Pop quiz time: What do LeBron James, Shaquille O'Neal, Floyd Mayweather, Tom Brady, and Kevin Garnett have in common (besides being all-star athletes, of course)? Answer: They all do yoga.
In fact, entire sports teams are implementing yoga in their training plans in order to apply the many benefits of yoga to their athletic performance. See, yoga boosts your flexibility, balance, and strength, while keeping your muscle tissue, bones, joints, and ligaments strong and healthy. And as any yogini can attest to, the ancient practice also makes you more zen and clear-headed, which will come in handy when you need to make tough game-time decisions. Talk about a winning combination.
