Djokovic, a well-known yoga-lover, was seen taking different poses above the floor during his aerial session, a workout which combines traditional yoga, pilates, and dance.

Caterpillar ready to become a butterfly. Aerial Yoga. Anti-gravitational stretch. Best ever Spider-Man working on flexibility,” Djokovic captioned the pictures which he shared online.

Djokovic, who practices yoga and meditation on a regular basis, said that it helps to strengthen and stretch his hips and lower back as well as avoid injuries.

The player’s ‘Spiderman’ and ‘caterpillar’ moves amazed his followers, who bombarded his page with comments of admiration, saying that Djokovic is a true ‘magician’ on and off the tennis court.
