Seahawks & Yoga

5 Sep

As promised, for all my yogi ~ Seahawks fans: 

“The timeworn strategy is, of course, to be a hard-ass–think Bear Bryant banning water breaks, Vince Lombardi screaming and yelling, Mike Rice throwing basketballs at players’ heads, Nick Saban berating his team on the sideline. Carroll craved a chance to reimagine the coaching role in the NFL. “I wanted to find out if we went to the NFL and really took care of guys, really cared about each and every individual, what would happen?””

Also!  Be sure to read this New York Times article Title for the Seahawks is a Triumph for the Profile of Yoga by Lynn Zinser, and ESPN The Magazine’s article Lotus Pose on Two: Seattle Seahawks Believe their Kinder, Gentler Philosophy is the Future of Football by Alyssa Roenigk.

“Men and athletes doing yoga is not new. Basketball’s Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was an early proponent, as was the tennis star John McEnroe. Most recently, Andy Murray credited part of his recent tennis success to Bikram yoga. Stanford’s football team has incorporated yoga into its training program.”
