Heat center Alonzo Mourning has incorporated yoga into his routine years after speaking about it with Robert Parish, who played with Mourning for one season with the Charlotte Hornets, Zo's second year in the league.
''He told me how incorporating yoga into his life helped prolong his career,'' Mourning recalled during this series. ``
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar took a great deal of martial arts and yoga and it helped the flexibility alone. It helped prolong their careers.'' But Mourning said he didn't consider those alternatives until he was diagnosed with a kidney disorder in October 2000. Mourning said he works privately with a Coral Gables-based yoga instructor on off days. http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald...s/14839687.htm
