I have black belts in a few arts, including Bushido Kempo & Kajukenbo,
the breathing control & focus helps a great deal.
But friends tell me that Yoga breathing is the way to go.

Anyone out there have any other techniques or exercises (martial arts
related or otherwise) that help with playing?

Yes, martial arts is wonderful. I was trained in Wah Lum Kung Fu and
T'ai Chi. The breath training included long and slow inhale, pausing
(without closing off the throat) for the same duration, followed by long
slow exhale and another long pause.

There is also a book and videos available about "The Art of Breathing"
by Nancy Zi which is highly recommended.
