mPEAK Coaching will introduce you to all the formal mindfulness practices offered in the mPEAK course as well as the specific tools and exercises that are most relevant to your personal performance goals. In our 45-minute weekly private phone sessions we’ll continue to build on what’s already working well in your life/ work/ sport as well as explore any obstacles that might be holding you back from performing at your peak. Each week you’ll be coached around deepening your mindfulness practices and integrating the insights you gain from those practices into new perspectives, behaviors and actions.

Who is mPEAK Coaching for?

  • Anyone committed to improving his or her performance in life, health, work or sport
  • Those who’s busy schedule or location prohibits them from attending a group mPEAK course
  • Someone who feels they’d benefit from more personalized attention on specific aspects of their performance
  • Participants who’ve already completed an mPEAK group program and want to continue exploring their edges and strengthening their practices

  • Process and learn from inevitable mistakes and failures
  • Cultivate introceptive body awareness in both stillness and motion
