Wimbledon tennis and Yoga 2013

I have been doing the warm-ups at Wimbledon tennis qualifiers for many years. Indeed some of the young things I worked with back in the day are now 40+. I have introduced hundreds of people to yoga this way and hopefully a few will have picked it up from "Yoga Mama"

Here is the lovely group from this year's event busting their yoga moves. Many tops sports people now use yoga as part of their training programme and, indeed, many top tennis players use yoga to increase flexibility, strength and mental focus. Who? My lips are sealed.















Wimbledon Qualifiers 2010

I spent last week working at the Wimbledon Tennis Qualifiers at Roehampton. This was my 17th year doing the warm up exercises for the ball boy/girls at this event. As always we had a great time and the students were able to work through the tournament despite the long days and aching limbs.


250 tennis players from around the world battled it out in an attempt to secure a place at Wimbledon. Many well known tennis players have come through the qualifiers; including John McEnroe, Boris Becker and Lleyton Hewitt. Who knows, perhaps another qualifier will lift the trophy this year!

Here are some photos from the week.
