Meet Cara Bradley
There are many skilled peak performance coaches, mindfulness teachers and movement instructors in the world. Cara Bradley is uniquely all three. Also a business owner and former pro skater for Rollerblade, Cara’s three decades in business, sports, yoga and meditation offer a distinct perspective on leadership training and personal development.
Cara’s body-mind training is extraordinarily simple and effective. She gets people out of their heads and into their bodies as fast as possible. In so doing, she facilitates embodied flow experiences—a spectrum of optimal states of wellbeing and performance. Using her signature mini-win strategies, Cara guides executives, elite athletes and ordinary speedy folks, how to drop below their everyday busy mind, tune into their full-body, full-sensory intelligence and live and work in flow.
Her unique strengths integrate movement, breath and mindfulness to offer high performers simple take-away tools in a language style that matches their fast-paced, high achieving personalities. Her training sessions are highly engaging, high energy and spirited.
Cara is the author of the best-selling book, On The Verge: Wake Up, Show Up, and Shine, and the founder of the award-winning Verge Yoga Center. As a teacher and speaker she works with CEO’s and Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, Wells Fargo, Spectrum, and Goldman Sachs and college sports teams including the National Champion Villanova Men’s Basketball team and Villanova Football team.
