Bringing a New Kind of Motion to Your Law Practice
Now more than ever, attorneys are experiencing greater pressure to perform and it’s taking a toll on their well-being, competency, and professionalism, as detailed in the 2017 report of the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being. The Task Force recommends education on the effects of stress and burnout, as well adopting practices such as mindfulness and physical activity.
Mindful Movement incorporates mindfulness, meditation, gentle yoga, and breath practices into a 7-week program conveniently taught at your office during the work day. As a licensed attorney and yoga teacher, Rachel has a unique insight into the demands on attorneys and what practices can alleviate stress and increase well-being.
If you’d like to read some tips on avoiding burnout and compassion fatigue, you can read an article I wrote for the June 2018 issue of Iowa Lawyer magazine here.
The Mindful Movement Program begins with a one-hour presentation on stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue. Earning one hour of CLE credit, attorneys will learn about the physiological effects their work has on their bodies. The presentation incorporates practical tips on how to alleviate the effects of stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue so attorneys can enhance their own well-being while still being passionate advocates for their clients.

After the presentation, Rachel teaches a weekly or bi-weekly 45-minute class at your office. Each class includes mindful movement and breath practices, as well as discussion about meditation and mindfulness. Attorneys and staff return to work feeling refreshed.

Attorneys and staff may also opt-in to weekly emails that build on what is discussed in class, so that participants can continue to practice what they learn. Each email contains practical tips and additional resources.
