Mississauga, Canada, July 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Golf is taking on a renewed focus as a sport with a strong fitness component and this year the Canadian Junior Golf Association enlisted Claudine LaRochelle-Reischl of Yoga for Golfers to train all 16 participants in the three day Lipton Brisk Canada Cup held July 16-18, 2012 at LochNess Links in Welland Ontario.
The training sessions took place before the event, encompassing stretching and strengthening as well as breathing techniques and mental focus. Yoga is popular with both celebrity golfers and club enthusiasts today, offering the possibility of extra yards on the drive through core strength. After a day on the links, golfers learn techniques to help them bounce back, particularly important on an event like the Lipton Brisk that lasts more than one day. Golfers wishing to remain injury-free (and every age group gets injuries) find the techniques invaluable.
The golfers, all in their teens, are positive about the experience, noting that the possibility of being more stable and balanced can improve their game. “This is a very progressive and positive step by the CJGA,” Ms. LaRochelle-Reischl notes. “It’s a first.”
