Legal Stretch: Bringing Yoga To Vic West Park For A Good Cause

Legal Stretch: Bringing Yoga to Vic West Park for a Good Cause

Helena Mitchell is part of the League and Williams team working as a legal assistant with our lawyers.  At work she brings a can-do attitude, an attention to detail, and a commitment to client satisfaction.  She is a talented legal assistant who cares about her colleagues and our clients.  She is also a talented yoga instructor who, when she’s not supporting our lawyers to reach legal goals, is teaching others to reach fitness goals through yoga.  So as she was passing by Victoria West Park on her way to work one day, as the cherry blossoms were blooming and the Victoria weather was getting pleasant, her mind turned to summer and wandered to how nice it would be to do yoga in the park.

Helena was pondering how close the park was to our office and how yoga has a number of physical and psychological health benefits, when the idea of benefiting a local resource that supports many of our clients, through yoga came to mind.  The firm decided to formally support Helena’s initiative.  Knowing the profound impact an acquired brain injury has on lives, and in particular on many of the lives of the clients of League and Williams, Helena reached out to the Victoria Brain Injury Society with her idea.

The Victoria Brain Injury Society (Twitter: @VicBrainInjury) is an organization that provides support, education and advocacy to people with acquired brain injuries on Vancouver Island.  They provide a range of services and programs to their members and work to raise awareness of acquired brain injuries in British Columbia.  As a registered charity – the Victoria Brain Injury Society depends on donations to provide funding for the programs and services it offers to those it serves.  Consequently, when Helena reached out to the Victoria Brain Injury Society with her idea to lead a series of yoga classes in the park, they welcomed the opportunity to raise awareness about brain injuries in the community and to have funds raised for the programs and services they provide.

League and Williams is proud to announce and support “Yoga in the Park – with Helena”, a series of yoga classes on Tuesday afternoons from noon to 1:00pm starting June 2, 2015 and continuing through August 25, 2015 (weather permitting) in Victoria West Park.  The classes are lead by our legal assistant and trained yoga instructor, Helena Mitchell.  Participation is by donation with the proceeds of the events going to the Victoria Brain Injury Society – just bring your mat and a donation and enjoy!
