We are officially THREE years in to working together on our mats virtually from all around the world and we aren't done yet! I have all new workout videos up on the site for you today that will put a little pep into your step.
Many of you have contacted me who use my videos to let me know what you are working on, what injuries you have going on, what specific needs you have and I use that every month to make sure I am putting out content that helps each and every one of you - so THANK you for your feedback. If you have requests, please feel free to email me! I want you to get the most you possibly can from my library of classes.
Last weekend, Adam and I had the pleasure of returning to Adam's alma mater Indiana University as he was honored in receiving the Young Alumni Award from the Singing Hoosier Alumni Council. We wanted to take this opportunity to give back to the community.
This month, 20% of our proceeds will go toward the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center at Indiana University.
The NMBCC was born out of an era of campus activism in the late 1960s, followed by African American student groups creating a document outlining their goals to increase Black faculty, admit more Black students, and introduce Black studies programs. By 1969, the document went before the Faculty Council and was approved. The late Herman Hudson became the first chair of Afro American Studies, which is now known as the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies. Hudson went on to create the NMBCC, which supports teaching, research, and service missions of the university, while also offering a positive and hospitable social environment for African American and African students, faculty, and staff.
In January 2002, the NMBCC was officially dedicated in honor of the first African American man and woman to graduate from Indiana University: Marcellus Neal, who earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1895, and Frances Marshall, who received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1919.
The NMBCC has many programs including Freshman Pinning Ceremony, First Fridays, Midday House Parties, Student Development Opportunities, Black History Month and Black Congratulatory Ceremony. There are also student resources such as the NMBCC Library, Computer Lab, Counseling and Psychological Services, Academic Support Center, Graduate Mentoring Center, the African American Arts Institute, Black Center Film Center and Archive, Archives of African American Music and Culture as well as a list of Black Student Organizations and Bloomington Black-owned businesses.
