Body, Mind and Golf at Nu-Yoga

Proper alignment and posture is crucial for golfers. There’s a lot to be aware of such as setting a firm foundation, hinging, shoulder and hip rotation and executing the golf swing with consistency and confidence. Yoga offers the opportunity to focus on specific needs. With practice the body and mind become steady, balanced, and harmonious like the golf swing.

Join Sally Grillo, RYT and Vincent Grillo, PGA professional, for a complete package of yoga postures, breathing techniques and a golf lesson. This four-part series includes: “Set a Foundation” in which the feet, legs, pelvis, and core are the focus; “Turn with Confidence” includes twists, backbends, forward bends, and core strength with focus on spinal rotation and chest expansion to prompt excellent golf technique and a balanced swing; “Stability Creates Freedom in the Golf Swing” includes a flow of yoga postures for golfers to create fluidity, flexibility, stability, precision and control; and the series concludes with “Take It to the Course” which includes a golf lesson with Vincent at Oak Hills Golf Course, located at 165 Fillow Street in West Norwalk.
