Mental Performance Coach, Consultant, Motivational Speaker, MHK

Ayanna incorporates her unique experience as a successful performing artist with her performance psychology education to coach her clients (such as artists, athletes, and executives) to drastically realize and elevate their peak performance.

Having danced for over 30 years – including training at the Alvin Ailey School in New York City and performing professionally as a ‘triple-threat’ dancer, actor, singer in Toronto (Disney’s The Lion King and the Stratford Shakespearean Festival) – Ayanna has taught hundreds of performers to get the most out of their performance.

Ayanna is extremely passionate about performance: whether on stage herself or when coaching her athletes and performing artists to realize their peak performance.  She is highly committed to providing the tools that will help her clients to reach their fullest potential.

Her unique experience informs her coaching as she has had the privilege of performing as an ensemble member and as a “swing” performer in both Disney’s the Lion King and at the Stratford Shakespearean Festival, North America’s largest classical repertory theatre.

Ayanna now combines NET (Neuro Emotional Technique) with her work as a Mental Performance Coach to help her clients go even deeper, to release internal or subconscious blocks. In this way, they may unveil potential that they did not know already existed so that they may be freed to explore where it might lead!
