Welcome to the 5MTS stage, Diamond Dallas Page (DDP),  an American professional wrestler, fitness instructor, motivational speaker and actor. In the course of his wrestling career, which spanned two decades, he has wrestled for mainstream wrestling promotions World Championship Wrestling (WCW),[1] the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE),[1] and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA)

Diamond Dallas Page originally developed DDP Yoga for athletes like himself who had suffered years of injuries due to high-impact sports. For the first 42 years of his life, Dallas was a guy who “wouldn’t be caught dead” doing yoga, or anything like it.

When he ruptured his L4 and L5 spinal discs during the height of his professional wrestling career, he was so desperate to keep his childhood dream alive, he was willing to try anything. So he tried yoga for the first time in his life.

Because Dallas (DDP) had so much experience in many other areas of fitness, he quickly started mixing elements of yoga with his rehab and traditional calisthenics. For almost a decade, DDP has refined his program and has become a master at teaching it to others, as well as motivating individuals to believe that anything is possible with dedication and hard work.

Along the way, Dallas learned that very deconditioned men and women could do DDP Yoga as well — he was amazed to see stories of people doing DDP Yoga losing literally hundreds of pounds! As Dallas puts it, “weight loss just happens to be a really AWESOME side effect of DDP Yoga!”
