This methodology is utilized by the military, special forces, the performing arts, professional athletes, including NASCAR’s Richard Petty Motorsports Team.

His approach offers specific tools on how people can redirect negative stress into positive constructive energy. Redirecting the trauma of stress was at the heart of the training Dr. Lyles used these techniques to do for hundreds of corporate and public safety workers in and around Ground Zero in New York following the 911 tragedy, and in the Tsunami Rescue and Recovery effort.

Major corporations have also benefited from this training methodology such as Gulfstream, Chrysler Group, GM, Banana Republic, Macy’s, Pfizer, Universal Studios, Tommy Hilfiger, and Dior to name a few.
