Rockstar Health & Fitness EXTRA With IGGY AZA  0

 

Having spent my entire adult life in the music business, I have seen thousands of artist showcases.  I have to admit, I am jaded and it is not easy for an artist to really blow me away. I went to see Iggy Azalea perform a few weeks ago and all I can say is OMG!!  Not only did she blow me away, I have not stopped talking about her since the show.

Iggy moved to the US from Australia when she was 16 years old.  She did whatever it took to work hard and build a life around music.  She cleaned hotel rooms, worked in restaurants and during that time she was continuing to work on her music.  Her incredible beauty is breathtaking and it’s no surprise that she is a top model for the Wilhelmina agency.  But it’s her live performance and amazing musical talent that will blow you away!!  Her ability to rap and dance left me speechless.

Her body is a beautiful work of art, a true inspiration. Her fashion style, on top of everything, takes it all to another level. I couldn’t connect with her fast enough to learn her healthy secrets and how she keeps her body in such beautiful shape.

The video for her single “Work” is a must see and the song is perfect for your workout playlist. Here is what I learned from Iggy when we were hanging out at KIIS-FM. Keep an eye out for Iggy Azalea…..she is destined to be a superstar and definitely has what it takes!!

Lori Rischer Recaps The Awareness Film Festival  0

The Awareness Film Festival in Santa Monica was incredible.  It was such an honor to host the closing night program and to be a part of an event that is striving to make a difference. As part of a healthy lifestyle, dedicating your personal time to issues important to you helps create balance and gratitude.  Thank you to, Heal One World, for putting together so many wonderful films that create awareness on important issues.  The first step in effecting change is through awareness.  I was fortunate to see and learn about a few select movies that I highly recommend….such as:

See Me: The movie takes place in a South African orphanage where the kids were given disposable cameras with which they then took pictures of their lives.  We get to see the world through their eyes and WOW…..they have so much pride and gratitude.  Their creativity and excitement in using a camera was heartwarming.
G-Dog.  There are no words to describe how moved I was by this movie.  I have been a volunteer working with kids in South LA for over 10 years so this was close to my heart.  The movie is about Father Greg Boyle,who started Homeboy Industries to help gang members reform and rebuild their lives.  He works by a powerful idea: “Nothing Stops a Bullet like a Job.”  Over the years, his unstoppable compassion has turned around the lives of thousands of gang members. He has come up with an international model of positive change…that really works.  He teaches us that a little compassion and love go a long way.  This is a must see movie!!
Awakening World: Have you ever wondered about the purpose of life or what is love? That’s what filmmaker Sebastian Siegel sets out to uncover through interviews with renowned authors, leaders and globally recognized artists.  I had a profound moment of clarity during this movie.  Years ago, my father was in a very serious and horrific accident that left him in ICU for weeks.  While he was lying there hooked up to all kinds of tubes he realized the meaning of life was about “who you love and who loves you.”  In this movie, one of my heroes, Marianne Williamson, said the exact same thing.  I was incredibly moved and reminded about the power of love.
One Track Heart, The Story of Krishna Das:  Since my world is based on music and yoga, he is an icon to me.  His music is in every yoga class I teach and once helped me out of a panic attack on an overnight train in India.  He heals the world through his music.  It was fascinating to learn about his struggles and his journey.  Not too mention, he was once the lead singer of Blue Oyster Cult….who knew?
In addition, I was moved by the awards ceremony that I also hosted.  Being able to meet such amazing people that in their own way are making a difference, was a powerful experience.  We need more people like them to open our eyes and our hearts so we can take action.  Action to create positive change and help others along the way.
Here are the award winning movies:
