Brown quickly noticed improvement. He started performing better on impact tests, which measure flexibility and are performed by team trainers.

“I feel like I can bend better,” he said. “I can play with a stronger base, and those are the most important thing for an offensive line - stay low and having a wide base.”

Brown stopped the yoga classes after the Redskins began their offseason conditioning program last month because the yoga was too taxing physically when combined with the Redskins‘ regimen. He plans to resume them after the offseason program concludes in mid-June.
