Launda works with clients who are looking to integrate wholeness of self through a mind, body and spirit interconnection. To be maximally effective, people must recognize the importance of these key elements and understand how they affect our daily interactions with family and work.
As an experienced yoga/meditation teacher of over 10 years, the blending of yoga, meditation and stress reduction techniques has enabled her clients to navigate the stress of work and home with greater awareness and compassion. Launda provides training on stress management, creation of balance, yoga, aging, and social change meditations for leaders, among others. Launda’s goal is to transform lives, not merely pass along information.
Originally from Indiana, Launda joined the Army as a Military Police officer following high school. She finished her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts at Albion College, graduating Suma Cum Laude. Launda earned a Master’s from Naropa University in Transpersonal Psychology. She is an eRYT registered with Yoga Alliance and is currently in the seminary program at the Zen Buddhist Temple of Ann Arbor.
She spends her spare time painting with oils, creating gourmet food, and enjoying wine and chocolate in the farm house she shares with her amazing husband, David, 3 quirky teenagers and a 4th son serving in the Air Force. Included in this menagerie are 2 dogs, 3 cats, a dozen chickens and whatever else shows up to be fed.
The quote that inspires Launda’s passion is: “Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.” ~ Buddha
Launda's Satisfied Clients
Our team’s work sessions were much more productive after Launda’s mindfulness work with us. Thirty minutes at the beginning of each day helped us think more openly and creatively and come up with solutions that otherwise wouldn’t have been possible.
It was my pleasure to have had the opportunity to take a class facilitated by Launda. Launda’s presentation included large group discussions, small break-out sessions as well as individual reflection. Her use of non-traditional training aids e.g. peacock feather drove home an approach in dealing with competing priorities…priceless! I work for the federal government; in such a time as now, Humanergy training provides balance to employees and managers. The information is useful in my professional and personal life – 2 for 1 training, you can’t beat that!!!
Launda was a godsend to our family after my husband received a devastating cancer diagnosis. She helped us feel less alone, helped us see light through a very dark time, and all with practical, easy, and accessible practices. I know of her experience one-on-one and have had the pleasure of seeing her work with small and large groups. She is a tireless advocate for the whole person attaining full health and inner peace.
Our global team members greatly appreciated Launda’s stress management insights and exercises which she shared during our semi-annual meetings, providing us with valuable tools to utilize daily to suppress the stress of our highly demanding and fast paced corporate schedules. She also provided valuable meditation and stress management consultation with my wife in support of her whole health treatment of stage four breast cancer.”
