Think. Breathe. Act.
This method of mindfulness in action is our original approach applied to the game of golf to create a better understanding of strategic feel and learning.
Every one of us is increasingly barraged with distractions, yet not many of us know how to consciously calm ourselves in the midst of our most chaotic moments to let the mind “re-boot.” Mindfulness is paying attention on purpose, in the present moment and in a non-judgmental open way. This is the antidote to stress and constant fight or flight responses. By focusing attention, without distraction, people experience a greater sense of presence, confidence and connection and are able to align and engage for a more focused purpose.
Transition from the mechanics of habitual movement
to physical sensation and embodied awareness.
Thinking in a strategic way with conscious breathing helps you play and swing with your whole body. Our awareness of thoughts is a discipline that takes deliberate practice. When we deliberately practice purposeful thinking, we envision moving thoughts into place.
Shift from shallow, unconscious breathing to deliberate breathing
in coordination with thought and action.
When we pay attention to our breathing we are able to listen to the rhythm of life within. Knowing our own rhythm allows us to focus our performance. Breathing brings balance and understanding of technique.
Transfer from the reliance on innate talent to
the power of purposeful practice.
When proceeded by targeted Thinking and Breathing, Acting without additional thought will become instinctive. This allows native talent to grow through efficient practice techniques.

“Sports and movement take place in the outside world. How we perceive them and what we think of them take place in the inside world. Mediation gives us the space to contemplate our perception of these things.“ – Joshua Dunn
