Whether you've tried yoga before and want to resume, or want to give it a try for the first time, feel free to stop by in Room LL77.
Classes will run for three weeks at the new time, and then will cease for the rest of the semester.

100% Legal is the "in-house" rock & roll band of the Greenebaum Doll & McDonald law firm. Two band members are Greenebaum litigation attorneys. Mark Grundy (bass and vocals) heads the firm's construction litigation team. Mark Riddle (guitar) serves as chair of Greenebaum's Litigation Practice Group. Gary Strobel (drums and vocals) works for Greenebaum's long time client, Humana.
100% Legal traces its origins to a showcase of home-grown talent for a Greenebaum staff party in 2003. Since that time, members of the band have performed at a variety of corporate and civic events and venues, including Greater Louisville, Inc., United Way, Belknap Fall Festival, the Louisville Marathon, The Galt House, National City Tower Plaza, and a client-sponsored conference in New Orleans. The band was profiled in Business First in 2008.
Although the band members greatly enjoy playing music as a diversion from the daily grind of their legal and corporate work, they don't plan to quit their day jobs.
