Why Yoga for Golf ?


Forming A Habit

Every golfer wants to play better golf. The average golfer tends to take up the game later in life, first as a past time or leisure activity. But then, most of us get hooked, and the desire to play better and lower one’s personal handicap becomes more present. The most common ways to improve in golf include lessons and practice, lots of practice! What’s often missing is the need for improved physical conditioning.

Par72 Yoga and Katherine Roberts’ Yoga for Golfers® (YFG) harnesses and integrates power of the body with power of the mind to increase and enhance performance, enabling golfers at all levels to play longer, play stronger, and play better.

Golf is an athletic sport that is both physically and mentally demanding. A regular yoga practice improves flexibility, muscular strength, and mobility. Yoga incorporates deep breathing to relax the mind and body, resulting in increased concentration and reduced stress. 

Scientifically-proven and globally-recognized, YFG is a distinctly unique and proprietary yoga methodology that fuses Western biomechanical science with Eastern mind/body conditioning, applying it to every dimension of the golf swing, to drive immediate improvements in performance, right from the first tee. Yoga For Golfers® delivers results for golf enthusiasts and golf professionals of every age at every level of ability.

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 posture at address and swing are learned in the conscious mind, they are stored in the nether regions of the subconscious. Yoga relaxation techniques are used to quiet the overactive mind and to harness the power of visualization, both of which are essential for golf. When your mental chatter quiets, you're able to approach your golf game with focus and awareness.


I have had chronic neck and shoulder pain for a while now which you probably noticed.  I haven’t been able to put my head on the ground without pain lying on my back in forever, today was the first time.  I think I am hooked
on this Yoga thing.
