LeBron James: Yoga Is Secret to Endurance

I knew that LeBron James hit the mat (and could do a Headstand), but had no idea to what extent. The Miami Herald reports that James credits his remarkable stamina to yoga!

James has been logging over 43-minutes per game during the playoffs and is arguably the most well-conditioned professional basketball player in the world.

When asked about his off-season yoga practice and how it's helped his stamina, James replied:

“Does it work for everybody? I don’t know. I’m not a guru about how to be in the best condition — don’t let me sit here and tell you that. But it works for me.”
Interesting that he made a point to say that he wasn't a guru, right?

So where does James hit the mat? It's still a secret:
“It was back home... I can’t tell you exactly where it’s at. It’s a secret place. We hold a secret society over there. We don’t tell many people.
LeBron's yoga practice has even rubbed off on Miami Heat coach, Erik Spoesltra. Spoelstra hits the mat during the season to 'stay in shape and relieve stress.'

Namaste to that!
