Greetings from Austin

Another day, another workout…in another great American city:

Austin, Texas

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. As well, you’ll probably catch me hosting live entertainment events or performing my standup comedy or podcasting Tola Talks on the internet.

Because life is all about the journey while relentlessly pursuing your passion, regardless of where it takes you. No doubt.

Have an amazing Father’s Day everyone, and get your workout in!

Peace – R

Hosting Three Awesome Shows in our Summer Series

In addition to teaching free Tola Yoga classes & lessons LIVE on Periscope plus producing a Reality TV show Pilot ~ awesome news to be announced next week ~ I’m really enjoying the benefits of hosting Stand-up Comedy and Live Music showcases at Two Hearted Queen.

Because entertaining all kinds of Chicagoans with comedy and music is really awesome, not to mention Stand-up Comedy makes you better at everything. Just like Yoga!  See you soon – R

Eat, Drink & Laugh…Father’s Day Show at Flappers

The great Roseanne Barr once said, “Stand-up is my therapy…I’m just really pissed off!”

flappersFollowing suit with the “working-class domestic goddess” (perhaps not as pissed off), my new material for this Sunday’s show at Flappers Comedy Club will include jokes about Wall Street, sobriety, Yoga, homeless people, marriage and some recent news that’s ripe for the Get Your Shit Together Award – previously awarded everyday on Tola Talks.
