Yoga for Golfers

Yoga for Golfers

Yoga for golfers has so many benefits, yoga is an exercise that uses poses and stretches that can improve flexibility, strength and balance. Properly practiced, yoga breathing also can be calming. Yoga increases flexibility and flexibility increases the ability for a golfer to generate club-head speed. Golfers may be prone to one-sided or uneven muscle development.

Yoga postures can strengthen weak areas and help ease muscular tension. Golf can also lead to tight hips, quads and hamstrings so golfers benefit from poses that open up the hips and stretch the hamstrings.The golf swing requires stability and flexibility of the hips and thoracic spine. A regular yoga practice can help address these issues.

 Golfers will also benefit from upper body strengtheners like down dog and plank and here I will show you some of the Yoga Poses that will benefit you most.

Golf requires a great deal of physical skill and practice, so you need the mind to be as calm ad possible so it is easy to focus on the task at hand. The emphasis on  breathing and mind-body connection in yoga is essential in helping for golfers to develop mental acuity, patience and concentration.
