Bar Exam Wellness Program FAQs

Will yoga and wellness really help me pass the Bar Exam?

While I cannot guarantee successful pass rates, I can tell you it’s an essential piece of the puzzle! Here’s why and how:
  1. Taking the Bar Exam typically comes with feelings like fear, stress, self-doubt, anxiousness, and overwhelm. And this is completely understandable—after all, the exam determines whether you’ll be able to practice as an attorney! 
  2. When we’re feeling these heavier emotions, we can subconsciously and unintentionally think thoughts that do not serve us, like “I’m not good enough/smart enough/capable enough to pass the Bar Exam.” And because of these negative thoughts, we might not be able to focus or be as productive as we otherwise would be.
  3. Additionally, when we’re feeling these heavier emotions, we can also start to take actions that do not serve our goal of passing the Bar Exam. Ever taken a break from studying to watch Netflix—only to come back to studying 5 hours later? Or how about forcing yourself to study long after you know you’re completely exhausted, so you end up reading each sentence 5 times before it makes sense? (Don’t worry, I’ve definitely done both!) 
  4. To flip from self-doubt to feelings of ease and confidence, you have to BELIEVE you’re going to pass the Bar Exam—and that requires getting to know yourself, your fears, and your subconscious desires and thoughts. It requires doing the internal work/going on an inward journey of self-discovery! 
  5. Yoga and wellness provides the container, the skills, and the practices to help you do that internal work for yourself - anytime you need it while you’re studying or even on the Bar Exam itself! The more you practice yoga and wellness, the better you get to know yourself and your fears. The better you get to know yourself and your fears, the better you’ll be at moving quickly to positive, supportive thoughts leading to productive actions that serve you and your goal of passing the Bar Exam. 
  6. PS - these skills and practices will also serve you long-term in your career as an attorney!

I don’t have time to do yoga and wellness - I need to study to pass the Bar Exam!!

I hate to break it to you, but all that studying won’t help you pass the Bar Exam. 
  • Now, let me set the record straight. Of course I think you need to study to pass the Bar Exam - that’s important! But you’re already doing that work. 
  • And the other kind of work that’s just as important to carry you over the finish line? It’s the internal work, friend. (See Q1 above on working through fears and self-sabotage.)  
  • While you can 100% do this internal work by putting together a routine or program on your own, I’ve created the Bar Exam Wellness Program as a specifically-crafted yoga and wellness program that is designed to help you navigate the internal challenges you will likely encounter while you’re navigating the external challenge of the Bar Exam. When you join the program, all you have to think about is getting to know yourself better rather than how you’re going to build out your own program on your own to do that.  

What’s the difference between doing this program and joining a yoga studio while I’m studying? Can’t I get the same experience that way?

  • You’re totally welcome to join a yoga studio during your Bar study if that will support you! But joining a yoga studio and this program are not the same. Here’s why:
  • When you join a studio, typically you walk in and do the yoga class the teacher has pre-crafted for that day. When we do yoga inside of the program, I check in with how people are doing before we start our yoga practice, and then craft a customized yoga sequence right then and there specifically based on your feedback.
  • A yoga studio (likely) won’t provide any of the following:
  1. Yoga & Wellness Workshops and Journaling Prompts specifically designed to help you navigate the emotional experience of the Bar Exam
  2. Workbooks designed specifically to help you process and understand the emotional and mental side of the Bar Exam - and build a toolbox of wellness tools you can use long after the Bar Exam
  3. Recorded yoga classes you can come back to and practice on your own anytime
  4. Weekly accountability check in classes with a supportive community of Bar Exam takers just like you
  5. Access to an attorney, yoga teacher, and coach who has been in your shoes you can ask questions of and learn from! ;) 

What is the time commitment for the program?

While you can invest as much time as you want, on average:
  • You’ll spend 60-75 minutes per week (on weeks without a workshop or live workshop class)
  • 3-4 hours per week on the busiest weeks (where you watch the workshops or we have live workshop classes)

I’m interested, but I’m not sure I can afford the program.

I understand that preparing for the Bar Exam is expensive. This is all the more reason why it’s important to invest in yourself and in a wellness program tailored to the emotional ups and downs of the Bar Exam journey. This program will help position you to mentally and emotionally perform at your best on Bar Exam days. When you invest in yourself, you invest in your success. (PS - the same tools and practices you learn in the program can support you in your life as a practicing attorney,  providing you with value long after the program is over.)

If you would like to join the program but are concerned finances might hold you back, definitely reach out and ask me about a custom payment plan. I don’t charge more for most payment plans to make this experience as accessible as I can for you. 

I’m interested, but I’m not sure this experience is the right fit for me. 

Let’s get to know each other better, then! Feel free to schedule a free 30-minute consultation here. Or, if you want to get a better sense of what it would be like to work together, you can book a 90-minute Wellness Work Session with me here.

What kind of coaching work do you do? 

What if I fail the Bar Exam? Can I take your program again when I retake the exam?

Absolutely! I want to be of support if you believe this program was beneficial for your Bar Exam experience. I will even offer a discount for repeat program takers. ;) 

Why should I join this program? 

The Bar Exam Wellness Program offers a tailored approach to the unique challenges and pressure points you’ll face during your Bar Exam journey. It also teaches you skills and practices you can implement for yourself anytime, anywhere you need them (and that you can use in your future career as an attorney!). The roadmap is there for you, so all you have to do is focus on doing the work itself!
