What is "BE PRESENT - COMPETE"

This course consists of guided meditations, for competitive athletes and performers , helping them access their "flow state" on a more frequent basis, leading to improved results and more thorough enjoyment of their competitive endeavours.

If you compete in sport or another discipline you are possibly always looking for ways to improve your ability to compete at your best, consistently. You may struggle with mental challenges such as poor concentration and focus, anxiety and nerves, low confidence and self esteem, anger issues. All these issues can be overcome through a consistent meditation practice. When meditating we learn to quieten the mind and access our inner stillness, our inner strength, allowing us to live life more in the present and allowing us to compete with more clarity of mind and enjoyment. I designed this meditation programme drawing on my vast experience gained as a professional tennis player, as a coach to top performance athletes and as a yoga and meditation teacher who has practiced yoga and meditation for over 25 years.

FAQ

  • What is this course?

    The Be Present - Compete Programme is an audio programme consisting of 12 guided meditations specifically created for athletes or performers who compete regularly in their sport/discipline and who are looking to overcome challenges they have regarding their mental game. 

  • Who is this course for?

    This programme is for athletes and performers, from amateur to professional level, who compete in a sport or discipline. It is designed to help those who are looking for ways to improve their ability to compete with full awareness and to deal with issues that are affecting their performance when they compete. Issues such as nerves and anxiety, anger, low confidence, poor concentration and focus, and general inconsistencies in performance. With commitment to a consistent practice of the meditations in this programme the practitioner can open up the potential to compete with full clarity of mind. This leads to a fulfilling enjoyment of the sport/discipline and can lead to results that were previously deemed out of their reach. 

  • If I've never meditated before how can this course help me in my sport/discipline?

    The meditations are designed in a way so that anyone from a complete beginner to an experienced meditator can follow along. Through the meditations the practitioner is taken on a journey inwards, helping them to become more aware of their breath, their body and their thoughts. This increased breath, body and mind awareness can help the practitioner recognise habits that aren't serving them. Once that recognition has been made, change can occur. And improvements can be made. Clarity of mind is what's needed for an athlete/performer to be in their "flow state".  Through meditation, competing 'in the zone"  becomes more consistent, anxiety reduces and focus improves.

    There are two pdf documents in the course. The first one welcomes you to the course and it includes advice on how to and what order you should practice the meditations.

Testimonials

- Mareze Joubert, Former Professional Tennis Player and Co-Founder of Get a Grip Tennis Academy

"I met Yvonne while competing on the Women's Tennis Tour. Yvonne always had a calm exterior and an edge over most of us in that front - I always wished I had a little of that! Monica Seles once said that tennis is a 110% in the head and it's the most under trained part of the game. I can't recommend Yvonne's "Be Present - Compete" program enough to any aspiring junior tennis player"

Aisling Kirwan - Ultra Marathon Runner

"Yvonne Doyle is an amazing Yoga teacher but her guided meditations and visualisation techniques in the Be Present - Compete programme, for athletes of all kinds and levels, are simply some of the best I have come across. One very talented woman"

"Yvonne Doyle's meditation for athlete's programme, "Be Present - Compete", is just like her tennis career! Top Drawer!"

Why I created this course

Why I created this course? I have experienced first hand the many mind battles an athlete faces while trying to achieve their goals. Meditation for me became the most important part of my tennis training. No matter how good I felt physically or how well I was hitting the ball, if my mind wasn't right, I was never able to compete near my best. I created this programme because, over the years, as a coach, I was frustrated. Frustrated at my inability to help athletes improve their mental game. I would touch on the common mental issues athletes needed to address and I would advise on solutions but it was never all packaged together.  So I decided to create a package of honest guided  meditations that are created from my experience as a former Professional Athlete, a Coach to players from beginner to professional level, a former Captain of the Irish ladies National Tennis Team and as a Yoga and Meditation teacher.  With commitment to a consistent practice in meditation an athlete can tackle their mental challenges in a mindful way. Self awareness will be enhanced, clarity of mind improved, unlocking their true inner power, resulting in a successful relationship between the athlete and their sport. Results in the competitive arena are then sure to follow. And an enhanced satisfaction in playing the sport can be attained.
