Sustained is brought to you by Jenny Andrews and Dave Klaus, who started together as public defenders in Oakland, California in 1996. Dave is still there after 21 years as a trial lawyer, mentor, and supervisor, and keeps his fire kindled with his practice of poetry, martial arts, men’s circle work, and practice as a zen priest. Jenny burned out after her first 7 years, and left law for 3 years to teach yoga, exhibit photographs and write for magazines; she found her way back and has been a PD litigating heavy cases in Santa Barbara County and Sonoma County since 2007, while continuing her yoga and writing practices. We teach wellness practices— including yoga, meditation, and gratitude exercises—for public defenders.
