|Sachendra started learning yoga at the age of 5 under private tutelage of his uncle who studied with different teachers from Rishikesh and Prayag. This rigorous training continued until his early teens. Around the time he turned seven, he met his science teacher at primary school, who was also a dedicated yogi from Varanasi, specialised in the physical aspect of yoga. Feeling constantly inspired by his teacher's belief in his talent, Sachendra kept on pushing the limits of his physical endurance. It was during that time when he first experienced the vibrating flow of energy through his entire body. That led him to realise that there was a lot more than a naked eye could see. Thirsty to discover the wisdom of life through Yoga, Sachendra dedicated himself to hours of daily practice with passion and incessant curiosity.|
Later on, Sachendra decided to take time off from the academic studies and dedicated himself completely to the practice of Yoga and inner self-exploration. During this year, he travelled a great deal around India soaking in the wisdom of different spiritual teachers, real life yogis and ascetics.
Sachendra has also received formal yoga training, in traditions such as, Sivananda Yoga, T. Krishnamacharya under B.N.S. Iyengar. He has taught Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Raja Yoga, Mantra, Kundalini Meditation, Wellness and Holistic Yoga, and Teacher Training Certification programmes for over a decade in various countries, including India, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, Australia, Taiwan, Singapore and some European nations.
Sachendra's teaching style brings warmth and humour as well as progressive instruction to students with an emphasis on the positive force of Life. Having discovered his inner healing powers that regenerated him during the difficult time, he encourages students to unleash their own inner potential and heal from within.
