Are you ready to embrace Vedic Wisdom to create more sacred, sumptuous living? 

Perhaps you’ve had a Vedic Astrology reading that left you with more questions than answers. 

Maybe you’ve formally studied Ayurveda, but still don’t feel confident in your knowledge, or how to really live it, or even to share it, to fit our modern, western world.

Or you’re brand new to meditation, mindfulness, mantra, Ayurveda, or Vedic Astrology (welcome!) and are looking for a way to get started that’s simple and practical.

I had many of the same questions when I first began studying and practicing Ayurveda 20+ years ago. An experience of heartbreak and so much loss, feeling isolated, alienated, just didn’t know where I belong, if I belong.

All of this led me to meditation, where I found a beautiful tool to center and to find a loving home in my heart. From meditation, I was led to Yoga, Yoga philosophy, and the stories of the deities, then Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology.

And now I live in a place I call Grace, for who knew life could be this sacred, this sumptuous, this radiant!

    There are few people to whom I would entrust my soul. Laura Plumb is certainly one of them. Laura’s knowledge and capacity to convey meaning through this ancient science is obvious. A recent session with her offered new light to guide me on my earthly pilgrimage.

    I love your Divine Yoga series. I love the focus on the mythology! I’m always looking for a class where I can learn more than just the poses and you are great at explaining and incorporating your teachings into the class! I learned about some of this during my yoga training, but the way you explain it is easier to understand. Very nice flows and I love your smile and natural disposition! Thank you Laura.


    Laura is wonderful! She is incredibly knowledgeable, insightful, honest, adaptable, approachable, caring, kind and empathic. She has an amazing gift in the ability to communicate/ translate information to ALL. I have had two readings with Laura and plan to check back regularly. Feeling very lucky to have found her. I could not recommend Laura more highly.
