SOPHROLOGY & SPORT
Do you know what the "Peak Performance Zone" is? We have heard top sportsmen and sportswomen in their field speak about having experienced being in the zone. Their game is flowing and they perform in a trance-like state with incredible focus and transformation in their performance. Getting to the peak performance zone is easily achieved by training in Sophrology. Keeping calm under pressure is the difference between winning and losing.
Many top athletes today are using sophrology to improve their game. We don't always hear about it because they like to keep their cards close to their chests with good reason! It is very competitive after all in the professional world of sport!
Sophrology was introduced into sport by Dr. Raymond Abrezol. He was asked to train in secret four of the Swiss ski champions taking part in the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble. Three of the athletes ended up on the podium with Olympic medals and only then revealed their Sophrology training to the world press.
Why Use Sophrology in Sport?
The mind is very powerful and is probably the most important muscle to work out when it comes to professional sport! Top athletes are using mindful meditation to strengthen the mind. This is what makes the difference between a good athlete and a world-class athlete. When it all boils down – strength of mind is what helps when the pressure is on. Mental strength is as important as physical strength.
