Why healthcare professionals love DDPY...

Marcel Doré MD - Hospitalist and DDPY Instructor

DDPY is Low-Impact

It's a Great Cardio Workout

Accessible For All Fitness Levels

A Prescription for Health

My name is Marcel Doré and I am a physician. I have personally experienced the benefits of DDPY in my life through weight loss and fitness journey. Over the age of 50, and a grandfather, I am fitter now than anytime in the past 20 years, despite significant degenerated discs of the back, herniated discs, sciatica and a torn knee meniscus, diabetes and hypertension. 

I am pleased to share my health improvement experience and DDPY exercise through classes in the Guelph (Ontario Canada) area – welcoming all ages, all fitness levels, all experience levels. My philosophy is to coach you from your starting point toward a better fitness level.

DDPY and Healthy Living

What is DDPY?

Diamond Dallas Page, @RealDDP, professional wrestler and recent inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame, originally developed DDP YOGA (DDPY) for athletes like himself who had suffered years of injuries due to high-impact sports. For the first 42 years of his life, Dallas was a guy who "wouldn't be caught dead" doing yoga, or anything like it.

DDPY is a revolutionary approach to fitness that combines the best of yoga positions, sports rehab therapy, old school calisthenics and dynamic resistance to give you a complete

workout that requires 


When it came to getting his body to heal so he could get back into the ring in the late 1990s, Dallas turned to yoga and defied all odds with a full-on comeback. 

However, what separates DDPY from all other kinds of yoga is not just that it is fronted by a celebrity, or that the  program combines yoga poses and calisthenics with physical therapy principles, or even that it has an interactive app that lets its users do the workouts from anywhere, but that DDPY is something that anybody at any age or skill level can do.

DDPY may have a strong celebrity following (e.g. Darius Rucker, Chris Jericho, A.J. Styles, Gabriel Iglesias), but the program is rooted in adaptability and “making it your own.” Finding the motivation to start doing DDPY is often the major hurdle for people, as it may entail trying things that were not originally part of their lifestyle. In addition to steadily completing the workouts, followers of DDPY are encouraged to reconsider their diets and overall attitude.

When following all of these concepts, results are guaranteed. Just ask military veteran Arthur Boorman, who previously walked with crutches and leg braces, or Jared Mollenkopf, who lost around 300 pounds in a little over a year.
