Get Your Yoga Groove On in 24 Cities Around the Globe

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 06/30/16

YogaStyles of RICH and the Almost Famous Sets its Sites and Cities

Chicago, IL: With the filming of YogaStyles of RICH and the Almost Famous: Chicago less than a month away, the show’s creator and world’s best Yogatainer, Rich Tola, announced plans to visit 11 more U.S. cities plus 12 international cities to round-out Seasons 1 and 2, produced through Tola’s company, Two Strike Hitter Productions.

Yoga expert and lifelong fitness virtuoso, Rich Tola aims to inspire everyone on the planet. “It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing, anybody can squeeze in a measly 5 minutes of Yoga everyday, and I will prove that. Spark it up with a quickie, a simple Warrior pose or balancing, plus it’ll help you reinforce a clear and positive mindset throughout your day,” declares Tola. “Not to mention that every practitioner, from beginner-to-advanced, should know the proper body mechanics of every pose, especially the twists, and more importantly, how to come in and out of difficult positions while avoiding injury.”

Tola and his band of beautiful “Yoga babes” appropriately called The Namaste Five, will also be demonstrating creative and challenging sequences with Rich leading the charge. While most of his teaching will be done to unsuspecting residents and tourists nearby historic landmarks and major attractions, Rich and his rockstar yoginis will take you to a new level, “We’ll show you how to make the hard stuff look easy,” Tola said.

The 12 U.S. cities for Season 1 include: Chicago, Denver, Austin, Philadelphia, Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Boca Raton, Boston, Boise and Washington D.C. And kudos to seven of these utopias who also made Yoga Journal magazine’s “America’s Top Yoga Towns,” including Chicago, Denver, Austin, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. The 12 international cities for Season 2 include: Beijing, Barcelona, Paris, Dublin, Sydney, Havana, Dubai, Tel Aviv, Singapore, London, Rio de Janeiro and Prague.

Since becoming a Certified Yoga Teacher in 2006, Rich has taught more than 25,000 students in over 2,000 classes throughout the United States. He also produced nearly 30 hours of instructional videos and DVDs including his film, Boulevard Zen (2009). Rich received BSE from The Wharton School (PENN) and MBA from The Kellogg School of Management (Northwestern).
