If you play tennis, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn that Yoga and Pilates can transform your game. These disciplines can improve your strength, flexibility, and balance, while developing greater mind control and focus. Playing tennis and/or living an active lifestyle can throw your body out of alignment, particularly causing strain and injury to the elbows, shoulders, wrists, knees, ankles, and spine. Yoga & Pilates focuses on re-balancing the body, creating symmetry and alignment. These benefits result in a greater range of motion, increased strength, and reduced risk of injury. Additionally, Yoga and Pilates emphasis on breath control and mind calming techniques will add mental power to your game and life's daily routines.
