This book (and the DVDs bought separately) got me to try yoga. And in this incarnation, I like it. I'm a very overweight diabetic who desperately needs to get fit, and I was impressed by the story of disabled Gulf War veteran Arthur, who used YRG to not only lose 157 lbs but regain the use of his body after being told he'd never walk without crutches again.

Well, Arthur is one of the guys demonstrating the moves in the book and on the DVD. If he can do it, so can I. Sure the book is firmly aimed

This is not your regular yoga book! But it's not a joke either. It's a serious workout. “Yoga For Regular Guys: The Best Damn Workout on the Planet” by three time World Champion Wrestler Diamond Dallas Page is a fun book that provides the basics to get a great yoga workout. Page wrote the book with Dr. Craig Aaron and even got Rob Zombie to write the Foreword. I found a copy at a used book store and am very glad I did.

First off, the book is aimed at guys. This should be obvious by the title. Wit

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. Fortunately I happened upon the book by chance. My first introduction to Yoga with Diamond Dallas Page was a Facebook share of the video 'Never, Ever Give Up. Arthur's Inspirational Transformation!' It really blew ...more

I do the DDP Yoga program and I was happy to read the book that long predates the DVDs I use. I was hopeful to learn more in depth about the nutrition and other aspects, but that was minimal. If you haven't done the workout, I highly recommend this book as a beginner's guide. If you are already well ingrained in the program, this might add a little, but not nearly what I hoped it would.

Very assessable for a guy who cringes at the thought of "pretzel poses." (Although I like Rold Gold pretzels - one of the reasons I need this book!). Lots of pictures and descriptions and some videos online (and a DVD available, of course). He never says Yoga is "easy," but was eloquent about the benefits and how guys should approach it and do it.

Definitely worth the read and worth a try!

Though written with humor, this book was essentially written in an attempt to appeal to the "redneck". It makes use of "cheese cake" photography in an attempt to coax "real guys" into doing yoga. I found nothing useful or worthwhile in this book.

It's written by a wrestler and the forward is by Rob Zombie. Also, one of the models is wearing combat fatigues as he shows proper yoga form. This is going to be awesome.

Film and television actor and personality Dallas Page has been entertaining millions of fans for over 20 years. The athletic, 52 year-old Page knew at an early age that he was born to entertain. His grandmother called him “energetic”—truly an understatement. Whether it was barreling through his grandma’s kitchen on his tricycle, swinging from chandeliers at the babysitter’s house, or cannonballs a ...more

“When we take deep, long, slow breaths, we can actually stop the “fight or flight” portion of our nervous system (called the sympathetic nervous system) from overreacting to different types of stress.
