He has facilitated world class yoga retreats and teacher trainings and has instructed thousands of yoga asana classes as a master facilitator within Power Living Australia.

Informed by both his yoga and high performance mindset work, Keenan’s “Seven Steps to Lasting Freedom” process has helped thousands of people to transform their limiting beliefs and step into a more powerful and authentic version of themselves.

His mission is to guide his students to live consciously, love intentionally, serve selflessly and - from this place of authenticity - experience a better life connection.
