Program Description

Imagine if fear were suddenly no longer a factor in your life. What would you do? What would you change, give, be, and accomplish?

Those who create an extraordinary life and achieve their highest vision share one fundamental power: the capacity to turn their fears and limitations into positive, focused action.

Join former NFL-linebacker Keith Mitchell as he shares the transformational practices of yoga, meditation, and positive thinking that he relied on to recover from a paralyzing spinal contusion that abruptly ended his high-profile professional football career.

In this life-changing workshop, you’ll get step-by-step direction for evaluating and elevating your life. You will learn:

  • Meditation and yoga tools to strengthen the courage to do what you want
  • How to break the unconscious fears that are holding you back
  • The four elements of resiliency when dealing with shame
  • Actionable strategies for embracing vulnerability
  • The process of writing your own daring new endings to your challenging stories.

Be prepared to experience the joy of a state of ease, lightness, and inner peace found in embracing your unlimited greatness. At the end of this workshop, you’ll be prepared to step out into the world in a newly empowered way.

  • Faculty Bio
    Keith Mitchell

    Author and wellness and yoga expert

    Keith Mitchell, a former linebacker for the New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, and Jacksonville Jaguars, is now a respected master-certified yoga instructor with more than a decade of experience.

    Keith was at the top of his professional game when he ascended into the 2000 NFL Pro Bowl, but his football career ended abruptly after being confronted with a crippling spinal injury during a game in 2003, resulting in an unwelcome early retirement at the young age of thirty-one.

    Unwilling to surrender to the depression and physical defeat he observed in many NFL peers facing similar traumas, he channeled his energy into the practice of yoga and meditation. He discovered, to his surprise, that these two daily practices not only helped him physically recover from his injury but created a refreshing sense of self-awareness and fulfillment which surpassed his love for football.

    Keith’s passionate philosophy encourages students to become liberated from the inside out‰ beginning with the mind. He is committed to inspiring self-empowerment transformations in the lives of millions through his movement, which now reaches multicultural fans beyond the confines of traditional yoga studios.

    He supports many philanthropic initiatives, include mental health awareness, caring for veterans, injury prevention for athletes, and youth-obesity prevention.
