“We probably should be in a beginner’s class, but we decided to give it a try. I’ve noticed a big difference since I began doing it this summer. It helps with flexibility, quickness and durability.” B-baller and 2010 Ivy League player of the year, Ryan Wittman says after taking a yoga class at NYC’s 92nd Street Y.
Wittman and his fellow Cornell basketball pals Jeff Foote, Aaron Osgood, Louis Dale and Jon Jaques did yoga as a team back in college and they’re still kickin’ it mat side while they jockey for pro gigs. When the NBA is on lockout what else is there to do but yoga and golf? Ask Jason Kidd!
