How a Busy Lawyer Can Reduce Stress Through Yoga

Aman Costigan is a lawyer (and Yoga Instructor) who helps other lawyers proactively minimize stress, connect with their bodies, and enable them to go through life and their practice with grace. 

Here is a sneak peek into our conversation and questions I asked Aman.

Aman’s Law Practice

  • What area of law do you practice in?
  • Was the stress you felt in your law practice get you started in yoga or were you doing it before?

How Yoga Helped Aman In Her Practice

  • How do you think the yoga practice helped you in your practice as a lawyer? It helped her listen to her body and feel more connected, and get out of survival mode. She was less reactive, calmer, and had more patience. 
  • How did you handle your emotions productively; how did you develop the awareness to know you were in the reactive mode?

Tips For Solo Law Practice Lawyers

  • What tips have you developed to help others develop awareness of their emotions? Take time (even if it’s in the shower) to get some mindfulness before you start the day. Start the day easy. Close your eyes and breath. Notice what is going on in your body. Taking time for yourself (even if it’s walking around the block for 5 minutes) will help clear your mind and be more aware of your emotions, let go of the day, release those stressful emotions. 
  • Having a law practice is stressful, some areas of law are more stressful than others. When you’re working with a client and feel the stress and anxiety of the case, are there ways you’ve found through your work doing yoga, to deal with the stress on both sides more effectively? 

Aman’s Growth Of Her Yoga Practice

  • How did you go from “I’m a busy Lawyer who does yoga” to “I’m going to start teaching yoga to lawyers”?
  • How did you work out the logistics to teach yoga during a pandemic?
  • Tell us about your Mastermind Lawyer Entrepreneur Group and how it led to the journey to where you are now.
  • Tell us how your classes work?
  • Is there an opportunity for people in your class to get to know one another outside of the class?
  • How often do you offer classes and how long are the classes?
  • From a yoga point of view… is the yoga for lawyers different from conventional yoga?
