Heartmath PROVIDER

Heartmath is a company in California that studies the power of the heart. Starting with simple self-regulation skills such as focus and breathing we can see the instant effects on our heart and nervous system. These skills when properly applied will significantly reduce the effects of stress on performance and health. Heartmath also teaches how the heart acts like a second brain and when we are using right thinking we can finally answer the question: "What does your heart say?"

Certified Interactive Metronome Provider

I am an interactive
metronome
certified PROVIDER

The Interactive Metronome is a program that teaches one to keep a beat, and when the brain and body learn how to keep a beat we see improvement in a host of skills. With simple exercises such as clapping and tapping your feet to an electronic beat the IM shows if you are early or late in relation to the tone. As timing improves so does concentration and focus as well as balance and coordination which improve athletic and academic performance.

This gets to the heart of my practice, the combination of Heartmath and the Interactive Metronome. It is hard work, but the results are immediate, quantifiable and will last you a lifetime. When these skills are learned together the results are amazing.
The brain loves to keep a beat. Unless you are a musician or a dancer, we really never learn how to keep a beat. The Interactive Metronome gets the body and brain into rhythm therefore improving concentration and coordination.
I will show you how the heart thoughts of Love, Gratitude and Forgiveness affect the nervous system and how to use them to replace the thoughts of fear, worry, self doubt etc... I will explain the concept that "Thoughts are Things" and how every thought manifests in our body, how you change hormone production reducing adrenaline and cortisol while increasing DHEA and Oxytocin.
These sessions will get you into the "Here and Now" while improving your performance mentally and physically. It WILL reduce test taking anxiety and those choking moments before a big moment in your sport.

This package is Heartmath training with an intense focus on Heart Feeling. Learning what thoughts work and what thoughts don’t, is the key to sustaining peak performance. This is really what I am all about, thoughts are things that make up our reality. It’s as simple as this; if you are thinking good thoughts life is good, if you are thinking negative thoughts life will seen negative. When we can stop and replace negative looping thoughts with positive, productive, reinforcing thoughts, our performance improves in all areas of our lives. Brainstorm Jupiter is a great compliment to other practices such as meditation and yoga. It gives you access to physiological coherence anytime and anywhere without anyone knowing. This will become your secret weapon to peak performance.
Being in conscious control of our mind, body and spirit allows us to be fully present in the here and now, this is where peak performance happens, this is being in the zone. John’s combination of Heartmath and the Interactive metronome have proven to be very effective for all athletes and students who are striving to be the best they can be.
