The onset and long duration of the pandemic has created an unprecedented change in the lives of athletes. Change can be traumatic when unexpected and requires resilience to not only survive but to thrive. And, if you're a competing athlete now is the time to thrive and get ahead of your competition.
What is resilience? Resilience is the ability to recover quickly from difficulties or change. In short, it can also be described as toughness. Whether big or small, change and struggle is inevitable. If you're experiencing change because of the cancellation of sports or having to decide on what college to attend, it's crucial that you stick to a training regimen both physically and mentally.
One of our volleyball athletes, Sonia, came to us in need of building confidence in herself and those around her. With some tough decisions on her plate, we decided to create a personalized program for her to boost self esteem through performance meditations and teach her to move mindfully through sport performance and yoga. Within weeks, we saw a drastic increase in strength and overall motor control. Not to mention, her attitude showed a complete positive shift on the court. Through our training modalities, Sonia has now found confidence in herself and her ability to lead her volleyball team. Regardless of the change you're needing to make internally or the change that's presented to you externally, getting on your mat is crucial. And you can get on your mat with us in studio or from the comfort of your own home now.
