A past of being defined as a sports label

Being an NFL Star Athlete for 8 years of my life, was an unforgettable experience...

I entered into the NFL as a young free agent linebacker sporting jersey #59 for various high profile teams such as the New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, and Jacksonville Jaguars.

On the field, I was a beast at making record-setting defensive tackles and quarterback sacks which brought me great recognition and helped me establish public notoriety.

At the top of my professional game, I ascended into the 2000 Pro Bowl despite my disappointment of being an undrafted All Pro Athlete from my dream college Texas A&M.

Without warning, my football career suddenly ended after suffering from a paralyzing spinal contusion which initially left me concerned about how to transition into a future of unknown possibilities that didn’t seem to fit into my label of being a professional athlete.

Can you imagine approaching retirement from a career you truly love at the young age of 31?  

Ironically, most people make decisions like this much later in life, however, overnight my life suddenly changed.  My identify as a successful athlete, which had been nurtured over the coarse of decades since childhood in addition to years of sweat and hard work, was stripped away within seconds after one paralyzing hit.

Now what would I do with my life?  What would my identity be? This was the life question I had to contemplate over and over in my head until one day I opened myself up to trying something new and unconventional – YOGA AND MEDITATION.

A Life-Changing Transition

My life took a dramatic turn for the best! As a top NFL linebacker, performing on stage was easy.  Once wearing my familiar football jersey #59 label made me feel powerful, successful and respected, but now wearing a fresh new outlook on life gives me LIBERATION, JOY, AND INSPIRATION.

Another plan

I dreamed that my career in sports would last as long as I wanted to play, but unfortunately this choice was not mine to make. There was a bigger master-plan for my life which I had not yet realized.

Trauma

Unwilling to surrender to the plague of emotional depression and physical defeat I often observed among many NFL peers facing similar traumas, I began channeling my energy into the practice of YOGA AND MEDITATION for healing.

Great discovery

By surprise, I discovered these two daily practices not only helped me recover from injury, but also created a sense of liberation, self-awareness,  and fulfillment surpassing my love for football.

 

The Journey is the Destination...

My journey in sports led me to a football stage of fame, while the trauma of being paralyzed at a young age almost sent me to rock bottom. Unexpectedly, the ultimate master plan was for me to discover my destiny.

 

"Embrace tension because through the sensation our body speaks"

Like you, I have experienced fear, pain, great setbacks, disappointments, failures, and adversities. Life’s journey promises us all many unexpected surprises - both good and bad, however, regardless of all life’s events, we have control on how we manage our decisions.  When this happens, we don’t have to remain in a state of fear, pain, anxiety, or depression.  

Experiencing the trauma of being paralyzed during my football career at a young age almost felt like I had reached my  rock bottom.  Just as I was physically paralyzed  from a game injury, I discovered an even greater identity challenge to overcome, my mental paralysis which was actually rooted in fear.

Facing one of my greatest emotional fears, I believe  is symbolic of experiences  that many of my clients and fans  experience which may be equally just as paralyzing as a physical injury and sometimes even more so. But my testimony is proof enough that fear can be defeated in order to achieve freedom and healing.

Through my teachings, I demonstrate how the practice of yoga, can help us all embrace our true identity by leading us to a center of enlightenment and self-awareness.  By implementing a daily yoga practice accompanied with meditation, we are then able to confront our emotional doubts, breathe life and positive energy into our thoughts, and simultaneously gain physical strength to be our very best at all times. 

This is the key to unlocking the mind, understanding self, living a life of purpose, and also developing authentic relationships with others.

Keith’s profound life-changing transformation from practicing daily yoga & meditation disciplines have helped him understand and find a destination leading to freedom and liberation. 

Keith wants to teach you how!

The practice of the following mindful disciplines are all critical in my transformation journey. As I adopted each of these mindful practices, I developed a new identity of authenticity which helped me find acceptance of the “treasure” within myself which had been hiding behind the sports label I had carried my whole life. 

You too can discover your treasure!  I can guide you through your journey with the following principles:

          Union of              Mind + Body + Spirit 

Pranayama (Breathing)

Asana (Postures)

Getting the Most out of your Body

Body & Muscle Awareness

Low & High Impact Balance Training

Restoring & Rehabilitating

Detoxification

Lifestyle Changes | Physical Therapy

 

Why are Meditation & Yoga so Powerful?

Through both practices, it is possible for one to bring the internal self to form and make it tangible.  Like most men, I realize how common it is to wear a disguise of masculine armor which mask our hidden hole containing insecurities, emotions, and vulnerabilities leaving our spirit feeling empty, detached, and unnurtured.

The practice of yoga and meditation allow these hidden holes to be filled with acceptance and love.

Advocacy for 3 High Impact Causes

 Injury Prevention   for Athletes

The key to injury prevention is introducing athletes to yoga BEFORE they are seriously injured, minimizing the risk of  physical damage to their bodies.   Often overlooked, yoga and meditation offer pro-active solutions for teaching athletes to recharge, nurture and restore their bodies back to 100%.

        Caring for         Military Veterans

A growing number of veterans deployed abroad yet struggle with serious mental health challenges. Mindful daily practices may help veterans lead more successful post-deployment lives, helping them transition back and reconnect with themselves, friends, and families 

          Combating          Youth Obesity

Combating the obesity crisis among America's youth presents  a great opportunity to expose them early. Yoga with children offers many great possibilities to exchange wisdom, influence healthy habits, share good times, and lay the foundation for a lifelong practice that can be passed on to future generations.
