US coach Mark Grimmette said that in exchange for tips on boosting his luge skills, Keshavan, who is taking part in his fifth Olympics passes on his knowledge of yoga.
"He fits well within the team. Yoga is something we have had with the team for a few years now but Shiva and his wife know yoga well so they have been facilitating those sessions," said Grimmette.
"He has been with us this season but we are looking to make it a longer arrangement — maybe for the next four years.
"He would continue competing for India but he would be partnering with the US for a little more coaching."
