Cavaliers forward LeBron James has used Yoga to prepare both his body and mind for games in recent years.
"Yoga isn't just about the body, it's also about the mind, and it's a technique that has really helped me," James said. "You do have to focus because there's some positions that can really hurt you at times if you aren't focused and breathing right."
James and Cavs assistant athletic trainer Mike Mancias have been developing a regimen over the past two years.
"He tries to focus on things that will help him and that the body needs, especially for balance and to strengthen his core," said Mancias.
"Yoga is an activity that encompasses all that. It's total body, and it helps him mentally, too. Flexibility is important to him, and we've tried to incorporate all of that into a routine."
