Yoga for Golf
Yoga for golf is by far the best method of increasing your flexibility and staying loose. There aren't many better feelings than making smooth, unrestricted golf swings are there?!
Using yoga will make your entire body respond effortlessly to the demands of your golf swing and keep you loose throughout your round. It is one of the fastest growing areas of fitness in golf today.
Staying flexible and loose is an issue for golfers of all ages. This is why yoga and golf are perfect for each other. You can choose the level involvement of yoga stretches you wish to do. As we age our need for flexibility is arguably the #1 issue in playing decent golf.
allows you to maintain a suppleness in every area you choose to focus on. And what's really great about yoga
is the benefits to your mind as well. From a mental game/peak performance coach's perspective, this is the ultimate combination.
Golf and Yoga
So while you're doing the right thing by improving your flexibility you are also gaining the side benefit of a peaceful state of mind. A true win win situation.
In the mental game program we cover numerous advanced mental game exercises that are greatly improved when yoga is practiced along with them.
In fact, the increased inner calm and peaceful state of mind gained through practicing yoga provides an excellent foundation for every aspect of the program.
As a coach of the mental game of golf I know of no better approach to improving your golf game than by a marriage of yoga and golf mental game exercises. I personally enjoy the added distance to my tee shots from increased flexibility and range of motion. You will too.
Yoga Improves Power
You will get to that wonderful stage of effortless power instead of powerless effort! What I found amazing was how much stronger I feel just from stretching. I added distance to every club in my bag simply because my swing is not restricted.
Have you ever noticed this...
You go play golf and you're not in the best place to make a good swing off the first tee. You're not really stretched and the results show. It inevitably takes 3 - 5 holes to feel loose! Yoga helps immediately.
Using yoga dramatically improves your overall flexibility, so in those times we rush to the first tee (hey, this is reality for most of us non-competitive golfers) unprepared, we don't have to feel like a piece of rod iron or stiff as a board!
