Light It Up Foundation

Lighting up the world one healing breath at a time.

The Light It Up foundation is committed to inspiring and empowering children to cultivate a sense of self, to move through their life and thrive in their communities and the world around them by integrating meditation, mindfulness and movement.

The Light It Up Foundation teaches meditation, mindfulness and movement first and foremost to children as part of its work with schools, communities and organizations.

The foundation also educates first responders, police officers, doctors, veterans, and those who suffer from mental disorders.

By meeting people where they are and introducing them to new possibilities, we help them learn how to care for themselves and their bodies and that opens up a whole new world of possibilities which leads to a more fulfilling way of life.

A Man On A Mission

At the heart of Keith’s philosophy is the belief that our health lies in our own hands. Knowledge, meditation, mindfulness, and movement are powerful tools anyone can use, at any time, to make positive, lifelong changes.

Understanding how the body works and how it changes as we age is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves. Our bodies age, but if we have the knowledge and the desire to live our best lives, we can grow old gracefully.

Getting to know and love ourselves first and nurturing that relationship before seeking relationships with others is the best way to start.

The mindfulness journey is an exciting one and it begins with us.

Fighting Childhood Obesity

The key to fighting childhood obesity is to teach children long-term, healthy habits.

Mindfulness has numerous health benefits for children.

Meditation, yoga, and mindful eating are practices that can help children develop deeper, healthier connections with themselves, food, and the world around them. All of these enable them to achieve success at school, at home, and in life.

Mindful Living Health Expo

In addition to Light It Up, Keith also volunteers with schools and organizations, such as Let’s Effect and the Apex Academy Charter, to influence youth throughout the year.
