With more than twenty-five years of formal and informal meditation and yoga practice, Lara Plutte now teaches the practice of Mindfulness. It was when Lara became a mom, 13 years ago, that mindfulness meditation became her poignant practice. Lara has steeped herself since in mindfulness meditation to support the deep desire to be present for, accept, even embrace the wild ride of life moment by moment. Lara now combines her experience as a social worker, a teacher, a writer and a mom to support others in the practice of being present. Lara has a Masters in Social Work and the Arts, is a graduate of the InsightLA Mindfulness Facilitator Training Program and a wife and mom to two boys, two cats, one dog and one dragon.
