I had no more pain.

14 years ago (2000), I was doing my daily training in the weight pit. I was 187lbs and 6.9% body fat. I was a competitive knock down karate fighter. Doing the last rep of my last set, my back lets go. I take myself immediately to the hospital. Their answer is rest and meds. Fast forward to July 2013, 225+ pounds, chronic back problems, arthritis in both knees and one hip. Training for my 3rd degree Black Belt I took a long weekend vacation. I was checking my boat and my back goes out again for the 3rd time that year. I posted on Facebook two words. “Stupid back”. Shortly after that my friend from Australia, Ralph Burd, contacted me. He was in Mexico and asked me what was going on. I told him my sad tale. He told me he was a t a DDP YOGA retreat and said I should check it out so I did. I searched high and low for bad comments, great comments were easy to come by. I found none and to this day I haven’t found one.

I decided this was something I could do to help my back and knees. I bought the Max Pack, but being in Canada I had to wait several weeks for the DVDs to clear customs and such. So I did “Energy” every day until our Karate Summer Camp. My DVDs arrived just before I left. Being able to put on my own socks again it was great. I have continued on almost daily.

I signed up for the instructor course shortly after it was offered. I placed training DDP YOGA very high in my life. As i went on gaining flexibility and strength I noticed something. I had no more pain. I was beside myself with excitement. Training hard and watching what I was eating and with the help of I made great strides.

With help from guys like Ralph Burd, Matt Owen, Brooks Walls, and Ross Raymond I was able to complete my certification and become the first DDP YOGA Instructor in Canada. To these guys I say thanks for the support and listening when I needed it.

I recently was able to train with Dallas when he visited Canada. I was lucky enough to do training sessions with him as well as chat with him at length. He gave me some great advice and truly cares about people.

I am currently teaching DDP YOGA to the local community through a local fitness club.

Thank you Dallas for helping me own my life!!!
