his humble beginnings. I won t have to struggle as much financially as I have in the past and I could help my mom out. I could help a lot of people out he says. I want to leave my name on this planet. I didn t have many friends growing up. I just became best friends with basketball. 32 JANUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM Extras with Whiteside Your teammates say you have a huge appetite. What do you eat before games I can eat three peanut butter and jelly sandwiches two plates of lasagna two bowls of salad and a couple things of fruit and people look at me like I m crazy. I ve always had a big appetite since I was a little kid. I remember for my 10th birthday my sister got me a pizza from Pizza Hut and I ate the whole thing. My mom says I could be a competitive eater if basketball doesn t work out. What would you want to do if you weren t a basketball player I d be a NASCAR driver. Who s your best friend on the team I don t feel like there s just one. I think Luol Deng Udonis [Haslem] Chris Bosh and D. Wade are probably the most vocal when it comes to talking to me about basketball. From D it s basically just Put in the work all day and Never get down on yourself. You re good at blocking shots what else are you good at blocking in daily life I m good at blocking all negativity from my life you know anybody that s trying to down your dream. I don t like bullies and people that talk bad about people especially when they re chasing something in their lives. What are your New Year s resolutions Professionally I want to become a better all-around defender. I want to be able to get more steals. And personally I want to teach my French bulldog Ares more tricks. LMGFL.COM JANUARY 2016 33 34 JANUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM Go to the best. CODE Life2 70 years.

SOLOMON PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHANNING COE Hot on Held 50 JANUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM Yoga instructor Paige Held walks around the large studio at Fort Lauderdale s The Yoga Joint. What is it that you re trying to create in your life she asks her students who are lined up on the floor side-by-side on their yoga mats. Visualize what you want out of your life out of your yoga. There s no limit. She pauses before she instructs the students to change their pose. Usually yoga studios are library-quiet environments with Zen music as a background but The Yoga Joint s approach is different. Instead the Top 40 hit OneRepublic s Secrets plays. This mashup of motivational modern music and maintaining the lineage of 6 000 years of ancient yoga practice is Held and her business partner Kelly Green s way of making yoga accessible to everyone. Held a Fort Lauderdale native has been practicing yoga since she was 16. She says she thought the first class she attended was weird but she immediately felt its magnetic pull. I started to get into the spiritual aspect of yoga and I made some profound changes at a young age. She began teaching yoga 17 classes a week at different studios around South Florida. At the time she was a single mom with two children. I was on welfare and living off of Atlantic Boulevard and Interstate 95 she says. One night she had a dream a premonition really that came to her with the name The Yoga Joint. I visualized that it would be this really big space where people wouldn t only go to do yoga but there would be a sense of community. And as she says the way the universe works she met an investor who had the money and I had the idea. After years of training in Bikram yoga a style popularized by Bikram Choudhury that involves a series of poses in a heated room Held and Green began to find Bikram yoga too dogmatic. It was the same exact class every single time with no music among other things Held says. So we decided we wanted to explore other styles of yoga. Incorporating different poses from many different lineages and styles of yoga including heating the room to 95 degrees like Bikram then adding their interest in metaphysical and spiritual teachings the pair created their own style Hot Fusion Flow. In essence it is using the power of yoga for empowering participants to become the very best version of themselves they can be physically mentally and spiritually Held says adding that the name and the technique have been trademarked and patented. LMGFL.COM JANUARY 2016 51 What s your go-to snack I spread almond butter banana and a sprinkle of cinnamon on organic rice cakes. My kids like it too. If we re in a rush it keeps us going. Are you a vegetarian I eat organic but I do eat animal protein. I don t eat dairy or gluten. I eat a lot of fish and salad. Held wants to bring her style of yoga to the world Favorite place to dine out We love Green Bar & Kitchen on 17th Street [in Fort Lauderdale]. We probably go to Mayapapaya at least three times a week. And Casa D Angelo because they have great food and gluten-free pasta. It isn t easy to create a whole new approach to yoga which took the women two years to develop. They consulted anatomy teachers orthopedic surgeons chiropractors and a governing yoga alliance. We wanted to make sure it was systematically right for the body. We knew too that we were going to get a lot of heat from people who would say You are in your mid-30s and you re trying to develop your own sequence of yoga We made sure we really put the right amount of time and effort into it. Currently there are three locations of The Yoga Joint two in Fort Lauderdale and one in Boca Raton. Two more are planned for Miami and Sunrise. Our goal is to have five under our belt then do five more and keep going. I want to bring Hot Fusion Flow to the world says Held. There are future plans to set up The Yoga Joint outside of Florida but nothing is concrete yet. There are also ideas to have a retail store and healthy cafe paired with the studio. Another future aspiration is a yogawear line (Green is currently a brand ambassador for Lululemon Athletica). As busy as she is these days Held says she never misses starting her day with her own yoga and meditation routine before she heads out to the studio to teach a class. When my life is chaotic yoga grounds me. When I m in traffic and everyone is honking I think to myself they need yoga. They need to breathe. Who would you like to turn on to your Hot Fusion Flow method Sting. I was raised on his music his songs were on when I was in the delivery room having my children and my husband and I got married to the music of Sting. And besides being a musical legend he s a dedicated yogi. 52 JANUARY 2016 LMGFL.COM SPECIAL MARKETING FEATURE W H O S W H O I N H E A L T H C A R E BEN BRAFMAN LMHC CAP BEHAVIORAL HEALTH AND SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS 6555 POWERLINE RD SUITE 214 FORT LAUDERDALE FL 33309 (877) 380-9777 WWW.DESTINATIONHOPE.NET C E R T I F I C A T I O N S Licensed Mental Health Counselor Professional Supervisor for licensure in the state of Florida CEO of four programs Published Author and Speaker A F F I L I A T I O N S Southern Lights A.I.D.S.

The craft brewery recently opened Craft Food Counter & Kitchen inside its tap room not only is the food made with local ingredients but many of the dishes incorporate the beers and are designed to pair perfectly with certain brews. The menu dreamed up by Chef Jeff Vincent former executive chef of Beauty & The Feast is a good mix of meats and fresh veggies meaning there is something for carnivores vegetarians and vegans. I m a vegetarian so I brought Debbie my favorite meat eater to cover all the bases. There are no food waiters but the pick-up style of ordering is casual and easy. We started with the Blistered Peppers roasted shishito peppers with sesame oil and sprinkled with crushed roasted peanuts and sea salt. Eating the peppers was like playing Russian roulette since hidden in the bunch are a couple of hot ones but we polished off every last bite. The peppers are designed to be washed down with Funky Buddha s On-Top Blonde. Debbie loved the Main Street Pork Sandwich which was made with shredded pork shoulder marinated in Funky Buddha s Hop Gun IPA. The tangy mustard barbecue sauce is exceptional served in the perfect amount as to not drown out the meat. The Dr. Feelgood Veggie Burger which is made with freshly ground chickpeas quinoa and spent grains complemented by a zesty lemon herb aioli and spinach focaccia was superb. The patty was moist and seasoned to perfection one of the best I ve ever had. It s meant to be paired with the 42 Truths Florida Pale Ale a bright beer made in collaboration with Tap 42. The Griddled Cheese served on beer-buttered challah bread with a creamy blend of sheep cheese and Gouda was accompanied by a raspberry chili pepper jam that was equally sweet and spicy. The Fuhgeddaboudit Red Ale balanced all the flavors magically. Like the beer the food at Craft Food Counter & Kitchen is funky and fresh everything we ve come to expect from Funky Buddha and more.
