NEW YORK, NEW YORK, June 3, 2001: The New Age mind-body connection that is normally associated with actresses, supermodels and Buddhist monks is now the exercise du jour with some of the hulks in the National Football League. The Giants and Denver Broncos have worked with a yoga instructor to incorporate yoga as part of the team's diversity training. The seed was planted by fullback Greg Comella and wide receiver Amani Toomer, both students of Sarah Margolis and Marilyn Barnett, who run the Yoga Connection TriBeCa. "Coach Jim Fassel wanted to continue the theme of providing new and different activities rather than just the traditional running and lifting," said Dunn, noting that last year the team offered martial arts as part of its training regimen. "Yoga gave us that. Obviously, the flexibility that comes with yoga is important."
