Today we’re paying tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s a national holiday in the United States and time to honor a great man who stood for never ending equality and justice for all. MLK was also the youngest man to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, and a civil rights leader who inspired a nation with his “I Have a Dream” speech in front of 250,000 people gathered around the Lincoln Memorial during their peaceful march upon our nation’s capitol. We’re also talking about the Wolf Moon, a full moon that illuminates to its fullest tonight at 6:48p EST. Plus more fitness tips and inspiration as well as three more steps to everlasting youth from my book, How to Drink from the Fountain of Youth. Have an awesome holiday everyone…and get your workout in!
Today we’re talking about the 2021 US Capitol attack and crazy piranhas in Paraguay attacking humans; tennis champion Novak Djokovic being refused entry into Australia; more Los Angeles mask mandates even though they’re ineffective; crazy Texas trivia including it’s illegal to milk someone else’s cow; continued protests in Kazakhstan severely disrupting the Bitcoin mining industry amid more cryptocurrency price plunges; plus four more steps to Everlasting Youth as well as diet and fitness tips when you’re under the weather (like me today).
Another day, another workout…in another great American city:
How fortunate I am to experience and explore the #1 place to live in the United States for the past two years (U.S. News & World Report), the “City of the Violet Crown” with its unofficial slogan “Keep Austin Weird”, the state capital of Texas as well as the southernmost state capital in the contiguous 48 states, the “Live Music Capital of the World” and of course, home to the music, film and interactive festival, South by Southwest (SXSW), not to mention the Austin City Limits Festival (ACL) held every year in Zilker Park.
Austin also marks the 7th major U.S. city in as many years where I’ll be teaching my fitness style of Tola Yoga through the end of July. Because no doubt life is all about the journey while relentlessly pursuing your passion, regardless of where it takes you.
Have an amazing Father’s Day everyone, and get your workout in!
Peace – R

New Reality TV Series from the World’s Best Yogatainer
Chicago, IL: Are you one of the 80 million people who want to try Yoga in 2016? If so, then “You want me on your TV!” declares Rich Tola, the world’s best Yogatainer and creator of the upcoming Reality TV series, YogaStyles of RICH and the Almost Famous.
Yoga expert and lifelong fitness virtuoso, Rich Tola aims to teach everyone on the planet the fundamentals of the 6,000 year-old practice with his unique, workout style of Tola Yoga. “People who have never tried Yoga usually ask themselves, What is it and can I do it without getting hurt? And since Yoga involves twisting and turning the body into unfamiliar and challenging poses, or Asanas, as they’re called in the ancient Sanskrit language, you need to know the proper body mechanics as well as how to come in–and-out of difficult positions while avoiding injury,” Tola said.
And who better to motivate the masses than the world’s most handsome Yogatainer and producer of 30 fun and entertaining lessons in his Yoga Survival Guide, including Bus Stop Yoga, Traffic Yoga, Office Yoga, Shower Yoga and even Watching the Ellen Show Yoga.
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 including his film, Boulevard Zen (2009), Yoga-to-Go DVD, Rich Tola’s Yoga Survival Guide DVD, Rich Tola’s 15 Minute Fat Burning Workouts DVD, Stay Zen Web Series, Rich Tola’s 5 Minute Fat Burning Workouts Web Series, plus his recent Tola Yoga classes and a special 10-episode “How-to” series for Livestrong.com.
Just like his precise teaching style and no-nonsense East-coast Italian energy, Rich will inspire audiences with his one simple mantra: Yoga…Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere.
“YogaStyles of RICH and the Almost Famous will take you on a wild and witty ride throughout the streets of Chicago before traveling to capitol cities around the globe”, says Tola. “We will creatively demonstrate that anyone of any age, size or gender can reap the benefits of Yoga, as well as highlight National Landmarks and popular destinations of each metropolis while teaching Yoga to its “Almost Famous” business leaders, designers, politicians, musicians and athletes.” Plus, anyone else Rich happens to meet along the way.
