Golf Fitness with Yoga
"No thank you!" That would have been the smiling denial of Dorothee Haering two years ago. "Me and yoga; sitting on the floor twisting my limbs into knots?" Unimaginable! But things tend to take their own way. Her physiotherapist sent her to yoga and she discovered all the benefits for her game.
A yoga book written by a golfer is, of course, not a run-of-the-mill yoga book with mainly traditional asanas, the physical yoga poses. On the contrary, this special exercise program is tailored specifically to golfers' needs. With a balanced mix of traditional techniques and modern training principles as well as the easy-to-follow instructions described step-by-step, this book is eminently suitable for non-yogis. The subjects "Golfer's Elbow: No thanks" might as interest many afflicted golfers as the training tips to more mobility of the hip.
Freshly edited and with numerous photographs specially taken for these exercises, this book reflects Dorothee Haering's great passion for golf. A book by a golfer for those golfers who want to work on their physical and mental attitudes in an easy-going fashion.

Roll out your mat! Your age is of no consequence. If you can play golf then you can practice yoga, irrespective of your individual constitution and physical condition. All you need is motivation and perseverance in order to discover yoga as a new source of energy for your golf game. Move your game!
Dorothee Haering is a photographer and owner of the graphics and marketing agency "bildhaft", in Munich, Germany. Golf has accompanied she from her cradle, and most of her family has the bug too. Her grandfather practiced enthusiastically on a chipping green in his garden, and her father, a successful team player, regularly took her with him on the golf course when she was a child. At the weekends she was a proud caddy and accompanied "her players" throughout the tournaments and also briefly took part in junior training. Ever since she saw Jack Niklaus play golf 1972 in Munich she knew: she wanted to become a Golf Professional. Later, life had other plans for her and there followed an involuntary golf-intermission lasting thirty-eight years until the golf addiction broke out again with a vengeance. Her goal for her (second) golf career: she wanted to break 80.
In the book project "Move your Game", Dorothee Haering has gathered together the information that she would have liked to have possessed at the beginning of her own golf career. It would have made following her plan to a single handicap more efficient.
