*Sport-specific training is great. However, we also believe tennis players can benefit from learning about other disciplines. That's why we're happy to offer this new course that takes "training" to a deeper, more profound level. Here are a few of the ways this type of Yoga training can improve your tennis game:
Improved attention and focus. Coaches are always saying "watching the ball" and "keep focused", but how do you train these skills? Yoga is a great way.
Less forcing of your shots. Almost all recreational players try to swing too hard to generate power. Yoga teaches you how to move with strength, but without force.
Integration of breath in movement. Most recreational players tend to hold their breath, leading to excess tension and less endurance. Yoga teaches you how to link movement with breath, eliminating body tension and providing more energy. Learning how to breathe can really make a difference between points, games and during points.
Mental focus and confidence. Yoga gives you a path to establishing a deeper connection between the mind and the body, quieting the mental chatter that often interferes with our execution on the court.
