Yoga Style: My favourite style of teaching and practicing yoga is when I combine the modern researches of postural alignments of human body from west and traditional eastern understandings of Prana(the vital energy) with its relation to the human body. Hence through postural alignments an opportunity is created where a yogi can stay present here and now. It helps the yogi to achieve a balance of strength and flexibility. And further more through this presence and strength the yogi explores the importance of breath to understand his own mind. So I love to deliver in my style where through body alignments and rhythmic breath the yogi discovers the deeper realms of meditation in the simple movements of the body.
Programs I teach at Siddhi Yoga: I lead 200 hrs and 300 hrs Yoga Teacher Training programs. My Teaching revolves around Postural alignments and its Psychology. I prepare my students to understand the need of different types of body and mind and to design unique yoga programs according to groups and individuals.
Favorite yoga pose: When it comes to favorite poses, choice is not easy but still My favorite Yoga Poses are Downward facing dog, Plank, warrior family, Boat, hand stand, head stand etc.
My favorite place in the world: I love the places which are really full with natural beauty. Water, mountains and lovely people’s . So any place which have all these becomes my favorite, but life is beautiful here and now. One of My Favorite place is the world Capital of yoga, RISHIKESH but BALI also has a beautiful place in my heart.

I loved every minute of my teacher training with Deep. Deep teaches passionately from his heart, and you can’t help but feel inspired to pass on the knowledge you learn from him. It wasn’t my intention to become a yoga teacher after completing my YTTC, but to deepen my knowledge for my personal practice, HOWEVER, I felt so strongly towards sharing everything I learned from Deep that I started teaching as soon as I got home, and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Deep for inspiring me to lead a more improved lifestyle,and for sharing your heart felt wisdom with me. “Life is beautiful my friends….” Namaste.
I recently returned from Deep’s Yoga training in India and I can tell you every time I think about it I get such a warm feeling inside. I learnt a lot about alignment but even more important I learnt a lot about life and love and that the only thing that is really important is being happy in every moment. It is hard to express actually in words but I hope anyone who reads this gets the gist!
Deep is a wonderful yoga teacher. He incorporates modern anatomical alignments rather then going by the old fashioned way and you are getting more benefits with the modern way and most importantly doing it correctly. His way of teaching is fun and he interacts with every students. I have learnt so much in 4 weeks with Deep. He makes yoga learning a very enjoyable journey. Thank you Deep.
If you are going to learn the tradition of yoga why not a man from India?! At least this was my way of thinking. Deep has perfected his craft so deeply that he is the universe. Love1 ! Anybody can teach yoga, but to continue to learn the art of teaching you are not just helping others, you are helping yourself. This is life. Deep understands one must have a root spiritual connection with thyself first, which is the key. You cannot light someones else candle if your candle isn’t lit. I will always be a disciple of his teaching and will continue to travel where his spirit is present to see a great friend, guru and learn more of this secret knowledge of simply living. As we look at the sun, it doesn’t actually disappear. It is always there you nut lol. A diamond will always be a diamond, but sometimes you just have to dust it off because it is always shining lol. Namaste my friends.
Completing the 200 YTTC in India with Deep has been by far one of the most enriching experiences of my life. Deep teaches from a place of passion and knowledge, he pushes you to question everything and find your own path both as a teacher and as a student. His energy and zest for life are both inspiring and infectious.
Deep’s training has sown a seed for transformation in my life. What I would have learnt through many years of reading and practice, I have learnt in this one month. His passion and dedication for yoga is addictive and gets ingrained into you. Even though I had gone to the training for myself, I came out confident that I can teach others.
Hoping that I will be able to train with him again in the future.
I did my teacher training with Deep in January 2016, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience. Deep has an incredible wealth of knowledge about the body and proper alignments to make yoga a healing, mindful, and therapeutic practice. You could give him any posture and he would know exactly how to modify it for clients suffering from any sort of injury or illness. I was very impressed with his anatomical understanding of yoga. He also brought a lot of energy and fun into our practice, and I appreciated the balance between hard work and play. This is a man who truly lives yoga, and his love is contagious. I learned so much from him, and I feel that I’ve got a really strong foundation after completing the 200 hour teacher training course. I’m so excited to spread the knowledge and understanding gained during that month and get into my own teaching style. Thanks so much, Deep, for all of your help! Much love.
What can I tell u about deep!? He has the most amazing energy that will make everyone happy when he walks in the room, I’m so happy that I got to be one of his students in the TTC in Goa. He knows his anatomy,ALIGNMENTS all the way and philosophy of a yogic life,he will tell u everything u need to know about asanas and pranayama breathing…… Thank u deep for bringing the best in me and helping me become a yoga teacher.
I was lucky enough to have Deep as my yoga instructor in Goa for the 200 hour course in January. It changed my life, and my yoga practice for the better. Not only is Deep an incredibly inspiring and professional teacher, combing ancient wisdom and modern physiology, he also has a wonderful humanity and profound insight into how our bodies affect our minds. He spent a month working not only on the foundations of my alignments, but also opening my hips and shoulders, in order that I may release years of oppressed emotion and grow as a human being. Thanks to Deep, the journey of my life and practice has altered forever.
Deep is an inspirational, devoted and genuinely wonderful yoga teacher. He offers a unique approach to teaching, gifting his students with detailed lessons on alignment while ensuring that everyone is maximizing their practice in the most safe and beneficial way. I have a great amount of respect for him, he is a “life-enhancer” as I like to call it, someone who is fun to be around and makes the world a better place. Thank you Deep, for showing me the juiciness to life!
Deep is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had in any subject, and his passion for yoga shines through all of his being. He loves it & lives it. He’s so genuinely caring about his students, patient and accepting, he uplifts and inspires everyone around him. I am not a “morning person”, but during the 200HR TTC in Bali, I woke up excited every morning at 5:30am & couldn’t wait to see what awesome experience Deep had planned for us that day.
The content of the course was well organized & thorough. Deep’s method of yoga gives you the fundamentals of alignment which can be applied clearly to any posture and he guides you through the postures based on key safety points that are often left out of typical yoga classes. Deep also naturally ties in the philosophical side of yoga in his teachings, explaining everything in a down-to-earth, easily digestible way.
The course went over & beyond my expectations, and I would highly recommend Deep as an instructor to anyone wanting to understand yoga and meditation at a deeper level and/or learn to teach in a responsible & inspiring way. Just have an open mind and be ready for a MAJOR life change.
Learning anything new needs a lot of patience and understanding. But when you have a teacher like Deep, who has in-depth knowledge, vast experience, amazing teaching skills and love and compassion for teaching, learning becomes ultimate joy and happiness. Feel very fortunate to have learnt yoga from Deep.
Deep was our lead yoga teacher for a 200hr yoga teacher training course in Bali in September this year. His amazing knowledge of the human body ensured that we learnt each asana in an anatomically correct (and safe) way. This has changed the way I go yoga, and my body feels healthier than it ever has as a result. The way Deep taught us not only about the asana practice, but about the breath, energy, healthy eating and living a responsible yogic lifestyle has opened my eyes to a broader definition of yoga. I’ll have the knowledge forever. Thank you Deep for sharing your love of yoga with us.
Amazing teacher, I enjoy every second thanks for be an inspiration not just as a yoga teacher but as human been 🙂 Gracias !!
Combining ancient yogic practice & modern science Master Deep has truly unique methodology of teaching.
My yoga teacher’s training course in Bali has changed the way I think & practice yoga overall. I sincerely believe that Deep has transformed me into a Yoga Teacher for this century where lifestyle has changed & evolved. My heartfelt thanks to Deep for this awesome transition.
I am so lucky to get the chance to be a one of his students. I learned a lot from him. It was a really great experience. Thanks Deep..
As a teacher Deep is so approachable, compassionate, has good sense of humour and shows heightened sensitivity to his students. His teaching has much emphasis on correct alignment, safety, modifications and proper sequencing. Deep is against his students going beyond what the body can handle to prevent risk of injury. We were given not just the technical understanding of asanas but the whole philosophy of yoga.
Thank you for your generosity Deep ji…. We had so much fun during our YTTC
I am learning so much attending Deep Yoga Therapy course now. I realised that my previous yoga instructor course didn’t equip me with the correct techniques and right approach to practice and teach yoga. This is very sad and happens to majority of yoga students and yoga instructors. Much injury and further damage can be avoided and as a result true healing of body mind and breath can happen. Namaste
At first, YOGA = postures. After taking the course, I’m not only able to do the advance postures, I’ve learned and found something new in stead!!! To me, YOGA is to be “BALANCE” in all the way. Each individual hv their own and different balancing, we need to find that very formula out which leads us to the happiness life! Thank you Deep, my great and fun teacher sooo much for guiding me to this very important chapter of my life. Namaste
A blissful experience, deep teachings are much more than the traditional yoga poses , it is a self discovery journey that I would recommend for anyone who wants to experience great changes physically, mentally or even on bliss level.
A life changing experience! A beautiful start of an interesting journey! That’s what I got from you and your course Deep! And much more than words could say! I’m grateful for you and best course I’ve ever had until now! Thank you!
I´m very thankful that I could attend teachers training with Deep. It was better than I could have imagined ….. wonderful experience. I enjoyed it a lot. Deep knows a lot about yoga and he share it with love and fun. Thank you Deep. Life is beautiful and juicy:)
Deep is the best yoga teacher I have met. Gave deep insight into the science of yoga. We learned the correct postures for every yoga poses. Breathing is also deeper with his guidance.
Thanks Deep, whom without, I will not be able to appreciate the simple joy of breathing and happiness!
Though I only had 3 days working with Deep, I absolutely enjoyed his thorough Yoga instruction, relaxed teaching style, warm and fun-loving attitude, and positive energy. His technical knowledge is extensive and I hope to, sometime in the future, take a longer course with him. He is, truly, one of a kind.
When most of us has constrained yoga to difficult and advanced posture, DEEP has opened my eyes and mind to the actual meaning of yoga. Through the eight limbs of yoga, I have found peace of mind. Life is too short for bad days, make it enjoyable, practice yoga, practice deep with DEEP YOGA.
Excellent education on mind & body. He’s caring ,understanding & welcoming to anyone & everyone who are entering in learning this art.
An oomph teacher ) created amazing learning atmosphere to students.
Thanks for the guidance, a great learning journey!
All I could say is, unstoppable learning from you Deep!
Deep, thank you very much for everything!

Plus the fun, laughter and joy aspects, made this course an amazing experience for me. Thank you again, Deep..namaste.
I had the pleasure to be in Deep’s company as a host for 3 weeks in Egypt. Deep is a bundle of joy and has an overflow of happiness that affects everyone around him.
I took the yin yoga TTC with Deep, which gave me a clear understanding about the correct asanas, my body, my breath, that didnt just help me with my Yoga practice but with my life in general!
Thank you Deep for coming to egypt and helping so many students ♥
An honor and a blessing to have you as my teacher. It has been an amazing journey and this beautiful journey continues. Namaste 🙂
A total new journey in my learning path. Feeling so grateful and blessed to have you guiding me to explore more to inner self and personal growth. This has given me a more optimistic perspective towards life …….Thank You Teacher Deep…..Our 5 Star teacher…..
Tantra Yin Yoga Training with Deep in New Delhi: a real jewel!!!! It’s been a great opportunity and a great honor to have been able to participate in this very unique training, that for the first time integrates Yoga, Tantra and Tao without clashes. It brings the complementary aspects of each of these disciplines together, while keeping the essence that is common to all of them.
Not only the training is unique, Deep is a very unique yoga instructor that lives what he teaches and in this way it inspires with his own example. His approach is very sincere, as he shares what is in his heart and what he knows from direct experience (not just from the books), so much wisdom!!! At the same time it is lots of fun, resourceful, spontaneous, developing continuously, relaxing, meditative,… so many qualities and talents are shared through Deep! A great teacher to learn from and a great man to be around! 😉
All the gratitude Deep!!!

Who am i…. Who are You…
I am just a living thing at this PRESENT moment. Yoga is not only a physical exercise but a healing breathing yoga Pranayama, it healed my injured soul. Without a lot of motivational words, I have entered into a new life of breathing , spreading love and positive thoughts to people around me. I am thankful to Premo Deep that made this happened in the PRESENT.
Any Tom, Dick & Harry can practice & teach asana. The modern world has become obsessed with asana that they forget that it is merely one of the many limbs of yoga. For those seeking the true essence of yoga – yoga as a way of life – Deep is the right person to go to.
