Yoga according to LeBron

Many people know about the growing popularity of the ancient physical and mental discipline of Yoga.  Many celebrities have incorporated Yoga in their daily routine.  NBA star, LeBron James has made Yoga a part of his essential weekly practice.

When asked how Yoga helps mental focus:
L: "Yoga isn't just about the body, it's about the mind and it's technique that has really helped me," James said. "You do have to focus because there's some positions that can really hurt you at times if you aren't focused and breathing right."

When asked how Yoga helps recover from injuries:
L: "It is something that really can help your balance," James said. "I had some lower back problems a few years ago and once I started to do the yoga, it has helped them go away for now. Of course we can stretch but stretching only goes so far."

Highlights from this blog entry are taken from an amazing article called "LeBron's extra edge: Cavaliers star's devotion to yoga training helps keeps James healthy" By Brian Windhorst.
