Jupiter, FL, March 29, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Jupiter's Hottest Yoga Studio Gets Golfers Swinging with Better Flexibility, Focus and Strength
Hot Yoga Jupiter invites local golfers -- novice to expert -- to explore the benefits of yoga to improve their game. Going beyond the traditional yoga instruction, Hot Yoga Jupiter offers specialized workshops for golfers and other athletes.
Because perhaps no game is more wrought with mental hazards than Golf, players find 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. Golfers can expect to improve their game by increasing their concentration through the practice of yoga. The mind practices the skill of simply being present in the process, heightening focus and concentration, getting players on top of their game.
"A highly physical game, demanding strength, flexibility and endurance, avid golfers often suffer from back, shoulder, hip, and knee pain. Yoga opens up the hip area, ensuring flexibility and alleviating the stiffness that often travels down to the gluteal muscles and hamstrings, affecting the knees, upper back and shoulders," explains Cassie Aitken, Director and Founder of Hot Yoga Jupiter. Golfers often benefit from strong, flexible hips that can go a long way toward ensuring a stress and injury free golf game.
Yoga teaches simple exercises that helps build strength, stamina and flexibility, whilst giving you the tools to balance mind and body. During a typical yoga session, students will learn exercises that will be useful for leg strength, upper body strength, hip flexors, inner thighs, body alignment, opening and strengthening the entire back, strengthening the arms and shoulders, hips, hamstring, and gluteal strength and elongate the hip flexor and abdominal muscles, knees, feet, and ankles. And of course relaxing the mind and body.
Hot Yoga Jupiter offers golfers benefits that simply cannot be found in any instructional golf video or book - the ability to simply relax and maintain focus on your game. The practice of yoga on the physical body builds strength, stamina, toning, and flexibility as ability to maintain concentration and release stress and tension.
Cassie Aitken, yoga teacher and studio owner of Hot Yoga Jupiter, introduces this unique practice to people who would normally think it was not for them. "This is yoga without the 'tree hugging and incense element. I have devised these lessons after working with Golfers during my time here in south Florida and California. I work through a series of relaxing stretches and with an emphasis on developing awareness and concentration. Once golfers become familiar with my style and the concept, 9 out of 10 began attending routine classes offered at our studio."
With over ten years teaching yoga to the general public and especially athletes, Aitken and offers both the private and group classes, as well as workshops, proving to be popular and very effective for novice and export golfers alike. Classes are also offered at country clubs and residential clubhouses throughout Jupiter and neighboring communities.
