"Luz was amazing, inspiring and pushed me to do new things and try new foods that I think I would have turned my nose up. Which is fantastic because I love food if it's good and I want to be able to try anything and base it on its own merits rather than my preconceived notions of what is and isn't. Her exuberance and her passion for teaching yoga that she relentlessly displayed day after day has certainly taken affect on my daily actions and has inspired life changing views on my food and health habits." -Brandon J.
"Luz and Jen worked wonderfully as a team, and balanced each other well! Her classes added hugely to the trip experience! I will be following her around the world on future trips." -Elora N.
"Recently came back from Thailand with under30 and I’m so glad I decided to go on this trip. This was my first trip like this and the farthest I have ever traveled. There’s no way I would have planned and done all the activities that we did and I’m so happy I decided to travel this way. I had so many great experiences and formed awesome friendships. This will definitely not be my last trip with under30!" -Camille S.
