LA Lawyer Credits Yoga for Tension Relief

A Los Angeles lawyer says his yoga classes have helped him get in shape and combat stress on the job.

John Shaeffer brought in yoga instructors to teach lawyers at his previous law firm, the Wall Street Journal reports. But at his current firm, Spillane Shaeffer Aronoff Bandlow, his penchant for yoga “is kind of a joke,” he admits.

In court, he finds that yoga helps him keep his body relaxed, so he doesn’t clench his fists or jaw. “One of the most difficult things to learn is to clear your mind,” he says.
