• Every single person can benefit from meditating.

    I make it simple and non-intimidating.

     

    Reduce Stress

    and Anxiety

     

    Improve Focus

    and Performance

     

    Be Present and

    Enjoy Life!

     

  • Are You Overwhelmed? Anxious?

    Confused?

     

    Life is stressful, particularly lately, and stress can take a toll. Maybe you've experienced some of these symptoms:

     

    ● An anxious feeling in your chest.

    ● You don't sleep through the night.

    ● You snap at your family or overreact.

    ● Your emotions feel out of control.

    ● You can't seem to slow down and enjoy.

    ● Life is overwhelming.

     

    In all of the rushing around, we’re losing the ability to stop, listen to ourselves, and enjoy the moment.


    Life is too short to live like this.

     

    I can help you!

  • It's Time to Start Meditating

     

    Mindfulness meditation is a research-proven way to improve brain function and mental health.

    By developing the ability to be present, you can enjoy the ups of life, and trust in your resiliency during the downs.

    Manage Stress

    and Anxiety

    Develop your mind-body connection so you can identify the way stress effects you personally, and then learn to manage your reaction to it, particularly through your emotions. Learn how to relax the body to relax the nervous system and mind.

    Improve Focus

    and Productivity

    Stop trying to multi-task; learn to do one thing at a time with focus and presence. Complete tasks faster and with less mistakes this way - so you don't have to redo them! Get your whole team on board to make projects flow smoother and more thoughtfully.

    Strengthen

    Relationships

    Develop greater self-awareness and the ability to be present and truly listen. That will help you strengthen important relationships, with every single person in your life. It really is a wonderful shift when it happens, and suddenly annoyances shift into having compassion!

     

     

  • Meet Lara, Your Meditation Coach

    If you are like most busy professionals, you would love to find a way to be more "calm" than "storm."

    In order to do that, you need real-world techniques that you can implement into your busy life. The problem is, you can't figure out where to start on your own, you get frustrated and quit, or don't even start in the first place.

     

    Don't give up! I believe that everyone can benefit from implementing mindful meditation practices into their lives. I know because I've been there.

     

    As an anxious, stressed-out, always-in-a-rush lawyer, learning how to meditate changed my life.

     

    It brought me a sense of inner peace, much more patience, the ability to accept what cannot be changed, and sound sleep every night. Watching these changes take place within me, I decided I had to share this incredibly powerful practice with others.

     

    My teachings are based on mindfulness techniques – learning how to be more present – which have been proven to dampen our body's stress response and improve the functioning of our brain.

     

    Anyone can learn these practices and get the benefits from them. I teach many types of meditation techniques to provide the chance for every person to find one that fits their lifestyle and personality. I completely understand that you're only going to practice a technique regularly if you enjoy it and it works for you! So we work together until you've found that and then found your own rhythm.

     

    The tools I teach derive from the latest scientific understandings of how our brains and bodies function together. I have completed over 2000 hours of training in mindfulness meditation practices, and as a lifelong learner, I continue to study mindfulness, neuroscience, and psychology so I can improve my practice and help my students improve theirs.

     

    Meditating is simple, yet not easy, but if you can develop a regular practice, the benefits are endless.

     

    Let me help you with this.

  • Here is How Meditation Has Helped Some of My Clients

    "Lara is such an amazing partner in wellness and inclusivity. Her meditation sessions show our employees just how easy it is to take some time for self-care every day and that meditation doesn’t have to be strict or traditional. Her incorporation of how the mind and body work and the many benefits of a mindful practice were interesting and motivating to keep going past the classroom."

     

    - Christyl Abraham, Manager at Holt Renfrew

    “Thanks for introducing us to so many easy and mindful ways to meditate. Your classes have really helped me incorporate meditation into my day-to-day activities more easily. I think the biggest misperception about meditation is that you need to make time for it and find a quiet room to do it in, etc. Lara’s sessions are really very eye-opening in helping clear those misperceptions. For me personally, it has made all the difference.”

     

    - Akshata Kalyanpur, Senior Manager at Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan

    "Very much enjoy these sessions. There was one occasion when I felt overwhelmed by a swirling cloud of competing priorities and urgent to-do items. I took 15 minutes to attend a meditation and returned to my desk with a settled mind, able to calmly and dispassionately look at everything on my list and prioritize sensibly. It made a huge difference in my ability to do my job that day.

     

    - Anonymous Corporate Attendee

    “As a former practicing lawyer, Lara understands the demands of legal practice and brings her personal experience and unique perspective to the table. She tailors her programming to the particular audience, explains the process and benefits of meditation and frames her content in scientific research findings. Lara has a gentle and patient manner, and her soothing voice has a calming effect that is sure to relax anyone who participates in one of her guided meditations. After Lara’s introductory sessions with our staff and lawyers, the feedback was so positive that we asked Lara to return on a weekly basis.”

     

    - Lisa Cunningham, Lawyer and Director of Professional Development at Wildeboer Dellelce LLP

    I recently completed an online meditation and mindfulness series with Lara of 'Listen Lightly'. I couldn't be more pleased with the knowledge, warmth and professionalism of Lara's clear inspirational teaching! Learning how to benefit from the various meditation methods Lara taught has provided a great shift in my life helping me to deal with daily challenges in a much more positive and calming way. I highly recommend this series to anyone who is looking for an introduction to meditation or to deepen an existing practice. Forever Grateful.

     

    - Debra Kennedy-Johnson, Real Life Changes participant

    "Lara's Real Life Changes series was amazing. I've been struggling to make meditation a part of my daily life and this course helped me realize that there are different ways to practice, even when you are busy. I looked forward to Lara's support and guided meditations each week!"
