Wrestling champ creates extreme yoga

Diamond Dallas Page is a former professional wrestler who is living a much different lifestyle outside the ring. Page has gone from throwing his opponents off the top ropes to teaching them yoga moves. It might seem like a strange career path at first, but Page says it was done out of necessity. 

"I'm a guy who wouldn't get caught dead doing yoga the first 42 years of my life," he says, "but I didn't start wrestling until I was 35, my career took off when I was 40 and then bang, I blew my back out so badly that I had three of the top back specialists in the world tell me that my career was over. I would try anything at that point and yoga is what it became."
