The Athlete’s Ascent

Deep practice and high performance

Jayne Storey

As an athlete or sportsperson, you understand the frustration of being at the top of your game only to falter in the heat of competition.


The Athlete’s Ascent shows how you can harness the wisdom of martial and Zen arts to develop the profound connection between mind, body and breathing that leads to the coveted flow state.

Drawing on a lifetime of deep practice, Jayne Storey has streamlined centuries-old disciplines – including Tai Chi and Zazen meditation – into a simple, proven and trusted Performance Practice that helps both amateur and professional athletes ascend to higher levels of enjoyment and performance.


Read this book and develop a daily practice to:

• Strengthen the all-important mind–body connection

• Uncover the link between formal meditation and being ‘in the zone’

• Overcome nerves, anxiety and mental interference in even the most high-pressure competition situations

• Stay in the moment and elevate your movement routines and ball-striking to new heights
