Mental Fitness  High-pressure Performance  Managing Stress  'Being in the Flow’

For Professional and Elite Sports Teams and Athletes

They say that in sports, 90 percent of performance is mental. 


Yet, we spend the majority of our time, effort and money on physical & technical training.


That leaves little time to focus on our mental game. 

Phil Jackson famously used mindfulness training to develop effective mental performance skills, to coach the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers to a total of 10 NBA championships.

Other well-known cases where mindfulness did enhance positive performance outcomes include the Boston Red Sox, Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore Ravens, SF Giants world series pitcher Tim Lincecum, shortstop for the NY Yankees Derek Jeter, and the US National BMX team including 2016 Olympic gold medalist Connor Fields, and many more.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, she asked how did you create such great teams, Phil Jackson replied:
“I approached it with mindfulness, … as much as we pump iron and build physical strength, we need to build our mental strength. We did this for focus, to have one pointed attention – so that we can be in concert with one another. So when things go wrong, you sit on the bench, you take a breath and you reset yourself. You do this through mindfulness….”
