Celebrities who practice Yoga

Quote from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (NBA basket ball player) "Basketball is an endurance sport, and you have to learn to control your breath, that's the essence of yoga, too. So I consciously began to us yoga techniques in my practice and playing. Americans are very good at cardiovascular endurance and strength, but flexibility is the missing element. This is why a lot of athletes get injured. I think that doing yoga really helped reduce the number and severity of the injuries I suffered during my career. As preventive medicine, it's unequaled.

My friends and teammates think I made a deal with the devil. But it was yoga that made my training complete. There is no way I could have played as long as I did without yoga."
