Lawyers face particular stressors that most of us don’t experience, but yoga can be a great way for them to find clarity and focus in a hectic and demanding profession.
Aman Costigan joins us on this episode to share how she tailors practices for this group of people and why niching is important.
Aman is the founder and yoga teacher at Beyond Yoga for Lawyers as well as a partner at the law firm of Shores Jardine LLP. She shares yoga and mindfulness practices to promote relaxation, improve focus and be more present in daily life. The tools and techniques she teaches give lawyers a toolkit of coping mechanisms and help lawyers be less angry, less reactive and better listeners.
