AUDREY LEE|CERTIFIED DDP YOGA INSTRUCTOR
It's me, Audrey! I'm 25 years young, and I love DDP YOGA and everything it has done for me! I can't imagine what my life would be like if I had not stumbled upon the mega-viral Arthur Boorman video on YouTube. DDP YOGA has been life-changing for me in every possible way. The same can truly be said for countless others touched by DDP YOGA.
I started DDP YOGA with no prior knowledge of how to exercise or eat right. I was battling depression, chronic pain, anemia, a pinched disc in my lower back, two tailbone surgeries, and I was 40 lbs overweight. Growing up I had always been thin, but not fit. Weight gain was a rarity for me, and to be frank, I was in denial. It wasn't until I graduated from college in 2013 that I realized my weight and overeating had become an issue. The summer of 2013 was when I decided to make a change and invest in myself, my health, and take back my life.
Perhaps more importantly, I no longer have any back pain! My depression was a thing of the past, and I had never felt better in my life. In total, I actually lost 33 lbs, but I am much leaner at my current weight than I have ever been before. I no longer feel that I'm in too much pain to do things. My zest for life has returned, and I've taken ownership of the real me.
In 2014, after I reached my goal weight, my new goal became attaining my DDP YOGA Certification! I wanted to share the healing benefits of DDP YOGA with others. I wanted to inspire others to believe in themselves, even if they had given up hope previously. I knew that DDP YOGA was something special, and it became my mission to share it with the world. That's why I created ALIVE Fitness, and the road to my certification began!
I completed my certification in May 2015, after having taught classes out of my home, Precision Fitness in Costa Mesa, CA, and even meeting Diamond Dallas Page himself. In September 2015, I was asked to take part in the filming of the reimagining of the DDP YOGA DVDs and workouts to be featured on the DDP YOGA Now app. After a week of filming at the DDP YOGA Performance Center, I was asked back in November 2015 to film once again. Both experiences are ones I will never forget, and I spent much of the time surrounded by some of the amazing people I have met along my journey. Not only has DDP YOGA given me my life back, but it has given me a career, new friends, and a positive outlook on life.
Enter DDP YOGA! I've always been a huge pro-wrestling fan, which is where I had heard the name before... Diamond Dallas Page! I ordered myself the program, and started the day it showed up at my doorstep. I was amazed how excited I was to eat better and work out every day. Within the first 2 weeks, I started to notice a significant difference in my size, energy level, and flexibility. By November 2014, I had gone from a size 12 to a 6!
