Anyone who’s active in social media has probably seen this video of Arthur Boorman, a former paratrooper that found amazing success with bodily transformation through ‘DDP Yoga’. It’s a very inspirational video that speaks towards many who struggle to find their footing on the path to fitness. Even though this is a great story, there’s so much more to DDP Yoga than just a viral video!
As a former collegiate athlete and someone that enjoys working out rigorously, I know that injuries and muscular tension can hinder performance. What if there’s a better way to address this instead of working around issues or painfully trying to work through them? What if you could eliminate them?! Yes, it’s possible!
DDP Yoga isn’t just for folks that are looking to lose weight. Sure, that viral video spoke that message, but it can also help improve the following key components of what it means to be ‘fit’: Breathing Control, Balance, Coordination, Core Strength, Spinal Stability, Increased Flexibility, Improved Blood Flow, Reduced Tension, and so many more.
At the same time, the thing that really sets DDP Yoga apart from other forms of yoga is that it’s also a strength building workout and cardio session all at once! Impossible with yoga, you say? Just ask anyone that’s done the workouts or trained with DDP personally… that is if they didn’t drown in a puddle of their own sweat! DDP Yoga has its roots in the Ashtanga and Vinyasa styles of yoga, otherwise known as the American style of ‘power yoga’. It’s a flowing working, constantly moving, constantly challenging the practitioner with new movements, not just static poses while trying to find one’s inner peace.
A typical week of working out for me involves lifting weights, mountain biking, road biking, and incorporating DDP Yoga into the mornings or days off in order to lengthen the spine and offset any increased tension which could lead to injury. You don’t have to try DDP Yoga, or any yoga for that matter, but if you’re looking for ways to hold back the hands of time this is one workout that you can’t afford to not check out.
