Golfthink In The News
Animal Instincts Improving Your Game
Cobra Poses, Downward Facing Dogs, Alligator TwistsIf these sound like the OB G & L Editors latest dance floor moves, think again. These are poses from Katherine Roberts Yoga For Golfers that applies the principles of yoga, flexibility, strength, core conditioning, balance and mental focus to improve your golf game and your life.
If yoga conjures up images of tall skinny guys sitting in precarious positions while chanting over yogurt-scented incense, you better crawl out of your cave and get yourself into a pigeon pose before reading on. Yoga for Golfers has been nothing short of a sensation in the United States, and with the likes of Annika Sorenstam, Se Ri Pak, Gary McCord, Aaron Baddley and Brad Faxon all using yoga in their fitness routines, the revolutionary system seems set to stay, unlike a lot of the game improvement fads which tend to disappear out of fashion, and out of the news quicker than a Martha Burk Masters protest. Her golf-specific fitness program is based on the principles of yoga and offers immediate results including improved flexibility and strength leading to greater distance, enhanced breathing awareness for better swing tempo, increased concentration, improved overall fitness, better balance and a feeling of improved overall health.
Programs consist of yoga postures specifically selected for a golfer's needs, proper breathing techniques for better tempo in your swing, mind and visualization methods, stretches that increase flexibility, strength, balance and reduce the risk of injury, pre-round, on-the-course, and post-golf yoga sequences, and intensive core conditioning programs. Three different levels of difficulty allows those golfers who cant seem to shed those tri-weekly Big Macs from their waistline to practice Yoga at a level suited to their individual fitness levels.
