Ian and Sascha met in Chile in 1999, and have been friends ever since. Together with music and other creative projects Jivamukti Yoga has been a passion that they have shared for several years, both finally taking the Jivamukti Certification but also branching out into different areas of Yoga and Veganism.
Sascha is a german director, producer and videographer with a strong passion for food, yoga and thai yoga massage.
He fell in love with yoga India in 2011. In the same year he attended his first Jivamukti class in the Jivamukti Yoga Studio Berlin. In 2013 he graduated from the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training in New York where he studied with his teachers Ruth Lauer Manenti, Sharon Gannon & David Life.
Over the last years he has been combining his skills and his passions. Cooking at the Jivamukti Canteen in Berlin, on different retreats in Germany and Ibiza and traveling a lot filming yoga events.
In 2014 he attended his first Thai Yoga Massage course in the Sunshine House in Greece and returned already two times to be with his teacher Krishnataki and deepen his practice.
"I am GRATEFUL THAT I AM ABLE TO COMBINE MY SKILLS WITH MY PASSIONS. ESPECIALLY WHEN I GET THE CHANCE TO COOK FOR PEOPLE AND LET THEM EXPERIENCE THE ABBUNDANCE AND JOY A VEGAN DIET CAN BRING INTO YOUR LIFE!"
