Koorosh Rassekh

Formerly a competitive athlete at the national and international level, Koorosh deeply understands the connection between mind and body. He learned that the key factor to attain peak performance is a person’s state of mind.

Koorosh has undergone extensive training in mindfulness and meditation practices, including yoga, multiple breathwork modalities, mindfulness, and meditation techniques. He integrates mindfulness into his therapy and coaching work, where he works with people to help them become curious about their own experiences and unlock possibilities.  

Having confronted addiction in his own life, Koorosh founded Evo with the vision to break the stigma around mental health and create a world of healthier people, families, and communities.
