I used the yoga positions in the book to help me increase my flexibility and relax my mind. Does yoga increase flexibility? That's a definite. The writing in the book is well-done and is simple to follow.....

When I go to play golf I'm definitely more relaxed and more focused because of what I learned and practiced from this book.

{Yoga for Golfers: A Unique Mind-Body Approach to Golf Fitness} is a must-buy for all golfers.

Remember to practice the yoga positions because not only will you become more flexible, this also can contribute to having a peaceful mind both on and off the golf course.

Another great book which made me improve at golf is

{The Ultimate Golf Instruction Guide: Key Techniques for Becoming a Zero Handicap Golfer or Better} by Leonardi

This book was a also a total breakthrough for me...I've reduced my handicap because of it.

I began teaching a yoga for golfers class at a golf-spa resort this summer. Even though I am an experienced teacher I felt I needed confirmation that the poses/sequences I offered were on par (pardon the pun). I looked at several 'yoga for golfers' books and decided this one would be good. This book is written by a person who grew up with golf and taught yoga at a spa resort herself for many, many years. What was most useful to me were the sequences in back of the book. I would study and practice her sequences, modify them and use them in my class. It was great! The book talks quite a bit about golf and has some great quotes in it. For me this book was well worth the money. It has given me the boost I needed to feel confident teaching this specific group,golfers, yoga. And I've learned a bit about the game/sport

This book is intended for any golfer, regardless of handicap, who wants to improve their game (distance, accuracy, and consistency) and their fitness to play the game without serious injury. I consider it one of the best sports and fitness books I've read. It contains a lot of excellent information, useful exercises, and is written in a very easy-to-read style. This book has helped me significantly to improve the fluidity and mechanics of my swing, relax during play, and to improve my strength, flexibility, and mental approach. Although I can't know what it will do for your handicap, I feel confident that it not only will help you reduce it but also increase your overall fitness and enjoyment of this very challenging sport.

Katherine Roberts' book has been a very good journey over all, for my body and my state of mind. Passionate about golf, as I am, I can appreciate her obvious love for the game, and how she has translated so much valuable experiential knowledge of how the body stretches and strengthens into a form that golfers can actually use, step by step. I highly recommend it. It's easy to follow, and to the point. The breathing and mindfulness exercises are invaluable to my short game.

I'm not a golfer, but I bought this book for my father. I'm recovering from some back problems, and have been looking for a gentle way to get back into shape so that I can resume my regular exercise classes and do all the the things I love to do in the summer. This book has been an amazing help. I've done a little yoga in the past, so I have a passing familiarity with it and that's why I picked up this book. I love the way Katherine has linked the yoga poses, theory, and breathing to gaining strength and/or flexibility in specific areas of the body and for specific movements. I'm going through the chapters one at a time and using her instruction to create my own personalized shape-up program. Her explanations and the illustrations--and, in particular, the way the book is organized--make it easy for me to find poses and movements that work with the exercises my physical therapist has given me for my back. I feel a LOT better after just a month. I think I almost have a working body again!

very good book with lots of good information on how and why yoga postures enhance a golfers game. The golf swing is very complex and puts a tremendous amount of stress on the body ... this book explains that well and the benefits of a good yoga program if you're going to play golf. It also has 3 levels ... level 1 for somebody new to yoga and not in a regular exercise routine, level 2 for the mid-level routine person and level 3 for the one with experience with some yoga and in a good physical exercise routine.

With her brilliant correlation between yoga and golf, Katherine Roberts displays a profound understanding of both disciplines. This book is intelligently written and presented in a user-friendly fashion. I particularly enjoyed the attention to attitude and intention which are so important in any athletic endeavor, in addition to the specific techniques to improve flexibility and strength. I tremendously enjoyed reading it and immediately felt inspired.

I feel healthier and wiser after reading this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who feels ready to move their physical health and golf game to the next level. Do something nice for yourself...start this program!
