What is Beyond Yoga for Lawyers?
The group yoga classes will be so much more than a typical yoga class that you might be used to. If you’ve ever tried a yoga class before, you’re probably familiar with drop-in classes where you move through poses and sequences.
In Beyond Yoga for Lawyers, we’re going beyond the forms of yoga. This is not another drop-in class.
We will go deep into the body, so you can connect with your body and soul on a much deeper level. We’ll do breathing exercises, meditation, yoga sequences and more, but in ways that’ll be different than what you might have seen or tried.
This yoga space will also be a safe place where lawyers can connect and build a community.
Is the yoga hard that you teach?
No. I teach a relaxing kind of yoga. That’s also why it’s in the evening, so that you can take that relaxation into a wonderful yoga sleep that’s a deep and uninterrupted sleep.
If you’re looking for a hot yoga or strenuous class, then don’t sign up because you’ll be disappointed.
The yoga I share is slow-paced, incorporates meditation techniques and breathing and is focused on increasing the energy movement in your body and not your heart rate.
Who are the group yoga classes for?
Lawyers who want to invest in themselves, are willing to get uncomfortable and try yoga in new ways.
You don’t need to have any previous yoga experience to join. All levels are welcome.
Whether you’ve never done yoga before, only tried it a handful of times or have a dedicated practice already, you’ll love the yoga practice that we’re going to share together.
This yoga practice will be nothing like you’ve ever tried before.
But, most of all, you’ll love being in a community of lawyers practicing yoga and going beyond.
Who are the group yoga classes NOT for?
The yoga classes are not for anyone looking for a workout from their yoga practice (i.e. this is not hot yoga).
What's included in the group yoga classes?
Do I have to be flexible to do the yoga?
In addition to the yoga I teach being slow-paced, it also works for all levels of flexibility. My husband, who also does this kind of yoga, isn’t flexible. But, that doesn’t matter because he meets his body exactly where it is and doesn’t push himself to do more than what feels just right each class.
I’m quite flexible (cause I’ve danced since I was 5 years old), but I don’t push myself to go as far as I can in poses because that’s not the point of the yoga I teach. Also, I’m not perfect, my balance is different every class and after having a baby, I’m reconnecting with my body in a new way.
I encourage you not let the fact that you think you’re not flexible, be the reason you don’t join and try out this yoga. The best thing that could happen is that it changes your life!
Do I have to be practicing law to join the yoga classes?
All lawyers are welcome – whether you’ve left the law to start your own business or are non-practicing. As lawyers we can connect and relate with each other in a way non-lawyers cannot, so come join a group that gets it. No explanations needed.
What equipment is needed for the yoga classes?
– 1 yoga mat (required)
– 1 yoga strap (or belt from a robe/jacket or long belt)
– 2 or more yoga blocks to use for balance and to sit on (or textbooks, binders and blankets can work)
– a wall close by
– a blanket
– room-temperature water (not cold)
– eye masks for shavasana
What if I have to miss a yoga class?
I’ve got you covered and you won’t need to worry.
After every group yoga class, I’ll be sending out a recording of the class, you won’t feel like you missed anything. You’ll be all set for the next week’s class.
✨Sending out the Zoom recording after class is a NEW feature for 2023 and not something I’ve done before.✨
Do you have a free class online that I could try to see if I like it?
But, first let me tell you that it’s a 75 minute yoga class that I taught as a webinar. So, it’s not as interactive as my classes normally are and the quality isn’t the best, but it’ll definitely give you an idea of the kind of yoga I teach.
If I've done the yoga program, can I join again?
These group yoga classes are meant to be a weekly, life-long practice for you.
This relaxing yoga practice I share with you is not a one-and-done. It’s meant to be practiced consistently — with me, that’s weekly because as lawyers, I get it we’re busy and have lots of demands and commitments on us. But, I believe, we can all find time once a week for this practice. And, it’s by Zoom, so you don’t even have to drive, park, etc.
