    NOTE: THERE IS A 1 MINUTE DELAY AFTER OPENING COMMERCIAL ENDS AND PROGRAM BEGINS.  Keith Mitchell, a former Pro Bowl linebacker with the New Orleans Saints, talks about his journey from NFL star to a popular yoga and meditation teacher.  At a New York yoga festival Mitchell reflected on his transformation.  “That’s so different from where I’ve come from because normally when I’d journey to the East Coast and New York City I would not be bringing peace typically. We would come here to beat up on the New York Giants and New York Jets.”

    While it may seem strange to see a retired NFL veteran leading an outdoor yoga festival, Mitchell’s journey to his current profession as a certified yoga and meditation instructor actually started with a very scary moment on the football field in 2003.  In a Week Two game versus the Buffalo Bills, Mitchell, then playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars, ended up suffering a serious injury when making a tackle.  

    While he tried to briefly return to the field after the injury, Mitchell’s NFL career was done. Now living in Los Angeles, Mitchell gravitated to yoga and meditation more and more over the past decade as he sought a way to make peace with the physical and mental consequences of no longer being a football player.

    “Unless you create a system of healing or working through it, it just gets bigger and bigger and it grows and manifests. The family that person gets involved with or the kids they have, they suffer.”  Join us for Keith's triumphant story.
