Vancouver native and Boston Bruins forward, Milan Lucic, tried yoga for the very first time this month when he stopped by Bikram’s Yoga Metrotown. The Stanley Cup champion (who was toting the coveted cup around Vancouver last week) was surprised the hot and sweaty yoga class was so challenging and he even found relief from a shoulder injury.
Lucic’s not the only professional hockey player to include yoga in his fitness routine. Teammate, Tim Thomas, has been practicing yoga for over four years and openly attributes his success on the ice to regular yoga practice. Other hockey players such as Mark Messier, Mark Recchi and George Laraque have all practiced yoga to further compliment their game.
