Injury Prevention One

We all love playing tennis And we all hate missing court time over an injury.

Many of the warm-up exercises we’ve seen pros do have roots in yoga. 


Here are a few favorites for shoulder, back and hamstring tightness.

Extended child’s pose:  Lengthens and stretches the spinal, hip, thigh and ankle muscles. Relieves neck and lower back pain.  For a bonus stretch - Change the orientation of the hand. Pinky down thumbs up will improve your next overhead!

Downward dog: strengthen the arm and shoulders when the upper arms are externally rotated to create space around the head and neck, strengthens the core, lengthens hamstring and stretches calves.

Balance poses: provides mental and physical benefits including knowing our center of gravity which translates into better ball placement on the court.
