Swami Sachidanand-compressed

Swami Sachidanand

BACKGROUND : Swami Sachidanand, born in Chandigarh, North India embarked on his spiritual journey at a young age, spending much of his childhood in meditation. He was born and initiated into the Vedantic Tradition. Yoga, especially Bhakti Yoga and Meditation are his lifelong passions and he longs to share these with the world.

EDUCATION : He was sent to an Ashram to study Sanskrit Language, Yoga, Meditation, Mantra Chanting, Vedic Scriptures along with contemporary education, on the advice of a family Guru who observed his inclinations towards study and self-exploration. He later studied and graduated in Yoga Philosophy (Eastern and Western) from Kurukshetra University in Haryana and continued his studies Post Graduation at Punjab University, North India.

Throughout his studies (formal education) he was greatly inspired and motivated by Swami Vinodanand ji, one of his teenage Guru’s who taught and initiated him practically in Basic Yogic Kriyas, Pranayama and Meditation. Having completed his University Education and learning Basic Yogic Kriyas from Swami ji, he began travelling India and Nepal sharing the Ancient Vedic Wisdom of Yoga, Philosophy and Meditation. While in Rishikesh, Swami met HH Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar jr, whose wisdom inspired him to start teaching “Art of Living” courses and programmes.

Having spent a few years both teaching and learning in the well known AOL Ashram, in 2013 Swami moved to Rishikesh and registered “Art D’vine”, an organisation focused on teaching traditional Hatha Yoga (D’vine Yoga) both in Rishikesh and Dharamshala. In 2015 he registered with Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 200, RYT 500) and began training others to become teachers. Swami has taught all over the world including Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Belarus, Russia and China conducting yoga and philosophy courses and seminars.

In 2016 Swami arrived in Thailand from China for a short visit, where he came across a Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training (AYTTC - 800 Hour) with International Association of Yoga Therapist (IAYT) at Amrita Healing Centre. This course gave him the Western medical perspective on Yoga, providing him with a more complete understanding of Yoga and its benefits from a medical perspective. He is currently running “Art D’vine Trust” registered with Govt. of India and “D’vine Yoga School” registered with Yoga Alliance (USA)
