As far as settings go, a lawyer’s office and a yoga studio seem oxymoronic, an unspoken rule forbidding one from entering the space of the other. FH&P’s Kristin Greenough, however, refutes this misconception, instead using her yoga practice to help her on her day-to-day career.

Her Yoga practice has helped her with her law practice, as it creates a balance by keeping her well centred in her life and in her job. Kristin also claims that Kundalini has helped her become more compassionate, which is a key trait in understanding situations in family law.

Kristin shared her tips on mindful breathing and meditation with the staff at FH&P on Thursday. She believes that intentional breathing, along with a few stretches that could be done at one’s desk, play a role in significantly reducing stress levels, while increasing psychological and physiological benefits. Doing so has helped Kristin manage the high emotional stress levels that inevitably come with being a family lawyer.

Kristin brought her yoga expertise to the staff room, sharing her knowledge about Kirtan Kriya- an incredibly beneficial meditation that research has shown has a positive impact on individuals with Alzheimer’s -, along with in-depth research and knowledge about the power of daily breathwork in releasing toxins and stress.

Kristin was drawn to the yoga practice during her years in undergrad at UBC, where Kundalini Yoga classes were offered in her residence. She received her yoga teacher certification in April 2017 from the Kundalini Research Institute, her training occurred at Tandava Yoga studio in Kelowna. She has been teaching there regularly since February of 2018.

Join Kristin in her Kundalini Yoga Class Mondays at 7 pm at Tandava Yoga Kelowna!
