On the Mark Show Notes
About this Episode
Carter Miles is a modern day Yogi and a professional Yoga Therapist. Based in Austin, TX. he helps people and athletes to “Move Better, Breathe Better and Feel Better” and he joins #OntheMark to do the same with you.
Carter explains the mechanics of yoga – moving bodyweight against elastic resistance – and why it is beneficial to golfers for better flexibility and mobility in strength.
He also dives into Breathing (Good Breathing Patterns, Nose vs Mouth Breathing, and Diaphragmatic Breathing) and Restorative Yoga practices to reduce tension and calm the Central Nervous System.
He explains how the body is designed to heal itself and how it either exists in a Stressed State or a Healing State and how, through good life habits and yoga, you can live in the latter more often.
Carter also illustrates two basic yoga shapes that will target rotation and improve your golf swing. He explains how to do a Twisting Pose in two ways – the Supine Twist and the Closed Twist.
