Yoga and Tennis (Tennis and the Coronavirus Lockdown: Knowledge from Home)

Yoga consists of a collection of physical, mental and spiritual practices originating from ancient India. It constitutes a school of Hindu philosophy about the body, mind and the Universe. In the West, it has developed into physical fitness exercises offering stress relief and relaxation. Yoga has cross-training benefits with other sports such as, of course, tennis. 

Qualities of Yoga applicable to tennis include:
*Core and Lower Body Strength and Stability
