Remember that cah-razy 2012 Summer Olympics Womens Soccer semi-final match when Alex Morgan scored that ah-mazing goal in the final moments to secure the win? Yep, she’s a yogi, and she’s been named U.S. Soccer 2012 Female Athlete of the Year. Woohoo. For the record, the entire Womens U.S. Soccer Team have yoga on their side. Ohh, we’re proud yoga soccer moms.
In case you were wondering what a 9 minute montage of Alex Morgan doing yoga looked like, TeamUSA has posted a video of it on YouTube. Of course, sites like BroBible are drooling over it, but we see it as an interesting, if not slightly awkward camera-in-your-face, demonstration of strength and concentration, which is shot more charmingly than sexy. Sure, it’s about 8 minutes too long and the intro is a little Rocky-cheese-tastic but Alex is a warrior woman and we give her props. (Really, we would give her a few props, and some tips. But, you know, it’s a practice.)
So here you go, Alex Morgan doing yoga in Seattle, Washington about a month before the start of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
