Sash Missaghi

Sash, a native of Iran has been a truth seek­er and Yogi since his ear­ly child­hood. His father gave him two fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples for spir­i­tu­al growth “Gno­tise auto” ‘: know your­self’ from Bud­dha and a quote from Con­fu­cius “Don’t do unto oth­ers what you don’t want oth­ers to do unto you”.

Ever since then, he seeks to come to a full under­stand­ing of the con­nec­tion of body and mind. Whilst a stu­dent in India study­ing psy­chol­o­gy at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Poona where he also con­firmed his Yoga with Mas­ter Iyen­gar at his Insti­tute of Yoga.

Sash arrived in Bel­gium in 1983, soon teach­ing Yoga whilst a stu­dent in clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gy at the Catholic Uni­ver­si­ty of Lou­vain, mak­ing also Yoga his top­ic of research.  In 1998  he final­ly decid­ed to make the prac­tice of Yoga his full-time life call­ing, leav­ing careers in psy­chol­o­gy and busi­ness. Over the last 30 years, Sash has taught Yoga and spread its light to thou­sands of stu­dents. He took stu­dents for retreats and Yoga vaca­tion to India and oth­er places such as Greece and Mallorca.

As a Mas­ter (acharya) he began to instruct yoga teach­ers with his own cur­ricu­lum as of 2010. Many stu­dents have turned to Sash for spir­i­tu­al coun­sel­ing, yoga ther­a­py and coach­ing. Health clubs and Yoga teach­ers alike often invite him as a lec­tur­er and speak­er on Yoga and the art of liv­ing. He has shown the pow­er of advanced Asanas in numer­ous demon­stra­tions. Above all, Sash believes that through the earnest and full prac­tice of Yoga, human­i­ty can be trans­formed into an eter­nal­ly peace­ful society.
