Emanuele Specchio bio photo

Swami Sachidanand, hailing from North India, commenced his spiritual journey in early childhood, immersing himself in Vedic knowledge and Vedantic traditions.  Sent to an Ashram during childhood to study Sanskrit, Yoga, Meditation, and Vedic Scriptures, Swami Sachidanand received contemporary education alongside his spiritual pursuits. Graduate in Yoga Philosophy (Eastern and Western) from Punjab University, he was initiated into Basic Yogic Kriyas, Pranayamas, and Meditations by Swami Vinodanand. Further, he delved into Traditional Tantra and Mantras under the guidance of H.H. Avdhoot Baba Shivanand Ji.

Yoga Journey:

Having completed University Education and Yoga Alliance Certification, Swamiji embarked on a journey to share the Ancient Vedic Wisdom of the Yogic Lifestyle. He taught Art D’vine Yoga courses globally and, in 2013, founded “Art D’vine Yoga” in Rishikesh, India. In 2015, D’vine Yoga became a registered Yoga Alliance school, offering Teacher Training Courses.


Therapeutic Yoga Expertise:

In 2016, Swami Sachidanand completed a 980-Hour Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training under the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) at Amrita Healing Centre. This comprehensive course integrates Western medical science perspectives with Eastern Yogic Wisdom, enriching his teaching with a holistic approach.


Current Initiatives:

Swami is currently based in Rishikesh, running “Art D’vine” registered with the Government of India and “D’vine Yoga” registered with Yoga Alliance (USA). As a dedicated student of yoga since childhood, a post-graduate in Yoga Philosophy, a 500-Hour E-RYT with Yoga Alliance, and holding a 980-Hour Therapeutic AYTTC, Master Swami Sachidanand continues to inspire and guide seekers on their yogic journey.


Swami carries the traditional teachings of Tantra, initiated by H.H. Avdhoot Shivananda Ji, and Vedic teaching of Vedas, Upanishads in the linage of Adi Shankaracharya, enriching his practice with profound spiritual insights.

Join Swami Sachidanand on a transformative journey into the heart of yoga, where ancient wisdom meets modern understanding, paving the way for a balanced and harmonious life. With a profound passion for traditional Hatha Yoga and Kundalini Yoga, Swami is dedicated to sharing these transformative practices globally, fostering love, peace, joy, and happiness.
