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.
And since I’ll be leaving this blazing hot town for another great American city (hint: it’s a mile high), I spent the past few days as a wide eyed tourist visiting world class destinations like the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, Reunion Tower, the Dallas World Aquarium and Klyde Warren Park. Not to mention revisiting a few of my favorite spots including the Dallas Farmers Market and of course, the funky streets of Deep Ellum.
So until we meet again, I’ll miss you Dallas. All the best to everyone who braved a super hot summer and to all those returning from Montana!
Get your workout in y’all…and I’ll see you in Denver.

If there’s one piece of advice I can give – other than workout everyday and live by Yoga principles to build a strong body clear mind – it’s these three words:
Explore the world.
I just spent the past three days in Vancouver, Canada exploring a plethora of neighborhoods like Gastown, Downtown, Coal Harbor, West End, Davie Village, Yaletown, Kitsilano and Mt. Pleasant. An amazing 25 miles worth of walking around one of the most beautiful, clean, vibrant and fashionable cities I’ve ever lived or visited. There’s been quite a few.
In Vancouver you’ll find tons of great shops and eateries and cool street fashion that had me people watching as much as checking out the sleek modern architecture that’s everywhere.
There’s also tons of little parks and beaches and public art that seem to pop-up out of nowhere. Like the A-maze-ing Laughter in Morton Park consisting of 14 enormous bronze statues – in all different poses – of a shirtless guy laughing hysterically. And what a great way to get your daily workout in. By kicking-the-bricks, as we used to say back in my NYC real estate days.
Speaking of which, Vancouver also has that international cosmopolitan feel, much like Manhattan and Chicago. Plus, the hi-rise apartment building where I stayed had one of those old-school Universal weight machines and some dumbbells, which came in handy every morning. Add to that a yoga class, or better yet, a free 30-minute Tola Yoga class, and voila, you’re set!
So pack your bags, pick your destination, and do a little exploring on your own.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Here’s a compilation of me introducing Chicago’s major tourist attractions including Navy Pier, Wrigley Field, the Mag Mile and the beaches of Lake Michigan. It’s where history meets trivia, meets fitness & Yoga and more.
We filmed YogaStyles of RICH and the Almost Famous: Chicago during the sweltering summer of 2016, and had a blast the last day of filming at the Damen Silos & Ohio Street Beach…when temperatures reached 108 degrees.
Thanks for watching and have a wonderful holiday! Peace – R
