Trial Lawyer Arash Homampour’s practice of yoga has a direct and positive impact on his performance in court.
I do yoga five, six times a week and yoga is meditation on the mat. And what yoga does, for especially Type A’s, Type A pluses like me and other trial lawyers, is it allows us access to nothingness. Okay, so you are literally on the mat in a contorted position that hurts, that you are experiencing extraordinarily, a lot of discomfort. And most human beings run from discomfort, especially physical discomfort. And what yoga teaches you is let it go, breathe, relax in that discomfort, and the discomfort will go away. And not only will go away, but you will grow as a human being. That physical transformation that you can have on a mat, is literally the mental transformation you can have in life. And so when you are in court, and the judge’s ruling against you, or you are in front of an expert witness, and he is saying, or she is saying something you didn’t expect to hear, or don’t want to hear, let it go, listen, relax, breathe deep and it will come to you. Because if you are coming from a good space, you will be able to get the truth out of whoever is in front of you.
