Jan 30, 2018

"After feeling that fear, I knew I couldn't do this anymore."

Following an outstanding collegiate career at Texas A&M Keith Mitchell was not selected in the 1997 NFL draft. He was although signed by the New Orleans Saints and found early success. Fast forward to 2003, an unfortunate spinal injury left him temporarily paralyzed forcing an early retirement from a sport that his life revolved around.

On this episode of the Evryman Podcast we hear the journey Keith went through following his injury. That path has now lead him to being a Master Certified Yoga instructor where he shares these liberating tools with others. He has also founded the The Light It Up Foundation, extending the reach of mindfulness to communities, schools, and organizations.
