Over the last 12 years Luke has devoted over 1000 hours of study under various prolific yoga professionals including John Friend, Michael Fukumara, Gerson Frau, Dharma Mittra and Gabriel Halpern. As a result of a serious low back injury which began in 2012, Luke's interest in therapeutic modalities of movement and breath grew from curiosity to inspiration as he recognized the power to heal was within. This led to studies with Doug Keller, Tias Little and Leonard Orr. Luke is a student of the Sanbo lineage of Zen teachings and works directly with his mentor Henry Shukman. blending traditional yoga, Zen teachings and therapeutic methods, Luke's classes focus on engagement with the present moment through pranayama, asana and meditation; with the aim of enhancing introspection, presence, clarity and ultimately offer stillness, or as Luke likes to describe it, "sans souci".
