Event description


lululemon Philadelphia and Ivy Child International are pleased to invite you for an evening with George Mumford, Mindfulness and Performance Expert to the NBA. Known as Phil Jackson’s “Secret Weapon” to winning eight NBA Championships, George is the Mindfulness Coach to professional sports teams such as the New York Knicks, LA Lakers, and the Chicago Bulls. He is also the author of The Mindful Athlete: Secrets to Pure Performance. A widely respected public speaker and coach, Mumford is sharing his own story and the strategies that have made these athletes into stars. His proven, gentle but groundbreaking mindfulness techniques can transform the performance of anyone with a goal, be they an Olympian, weekend warrior, executive, hacker, or artist.

We believe that who you are outside of the office and off the field is just as important as when you’re on. George will present on the 5 Superpowers of Mindfulness and Performance for the modern man, followed by Q+A and a book signing of The Mindful Athlete. Attendees are encouraged to pre-purchase The Mindful Athlete online and bring it to the event. A limited number of books will be available for sale at the event.
