WELL KNOWN ATHLETES WHO PRACTISE YOGA ...
Many well known athletes and elite sports people credit yoga with increasing their performance and career longevity, and for effective management of their injuries. This is what some of them have to say ...

I'd go so far as to say that if you're not practicing yoga, you're competing at a disadvantage and missing an opportunity to enhance peak performance."

"No one understood why I spent so much time putting myself into those strange positions. Well, it's to improve my form on the bike. I sit on the bike with a much flatter back now than I used to three or four years ago, for example. ... . There's a method to my madness."

"I've been doing it (yoga) since I was 31 or 32. It coincided with me retiring from international football. I was starting to feel the strain.

Brad Friedel, 2011 (age 41), Tottenham Hotspur Goalkeeper
