Welcome to New Zealand’s Premier Stress Mitigation, Mindset and Mental preparedness 1 and 2 Day Workshops.
In this workshop you will master practical skills relating to the control of your body and mind’s response to stress and pressure situations. You will learn to gain better control of your mind and ability to regulate stress and pressure in real time so you can respond to situations, thoughts, emotions and life with more clarity and precision.
These workshops are tailored to suit the team and include options for both 1 and 2 day workshops.
YOU WILL LEARN
You will learn the same mind/body training that we implement with elite level athletes to ensure they can control the mental aspects of performance. However, this workshop is for anybody who is looking to optimise their health and performance whether you’re an athlete, professional a mum or a dad.
You will learn how to control key body systems in dynamic settings to improve endurance, focus, creativity, strength and power.
The workshop is a unique combination of theory-based knowledge, skill acquisition and practical applications that will teach you:
· How to better control your energy output by fluidly transitioning between sympathetic and parasympathetic states (energised vs relaxed). This will have a profound effect on your ability to recover faster, clear your mind and be present, sleep better and remain calm and in control in stressful situations, while having better mental focus throughout the day.
· The role of stress in shaping your response to challenging situations and how to control its effects on the body and mind. You will learn the underlying mechanisms so that you can start to leverage stress to your advantage.
· Cold water immersion – contrast therapy, beach training and pool session to reinforce learning in dynamic practical settings
· Science based tools and protocols to rebalance your nervous system and train your mind stop latching to the past and future.
· Establishing a protocol and framework for one of the most important thing you have, your mindset. You will work to unravel some of your subconscious patterns of behaviour that are detrimental to your health, personal growth and performance. The biggest change often comes with awareness alone. This is the first step to rewiring the way you think, act and deal with life’s stressors.
· How to perform during crucial moments by remaining task focused and avoiding overthinking.
· How to include controlling your breathing and nervous systems into regular training. You will learn how to use your breathing to illicit a calm state and how to use your breathing system to enhance health and performance.
· Throughout the 2 days you will find yourself transitioning between theory session, skill acquisition sessions and practical application that challenge you both physically and mentally. By incorporating these 3 facets of learning we start to make substantial and sustainable change.

“We got a huge amount out of the Calm Under Pressure workshop from Integrated Training. The corporate law work environment can be pretty high pressure at times, and stress is a natural part of the job. Equally, the wellbeing of our team is really important to us. We are really keen to give our team tools to help them manage their response to pressure, so that they can respond positively to it and feel good about stretching themselves to take on new challenges.
The Calm Under Pressure workshop delivered on that goal. It was a great experience for the team – you don’t often get a bunch of corporate lawyers lying on the floor focusing on their breathing! Finishing off with the ice-bath challenge gave a real tangible example and lots of bragging rights back in the office.”
As a country lead for a growing business, I am constantly looking for new ways to host our key clients. I came across The Calm Under Pressure workshop through instagram as Dave works with a range of high profile athletes. After speaking with Dave, I was happy to hear he can tailor the course for corporate clients.
After spending the day with Dave, I cannot speak highly enough of the course. It was such a great way to learn new techniques on how to handle stress mitigation and reset your mindset – something becoming more and more important especially in the current climate.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone, and the feedback from the group was that it was one of the most valuable things they have ever done for themselves.
The calm under pressure course was awesome! My team work constantly in high pressure situations and the emphasis on recovery and breathing was a game changer.
We were able to implement the tools learnt straight away into our daily training routine. Big thanks to Dave and his team!
Whether it’s your personal life or different work situations, for me in a sporting sense; we face stressful situations or situations where we’re out of our comfort zone all the time. If you can sort of bring yourself back into a state where you’re operating more freely and thinking clearly you’re going to make better decisions and enjoy the journey more as well.
The toughest challenge for me was doing the ice bath. Done quite a lot of ice baths with sailing and whatnot, but never really felt that comfortable in it. But this weekend I just embraced it.
I came to the Calm Under Pressure Workshop to push myself and try and go to new levels. I really wanted to learn from Woody around some of the breathwork stuff and how to use that to your advantage or make sure you’re using it’s full capability. After the two days, I feel absolutely stoked, like I really learnt a lot and have made some good gains.
It was about pushing myself personally, I think on top of that doing it with all of [the crew] from Team New Zealand, the Sail GP team and from live ocean racing, watching not only my own growth but seeing everyone else grow as well.
Dave delivered a workshop for our players as part of their personal development. The workshop was innovative and dynamic, focussing on optimising not only health and wellbeing but performance on and off the field.
Dave has a great way of delivering leading edge evidenced based tools with practical execution. The players enjoyed the opportunity
to stretch their body and mind, finding it fun and enjoyable too. Providing the players with the knowledge, tools and awareness of what they can control when under pressure, using their body and mind is imperative for overall Hauora. We will be inviting Dave down South again for sure.
