This podcast is all about this statement ~ "Be The Teacher You Needed." It's a simple statement, with a huge mindset shift. Growing up I didn't have the right "teachers" in my life. I wish I would have had people to guide me, inform me, and educate me on what was REALLY going on. So, I decided that I had to FIND these "teachers" and learn from them. And I use this podcast as a way of reminding myself of these truths that I've learned, and hopefully along the way I can remind you, or even teach you if you're open to learning.

In my day-to-day life I am a husband, father, investor, digital marketer, podcaster, radio host, vlogger, public speaker and lifelong learner.

DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a professional educator or teacher, but I am my own teacher. I learn through others and teach myself to remember their lessons.

More about DDP Yoga:

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!"

DDP Yoga combines the very best of yoga, old-school calisthenics, sports rehabilitation therapy and dynamic resistance to create one of the most effective fitness plans in existence today. It allows anyone to:

  • Get a kick-ass cardio workout
  • Increase flexibility
  • Strengthen core muscles
  • Experience almost no joint impact

What Makes DDPY Different Than Traditional Yoga and Other Fitness Programs?

What separates DDP Yoga from all other kinds of yoga is not just that it is fronted by a celebrity, or that the program combines yoga positions and calisthenics with physical therapy principles, or even that it has an interactive app that lets its users do the workouts from anywhere, but that DDPY is something that anybody at any age or skill level can do. Unlike traditional yoga, DDP Yoga isn't just stretching, it's stretching and strengthening your muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

DDP Yoga may have a strong celebrity following (e.g. Darius Rucker, Chris Jericho, A.J. Styles, Gabriel Iglesias), but the program is rooted in adaptability and “making it your own.” Finding the motivation to start doing DDPY is often the major hurdle for people, as it may entail trying things that were not originally part of their lifestyle. In addition to steadily completing the workouts, followers of DDPY are encouraged to reconsider their diets and overall attitude. When following all of these concepts, results are nearly guaranteed. Just ask military veteran Arthur Boorman , who previously walked with crutches and leg braces, or Jared Mollenkopf, who lost around 300 pounds in a little over a year.
