Emilio, known as Lucho, grew up in Caracas, Venezuela. As a junior player he reached top 10 for his country. He went on to receive a full tennis scholarship from Northeastern Estate University which he followed with a Master’s degree on finance from Compañia de Formacion Empresarial in Madrid. Lucho has been teaching tennis for several decades, most notably at Total Tennis in Saugerties, New York. Lucho also has ten years of experience guiding meditation and energy healing (luchoness.com) and brings a fresh approach on awareness, intention, attention and inner flow in/out of the tennis court.
It’s therefore not surprising that Lucho’s favorite quote is "Peak performance is more about states of consciousness than skill sets"
