Born and raised in Ottawa, Lukas moved west a few years back in pursuit of better weather. An avid cyclist, he started practicing Modo Yoga more regularly soon after the North Van studio opened in 2017. He was recovering from a serious back injury at the time, and found that a consistent yoga practice helped him strengthen and stretch the weak and tight spots that had contributed to his injury in the first place. Now he uses yoga to help keep him limber and balance other activities like cycling and strength training. When he’s not sweating it out in class or helping out on the front desk, you can find Lukas keeping folks groomed at Victory Barber & Brand in Gastown.
