Welcome to Yoga for Tennis players a 20 Min Yoga flow to Improve your Power Game!
Today's primary session focus is to improve your power game.
This means hitting harder, Serving faster, and improving mobility across the Tennis court. We focus on the spiral movement extending through the legs and unleashing your power game.
We will also work on mobility, strengthening the core, and improving flexibility and balance. This yoga flow gives you some postures that make the best use of your available time and hits all the main points where Tennis players frequently have overuse injuries like the Back, Hands, Feet, Core, and legs.
This class is great for all levels. Please go at your own pace, rest when required, and be patient. Deepen into each pose by working with the breath - lengthen to find a sense of space.
Class Description and Structure We start the class with a Sankalpa which is a dedication to someone you know that needs a little extra support and love and we send that to them.
From here we move onto our body awakening series to increase mobility and release any tension before starting the practice. We will mobilize the wrist and hands and incorporate a very powerful Qi Gong sequence that alone will improve your power.
My background in Tai Chi and Qi Gong provides a unique perspective that can be applied to Tennis players and will create immense benefits. This alone is worth watching the video.
Next, we move onto our flow sequence which includes Rolling knee to low lunge stretching through the hamstrings and increasing hip flexibility. From here we move onto cat/cow posture for spinal mobility and strengthening the core. After this, we move into Phalaksana ( Plank ) Down dog, Uttanasana ( forward fold ) Vrksasana ( Tree pose ) which strengthens the legs, core, and improves balance.
From here we will move into Bhardvajasana which is the seated twist to strengthen the core, lengthen the spine and increase the spiral motion we utilize when accelerating our movement through the tennis racquet to increase our power.
We then move onto Viparita Karani ( legs up the wall pose ) - modified with a chair to release tension in the legs and this pose is especially good when finishing 3 or 5 sets in Tennis and you want your legs to feel energized again.
Great for recovery at any time.
We finish the class with a lying twist before moving into Savasana ( corpse pose ) to release all tension and give the body a moment to recharge before continuing on with your day.
Regular practice of this flow will reduce the likelihood of injuries and allow you to HIT harder and take your game to the next level.
