Presented by Margit Bannon
Ever wonder how yoga can benefit your tennis game as both a
player and coach? This class is designed to target what most racquet sports

Learn how to use dynamic yoga postures as a warm-up, static postures as a
strategy for recovery, with postures, breathing techniques and focus tools,
appropriate during tennis play. Unlike
many modern yoga classes, this class will move at an accessible pace, suitable
to beginner and more experienced practitioners alike. Leave feeling a little
more alive in both body & mind as a great start to your conference day!
