Yoga Can Improve Your Tennis!
So what can yoga do for you on the court?
First, it can improve your flexibility and balance. Yoga helps you stretch your muscles in new and different ways, ways that you're probably not doing out on the tennis court. And many yoga poses require you to hold and stabilize yourself, boosting your body awareness and balance.
Second, yoga can reduce and even prevent injuries. It can do this, again, through increasing your flexibility and body awareness.
Finally, through meditation and breathing techniques, yoga can improve your mental focus. Yes, yoga may actually help you get into "the zone", that mental state we're all searching for during our matches.
