So I’ll spare you the health lecture!
No need to sound like a broken record and repeat what you already know deep-down to be true.
After all, you probably already understand that a strong and balanced body is essential to a successful golf game. You’ve probably also heard that yoga is one of the best ways to increase range of motion, protect the spine, and reduce stress.
You might have even heard that numerous athletes--from professional football players to high school baseball teams--use yoga as a training tool to increase performance.
Even if you’ve tried yoga in the past, or are currently playing golf at a high and consistent level, adding yoga as a training modality can:
It takes a tremendous amount of courage to be a golfer. And so does starting something new--like yoga!
If you’ve ever tried to enhance your body with yoga (or any other fitness technique), you likely opted to do so without professional guidance. You bought the right equipment. Purchased new workout attire. And you likely got excited about the possibilities your refined body could produce on the course.
This go-getter approach might have caused you to train too hard too fast, which hindered your ability to play golf well. Or even worse, you pushed your body to the point of injury.
Even if you were lucky enough to find the perfect amount of physical challenge, odds are the busy-ness of life distracted you from sticking with your new plan long-term.
Or let’s say you did find a yoga instructor to guide you safely through the movements, they might not understand the various types of stretching and how they affect athletic performance.
Without a super clear, step-by-step training plan that’s sport-specific, most golfers would get lost.
Or, they fall victim to the idea that they have to be flexible to begin (like all of the online images of yogis today suggest)
You’re a smart and social person with a full schedule, and you want to use your free time wisely (including playing as much golf as possible). You literally can’t afford to waste your energy with something that doesn’t work. Nor are you willing to risk the possibility of injury that could take you away from the game entirely.
That’s why using the right types of stretching for golfers at the right times in your training cycle is essential for your success.
A yoga practice itself isn’t complicated. Yet, unfamiliar yoga terminology and the numerous styles available today make it hard to understand.
What type of yoga is best for my age and body? Which stretches will prepare my body before I play golf? And how much time is best to practice to help me perform my best on the course?
These are just some of the MANY questions that will cross your mind.
Instead of letting the unknown deter you from giving yoga a try, you can use the same detailed mindset on the golf course to glean the best ways yoga can supplement your game.
Images of yoga today highlight uber-flexible people in positions that border on contortionism. The truth is, you don’t need to be flexible to do yoga. Nor do you need to drastically enhance your flexibility to be a better golfer.
It’s time to reframe your expectations about yoga. You can use it to increase elasticity and range of motion. But yoga also enhances stability, body awareness, and strength--three necessary elements to a consistent golf swing.
There are different ways to stretch the body. You use them at different times depending on the outcome you want to achieve. This is similar to having a variety of clubs in your bag.
Just like you wouldn’t grab your putter to drive the ball 300 yards or your 3-wood for a short sand shot, you don’t want to approach a one-size-fits-all approach to stretching.
The trick is to know which types of stretching to do when. And once you do, you can take a nuanced approach to care for your body the same way you use detail with each golf shot.
Even though yoga continues to grow in popularity today, it can still be hard to understand. And while the benefits of such a practice are many, a majority of golfers overlook it as a valuable way to improve their golf game. This is often because yoga is a seemingly simple practice to start.
However, like golf, EFFECTIVE EXECUTION of skills is what really makes the positive difference!
And as long as you avoid the training pitfalls made by most new yogis, the path to greater success on the golf course is wide open for you now! One that allows you to have more freedom in your body, control during your swing, and mental clarity to execute under pressure.
That’s where I can help you out! And, with your permission, I’d love to show you exactly how!
There’s no fluff. No unnecessary modules or overwhelming training material that would deter you from reaching your goals.
Discover the exact yoga sequences that will benefit you as a golfer, preparing you to play better and restoring the body effectively after each round.
