Today, we want to highlight one of our New customers, Jen The Yoga Lawyer. This past year or so have been challenging, uneasy and stressful for a lot of us. Between work life and home life, there hasn’t been much time to focus on yourself. This is where Jen comes in. Jen is a Yogi and a Lawyer. She understands the challenges we all face and invites others to walk with her on a journey of transformation by embracing self-care practices with nature’s greatest resource.
“Ten years ago when I was in the midst of my yoga teacher training, ironically, I often found it hard to be authentic. When I was with my yoga friends, I reluctantly admitted that I was an attorney, and when I was with my lawyer colleagues, I hid how dedicated I was to yoga, often brushing it off as just exercise.
Then a few years later, while I was going through a major life change I found that once I stopped hiding who I really am I became more empowered and engaged, a better mom, friend, and partner, and ultimately, more successful.
Since then, I’ve been practicing law and yoga, and integrating the two to become a better lawyer and now, to re-define what it means to be a lawyer in today’s world.”
Jen focus’ on three main areas:
1. Building a professional community of like-mind professionals who understand that they themselves need to be healthy and well if they are to serve others;
2. Training lawyers and leaders he action steps necessary to become conscious leaders in these trying times;
3. Inviting others to walk with me on a journey of transformation by embracing self-care practices with nature’s greatest resources.
Welcome to a community of smart courageous people who are ready to change themselves to change the world.

About this Retreat
To lead with integrity, you first must be in harmony with yourself. This is the allusive key to living a life filled with meaning and joy and vitality. We all come into this life with a very unique and special purpose, something that we are passionate about and that is meant to fill our days with meaning and allow us to be of service to others. Unfortunately, over time we lose our purpose or forget it, and our lives instead become filled with despair and dis-ease, our work feels meaningless, and the joy of living is lost.
As lawyers and leaders, we possess a unique position where how we choose to lead influences not only ourselves, but the larger world that we co-create. As the last year has shown, the time is now for us to step up and into the seat of the conscious leaders that we were meant to be. To do that, we must first connect with what truly makes us feel whole.
So come, say yes, and join us on this unique Retreat to re-connect with your own inner light and purpose, experience safe, service-oriented travel, and engage in wellness practices so that you can return home renewed and inspired. If something inside of you keeps insisting that you were meant to do more or if you feel the call within, this Retreat is for you!
A unique inspirational retreat combining leadership development and wellness with philanthropic travel, featuring events with the UN Environment Programme on sustainability and conservation, international law topics, Safari, sailing in the Indian Ocean off the beautiful Swahili Coast, and yoga, meditation, and leadership practicums on the exotic beaches of the UNESCO world heritage island, Lamu.
CLE credit anticipated for NY, NJ & PA, and in reciprocity with other states.
You do not have to be a lawyer to attend this Retreat but lawyers will obtain CLE credit for our lecture series, which is intended to be of interest to everyone. All you need is an open heart and a desire to lead, where ever you are on your journey!
