Mindfulness in a Police Precinct

Richard Biehl ‘18 says his yoga practice has brought tremendous benefits into his life and the precinct where he’s the chief of police. And he sees it as more than just a tool for stress reduction. “It’s about living a good life, a life where we really are being effective in what we’re doing. We can be focused. The world doesn’t disrupt us as much. There’s this sense of: ‘No matter what happens during the day, I can handle it.’ That’s a great gift.”
