ATLANTA, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Professional Wrestling Champion and self-proclaimed "yoga bad-ass" Diamond Dallas Page is hitting the road to share his revolutionary fitness system. Page will be hosting DDP YOGA workouts across the country - and he just might be bringing his big, bold brand of yoga to a city near you.
DDP YOGA's "Bad Ass" Tour will kick off in Midland, TX on March 23rd, followed by an appearance in Nashville, TN on March 29th at the Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Festival, and a hometown stop in East Rutherford, NJ on April 7th to coincide with WrestleCon. Before each class, participants will have a chance to talk with Page about why he created this unique program and the benefits behind it.
Page is on a mission to spread his effective method of fitness and nutrition to motivate people who want to take control of their health, but are not quite sure how to achieve their goals. DDP YOGA is designed to help everyone work at his or her own level, and reach a personal goal one step at a time. While DDP YOGA incorporates some of the traditional philosophies of yoga, it is distinct from the conventional forms of practice. The DVD series features 11 workouts of progressive intensity; Page leads each session in a style one would expect from a former brawler—with a rock music background, salty commentary, and some inventive new names for familiar poses, such as the Diamond Cutter, Alligator, Hood Ornament and Dead Bug.
"I didn't develop DDP YOGA for yogis. DDP YOGA is its own animal; if yoga was a bicycle, DDP YOGA would be a Harley," said Page. From former couch potatoes to professional wrestlers such as Chris Jericho and Jake "The Snake" Roberts, devotees are those who, like Page himself, thought that they would never even try yoga but are using the program to change their bodies along with their lives. To date, tens of thousands of people have enjoyed the benefits of DDP YOGA and classify themselves as "part of the team."
In fact, DDP YOGA provides an online support network aptly named TEAM DDP YOGA, made up of almost 17,000 members who help guide users through their transition to a healthy lifestyle. Members are encouraged to participate by sharing their personal experiences -- how the program has helped them overcome weight and flexibility issues, past injuries and even addiction. A few even get a personal call of support from DDP when they share a moment of challenge or a compelling story.
