Media Mogul Russell Simmons Opens Yoga And Wellness Center


CELEBRITY BUSINESSMAN RUSSELL SIMMONS IS LAUNCHING A HUGE YOGA SHOPPING WELLNESS CENTER IN WEST HOLLYWOOD. TWO STORES, 8000 SQUARE FEET AND OF COURSE HE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN YOGA FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS. HE IS HERE TO TELL US ABOUT THIS NEW CENTER. WELCOME. IT’S NOT JUST A CENTER, IT’S REALLY GOING TO BE SORT OF A SENSE OF COMMUNITY. YOU WANT TO WELCOME PEOPLE INTO THE YOGA PRACTICE. MILLIONS OF AMERICANS PRACTICE YOGA, BUT THEY PRACTICE POSES, BUT YOGA IS EIGHT POTS. IT’S A SCHOOL OF YOGA SCIENCE. WE WILL HAVE HEATED YOGA POSES AND THE REST, HOT YOGA, AS PEOPLE TRADITIONALLY REFER TO IT, BUT IT WILL NOT ONLY BE THE PRACTICE BUT WE WILL HAVE A DEVOTIONAL PRACTICE. I THINK ALL THE PEOPLE WHO PRACTICE IN LA, A NUMBER OF THEM ARE INTERESTED IN THE HOLISTIC PRACTICE OF YOGA. ONCE YOU LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOGA, THEN INSPIRED TO LEARN MORE. IT IT INSPIRES YOU TO GO TO PRACTICE EVERY DAY BECAUSE THAT MOVING PRAYER IS SOMETHING THAT LIFTS YOU UP AND CHANGES YOUR LIFE. IT’S THE REASON PEOPLE BECOME MORE PRODUCTIVE. THEY ARE GREATER GIVERS BECAUSE OF YOGA AND GOOD GIVERS ARE GREAT GUTTERS AND THE CYCLE OF BECOMING A BETTER PERSON AND MOVING TOWARD A STATE OF YOGA SPEEDS UP. WE ARE ALL GOING THERE, LIKE IT OR NOT, WE ALL WANT TO ACHIEVE A STATE A STATE OF YOGA WHICH IS CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS, NIRVANA. THIS IDEA OF GOD CONSCIOUSNESS, THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF YOGA, A STATE OF YOGA. THE PHYSICAL PRACTICE IS A GREAT AID IN MOVING US TOWARD THAT. I THINK WHEN PEOPLE LEARN MORE ABOUT IT IT’LL BE TWICE AS INSPIRING AS JUST THROWING THEIR BODY AROUND. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT TO START THE MOMENT THEY YOU HAVE THIS BEAUTIFUL SPACE, VERY BIG, WEST HOLLYWOOD. IT LOOKS A LITTLE BIT LIKE AN ASHRAM YOU WALK IN AND HEAR DEVOTIONAL MUSIC, IT’S GOING TO BE FUN. WE ARE GOING TO TEACH, IT’S GOING TO BE FUN. SANDRA: IT IS HOLLYWOOD AFTERWHILE. IT SHOULD BE FUN AND INSPIRING, AND IT SHOULD BE PREACHY, BUT YOU SHOULD LEARN, AND WHEN YOU COME OUT OF CHURCH, YOU FEEL A CERTAIN WAY. AFTER YOU RUN OR WORKED OUT, YOU FEEL A CERTAIN WAY. WHEN. WHEN YOU PUT THIS INSPIRING SPEECH WITH THIS PHYSICAL PRACTICE, YOU COME OUT LIKE A LIGHTBULB. THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO GIVE PEOPLE BECAUSE IMAGINE IF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO PRACTICE REALLY LEARNED MORE ABOUT YOGA, THAN THEY WOULD ALL BE MORE COMPASSIONATE AND MORE GIVING AND MORE LOVING. SANDRA: WE NEED THAT, RIGHT. THEN YOU CHANGE THE VIBRATION. THAT’S WHY I CHANGE THE LOCATION I CHOSE. 9200 SUNSET. I REMEMBER WHEN I TAUGHT OPRAH AND ELLEN DEGENERATES TO MEDITATE. THEY TAUGHT MILLIONS. THIS PLACE WHICH IS A VERY TRENDY LOCATION, IT’S THE ENTRANCE OF SOHO HOUSE, IT’S THE THE MOST TRENDY PLACE IN L.A. WE PUT IT THERE BECAUSE WE WANT THOSE PEOPLE WITH THE BIG MOUTHS TO GET INSPIRED AND TO SHARE THAT INSPIRATION. THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR POLITICAL CHOICES, OUR SOCIAL CHOICES, WE ARE ARE ANIMAL ACTIVISTS, FOR SURE. WE DON’T WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE KILLING OF 200 BILLION ANIMALS ONLY TO DESTROY THE PLANET EMPLOYEES AND ITS INHABITANTS. WE SPEAK OF THE FIRST OF THE EIGHT PARTS OF YOGA, THIS IS THE FIRST PART OF THE EIGHT PARTS OF YOGA. NON- FARMING. NO PERSON WHO UNDERSTANDS KIND OF ABUSE WE PUT ON ANIMALS AND HOW THAT TAXES OUR BODIES IN THE PLANET WANTS TO PARTICIPATE. FOR US, WE TALK A A LITTLE BIT ABOUT BEING VEGAN BECAUSE IT’S VERY IMPORTANT. IT’S A LOT MORE THAN JUST EXERCISE. THAT’S FOR SURE. IT’S A MOVEMENT. I’M BUILDING THIS BECAUSE FOR 20 YEARS I PRACTICED AND IN NEW YORK I HAD MY GURUS AND WE HAD A PRACTICE THAT WAS DEVOTIONAL. IN L.A. WE HAVE MANY, MANY YOGA STUDIOS, BUT I’M I’M BUILDING ONE THAT TEACHES YOGA. IT OPENS THIS WEEK. SANDRA: FOR MORE INFORMATION AND
