Whether you’re a big kid, little kid or forever a kid at heart like me, you’ll love it at the Dallas Zoo!
Since my childhood days plus our time filming Zoo Yoga in LA for my Yoga Survival Guide, I’ve always been a fan of zoos. So to all you thrill seekers and families looking for some good old fashion fun in Dallas, get your butts over there and you won’t be disappointed. From Hippos to Cheetahs to Elephants to Crocodiles, you’ll find all types of animals that will surely impress.
Like a moth to a flame, I’ve been drawn to Dallas.
I’m not sure if it’s the richness of early American history dating back to its original settlement as a good trading post in 1839, or the plethora of diverse and interesting neighborhoods like Uptown, Deep Ellum, Bishop Arts District, Downtown, Lower Greenville or the M Streets (where I landed). Or perhaps it’s that cosmopolitan feel along with that “smell the roses” Texan mindset.
Regardless of whatever “it” is, Dallas certainly has me thinking I’ll be here for the rest of the summer. Not that America’s #1 city to live, aka Austin, wasn’t a cool place to explore for a couple of months, not to mention the wonderful staff and yoga students at Castle Hill Fitness who loved Tola Yoga ..thanks everyone, especially Reesa, Autumn, Amy and Kat!
There’s just something about the Big D that reminds me of my Philadelphia roots and tickles my fancy in less than a week.
Have an awesome day everyone, and get your workout in! Peace – R
Hey everyone, come to Austin, Texas and get your Tola Yoga groove on before it’s too late! Because like they say here in The Lone Star State, the only sure thing in life are death and Texas…and now of course, Tola Yoga.
Classes run the month of July and no worries about bringing your mat & towel because they’re provided free of charge. Better yet, use my promo code TOLAYOGA on their website (click HERE) and get a 50% discount of all class passes. Not to mention Castle Hill’s current promotions on spa services including therapeutic massages with aromatherapy, acupuncture featuring Acu-Moxa therapy, skin care and their muscle balancing M.A.T®.
Too good to pass up?
No doubt, especially if you’re visiting from out of town or out of the country for that matter. Because who needs to sweat it out in this 100 degree sweltering Texas heat when you can just take my class.
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!
I’m teaching another Tola Yoga pop-up class today from 2-3p in DTLA (111 W 7th St). So come honor yourself and our fallen heroes with a great workout. And bring your swim suit…we’ll be poolside before (Noon) and after.
Spoiler Alert: it’s my last class in LA for a while. I’m taking Tola Yoga to Austin for the summer so if I don’t see you today, I’ll see in Texas!
