Stretching Minds and Bodies at uOttawa Law Orientation 2015

David Jewitt spoke to incoming students at uOttawa Faculty of Law (Common Law Section) on Mind Body Awareness Practices for Lawyers: How to Find Balance and Focus in the Practice of Law.   David had the students up and out of their seats for some firsthand experience in mind/body awareness. He credits his yoga and mindfulness practice for his ability to thrive in an incredibly challenging field. We wish this year’s class all the best as they develop their own strategies for handling the stressful world of law practice!
