What you'll do

We all get nervous or anxious before competition or performance. Whether that's on the ice, in the classroom or on the field, it's important to be able to manage our thoughts and feelings. I will speak to the importance of mindfulness in my sport, what it means to me to be mindful, and the techniques I use to centre myself before competitions.

Grab your yoga mat, we are about to get moving. I will lead a mindful movement session full of stretches and yoga poses that focus on bringing your attention to your mind, body and breath.

The strategies in this Virtual Experience were inspired by Classroom Champions’ Social and Emotional Learning Foundations Curriculum. Classroom Champions pairs Olympians and Para Olympians with underserved classrooms across North America to help kids understand the real-world application of skills like perseverance, goal setting, and leadership through this powerful mentorship.

I’m a highly driven Olympic athlete who sets intention for purposeful and mindful work. I’m a multiple World Cup medalist in Skeleton and a Team Competition World Championships medalist.

I use yoga, meditation, and mindfulness techniques to increase mental performance during competitions. I believe that being aware of your "now" helps you regulate emotions and reactions in difficult situations.

I am also an Athlete Mentor for Classroom Champions. I volunteer my time to teach social and emotional learning skills within Classroom Champions’ Curriculum, underscoring the value of dreams, grit, and perseverance through the power of mentorship.

This is definitely one of my Covid highlights, to be able to do stretches, mindfulness and have a beautiful conversation with Mimi, I will relish this experience. My 11year old did the session with me and he was beaming ear to ear after the session, Mimi was able to engage him both in the Yoga( even though he has never done it before) and the conversation. If you're thinking about it, just do it you won't regret it I promise 🙂

Mimi's mindful yoga was amazing. It was challenging and relaxing at the same time. The time with her was really special. Thank you

A really lovely and surreal experience, to practice yoga with an Olympian via Zoom... A meeting of three, like-minded ladies, in one place, although 1000s of miles apart: Fittleworth, UK, meets Calgary, AB, meets Chicago, US. Once in a lifetime! The upside of a pandemic...

This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Mimi was kind (and patient) enough to host this experience for my campers, ages 5-12, during our "Olympics Week" at camp! The campers were so excited to meet an Olympic Athlete, and many were introduced to Mindful Movement for the first time. With anxiety levels rising in children during this Pandemic, I felt Mimi did a phenomenal job giving our kiddos skills and tools to help reduce stress and anxiety as they get ready to transition into a very new school year. This was absolutely perfect and she made it completely age-appropriate and personal. One of my campers even told her grandma at pick up that she made a new friend named Mimi ❤️ Truly a great experience!!

Mimi was wonderful! What a great (and easy, yet challenging) workout. She is so thoughtful and it was great to hear about her Olympic experience and what drove her to living a more mindful life.
