Hey everyone, hope you’re rockin’ your workouts, but if not you’re in luck.
As promised – and since most of us have adapted to fitness at home – thought I’d contribute to our collective wellness with complimentary Tola Yogaclasses. Join me for a great workout, or simply watch and learn.
Go to Zoom.us then click ‘join a meeting’ (upper right).

In honor of National Yoga Month, I have decided to extend my half-price Tola Yogaprivate lessons through September 30th.
That means anyone from beginner-to-advanced students can transform their practice with some private instruction from yours truly for only $60 per lesson. And only $90 for all corporate or group lessons.
And if you never tried yoga and have questions regarding your ability to practice or just want some insight on how to begin the process, email me and we’ll get you ready: [email protected]
Remember, the journey of a thousand miles starts with just one step.
And no worries if you’re not flexible, because yoga makes you flexible. No doubt. When I took my first class more than a dozen years ago I couldn’t even touch my toes. Within a few months I was touching the ground with my fingertips…and now I can touch both palms to the ground.
Amazing what a little yoga can do for you, not to mention the workout you get with Tola Yoga.
Everybody knows the answer to that infamous question, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall”, right? Of course, it’s “practice, practice, practice”. And if you believe best-selling author and pop psych writer, Malcolm Gladwell (Outliers), you’ll say it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become world-class in any field.
But what happens when the foundation you’ve set for all your practicing is not that sturdy, or better yet, it’s built on quicksand?
That’s why anyone looking to build a strong yoga practice should learn the proper fundamentals before spending hours upon hours in the yoga studio. Just like I say in Chapter 68 of my memoir, Simply Between Millions: From Wall Street to Hollywood, it’s always best to Learn from the Best. Or at the very least, learn from someone who has learned from the best.
That’s also why if you’re in Los Angeles you should treat yourself to a Tola Yoga class or private lesson to help you build that strong foundation. There’s something for everyone…from beginner-to-advanced as well as pregnant women…with my five distinct classes:
Tola Yoga Fundamentals – for beginners or anyone looking to re-learn the basics
Tola Yoga Prime – for intermediate students and strong beginners
Tola Yoga Power – for advanced students and strong intermediates
Tola Yoga Prenatal – for women in all stages of pregnancy
Tola Yoga Stretch & Restore – for all students from beginner-to-advanced
Feel free to email me your questions and to schedule your Tola Yoga private lesson today: [email protected]
Simply put, do the very best you can in everything you do and let the Universe decide what happens next. And if your heart and your mind are really not into it, then reconsider the task at hand and make another choice. Because making good choices is easier than you think!
And always remember to break all the rules except this one: Another day, Another workout
Tola Talks with Celebrity Fitness Trainer, Author, Spokesperson and LATalkRadio’s host of “Fit and Sexy for Life”, Kathy Kaehler. On Whatever Wednesdays, Rich also talks about healthy living & good nutrition, gunshots & terror in Canada, Social Security increases & Warren Buffet losing Billions, plus the GYST Award for pre-natal pill popping & drug addicted babies.
American writer and Nobel Laureate John Steinbeck once said, “Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.” Well, much like handling rabbits, I’ve been churning out 5 minute fat burning workouts everyday for the past six weeks. Today is no different with three simple exercises that’ll make your abdominal muscles scream. At the very least, you can tell your friends you’re doing a little something to prepare your midsection for those 90 degree bikini days – which, for those of us living in LA, began yesterday. So turn down the music and enjoy listening to your soon to be ‘beach-ready’ abs scream in workout #38. Have fun! -R
In keeping with our theme to burn fat while sculpting your thighs, workout #3 of my 5 minute fat burning series employs the age old exercise most commonly referred to as the lunge. For anyone looking to start a new fitness program, keep it simple and make sure you do something everyday – even for only 5 minutes. It will help establish a strong foundation that will propel you to greater fitness heights. Enjoy your workout – R
Imagine peeling off a Post-It note and sticking it on your wardrobe mirror so you can watch the morning news while you’re getting dressed. Or better yet, post it anywhere – at any time – and join me for 5 minutes of yoga or a 15 minute fat burning workout. Because soon the U.S. Army will be field testing a so-called “Dick Tracy wristwatch” with a flexible plastic screen that won’t shatter or crack like glass. That one day soon may result in moving images that are not limited to your PDA, television or computer screen. Imagine that. A wireless flexible display that can receive and transmit data anywhere. And we thought space travel was impossible. Simply put, anything’s possible. Or at least anything you set your mind to. Because why not change your belief that something isn’t possible and go for it. At the very least, if you truly believe and manifest that something is possible, and set your sights beyond your previously perceived realm of possibility, then your new belief might just happen. Like embracing a daily fitness program. Because who doesn’t have 1% of their life to respect themselves?
