If you think about it golf and yoga have a lot in common. Yoga requires flexibility, strength, and balance, Golf, similarly, requires flexibility, mental stamina, strength, and endurance . Yoga also works to strengthen muscles through continuous bodyweight formations, increasing endurance. While golf is not considered fast-paced, the amount of walking and standing can create a feeling of fatigue which often impacts our posture. With experience or endurance training, this fatigue becomes less frequent. When a golfer has strong endurance, their game is benefited. Find core stability to increase your golf swing, increase range of motion, build awareness of muscular imbalances, and prevent injury.
