Life is Short—
Make your Optimal State Your Default State.

Meet Cara Bradley

Have you ever had one of those days where you’re just… “on”? Where your mood is bright, you connect with others and you get so much accomplished that, at the end of the day, your to-do list is complete. Unfortunately, if you’re like most people, you can’t predict or control when those days will happen— so you cross your fingers and hope they happen when you need them the most.

The focus of my work is to teach you ways to get “mentally fit” and experience more of these “on” days – days where you’re operating at your optimal state—days when you feel and perform your best.

I’m the author of the bestselling book: On The Verge: Wake up, Show up and Shine (New World Library). In 2020, I was named one of the “12 Most Powerful Women in the Mindfulness Movement” by Mindful Magazine.

My signature body-brain strategies have led to partnerships with the Flow Genome Project, and with wearable and wellness brands including Insight Timer, RoundGlass, Muse and Happify.

My work in mental fitness stems from over 15 years as the founder and director of Verge Yoga & Meditation Center and as a mental strength coach to over a dozen Division-I collegiate sports teams including the 2009 National champion Villanova University Football team and 2016 and 2018 National Champion Men’s Basketball team.

Finally, as a former competitive figure skater, I turned professional in my teens and had an absolute blast in my twenties finding flow while traveling the world teaching and performing for Rollerblade ®.
