In need of a relaxing and rejuvenating break from the weekly grind? Interested in clearing your mind while simultaneously supporting a worthy cause? Or maybe you'd like to try yoga for the very first time and feel what all the craze is about... Join Laura M. Abitbol Barrister and Solicitor on June 24, 2018 as we gear up for our second annual charity yoga event.
Laura will be speaking at École secondaire Liberté-Jeunesse on April 4th 2018. She has been asked to shed some light on what it takes to start a successful practice, talk about the challenges and triumphs of being a female lawyer in a predominantly male dominated field, and share in some of the valuable lessons she has learned working for others in the past.
Laura has been asked to join as a panelist for a wonderful and thought provoking play being performed at the Gladstone Theatre on January 13, 2018, engaging the audience in a discussion about end of life care and the lawyer's role.
An avid yogi, Laura has always believed that hard work should be coupled with down time in order to strike a balance in one's life. Supporting and servicing the local community through intiatives such as this has always been her passion and lifelong goal. Mental health is often a topic many struggle to open up about and young professionals aren't the exception to the rule.
