I had to read this book as part of the open book final for my DDP Yoga certification and it was great. Some books have an immediate impact on your life. It changes your way of thinking, your goals, and your focus. This is one of those books.
I started implementing stuff from the book before finishing it. I also started back at the beginning and reread it straight through a second time. The book really blew me away. With so much useful information that even the DDP Yoga dvd’s don’t tell you. I think this book should be a must for anyone starting DDP Yoga or just doing yoga in general.

These 15 people range from retired military, to musicians. All kinds of people have seen improvement in their health and life through following DDP’s programs. Musicians, retired wrestlers, pro wrestlers, pro ball players, and regular guys and gals like me and you!
