ABU DHABI: Golfers in the capital now have the opportunity to improve their physical game through the ancient Eastern practice of yoga at Abu Dhabi Golf Club (ADGC).  Founded on the traditional schools of yoga, the Yoga for Golfers course is led by certified instructor Pem Passa. The lessons will use postures that have been specifically adapted to create a sequence to enhance golf performance.

“The key, in yoga as in golf, is the spine, which is the axis around which all revolves,” says Pem, who has been practicing yoga for more than 22 years.

“We study the movements of the golf swing, look at all the key muscle groups being used and identify the postures that will enhance flexibility, develop strength, create balance and increase range of motion,” he added.

Whilst the mechanics of the golf swing remains the golf professionals’ realm of expertise, club Health and Nutrition Manager, Izzy Boudraa, and instructor Pem are launching Yoga for Golfers for players of all levels and abilities looking to enhance their golf game and fitness levels through increased strength, flexibility and stamina.
