Looking for a way to better connect your mind and body.

I am now offering Mindful Sports Performance Enhancement!

As athletes, we systematically and rigorously train our bodies.  However, even though we often hear people say things like “sports are 90% mental,” we typically don’t devote any time to mental preparation.  Mindful Sport Performance Enhancement (MSPE) is your opportunity to change that!

 

MSPE is a cutting-edge mental training program designed for athletes.  Drawing on research from the sport sciences, psychology, and neurology, it provides specific guidance in building mindfulness skills essential to consistent, optimal performance. 

  • The program's structure includes:

    • Sessions rooted in the tradition of Jon Kabat-Zinn's mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), but adapted to be unique and specific to athletic performers

    • Each session includes emphases on learning, engaging, and practicing core mindfulness skills in ways that maximize their integration into practice, competition, and daily life 

    • Exercises are taught in an intuitive sequence that moves progressively from sedentary practice to mindfulness in motion, culminating in participants applying MSPE techniques directly to execution in their sport - for example, the running stride, golf putt, tennis serve, or soccer dribbling

    • Guidelines are provided for building a daily home practice, to help participants train their minds in the same dedicated way that they train their bodies
