Yoga Baby!!
« on: April 16, 2008, 09:29:56 AM »

Had an awesome class last night.  I've been doing yoga for about 8 years, and it's really been helping my golf game. 

Losing range of motion is a major factor in aging but you don't have to lose that flexibility.  Plus, I've gained a surprising amount of upper body strength.

I've thought about it, but it would mean less time on the golf course for me, and we can't have that. Grin

Yoga for Golfers - By throwing your goals off the fairway and practicing being present in the process, you can play a better golf game.   By Baron Baptiste and Kathleen Finn Mendola

Perhaps no game is more wrought with mental hazards than golf. The sport introduces a constant struggle between the conscious mind—analyzing, alert, logical—and the subconscious mind—the well of intuition and long-term memory. Though golf fundamentals like body stance and stroke are learned in the conscious mind, they are stored in the nether regions of the subconscious.

This clash between subconscious and conscious mind presents an opportunity for the awakened athlete to override the mental strife created by the overanalyzing conscious mind and reach toward the wakeful, clear mind state accessible through the intuitive subconscious.

Golfers who don't learn the nuances of the mental game of golf remain frustrated or give up before mastering the sport. Yet by incorporating elements of yoga practice, you can develop the mental discipline that golf demands.

Susan, sometimes a few quick beers on the course can do the same thing that you just mentioned. Wink Grin
