About Luca

Luca is a classically trained vocalist and cellist with a love for all types of music and performance. He began singing as a member of the Exeter Cathedral and Buckfast Abbey choirs and has a BA Hons in Classical Voice from Leeds Conservatoire. His performance experience spans genres such as Classical, Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, Punk, Jazz, Folk and more! Since graduating in June 2020 Luca has been working as a professional session vocalist and cellist for a variety of recording sessions and performances and regularly performs with bands, groups and ensembles.


Nichi’s retreats have been life changing for me over the past few years. As a Type A, always on the go, never able to stop and switch off, Nichi has taught me the value in slowing down, be it through Yoga or meditation. 
Nichi’s retreats are a chance to do exactly that, switch off from the rest of the world, fully emerging yourself into rest and relaxation, coupled with the Yang of the Yoga flow. 
Missed these retreats so much in lockdown I am delighted they are running again.
