Yoga For Tennis

Yoga For Tennis is designed for both amateur and professional tennis players to improve your performance and reduce your risk of injury.

“Yoga helped me not just with the breathing. It helped me with my mental strength and with my performance in general. I try to do it daily, at least one time.” Novak Djokovic

Tennis involves fast, multi-directional movements across joints in the upper and lower body that are explosive and highly dynamic. This requires tremendous strength, skill, power and endurance but also excellent mobility, defined as your ability to stabilise at the end ranges of your motion.

In yoga, we practice a number of techniques that can supercharge your game. These include:

  • Mobility to keep your joints moving well through their full range of motion.
  • Stability to build a robust foundation for power and control and reduce your risk of injury.
  • Flexibility to release tension in tight muscles and correct muscular imbalances.
  • Balance to train proprioception, coordination and body control.
  • Recovery to alleviate pain and rest your mind and body between training sessions.


Yoga For Tennis is divided into 3 sections: STABILISE, STRETCH and MOBILISE. Yoga is a holistic movement practice that conditions the body on all three of these dimensions from head-to-toe but specifically we will:

  • Stabilise the wrists, shoulders, core, hips and knees.
  • Stretch the forearms, lats, obliques, hip flexors, groin, glutes, IT band, hamstrings, calves, feet and ankles.
  • Mobilise the wrists, elbows, neck, shoulders, spine, hips and feet.


The timing and frequency of your sessions is going to be highly individualised as they depend on your own personal schedule and preferences. However, as a guide, the stability and mobility videos in this Yoga For Tennis course are great to practice before exercise or on active recovery days and the stretch sequences after training or to wind down in the evenings. 

I’m excited to hear how you find the course!
