Yoga For Golfers: "Fore" Yoga Poses to Improve Your Golf Game
Welcome to Fore Ladies Golf "Yoga For Golfers" series! We are going to be leading you through a series of poses designed to increase your flexibility and core strength in order to help you improve your performance on the golf course. Get the full written instructions here.
Cat/cow is a great way to warm up the spine. It increases flexibility of the neck, shoulders, and spine and helps eliminate the “c posture” that prevents golfers from achieving full rotation on both sides of the swing. It also stretches the muscles of the hips, back, abdomen, chest, and lungs.
Balancing Table is ideal for strengthening the glutes and core (the most important muscles in your golf game), helps with balance, and lengthens the spine.
Gates pose with rotation
The Gates pose with rotation stretches the side of the body, your shoulders, and hamstrings, and increases flexibility of the spine — which is crucial to your golf swing.
Revolved Crescent Lunge
If you've ever experienced hip pain after golfing, you will definitely benefit from this pose. It can also be a great preventative pose to avoid these injuries.
The Revolved Crescent Lunge is an intense hip flexor stretch on the straight leg and a deep stretch of the outer hip of the bent leg. It also lengthens and rotates the spine, increasing your flexibility and swing mobility. Twisting poses are excellent for creating balance between the left and the right sides of the body.
