Transition was inevitable. A choice had to be made – either continue down the dark path of defeat or cultivate the strength to overcome these hurdles.
The grip of emotional depression was real. Keith had witnessed the physical deterioration of other NFL teammates in his position.
Then he stumbled onto something BIG, and it changed his life forever.
In his darkest hour, Keith discovered conscious breathing, yoga, and meditation, and began a daily practice. These tools not only helped him physically, but also helped him gain a greater sense of self-awareness and fulfillment that went way beyond his passion for football.
After experiencing transformation through this profound, life-changing insight, Keith soon realized how many people were unaware of the practices that were critical to his own healing.
It is that transformation and insight that drives him to share these liberating tools with others.
Keith then began an entirely new journey; to teach others how to enjoy the amazing benefits of mindfulness and to break free from the negative emotions that hold them hostage.
