Another great show with the multi-talented recording artist and entrepreneur, Moses Stone. We’re talking all things music and movies this week including the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi, plus listening to two original songs from this charismatic rapper.
It’s also the final Tola Talks of 201 7, so we’re highlighting the best of the best including If I Were President and thank you shout-outs to my celebrity guests. Not to mention some timeless fitness & Tola Yoga tips for 2018, and of course, the Get Your Shit Together Award.
Thanks again everyone, for tuning in these past few months…it’s been a blast!
Stay tuned for the next generation of Tola Talks to be announced on my website www.RichTola.com and my socials: @richtola
Happy Holidays…and may the force be with you! Peace – R
We’re talking all things Movies & Music today with my special guests, DJ Rebekka Starr and MC Freddy Figs. Starting with their favorite genre of Hip-Hop, we discuss the history of music from the early 1970’s to today’s wildly popular Electronica (EDM) and the Top 10 DJs that rule the raves.
On a beautiful sunny day in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, Tola also Talks about movies that spotlight “The Valley” including We Are Your Friends (Zac Efron) and Elektra Luxx (Carla Gugino), plus what this infamous basin is really know for: strip malls, sushi restaurants in strip malls, and of course, porn stars. We also pay tribute to the King of Hip-Hop, Eminem, and the late Adult Film Actress, August Ames, an unfortunate victim of cyberbullying. Thanks for tuning-in everyone! Peace – R
Never underestimate the power of your thoughts, and without question, never ever underestimate The Power of One.
For the third time in 20 years I’m reading Bryce Courtenay’s , The Power of One. An amazing tale of a young boy’s travels and heartfelt metamorphosis – not to mention his spiritual influence on everyone he meets – that’s “part Charles Dickens, part Horatio Alger”, as described by the Raleigh News & Observer. More specifically, this magical journey filled with heartache and pure elation inspires anyone really listening to its deep-rooted message…to always listen to yourself and believe in the power of one: one idea, one heart, one mind, one plan, one determination.
Before I leave you with a paragraph from the novel that rings true no matter what your occupation or calling, take time to reflect on 2016 and set your thoughts on an even better 2017! Mine was quite amazing, with several milestones that set the course for my one idea:
Created my unique style of Tola Yoga after 10 years of teaching 2k classes & 25k students,
Produced the original Reality TV series pilot, YogaStyles of RICH and the Almost Famous,
Celebrated 50 years of fitness – 40 years of weightlifting plus over 10 years of Yoga,
Celebrated 10 years as an Entertainer/Producer and Yoga Teacher (and Yogatainer),
Lived in three amazing cities: Chicago, Las Vegas and Seattle (love it here!)
And whatever your goals are for the New Year, remember to respect yourself with a daily fitness program. And just like young Peekay says, dare your courage to follow your thoughts:
“The power of one is above all things the power to believe in yourself, often well beyond any latent ability you may have previously demonstrated. The mind is the athlete; the body is simply the means it uses to run faster or longer, jump higher, shoot straighter, kick better, swim harder, hit further, or box better. Hoppie’s dictum to me, “First with the head and then with the heart,” was more than simply mixing brains with guts. It meant thinking well beyond the powers of normal concentration and then daring your courage to follow your thoughts.”
Have a safe and Happy New Year everyone! Peace – R
Tola Talks about the best exercises you can do using a stool…with clips from his Stay Zen web series on exactly how to do them. So don’t be a stooly and check-out the Top 10 Ways to Workout with a Stool. Plus special shout-outs to Lady Gaga and all the Fifty Shades fans.
Tola Talks about the new Justin Bieber video, the suitcase in San Francisco carrying body parts, the cheating Jockey using an electric shock device, and it’s Throwback Thursday so Rich takes us back to the highlights of 1973 – including the great racehorse Secretariat & The Godfather.
