The mission of Thunderbird Performance is to help athletes develop their mindful awareness so they can have thriving professional careers and naturally step into the role of global change makers when they are ready.
Our vision is to heal and transform the world one athlete at a time.
SOCIAL JUSTICE & RACIAL EQUALITY
TBP is committed to being an engaged partner and ally in the movement for social justice and racial equality, including the efforts of Black Lives Matter. We support the work of the Player’s Coalition (an independent non-profit made up of current and former NFL players) and the NFL’s Inspiring Change program, both of which are focusing reform efforts in the areas of Education & Economic Advancement, Criminal Justice Reforms, and Policing & Community Relations.
We believe Black Lives Matter and that all people are of value and should be treated with respect and dignity. We believe that racism and inequality have existed in the United States for hundreds of years and that we all need to work together to make change a reality. We believe all people should be given equal and fair opportunities in all avenues of life. We believe that together we can make these changes with each of us working to learn more, listen more, heal more, and come together more. TBP will be making conscious efforts in all of its work to work toward these changes.

HIDDEN PEARLS PODCAST
We share the untold stories of the people and communities impacted by social and environmental injustice. Our goal is to raise awareness, increase understanding, promote healing, and ultimately make change.
With George's success in the NFL, we knew we wanted to do something to give back and make a positive impact on the world. This is our effort to do so together as a family.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“My work with Emma has helped me with my flexibility and strength and has helped me avoid those nagging injuries we all face at times. If I hadn't started working with Emma doing yoga and mobility years ago I know I would have dealt with more injuries. And it’s more than just stretching and mobility work. Emma works with my strength and agility coaches so all of my training is integrated and works together to get me to my best.
The ability to focus your mind and calm your body, in the most difficult and stressful of times, has made all the difference for me. After 3 years in the NFL I have learned that 90% of success on the field is mastering the mental aspect of the game. Learning to use my mind and breath in these ways has allowed me to perform in critical situations when it matters most.
This is that piece of training you know you've been missing and will make all the difference. The yoga, meditation, mental prep, and breath work, has all helped me so much. It's total wellness and has really helped."
