Yoga.in is run by a small team made up of passionate and independent people working from all parts of the world.
Steve is the project manager for yoga.in. He defines the website's roadmap, plans new features and coordinates their visual design and technical implementation, and oversees the content writing team.
Besides a growing interest in yoga, his main passion is surfing and he organizes his life in Bali according to the moods of the Indian Ocean.
Steve's goals include: make yoga.in the best website for yoga in India, travel to see new landscapes and taste new foods, learn yoga, and keep surfing all the while.
Mathias started his first Internet project way back in the year 2000. He was thrilled by the Internet and its possibilities, and remains so today. He is managing director of the Earth.org GmbH, which has launched several websites with a focus on Yoga and Ayurveda.
After living in Italy and Berlin for several years, Mathias came to Munich in South Germany. He enjoys meaningful projects, sports, excursions to the close mountains of the Alps, and the relaxing mood of a metropolis which modestly calls itself "The Village of a Million Inhabitants". He loves working remotely - thanks to the Internet - with a great team of people from all over the world.
Otto Stricker is the entrepreneurial force behind yoga.in, one of a small handful of beloved Internet-based projects, in which he now plays a team role.
Originally from Germany, Otto is a citizen of the world, regularly traveling as the power of the Internet allows him to connect with his team from almost anywhere on the map. 2011 saw Otto traveling through India (where he lived for four years), researching for the book Yoga In India - A Journey to the Top 24 Yoga Places, the hard-copy partner to the yoga.in website.
As well as yoga, Otto enjoys practicing surfing, preferably in Bali.
