The first thing that gets lost in “team” sports is the individual. The first thing that fades to 

the background is YOU.


Contrary to popular opinion, the most selfish thing you can do as a teammate is neglect your own well being. When you forget to take care of you (or worse, don't know how) you shift that responsibility to your coaches and your teammates. 

Becoming the Player Coach starts with first taking ownership of your journey so that you can stop waiting for others to hold you up and you can start learning how to stand on your own. That's the difference between a pretty good player and a player who is un-fuck-with-able. 

And you're just the type of player we love around here. Ambitious. Driven. Curious.

Actually, do you have a sec?

THat's where I slide in, all Olivia pope with a master plan and a step-by-step transformation.   

My name is Annette Corbin and I used to be exactly where you are now. 

It's remarkable I even made it to the pros, let alone Purdue University. I got cut from my first club team, had no D1 offers, and no plan. I got recruited to play college soccer off of one game. one.

Believe it or not, I left Purdue an All-American (one of the highest honors you can receive as a player and the first ever in school history). 

But how it ended had little to do with how it started.​

i can help because i've been there

My Freshman year was a story about a season that came too easy

About a player who fell back on her ego and lost sight of the hard work that got her there. 

Sophomore year. New recruits. Better players. Team drama. Coaches wanting to try something new. I found myself on the bench. Again.

I went home that Summer and vowed to never let it happen again. I found a trainer named Dan. He was gritty – a little angry. He was perfect. 

It was rock IV...

... fighting for my life, training to be the absolute best I could be. And it worked. 

I came back Junior year unrecognizable. 

Senior year I built on that. *Insert All-Big Ten, All-Regional, All-American*

In 2005 I rode that momentum into a professional career, playing in Sweden (one of the best leagues in the world). After an incredible first season, my face was on a billboard and my picture on the front page of the sports section. 

No pressure right ? 

“Everything you do, if not in a relaxed state will be done at a lesser level than you are proficient. 

Under the pressure, I cracked.

I struggled to do the simplest things in my sport, like pass a ball or score on an empty net...

  • I didn’t know I could take a deep breath and calm my nervous system. 
  • I didn’t know that I could create a regular recovery routine to keep me from getting injured over and over again. 
  • I didn’t know what books to read or what people to listen to that might shift my perspective and bring my game back. 
  • I didn’t have a plan, or a program for that matter, that took care of me. 



 a master's degree from Northwestern later and a 500 hr yoga teaching certification under my belt, I started my business, teaching yoga to athletes. And then the Pandemic hit. Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka. Mental health. Michael Phelps. I remembered my time in Sweden. 

Before I knew it, the Athlete Practice grew into lectures, team workshops, courses and programs, meditations, anxiety and performance coaching. It became a platform to help athletes handle, not just the physical but the mental stress of, having to play under pressure. It was incredible.

Which brings me back to you!

I believe there are no "team sports" and the real transformation happens when you learn how to take care of you.


I believe the real benefit of yoga is not stretching, but peace and living a life of discipline, joy, and purpose.


I don't believe in balance, but alignment. It's 80/20 over here, not 50/50. 


around here, we do things a little bit differently than most

before we go any further, you should probably know that...

"It's so hard to put into words what this is, because there's nothing like this - there are no programs like this.

It's like a complete transformation of who you are. Like the quality of everything. Your quality of life. Your relationships. The quality of your playing. Your talent. It just like all increases."

"I would have never had the season I did without dialing in on everything that Annette taught me."

After completing [AP Foundations] not only did I feel prepared for the pitch, but I felt better prepared to take on everyday life.

To empower you (the underdog) to show up BIG for your life and to step into the arena of hard things with a little bit of grace, a whole lot of grit, and an abundance of unapologetic joy.

I am not teaching you anything. I just help you to explore yourself.

To me, the real mentor-student relationship is one in which we grow together and we build something unique that only you and I can. It's personal, and by extension, powerful.
