About the Course


Yoga with 'Deep' is a healing-based therapeutic technique & workout that is based on proper alignment & anatomical awareness & education. The aim of the training is to restore balanced & correct posture to the body through neutral positioning of the limbs from feet, knees, pelvis, spine, ribcage & skull. According to modern studies, a balanced posture allows the human body to develop strength & stamina, whilst healing faster & more efficiently.

We offer a breath-based yoga teacher training, which means your breath will be your guide towards the posture that is right for you. An important concept to understand is the importance of diaphragm-breathing. The diaphragm is a muscle in the abdominal cavity that contracts during inhalation. When posture is imbalanced, the rib cage & spine are in a position that does not allow them to correctly use the proper muscles during breathing, which leads to other muscles being overused & strained. This is one of the physiological reasons of muscle stress injury.

  yoga teacher group training  

Besides that, the yoga sutras state that an undeveloped & poor breathing pattern is one of the main reasons of numerous psychological problems. Therefore, along with the proper poses & counter poses, specific pranayama are taught to bring the body into perfect equilibrium.Postural adjustment through yoga asana is a traditional & unique scientific way. Yoga teachers & therapists with knowledge of this specific technique can help a practitioner use their body in a more balanced & correct way in their yoga practice as well as daily life.

Students will be taught the importance of proper warming up of the muscles to prevent injuries. The Pawanmuktasana series which comprises of 15 asanas will be taught to open up the hips, knees & joints, & allow blood flow to the muscles, nerves & inner glands.

Students will be taught the proper use of props like blocks, blankets, chairs, bolsters etc. to reap the full benefits of asana. The usage of props is to promote healing & recovery from injuries whilst preventing mis-alignment in the body.

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 didn't 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.

I am happy for Joining this Teacher Training Course by Deep . If I never take the very first step to join this, I would never know that I could even go further. From the very first day, I voiced out my main purpose of joining this is to learn what is actually yoga, and I am happy that Deep has given me the answer. With meditation, my mental and physical body have gotten a relief. I have learnt a lot throughout this course, especially alignment in asanas and with correct alignment, therapeutic effect comes by itself with those asanas. Deep has never failed to listen to my questions and trying his best to work on the problem according to our body anatomy. To me, this is somehow life changing and I have found my passion in yoga Namaste~

Tantra Yin Yoga Training with Deep in New Delhi: a real jewel!!!! It's been a great opportunity and a great honour 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!!!

Guru Mukh


At the age of 7 years, Guru Mukh was sent to a monastery by his parents where he lived for next 12 years. During his study years in monastery, he learnt different philosophies about life revealed to him by ancient Indian sages. This pious learning at an early age laid a strong spiritual foundation in his nature. At the monastery, he also came to learn about ancient meditation techniques through traditional hatha yoga practice.

After his monastery education, he took a diploma in Computer Science and started a career as web designer. In 2008, after working in the IT industry for 5 years, Guru Mukh finally decided to quit his job and follow the path he believed he was born to tread upon. He received OSHO Sanyaas Initiation in the same year and OSHO's vibrant spiritual lessons helped him in further on the path he has chosen for himself.

Since then he has been an inseparable part of yoga community. Here at Siddhi Yoga, he shares his understanding in the teachings of Traditional Hatha Yoga, Philosophies, Pranayama, Meditations and various Cleansing Processes, while occasionally expressing his being through Reiki, Singing and Playing a String Instrument called 'Dilruba'.

As he puts it, "Yoga surely helps to stay relaxed in any degree of situational and emotional intensity."

I knew within the first few moments of meeting Gurumukh that he was a true yoga teacher who does not merely practice and teach yoga, but truly lives by it in each moment. I have been fortunate to have been around many great yoga teachers, and none of them with as deep a commitment and complete understanding of yoga as him. If you are looking to learn yoga in it's truest form, you couldn't find anyone better in all of India. He has the ability to take difficult to understand concepts and turn them into relatable experiences for his students. Everyone in our training immediately fell in love with him and shared a deep connection to his teaching style which is full of laughter, joy, love and insight. He is not just a teacher but a dear friend, a mentor, and a student himself. I feel so, so lucky to have met him and to be able to call him my friend.

- Adam Carney, Los Angeles, CA

Gurumukh was my philosophy teacher during my teacher training and I think that he is one of the most inspiring persons I met . In his philosophy classes he was sharing the ancient and traditional practices of yoga as well as talking on many philosophical questions of a great importance then and now. With a good sense of empathy and flexibility he was open to explore whatever came up in the class , picking up every student on his own level of understanding . Gurumukhs words are profound and deep but still there is always a lot of space for joy and laughter. He is one of those teachers with whom you feel that they are living their wisdom every single day . Under his gentle and warm guidance we could create a space for gaining a deeper understanding how important love and togetherness are. In Meditation classes we explored many different ways and techniques to find meditation and exchanged our experiences. The compound of deep wisdom and his spreading joy personality is very authentic and unique and touched my heart deep inside.
