Your yoga and meditation workshop at Himalayan Institute was fun, easy, and relaxing; and at the same time full of valuable and essential information that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I don’t know how you do it!

As always, Luke’s insight and teaching provided the perfect blend of humor, science and spirituality to create a relaxing, uplifting weekend while still allowing me to deepen my practice.

Luke’s weekend retreat was a joyous gift from start to finish. The yoga instruction was excellent, of course, but that was no surprise to me, after more than a year of daily practice with Luke’s rich library of online classes on Yoga International. I loved the meditation instruction and Luke’s close attention to the ways each of us might enhance or deepen his or her practice, whether by figuring out a better way to sit or by learning a new set of ancient rituals. And I especially appreciated Luke’s gracious, friendly presence and his generosity of spirit, which drew our whole group into a happy and comfortable communion, whether over meals, by the fire pit at night, or on a wonderful hike through the woods. If you’re lucky enough to have the opportunity to participate in one of Luke’s retreats, take it!

I am astounded by the tremendously positive effects I have been receiving from this past weekend. I have been doing the breathing exercises at home and for the first time in many years, I am able to sleep the entire night without waking up. I have a sense of peacefulness and a distinct lack of anxiety that in the past lurked around every corner of my mind. I am feeling a profound ok-ness which is starting to feel like the new state of being.

Luke, What a wonderful respite for myself and, at the same time, a wonderful way to re-ignite my own practice. Your humble, open-hearted, and often humorous style of sharing your knowledge and skills, made for a very accessible, and content-packed workshop that I cannot say enough about. What a great weekend retreat to recharge one’s own practice and infuse it with new focus and form. My yoga practice over the decades has ebbed and flowed in many, many ways; through the foundation of Breath, it can find new power and passion.

All in all, I am a much calmer, happier, and clearer human being and I am so grateful to you for these tools to facilitate my own healing process as well as for my clients/patients. It has been challenging at times and it has taken a lot of commitment on my part, but it has been so rewarding! I feel that I still have a long way to go but I look forward to experiencing the effects and seeing the changes in my life.

Thank you, Luke, for being such a wonderful presence in our lives and for guiding me through this journey to making me the best version of myself more of the time until hopefully all of the time.

I look forward to when our paths cross again.
