Hip Drives Yoga Pose for Increased Mobility
The major muscled groups of the body that contribute to power are your glutes. Before we begin to strengthen the glutes we need to have proper flexibility in the hips. In addition to distance mobility in the hips supports a consistent rotation of the hips, potentially effecting sway and slide in your swing.
The new yoga for golfers workouts incorporate movement of the body in all three planes of motion. It combines the cutting edge functional modality of NG360 (Nike Golf’s performance program) and Yoga for Golfers.
This pose called hip drives is one of three motions I use to gain more mobility in the hips. I use this pose with all my golfers and MLB players.
Begin on your left knee and place your right heel in line with your left knee. If you have any issues with your knee place a small towel under your knee for protection.
Draw your navel to your spine, activating the core and keep your posture upright. Inhale as you drive your hip to the right, exhale to the starting position. Note: if your hip motion is restricted your right knee will move inward. Keep the right knee moving as if between two planes of glass.
Repeat ten times and switch sides.
Move slowly, breathe deeply in and out through the nose.
