Finding the Sweet Spot – EvoSwing Golf

Finding the Sweet Spot – EvoSwing Golf

One of the best experiences in golf is when the ball launches skyward off the “sweet spot” of the club face.  The sound and feel of a purely struck drive or crisply trapped iron can be the source of inspiration for many hours of practice on the range. As a teacher, it never ceases to amaze me how few of my new students actually know the correct location of the sweet spot on both the club and the ball!  So before we explore what our swing needs to do to produce pure contact, let’s make sure our picture of the optimum strike location on club and ball is correct! The ideal contact point on the irons (we will be looking at the woods next week) is the middle of groove 4 of the club face (see above). The sweet spot of the ball is back center of the ball (see below). In order to get the sweet spot of the club to match up with the sweet spot of the...

Yoga’s Role in Rehabilitation

Yoga’s Role in Rehabilitation

When yoga expert Rodney Yee broke his ankle in 2005, he drew on all of his yoga rehab training and studies in yoga rehabilitation and related practices to help his body heal. Here’s why this remarkable therapeutic complement to conventional methods of treating injury can help you rehabilitate an injury, relieve pain and get back in action. Yoga is fundamentally different from conventional medicine in its approach to injury. Rather than attempt to isolate the cause of an injury to a single factor and to correct it using a specific cure, yoga aims to treat injury by working with the body’s natural healing systems and improving health on all levels. Asanas, or yoga movements, relax and strengthen muscles and massage internal organs; pranayama, or focused breathing, delivers oxygenated blood to injured areas; and relaxation and meditation calm the mind and reduce pain in the form of tension. Yoga’s Role in Rehab With professional instruction and a commitment to an ongoing practice, yoga has been shown to rehabilitate torn muscles, broken...

Adios Ski Season: Many Highs, One Low – BraveSkiMom.com

Adios Ski Season: Many Highs, One Low – BraveSkiMom.com

For the past month, I’ve been looking for the “perfect” way and “perfect” day to end my ski season. On Friday, I found it at Arapahoe Basin, Colorado. Thanks to a cosmic convergence, my son’s sports schedule took us to Summit County during a week when this year’s crazy weather was not only seasonable, but snowfall was relatively abundant. While neither the Pallavicini face nor Montezuma Bowl, nor really anything steep was open (not nearly enough coverage), the day was relatively cold, the snow was soft and fresh and it felt like February for most of the day. By 3:00 p.m., the snow on the lower runs was softening just a little — just enough to turn everyone into expert mogul skiers. But it was never slushy or sticky and well worth the effort. As I tweeted to a friend in the Denver area: Get Thee to A Basin.  Arapahoe Basin will stay open through May and into June conditions permitting, but for all intents and purposes, our season is now done....
