With just a mat and herself, Margit Bannon of Play Tennis. Practice Yoga. shows us how to do a gentle sun salutation as a warm-up before matches or practice.
The sun salutation helps tennis and pickleball players get engaged and focused with slow, smooth motions that gently build up warmth.
Even if you have no experience with yoga, this warm-up can help you start matches and practice with the right focus of both body and mind.
