NBA Players Making a Difference Through Yoga

Earlier this week, two Atlanta Hawks players participated in NBA Fit Live Healthy Week by encouraging a group of youth to stay active. Forty children from the C.H.O.I.C.E.S. (Center for Helping Obesity in Children End Successfully) program were joined by Atlanta pros Zaza Pachulia and Ivan Johnson, as well as the Hawks’ Yoga Instructor, for a free one hour yoga class.
