Program Description

As long as you have breath, you have an opportunity to transform. Mindfulness is the practice of awareness—a practice that unlocks your power to create a deep, abiding sense of comfort and ease as you align self-knowledge with action.

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

Come away with tools that will enable you to hold new intentions to achieve your highest vision. Deepen and clarify your new knowledge through discussion and a period of questions and answers.

You will discover how to:

  • Rebuild, rejuvenate, and transfigure perceptions of self to discover opportunities to heal your body and mind
  • Encourage the victor mentality over that of the victim to allow the possibilities of love, relationships, life transitions, and healing to take place
  • Consider the entirety of your being—on physical, psychological, and physiological planes—and embrace a more empathetic approach to how you see and experience the world
  • Learn to use breathwork, meditation, and restorative yoga at home to examine your life’s patterns and set new intentions for growth and well-being
  • Evaluate and elevate your life with the capacity to turn your fears and limitations into positive, focused action.

  • 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.
