Maximize Your Longevity With the Amazing Power of Yoga

In the course of my work as a trial consultant, I spend a fair amount of time in law offices working with litigators - lawyers who try cases in the courtroom. I had scheduled a work session with an attorney for 10:30 a.m., figuring we'd only need a couple of hours, and we'd be done before lunch. Imagine my surprise when I received a call from the attorney - a woman in her late 60's - requesting that we move the meeting to 10:00 a.m., so that she could make it to the yoga class her law firm held in their offices at noon!My first thought was "What an enlightened law firm!"
