"Keith is a creative and impactful yoga teacher, which I find very impressive.

Using his unique skill set as a coach, Keith has helped me to access emotional, physical and spiritual pathways to better navigate my life’s journey."
"Keith is an extremely skilled life coach and has been a huge inspiration and motivator in my life. He is not one to tell you what to do through advice, rather he is a master at opening your mind to new ways of thinking about your choices. He guides you to discover what you truly need from within yourself and holds you accountable for taking the steps required to accomplish your goals."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Keith Macpherson for a number of years as he has presented at several of our GoodLife Fitness Health and Wellness Leadership Summits across the country. Keith is a professional in every sense of the word and a fantastic person! His presentations are authentic, engaging, inspiring and consistently deliver value that often exceeds the expectations of his audience. He has a special ability to present the topic of mindfulness in a way that equips leaders with practical tools to inspire the best versions of themselves and their workplaces! "
"Keith's fresh, fun, dynamic delivery style and sense of humour kept us totally engaged. We went away with simple tools to help us gain an increased sense of focus, to realize improved awareness on how to be more mindful and to practically utilize this in our daily lives. Most of all - how important “Jumping out of the Jar” is!"
"Keith’s message inspires us all to live our best life. He is truly a voice to connect with - whether singing or speaking. He is a voice of hope for our country and world."
"His (Keith) infectious personality allows him to connect with those both young and old, and through his music, humour and storytelling he has a wonderful ability to encourage people to come together as one to change the world."
"Keith is a force... A true Rock Star. Keith and I first met with music being the connector. No matter the size of the audience, Keith connects. He connects with his song writing, his musicality, his passion and his heart. Keith believes in the power of relationship. And he loves you enough to say what needs to be said. That is more than a life coach... that is a true friend. Personal energy and inspiration combined with overflowing love and leadership. Keith. Is. Amazing"
"Keith’s key note was a unique blend of an important message with inspiring music. Keith’s performance provided a nice close for attendees – filling them with another piece to take away from the conference around their own self-care. "
"Keith is truly one of the most genuine, generous, and divinely connected souls I know. His message of oneness is one he not only speaks to and writes about; it’s one he embraces, embodies, and teaches through his living, shining example every single day."
