Master Golf with Confidence and Learn from One of America's Top 50 Teachers, Erika Larkin

Hi, I'm Erika Larkin,

I've been playing golf all my life, and I've made it my mission to help make the game easy, enjoyable, and energizing for everyone I teach.

While I loved competing at the D1 and PGA levels, my true passion is in teaching others how to unlock that natural, easy swing that is consistent, reliable, efficient, and makes the sport so much more fun.

The people I love helping most are those who want to enjoy playing with their friends, family, and spouse; and want to feel comfortable making new social connections on their golf journey!

People all over the world come to me with the desire to learn… and a bunch of fears of why they might not be able to succeed.

Unlock Your True Potential: Overcome Self-Doubt and Thrive in Your Favorite Sport

Are you tired of feeling like you're always lagging behind, not athletic enough, or too old and stiff to compete with your friends?

Things I commonly hear are:
  • "I'm starting too late! I'll never catch up with my friends."
  • "I'm just not that athletic or flexible."
  • "I'm too old, injured, and stiff."
  • ​"I get so frustrated! Sometimes I love to play, but when a game goes bad, I want to quit."
  • ​"I get so embarrassed when I mess up in front of people. I feel like I'm slowing the game down and worry people won’t want to play with me."

The Good News is You Can Change All of This Quickly

Discover how easy it can be to transform your golf game and start enjoying the sport like never before:
  • You don't need athletic ability
  • You don't need endless hours of practice
  • You don't need fancy equipment
  • ​You just need to experience how basic  pendulum physics  can automate your swing mechanics!
  • ​You just need guidance from myself or my trainers how to simplify your swing by reducing tension and manipulation that will unlock effortless power.
  • ​You will be amazed to find that once you discover your true swing, all your excuses melt away, and golf becomes more fun!

What is your "True Swing"?

It's your natural, effortless, simple movement that helps you hit amazing shots consistently!

It's about you getting out of the way and letting your best swing just flow through you.

When you work with me and my trainers, we help you experience this True Swing first hand... and show you how to make it permanent.

I've never met someone who couldn't find their True Swing... And everyone who learns this is just amazed at how enjoyable the game of golf can be.

The Secret to a True Swing is to stop 
"trying" to be perfect!

The last thing you need is someone leaning over your shoulder saying "Relax! Relax!"

You already know that being stiff and tense doesn't help you swing better.

The problem is that your body has a lot of tension locked away in it that can't be released simply from deep breaths and stretching. In modern living, we all have decades of experiences of tensing up, physically and mentally.

The good news is you don't have to let go of every bit of physical tension to play great golf.

Just a few adjustments can make an enormous difference in how you play… even if your posture still needs work or you have mobility problems.

There’s a way you can train your body to allow the perfect swing to just flow through it.

Why Golf is So Impossible Before

You Find Your Swing

Before you find your true swing, the game of golf can feel so defeating, that it might as well be rigged. For some, every swing feels like a roll of the dice, where you never know where the ball will go (or if you'll hit at all).

For others, every swing feels like a moment of truth of whether you're good (or terrible) at the game. Sometimes it even feels like a moment of truth of whether you're a worthy person, period.

Even though we tell ourselves "it's just a game," it's hard not to take it personally when golf doesn't go your way. What a lot of golfers find frustrating is that they can try so many exercises, tactics, and tricks, and nothing seems to work. It's as if they're immune to lessons and help.

The reason why golf is so hard has nothing to do with you. It has nothing to do with your athletic ability, your focus, or even your coordination.

Sure, those things can help... but it's not really what makes a good golfer.

If You Can Drop Your Arms, You Can Have a Great Swing

Imagine you have a ball in your hand. No matter what physical shape you're in, you could drop the ball on the ground right?

Just let the ball roll from your palm to your fingers, and let it fall right out...easy peasy!

Now lift your arms up and let them fall and swing down to meet your body … anyone can do this ! … once again gravity is your friend! 

That's how simple the game of golf can be.

You just get something into motion and then allow it to move through space as it should.

If  you swing your club upwards, with minimal effort...

You can just let it swing down to meet up the ball on its way through... gravity and momentum will work their magic . And the ball sails into the sky...and as cliche as it sounds - let the club do the work! 

Want to hit a different shot ? Change clubs! Want to adjust your trajectory or shot shape? Change your setup with simple adjustments to aim or ball position … but keep one thing the same … let the club fall ( just like your arms) and SWING down and through !

That's how simple it can be.

And there will come a time when -- don't even remember how to play golf the wrong way...

You may even have trouble understanding why everyone else can't play the way you do.

How to Awaken Your Natural Easy Swing
At the True Swing Retreat

Once you unlock your True Swing, there's no going back.

You can't unlearn the natural, easy way of movement. It's with you for life.

As I like to say, “You can’t lose your swing.”

At a True Swing Retreat, you'll be given the full visceral, physical experience of having your mind and body integrated with the game of golf.

Many have tried to learn this through my books and online courses. And I’m happy to report that some get great results.

But the true, permanent transformations come when someone can see what the True Swing looks like up close... and get gently guided into realizing their own true swing.

When you have that physical, hands-on, deep immersion, it's like every cell in your body awakens to the game.

That's where I hear things like.

"I've heard this so many times, but it never really clicked until now"

"I knew this before, but now I feel it"

"I can't believe I hit that shot! I've never done this before!"

There's a lot of reasons why this tends to happen.

Unlock Your Golf Potential with In-Person Training

Experience the transformative power of hands-on instruction and discover the subtle adjustments that make all the difference:
  • In person, you can see how I and my trainers move from every angle. There's only so much you can gather from a video screen or photograph
  • You get subtle physical adjustments that make all the difference in the world. Just a tap on your elbow can bring a realization that knocks five strokes off your score
  • You get a True Swing trainer spotting the parts of your body you didn't even know were tense. This lets you instantly surrender to the perfect movement
  • ​You get to watch other students doing the exercises. You'll see one finally drop his tension, and get an insight of how you can apply this to yourself

What to Expect During Your Transformation Into a True Swing Golfer

There is a moment where everything just "clicks."

It may happen right at the retreat, the weekend after, or even a couple months after.

You're at the golf course, standing at the tee... with the sun just beginning to dip below the trees.

You step into your pre-swing movement, and something just feels different.

As you line up your shot, something inside tells you to forget everything and just swing.

You take a deep breath, relax your shoulders, and let it flow naturally.

The moment the club hits the ball, you know it's right. There's a smoothness to your movement that wasn't there before, an effortless grace that makes you feel like the club is an extension of your own body.

The ball sails through the air in the perfect arc... and it lands right where you imagined it would.

You had always thought you would jump for joy if this moment ever happened, but for some reason, you just smile instead. This isn't a one-time accomplishment to cheer for. This now is your game. In fact, this is you.

You've become the golfer you were meant to be, and you realize it was always within you.

From that moment on, you have a newfound confidence. Your steps are light and your mind is clear.

Every shot you take is made with a feeling of wellbeing and joy. When you play with friends, you don't even really need to focus on the shot. You can just enjoy yourself and let the shot take care of itself.

You even find yourself "holding back" with some people who are still learning, because you don't want to outshine them too much.

The golf course is now your territory, and you truly feel like you belong.

This is your true swing - natural, confident, and uniquely yours.

Unlock Your Golf Potential with In-Person Training

Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced, you'll find that attending a True Swing Retreat opens up a natural, intuitive ability in your game that you didn't know was possible.

This is not simply a "seminar" on how to hit better. You will get plenty of "how-to" instruction, of course.

But the real value comes from the experiential, hands-on teaching that allows you to absorb the principles and practices into your bones.

Remember that your true swing is already in you.

Once we awaken that swing, your goal will be to continue practicing so you keep getting better.

We advise you to spend a lot more time practicing after an event to completely cement the lessons into your being.

Inside a True Swing Retreat

Join us for an immersive experience where you'll master essential golf techniques, from perfecting your swing to enhancing your mental game:
  • The Power of the Pendulum: This is the basis of all True Swing theory. When you learn to let gravity do its thing, your swing takes care of itself.
  • Warmups that Awaken: Your body has a natural physical intelligence. The way you warm up allows your body to tap into that awareness, so you can perform your best from the first shot.
  • Foundational Movements & Basic Pendulum Drills that prime the neuromuscular system to give you your best accuracy.
  • Baseline Video Capture: We film how you're swinging now, so we know exactly what you need to work on. (Plus you'll be amazed at how much better your swing gets within a couple days.)
  • Small, Medium, and Big Energy Swings: The secret to only using just enough energy to get your best result. This protects you from exhaustion, and makes it so much easier to relax while playing.
  • Finding Your Flow: Signature exercises that tap into the Unconscious Mind for automatic achievement.
  • "The Glue" - Rhythm, Tempo, and Finish. With these three locked in, your shots become more consistent than ever.
  • Woods & Drivers: The easy selection process for which club to use. When you see how this works, you'll be stunned you never noticed it before.
  • Intuitive Geometry: The no-math way of figuring out the perfect arc from your tee to the destination.
  • Landscape Leverage: How to get hills & terrain on your side - no matter where your position is - so the course becomes your partner in helping your ball get to the end point.
  • Pro-Putting: The way to make putting a simple "closing the deal," where you get your ball in the hole without thinking about it.
  • Instinctive Accuracy: How to use the AimPoint Green Reading System that gives your brain a GPS for each putting shot.
  • And Much, Much, More…

"Do I Book a 2-Day or 3-Day?"

If you're deciding between the 2-Day and 3-Day programs, consider the following:
  • If you can make the investment, the 3-Day program is highly recommended.
  • ​The 3-Day program get you more time with me and my trainers means less work at home to "lock in" and grow your improvements with our 3:1 student to coach ratio.
  • ​The 3-Day program guarantees we will spend time on the course for practical application of your skills and new found True Swing!
  • ​The 3-Day program includes an extra special Balance Training Session to solidify your stance and hit great shots.
  • ​If it's 2-Day or nothing, book the 2-Day! It's better to sign up for what you can now and return later if scheduling permits.
  • ​We get repeat attendees because it becomes wonderful, even addictive, to watch your swing get easier, more relaxed, and more accurate.

Feel the Difference in Your Swing

Look, I can't guarantee you'll win your next local tournament.

What I can guarantee is a transformative experience where you play better, have healthier, more relaxed movements, and enjoy the game of golf more than ever before.

I truly believe you will FEEL the difference on the very first day, that you'll get the first part of that magical "click" where you can tell that nothing will ever be the same.

So if you feel like this is what you've been looking for, book a slot (they sell out fast!) and come meet me at a True Swing Retreat.

If at the end of Day 1, you do not feel like you are getting what you came for, let me know. I'll happily give you a full refund, and you can keep any goodies that you received on your first day. You'll even get to keep your video-analysis and any notes I've taken on your progress so far.

That's how confident I am that you'll be thrilled at your results.

But the one thing you must do is book your slot now. Since these events almost always sell out, I'll be raising the prices very soon. And at some point, I won't be able to personally teach these programs at all. I'll always make sure I have great trainers available, but this might be your one chance to work with me personally.

I hope to see you on the green!
