    Thank you so much for inspiring Arthur. I’m a survivor of child abuse, and my mission is to raise awareness for and inspire other teen survivors of child abuse. Just a few moments ago, my boyfriend sent me this video, and I am in tears. I founded the No Longer Silenced Movement as my mission, and watching this man makes me believe that I can do anything. So thank you thank you thank you!!!!

    I just saw Arthur’s video and it was so inspirational, I could hardly believe the drastic difference. I’m now very interested in trying this to get my health back into proper alignment. I’m young, 24 years young, and I’ve got a very bad eating habit as well as no real knowledge of exercising or how to work out my muscles. I’m also a smoker, and I can’t run because the years of cigarettes and lack of exercising just took its toll on me… Anyway, I am curious, is there any specific diet to guide me along with the DDP Yoga exercises or tips on what to stay away from? I need to lose weight and get my health back, I need to be able to go out and enjoy myself without being tired and exhausted in a very short time.

    A Message for Arthur…

    Arthur,

    I just watched your video on YouTube. I am still wiping the tears from my eyes. What an amazing inspiration you are! I have been practicing yoga for about 8 months now and it has been transformational for me, but you, my friend are a true warrior. How brave of you to share your story!

    I have shared your video with the Moksha yoga community in Charlottetown PEI (Canada) where I live. Today, I dedicate my practice to you.

    Namaste,
    Michelle

    Arthur’s Story.

    Dallas… I just wanted to write you and thank you for believing in Arthur. It is people like you who really make a difference. I also wanted to say that I find him a complete inspiration. Although you were such a big help, a lot of what he has achieved has to come from an inner fighting spirit. I loved the YouTube video.

    I was once 370+ pounds. That’s a monstrous amount of weight even though I am 6 feet tall. To date I have lost close to 180 pounds. I started with yoga…. then backpacking with a 40 pound pack in the wilderness and paddling a canoe of multi-day trips. I learned how to eat healthy while still enjoying the odd indulgence. And…. on Saturday I ran my first 5K race (and raised over $1500 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). You see, being fit is my medicine – I am Type 2 diabetic. I was once on insulin but no longer take anything to control my blood sugar.

    And… here is the link to my story about my first race… http://findingmyinnerme.wordpress.com/2012/04/29/been-there-done-that-have-the-race-shirt-to-prove-it/

    Keep believing and inspiring… it helps more people than you realize. I was having a bit of post-race blues… seeing what you did for Arthur and what he did for himself has inspired me to get on with things. Thank you… both of you.

    My best to Arthur and yourself.
    Laurie Ann

    Arthur could have been my husband thomas, Tom has 6 inches of steel in his spine, a reconstructed shoulder, 2 bad knees and a deteriorating hip. he is a type 2 diabetic on insulin, has severe low T,and probable heart damage. typically he wears full leg braces and a back brace , walks with a cane(very limited distance) he has severe sleep apnea and is over 300 pounds. I am also disabled and am forced to push a wheelchair to get him around.
    Tom is depressed right now as well. he earned 3 degrees (including a Masters) in half the time and cant find a job. age and disabilities trump the Veterans advantage every time.
    He is in constant pain and has given up, though he wont admit it. I was at my wits end until i saw this story. please please, reach out and help my army veteran spouse to find himself again. he needs something to believe in right now. He needs to pull out of his darkness and begin something new. Arthur made me a believer. thank you so much!

    Message for Arthur and Rick,

    Arthur… you sir… are a freaking legend. I find it difficult to express how much respect I have for you.
    I wish you all the things you want out of life. You are truly deserving.
    You are a true hero. I hope every child in the world sees this video. The belief in one self is the most powerful driving force for achieving your goals. I always knew this. Thanks for proving to me that I am right.

    Rick… I applaud you for believing in Arthur. For helping him succeed. My respect for you is equally as high.

    Thanks guys. You made a difference in a lot of peoples lives. You can bet on that.

    Arthur, I was told I would never walk again due to a spinal cord injury back in 1997. I am now walking with a walker. No one wanted to help me except 2 personal trainers that have became my brothers. I would love to speak with you and share my story with you.

    To Arthur,

    First you make the ultimate sacrifice to defend our country and our way of life. Then you get back up and fight and show all of us that no matter what, just keep on going. I don’t know if I have been touched by one story this much in a long time.

    To DDP,

    I used to love to watch you wrestle, I always watched with my daughter who just loved you. You made us laugh, made us cheer and more than a few times made us wince. That being said, what you did with and for Arthur is more amazing than anything I ever saw.

    God Bless and Good Health To You Both.

    Hello… I am a 54 yr old woman with 1 total knee replacement due to severe osteo arthritus. I am 5’8′, 285 lbs very overweight w/ severe back issues, & getting worse. I was wondering if this yoga is something I can do w/ a knee replacement & back issues. I can’t really kneel any more. I want so much to believe that I can lose wt, get stronger & kick butt but I’ve tried so many diets that don’t work & cause me to be more depressed as the wt piles back on. I can’t even take my dogs for a walk which I love to do. And I used to be athletic in school. Now I feel like a failure. Can you offer me some help? TY!
    I was inspired to write to you after seeing Arthur’s story. It’s incredible & a true testament to him & you!

    A young man shared Arthur’s video with me on Google+ and as I watched it I began to identify with him very closely. I had to share his video not only on my own G+ page but also on Facebook and the following message is what I included with the post….A young man on my Google+ page just shared this with everyone and as I watched it I realized that the man in the video and I have very much in common. Like him I also have multiple injuries, I sustained mine in a car accident and like him I too have given up on myself but thanks to this man, Arthur Boorman and the young man who shared this video with me I now have the hope and motivation I need to move forward. This video made me cry and I am still choked up with tears as I am sharing it now with you. I’ve known I need to do something to help myself but I am too terrified of injuring myself further or making my already chronic pain even worse. Not any more because now I know that I can do it because this man did it. He is such an inspiration to me and I know I’m going to have times when I want to give up again but now I can’t because Arthur didn’t. Thank you Arthur Boorman!…My new motto is “I can’t give up because Arthur didn’t!”

    Arthur- You’re video is indeed very inspirational and I admire the effort and tireless determination you devoted to changing your life. I’m so glad that you were able to not only walk again, but be active in general! One thing I noticed from the video is your tennis shoes. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of barefooting shoes, but they work so well to develop stronger leg and back muscles, improve balance and overall health. My husband had horrible knee and back problems and was on crutches because of it for awhile. After he started wearing his Vibram barefooting shoes however, his body strengthened and healed. Please don’t think I’m trying to push a product on you. I just see how committed you are to strengthening your body and wanted to share something that I’ve personally seen help tremendously with that effort. The best of luck to you and thank you for serving our country!

    I don’t normaly comment on videos or success stories, to be honest they all seem the same and reminds me of how I keep giving up on myself after facing the first challenge, I have just watched the video for Arthur and his rehabilitation, what a guy!! Credit to him, and to you for not turning him away. It just shows what can be achieved with dedication and heart. What a turn around! Time for me to stop been a defeatist I think.
    Take care and thank you for this!

    Just finished watching the inspirational transformation video on YouTube. This story is so touching and amazing, it’s almost unbelievable. Not only has this given me motivation to lose weight, it’s reminded me that we ALL can achieve things that seem so out of reach, nothing is impossible. Congratulations on your transformation, Arthur. What you have achieved should be used to teach others that we can accomplish anything if all we do… is simply believe.

    Hi Diamond Dallas and Arthur! Total *Wow!* times a million!

    It’s just beautiful what belief can do, when one person believes so much and the other person receives all of that belief. But Arthur had to do that work! So much persistent work! I have a little fitness blog, but I’m going to post this video for my readers.

    I fell over those exact same ways when I started yoga and I learned how to do headstands! I toppled over these ways at the gym–with some gym guys actually making fun of me! But they also saw the end results of my success! Yay us, Arthur, for allowing ourselves to fall over and over for our cause. If either of you *superstars* have time, please stop over to say “hi.”

    Arthur,

    Thank you for sharing your story. I saw your video on youtube this week and shared it with a young man at the high school where I work. He was paralyzed from the waist down in December 2011 in an accident. This young man is personally one of the most inspirational people I know…at only 16 years old. BUT, he gets down and I knew this video was just what he needed to remember that ANYTHING is possible. He now watches your video every day as motivation for himself. THANK YOU for sharing with us all!!!

    Hi Dallas & Arthur,

    The video of Arthur’s transformation had me weeping — not teary-eyed but practically sobbing. :) One of the most poignant and inspiring stories I have ever seen. Words cannot fully express my gratitude…thank you for putting it out there for all of us to see. [I’ll be buying the DVD within a few days!]

    I don’t know if you’ll actually be able to reply to this note, but I’m wondering if Arthur did the yoga workout every day, every other day, or what his frequency of practice was that helped him to have such rapid change.

    Thank you!

    It’s real,isn’t it? I saw Arthur… I need that in my life. I need to be all I can be… I need to be all I SHOULD be. All I dream of being. My earliest memory is being told by my parents I was ugly, fat. Mizzy witch is what they called me. I AM fat… NOW… I see me as ugly. I am 51. I want so much more. I want to see myself as my 11 year old daughter and 15 year old son and husband see me…. beautiful!! I have NO self confidence… a very low self-esteem and I KNOW it all comes from within. But I WANT to SEE me as beautiful. I WANT to love ME! I can’t. I may never. Please… show me. Teach me. Help me. Please.

    To Arthur and Dallas,

    As a person with disabilities who is making a stab at being an athlete, I’d like to thank both of you personally for all of your hard work on and off the screen.

    To Arthur – We may come from different backgrounds, I was born with a disability, and have had many corrective surgeries.. I will never look down on your fight, or anyones fight.. I just wanted to say thank you for not giving up, and for realizing what a gift a functioning body really is. It hurts to fall when all you want to do is simply stand, thank you for getting back up. “I may not be able to do it today, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do it tomorrow.” Jesus, man.. you brought tears to me eyes. Every time I’ve looked up from the floor to see the edge of my bed, that defeat would close my eyes. It takes real strength to stand up, again and again. All wars are horrible, but even more so when you are fighting your own body. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Keep your feet under you and the wind at your back.

    To Dallas – Thank you for not saying “I can’t help this man.” Thank you for showing the kind of support a person in this situation needs.. not coddling, or telling them that they’re “Doing so well for what you are!” but rather, thank you for allowing this man to prove his own strength, and by being the person to say “Yes, you can do this.” You’re an amazing athlete, a person can look at you and realize that.. but being an amazing person, that isn’t so easy. The people in your profession are giants of humankind, and it is always an inspiration to see one of you and say “I could do that if I just had a chance.” Thank you for giving Arthur that chance. You’re a good guy.

    Peace, to the both of you.. and remember, more eyes than you realize are watching you, and you’ve brought more smiles and tears of happiness to the worlds face than you’ll know. Thank you both.

    I have a question and didnt know where to leave it. I saw the video everyone else has seen and it got me thinking maybe it could help me too. Last year I took a bad fall rock climbing, I broke my back and nearly lost the use of my legs. I walk with a limp and have constant back pain. I still have physical therapy but I want to be done and get my life back. I use to go on a 15 mile hike with a 40 pound backpack on my back and now I can barely stand for an hour. I dont have to say that this injury has impacted my life greatly and has stopped me from getting jobs I really want. So.. is this type of yoga safe for me to do?

    Thank you so much for inspiring Arthur. The video of Arthur on YouTube really inspired me to get back into the gym. Last year I joined a gym, I was doing really good for six months. Then something turned really bad for my mother health. After that i stop going to the gym for five to six months. After seeing this video of Arthur really hit home with me it got me to go back. When I start losing the pounds I was 360 pounds now I’m at 290 pound. Thank you again diamond Dallas pagie

    To Arthur,
    Your story is inspiring. You were able to touch millions of lives. Even though not everyone can relate to the trials you went through, we all know what it’s like to be tested and feel hopeless. Your journey served as a reminder to me that we are more resilient and stronger than what we are sometimes led to believe. When you served our country, you were a hero then. And you are a hero now. You did something that only very special people can do–which is instill hope in the hearts of many.

    Thank you.

    Can you lose the weight without buying the heart monitor and ipod? I’m on a real tight budget and can’t afford the extra expenses, so if I can go without the extras that would help me out alot! Also, in the past I’ve invested on other fitness dvd’s but very short lived, total of 3 various fitness programs. I’m wondering, is it me or is it the work-out programs that are not keeping my interest? Because of my previous experiences, I’m a little reluctant in buying this program. I don’t have a problem losing the weight, it’s keeping it off that’s been my long time struggle and as I’ve been getting older it’s been harder and harder to lose the weight!

    Dear DDP and Arthur,
    Someone shared the video about Arthur with me on e-mail, at a particularly critical moment for me: My 33-year-old sister has recently been injured in a terrible auto crash and in a particularly terrible constellation of events become aphasic and paraplegic. She is in rehabilitation in Israel now. I would do anything to help her to improve her muscular functions. (I know Arthur’s story and injury are completely different from my sister’s; but also that some improvement for my sister must be possible.)
    If anyone here has a suggestion where to start, I would very much appreciate.
    Starf

    Arthur, what you did amaze me! Im trying to loose 150 lbs right now and i watch your video at least once a day to remind me that anything is possible. Thank you for sharing your story with the world. You’ve touched alot of lives including mine!!! DDP, you’re awesome!! If i could afford to buy your workout, i would in a second. The least i can do is tell you how much i admire what you did for arthur and everything else you accomplished. Keep going and for now I’ll keep watching the arthur video every day to remind myself that anything is possible when you work hard and own your life!

    Dear DDP,

    Well..I have a question. What DVD should I get if you are a little over 200 pounds and I am 31 year old female? I also wanted to know if the DVD or the manuals has examples of meals? Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Maricarmen G.

    Hi Paige,
    a very very long time ago I worked for you at a club you managed in Fort Myers called Norma Jeans. I was playing in a local band that played the club all the time.
    I just watched your video and was so blown away by the presence of God in the video.
    You are truly a warrior of the Almighty One.
    Be blessed my friend. I will be praying for continued strength and vision in your life.
    Your Awesome bro……..All the best……….Rick Morales

    The video of Arthur’s transformation has sparked a lively discussion among members of some discussion groups I belong to, related to helping patients with chronic pain who have become debilitated, to find their inner strength and hope so that they can participate in (or really, take charge of) their recovery. I noticed that the tags used in the YouTube posting of this video do not include terms that a person in pain might use when searching for videos on YouTube, and I would like to suggest that you add metatags for “pain”, “disability”, “workers compensation”, “social security”, “benefits”, “depression”, “anxiety” and “obesity”, so that people with these issues who are searching for help might stumble upon Arthur’s story and find a different kind of help than what they thought they were looking for.

    Hi Guys,
    I’m at the last straw now, I’ve pretty much lost everything I own and a majority of who I am, or was because of the pain and the drugs I am on from a fall in 05. That was the latest injury but before it was 14 back procedures from 2 ripped open discs, 25 years of pain and i was finally out of pain, well for 4 years anyway. Once I fell in 05 it has not been pretty. Now, I find myself in more pain then before.My back has failed again because of my left leg being shorter then my right by more then an inch…even with the drugs,I’ve lost almost everything and almost homeless.
    I fully understand about the yoga, training and workouts, I was a swimmer for 15 years. I’ve been in pain..alot severe since I was 24. I am 53 now and I just cant deal with the pain anymore, nor the drugs. I cant see how,with the nerve damage from shattered bones can the pain go away by just being in shape. Even if I concentrate and focus. If someone would like talk to me about the pain and how to continue to live with it I’d be more then willing to listen. I DO get this tho. I’m just affraid of more pain. I still try to work construction as I have since 19. I just want to go back to work cause thats what i love and reclaim some of my life back. Help..please..

    I think you are an inspiration!
    I am writing about my husband Mark. He is a disabled veteran. He was in the USMC form 1994-1998. Then in February 2001, he join the US Army. He was there until July 2005. Like I said, he is a disabled veteran. He has chronic low back pain, knee pain, leg pain, shoulder pain, (all over pain really) PTSD, anger management, very overweight…. as well as other things….

    The reason why I am writing to you is because I want (need) to know if this would be ther program for him. I talked to his psychiatrist about yoga & she recommended this program. But she told me to make sure this would be ok for him to do. Please contact me or my husband Mark. my email is marksjen95@yahoo.com

    thank you so much!!!

    Hey, Paige

    This is kind of a weird thing, but I’ve always felt first impressions were important. I just hope it doesn’t come out as awkward or rambling or what have you.

    A few months ago, at the Wizard World Convention in Philadelphia, we briefly met. I was wearing a Roddy Piper shirt from They Live and stood in line for an autograph, before disappearing. Then, I bumped into you a second time, and again disappeared.

    The fact of the matter is I was going crazy on Chantix to help quit smoking. It did work, but my brain was just firing neurons at random to see what would happen, almost. I pretty much had a full blown anxiety attack. Then got agoraphobic. And there were more side effects down the line I’d rather not even get into. I got it sorted out, but it was a rough ride.

    Now, I’ve always lived by a simple mantra: Nobody’s better than me, and I’m better than nobody. Which, basically means no matter what you’ve accomplished, no matter how much more/less money you have than me, no matter how much more/less intelligent you are than me, etc., you are still a person and you won’t intimidate me, nor will I ever talk down to you. So, when I go bonkers and kind of look like I’m terrified of a dude I idolized, it sticks in my craw.

    I don’t like to make bad first impressions, and you might have completely blown this off or written me off as crazy (which I technically was), but I’ll be damned if I look good, bad, or anything in between without 100% my own merit.

    Thanks for the constant inspiration, and I hope I haven’t made things worse. I just cannot stand a false impression.

    I just watch Arthur Boorman video and I would like to get in contact with him if I could. I work for a health and wellness company and I would love to offer him some free product. We have a wonderful anti-inflammatory product called Nopalea. We would love to get some product in his hands and see if it would help further his journey.

    Arthur Boorman is an inspiration!
    Thank you!

    DDP, I love the program but the products, imho, need a lot of work. I have bought the original 50+ DVD twice and both times the CD stopped playing in my Macbook after fewer than 6 plays. So I tried a different way to get the instruction online from FUGU University and after 2 or three plays now that video stops or skips about every 5 seconds. Luckily at this point I have figured out most of the moves and can do it without the video. To sum up, YRG/DDP Yoga is great but some of the products are ponderous man…just ponderous.

    February 3 of last year I lost my mother suddenly to heart attack. I fell into a severe depression. In early August 2011 a friend suggested we volunteer at an Ironman Triathlon that some friends were going to sign up for and do this year. I had been fighting plantar fasciitis and had a fear of water, and had never attempted to swim. I saw an amputee (below the knee) running the marathon and felt the need to stop whining about my foot pain.

    I registered for the Ironman knowing I had only 1 year to, not only learn to swim, but to become proficient at it. While searching youtube for some motivational videos I ran across the Arthur video. 2 things I heard on this video really stuck with me throughout the year. 1 – Dallas said “How am I going to help this guy”, not “I don’t know if I can”, or “I don’t think I can”… failure was not an option. 2 – Arthur, upon falling out of a yoga position, said “Just because I can’t do it today, doesn’t mean I won’t be able to do it SOME DAY”. That echo’d in my head NUMEROUS times throughout the year when I had found myself unable to swim the distances I felt I needed to be at in order to reach my ultimate goal (2.4 miles is the swim distance in Ironman).

    August 26th with a time of 12:24:31, I became an Ironman. My swim time was 1:18:28.

    Thanks for the motivation!!!!

    I want to challenge DDP to help me lose this weight. I am a 39 y/o woman who had brain surgery at 18 that also had a slight stroke on the operating table. Having partial paralysis on entire lleft side currently a doslocated right knee thats causins more issues.
    I love these drs n shows that tell me to exercise, Go to the Gym when no gym is handicap accessible for me. I can use 4 pieces of equipment but thts all. In 2000 -2001 I lost a whopping 175lbs but in 2003 8 1/2 weeks after my daughter was born I had fell up an escalator where my knee was bent behind my back and dragged up the escalator. I could no longer walk 6 miles a day like I did nor do the hundreds of crunches I once could. I would love to see him help me achieve this! I loved him in the day he was in wrestling.

    Dear Sir, please help Scott Hall. I am a mother of a 30year old who, when he was a boy, wanted to watch wrestling. Well, I wouldn’t let him do it without knowing what was going on myself. So I am a wrestling fan. Not so much now as then … I have been reading about Mr. Hall’s life problems and feel very much like you can help him. Have you ever read “Yoga, Youth and Reincarnation”? This book by Jess Stern talks about a yoga program very much like yours in that he goes into the home of a person who helps him heal himself with yoga. This is the only place I found where I could write to you. Please do not see me as a “kook”. I really feel that you can help this man.
    Thanks for reading this.

    DDP,
    I just want to say thanks for being such an inspiration and for putting on a show every night you went into a ring. I’ve been a longtime fan of your work inside and outside of the ring. I recently ordered DDP Yoga and I hope it helps aid me in my struggles as a wrestler on the indy circuit (as a fun hobby not a career choice at all). Also, I am currently writing a research paper for college regarding pro wrestling and why it is athletic enough to be dubbed a sport. I would love to get your opinion on that topic and possibly some answers to a couple questions? If so, that would be amazing. Thanks for the inspiration and for putting your body on the line day in and day out.

    I have been a Wrestling fan since the mid 80s. I have watched to many of the wrestlers i watched/was a fan of go way before there time. Your the only member of the Jersey Triad still around…still can’t wrap my head around that. You give another avenue to wrestlers that traditional rehab hasn’t worked for. From what I have heard, Jake the snake is making great strides. Hopefully Scott Hall Can do the same. IF you can help the fallen heroes beat their daemons and regain themselves, You’ll be one of the greatest human beings of your generation.

    Dear Diamond Dallas Page
    I am so happy you are doing what you are doing, helping EVERYONE in your “community”. From your brothers and sisters of pro-wrestling to every day Joe’s and Jane’s like myself. I have been a HUGE pro-wrestling fan going on 33 years and you are one of two wrestlers I look up to TO THIS DAY. I would like to humbly ask you for a favor. I would like you to PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Help Tammy Lynn Sytch. I met her at a convention in Framingham, MA. two years ago and was so happy to see her doing so well. She even said “I’m so happy in my life now. I’m feeling well and doing really good now.” Since then, news story after news story of her getting arrest and looking very out of it again. Please help her, or I’m afraid the next story I see in the news and papers will be that she is no longer with us anymore.

    Thank-You, God Bless, and Continue Doing Good,

    ~Matt~

    Hey DDP and Jake! I just watched a vid where you talked to Razor and I gotta tell you, that conversation was touching as hell! You and Jake was always some of my favorite wrestlers along with Razor and the Warrior and I’ve always had this sadness when I see stuff online about you guys. Too many people I looked up to as a kid have gone away too soon! I’m amazed the Warrior is still kickin and bat shit crazy! I love you guys! Not for being wrestlers and entertaining me for decades but for being human and helping each other out. For not letting go of what’s important. I wish there were something that I could do to lend a hand but I hope that you guys will see this comment and it will affirm that you guys are doing the right thing and that we are still watching and we still care. Hell! How old are you guys now? You can’t wrestle til you’re 80! lol Keep up the awesome work and thanks for caring for each other! If you’re ever in Dallas, TX you let me know. We’ll go grab some BBQ!

    Inspiring video I saw recently about a vet with disabilities using your program to overcome them. I am in a similar situation – 11 spinal surgeries, 7 of them post enlistment, and as you can expect, the VA isn’t much help. If I could afford your program, I’d sure give it a try. If for no other reason than to get off some of these psych meds they have me on for ptsd and the methadone/fentanyl/percocet/valium/flexeril cocktail combo they have me taking for pain. Cheers bro, inspiring video nonetheless. A win for one of us is a win for all of us.
