What makes the Method unique?

“Look for comfort, not for pain.”

Drawing it’s roots from classical Hatha Yoga and heavily influenced by Iyengar Yoga, Deepak’s method is unique in it’s accessibility, attention to detail and depth.

Rather than trying to achieve perfection by pushing the body past it’s limits with the power of the mind, this method invites the practitioners to quiet the mind and listen deeply to their bodies.

By using the body as the object of meditation we increase our faculty of self-awareness. This allows one to feel every part of one’s body and awaken it’s natural tendencies for self-healing and rejuvenation. We rest and breathe in the posture, releasing stored up tensions and resistance, and observe our body gently guiding us deeper into alignment.

Using connectivity and compactness we learn to feel the flow of energy through our bodies (Pancha Prana), bringing lightness to the postures and preventing injuries to our joints, tendons and ligaments.

Above all, the practice cultivates a feeling of ease, comfort and peace within our bodies (and minds), as we go about our life, on or off the mat. This sense of connectedness and flow starts to permeate and illuminate every aspect of our self, enhancing our aliveness and inviting joy into every moment.

Additionally, workshop classes can be fatiguing. Your mind-body will have a lot of integration to do which requires proper rest. Lectures are not considered proper rest.

Accommodation is not included. It is recommended to arrive a few days earlier and book your stay.

Testimonials 🥰

“I have done Deepaji’s workshop 3 times and have already committed to 2 more this year. Each time the understanding lands and integrates deeper. Through his workshops, I’ve improved the way I walk, lower back pain is a thing of the past, chronic neck pain reducing, and I have a better overall sense of where to put my attention in my practice.

I will continue to recommend his course to anyone who wants to understand how to let the body lead the way and become aware of where the mind is dominating – not just being told to listen to the body as a concept, but being SHOWN, step-by-step, in detail, HOW to slow down and listen to what YOUR body is telling YOU, and how to respond to that in a way that is TRULY HEALING for you.

Not only is he a knowledgeable and experienced asana teacher, but as an ex-sportsman, he has healed himself and now others through many injuries, and as a Naturopathic doctor, with a natural gift for energy healing, he has a wider lens through which he observes and senses every individual student and attends to each of your needs specifically.

Deepakji is an excellent yoga teacher and an all-round brilliant human being to be around – you’ll see him practicing yoga off the mat, in the community, through charitable projects, and doting on his beautiful little daughter.

Join his workshop and be inspired to cultivate a long lasting and deeply healing yoga practice for life.” – Kalpa Gosrani
