The Yoga of athletes

Bikram Yoga is gaining popularity among high-level athletes who have included it in their training regimen. Strengthening the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments helps prevent injuries and/or speed up recovery from injury.  The concentration needed to do the postures helps champions develop endurance and mind power.  Very often, especially for dancers, Bikram Yoga can help prolong their careers.  Many high-level athletes have recently declared that Bikram Yoga had contributed to improving their performance: tennis players Serena Williams and Andy Murray, football (soccer) players Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham, the French rugby team XV Gallois as well as the Australian rugby team.
