Pillars of Mindfulness
1 : 1 Mindfulness Coaching
Living in the present moment
The only time you have is ‘right now’. It’s easy to understand this at an intellectual level. Mindfulness Meditation allows you to apply this in your daily life. Mindfulness is a state of mind that can be cultivated through practice and deeper ‘knowing’ of yourself and your environment. Throughout my teachings, I always mention what buddha says ‘”don’t take my word for it. Experience true wisdom for yourself yourself”
Mindfulness Meditation for Athletes
Awareness and Non-judgemental view
Mindfulness meditation originated from Buddhist teachings. Awareness of your inner self leads to insight into your patterns of reactions. Once you are aware, you will learn to be compassionate and kind while remaining non-judgemental towards yourself. How you treat yourself is ultimately how you treat others. Your awareness will create a wave of kindness and compassion around you.
Mindfulness Meditation Workshops
Attention and Intention
Attention is like a light torch in a dark forest. You will only see the part that is lit up. sharpening your attention is crucial to cultivating a Mindfulness. Human beings are born with basic good intentions which are often clouded by biases, negative emotions and thoughts. Mindfulness allows you to clear these clouds of negativity and embrace your true good intentions. Intentional living counters the negativity that comes with biases we have developed over time.

Mindfulness Meditation Training in Sports
Mindfulness Meditation Training in Sports is a Six- week Programme that consists of weekly session of 1 hour every week or 30minutes twice per week. Athletes are taught how to meditate and expected to meditate for at least 10 minutes daily between our weekly sessions.
I have developed this workshop based on grounded research that shows a positive correlation between mindfulness meditation and improved concentration. It has also shown reduced burnout, injuries and improved motivation levels among athletes. The experiences of ‘flow’ where an athlete is fully engaged in the activity is often experienced among athletes who practice mindfulness meditation. Other commonly observed benefits of mindfulness meditation in sports performance are described below
Cultivating a Mindful approach requires you to be able to control
where you opt to focus your attention. Research shows that the
repetitive practice of bringing your attention back to the present
moment during meditation helps you to concentrate more
effectively in sporting situations. Mindfulness is about living in
the present moment. You will learn to become aware of the
present moment rather than reacting to regret (passed moment) or
anxiety (future moment) or simply daydreaming. Throughout the
workshop, you will be learning different types of meditations.
Your ability to concentrate will improve with each workshop
because you will learn to expand your present moment awareness
and learn to shift your attention with greater efficiency.
Sports performance is all about thriving in difficult situations. However, the tiniest reactions in crucial moments can lead to great regret and disappointment. The Mindfulness Meditation Training in Sports (MMTS) workshop is designed to train your minds to remain balanced in every situation, good or bad. Meditation increases your ability to cope with the experience of negative thoughts and emotions. Once you start practising Mindfulness Meditation, you will develop the ability to be in a state of ‘equilibrium’ where you will see every situation as a new and neutral situation. It is learning how to find your ‘calm’ amidst the chaos
Adapting and adjusting to whatever situation occurs in your sporting experience is probably one of the most advanced mindsets that you need to develop and maintain. Through meditation, you will learn to accept and let go what is ‘irrelevant’ and bring your attention to what is important. In stressful situations, we often start functioning on ‘automatic pilot’ and often fail to observe the cues to changing situations in the present moment. What if your new ‘automatic pilot’ could be changed to being more adaptable to whatever was coming your way? Mindfulness Meditation Training has the power to change the existing mental and behaviour patterns to make you adaptable to new situations.
