MINDSET & VISUALIZATION STRATEGIST
Foster self-belief and mental agility
Confidently adapt to high-pressure situations
Make important decisions in a split second when it matters most
Are you ready to
Overcome mental pressures and difficult demands
Through a series of questions, I work with you to identify and address the underlying problems you know exist but don’t necessarily talk about. This allows me to start to treat the core issue instead of just the symptoms.
Next, I create a fully specialized strategy based on your goals and issues you are attempting to overcome. This includes tactics for your sport, mental health and home life.
Using scientifically proven techniques, I design personalized visualizations to target multiple challenges. Clients will also learn to create and adjust their own visualizations, which builds their confidence and problem-solving skills.
I don't even know if I'd gotten to the competition if it wasn't for the sessions with Christi
What’s valuable about what Christi does, is recognizing that we are not robots. We are people. People naturally just go up and down. You wake up in a pretty much a different mood every day. Your body tends to follow your mind and our sport is massively mental. She gives you different tactics like visualization, mood charts and nonverbal communication tools for different situations that has strengthened my partnership in ice dance. These tools have been helpful to create deeper understanding and communication between my partner and me, allowing us to navigate the challenges of competition as a united front.
One of the worst things that can happen, happened at probably one of the worst times. But I learned tools through her and only her to be able to actually continue with my life and not let everything amalgamate into a mess. We skated the best ever we ever have and we finished fourth at Junior Worlds. And I don't even know if I'd gotten to the competition if it wasn't for the sessions with Christi in those times.
Invaluable life lessons and a newfound sense of self-awareness and confidence
I began working with Christi after seeing some of her work with the Road to Gold program on Instagram. As a researcher and neuroscientist myself, I began reading up on the science behind visualization and was compelled by the evidence to add it to my skating regimen. Christi was quick to get a read on me as an individual and was able to adapt our sessions and her techniques to my specific needs. I went from popping, on average, 4/7 jumps in my program to being able to do consistent run-throughs rotating, on average, 6/7 jumps and leave the ice feeling a sense of accomplishment and self-satisfaction. I rely on her visualization recordings to get me relaxed and focused before I skate and can hear her saying “emotions aren’t logical” and “adapt to the chaos confidently” every time I feel my performance anxiety start to creep back up. Christi is a rose among thorns in the skating world and our sessions together provided me with invaluable life lessons and a newfound sense of self-awareness and confidence.
Aimie Epoch and Christi Powell's Rotation Mindset Workshop addresses what to do when struggling common mental obstacles in figure skating: popping jumps and circling.
The workshop covers the following material:
Education around why skaters pop and circle in the first placeIdentify why you’re popping
The importance of allowing yourself to make mistakes
