A SoulCycle rebounder will get people moving in a different way this season.
SoulCycle Hops Off the Bike
Is spinning not your thing? Don’t give up on SoulCycle so fast.
The cycle studio is now offering a new “off-the-bike” class called The Link, featuring bellicon’s customized SoulCycle rebounders — essentially, mini trampolines — taught by Laurie Cole, a founding senior master SoulCycle instructor, at 264 Butter Lane in Bridgehampton.
The rebounder of choice for celebs like Cindy Crawford and Molly Sims, the workout targets hard-to-reach muscles via a low-impact intensity sequence, with benefits that include lymphatic drainage, pelvic floor strengthening, fat burning, core strength and detoxification.
The class also incorporates foam rolling and bands that work to elongate, reshape and encourage myofascial release. Each class is $42 and will be available throughout the summer. For more information, please call (631) 537-3630 or visit soul-cycle.com.
Malia Mills and Lillet Join Forces
Lillet, the French wine-based aperitif, has teamed with Malia Mills on the second installation of its Summer Style Series, a program that celebrates the aperitif occasions of summer in collaboration with inspiring female designers and brands — a partnership that marks the first-ever retail collaboration, available now through September 15 in Malia Mills stores nationwide, including 53 Jobs Lane in Southampton.
“We join with the folks at Lillet to harness the extraordinary power of the village — because when women come together there’s nothing we can’t accomplish,” Malia Mills said in a press release. “This summer we take our partnership to new heights with an emphasis on galvanizing gals for good, starting with non-profit course of trade. Cheers to Lillet for supporting our causes and for championing fierce women who lead the way for positive change in our communities. Hell yes!”
The Malia Mills x Lillet Aperitif Shop + Give Collection will support Course of Trade, a non-profit organization founded by Malia Mills production director Libby Mattern, dedicated to providing industrial sewing education to those in-need. Ten percent of the purchase price for each sale from this collection will be donated to the organization, funding training costs and wages for Course of Trade students.
With a shared goal of bringing more experiences to customers that not only entertain, but that also empower and support a greater cause, the two brands will commemorate this cause-oriented partnership with co-branded in-store displays, in-store pop-up events in Los Angeles, San Francisco and the Hamptons, and surprise-and-delight customer programs throughout the summer.
The collection features Malia’s Nisa, Annette, Laney, Greta and Swish dress designs — all handpicked to complement summer’s best “aperitif occasions,” from beach days to long weekends — as well as The Lillet Course of Trade Bag, which Malia Mills has manufactured in signature red in honor of the partnership. Each bag is embellished with two original pins: a signature Lillet pin and a Malia Mills “Hell Yes” pin, signifying the designer’s “love thy differences” mantra.
The Lillet range is comprised of three classics — Lillet Blanc, Lillet Rouge and Lillet Rosé — and the Lillet Spritz can be made by combining the Blanc or Rosé varieties with either club soda, tonic water or ice.

Stony Brook Southampton Hospital To Offer Heart Rhythm Treatment
On July 1, Stony Brook University Heart Institute will begin to offer select electrophysiology services to treat heart rhythm disorders, also known as arrhythmias, at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.
This new-to-Southampton service will help locals who need a pacemaker, defibrillator, or loop recorder implantation, complementing services offered in Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and providing residents with greater access to cardiovascular diagnosis, treatment and care, closer to home.
The procedures will be administered in Stony Brook Southampton’s Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart & Stroke Center, where specialists from the Stony Brook University Heart
Institute Heart Rhythm Center will identify abnormal heartbeats and then develop a personalized and minimally invasive treatment plan for patients that can be carried out in the Heart & Stroke Center’s endovascular surgical suite.
“For patients and their families living on the East End of Long Island, they no longer have to travel far to get quality heart rhythm care,” Dr. Eric J. Rashba, director of the Stony Brook Heart Rhythm Center, said in a press release. “They now can get the same quality of care they would get at Stony Brook, by our electrophysiology experts, right on site at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.”
