“You see moves in yoga and sometimes you think, ‘Why am I doing this?’ Some positions look awkward, but if you look at pictures of a footballer taking a shot, their body will be in a really awkward-looking position too, because you’re off balance. When you explode with pace or kick a ball, you need flexibility and strength and the yoga really helps to build that.”
— Ryan Giggs, former Manchester United and Wales star
