Deepa Ji’s Bio

“For me Love is to give happiness to yourself to not ‘beat up’ yourself...If you can share what you have and your happiness even with someone who hurt you, then that is love.”


Qus. When is your birthday and star sign?

Ans. April 16th and I am a Taurus according to Indian Astrology. 

Qus. As a teacher what do you focus on most?

Ans. Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Mantra Chanting and Laughing yoga 

Qus.What Yoga teacher training course do you teach and for how long have you been with Rishikul Yogshala?

Ans. 200 hour and 300 hour and I have been teaching at Rishikul Yogshala for 2-3 years. Read less

Qus. When you are feeling stressed or a little ‘down’ emotionally, what yoga technique helps you the most?
Ans. I focus on my breath and try to breathe more deeply, conscious breathing, in order to become calm. I also focus on my spiritual Master, Krishna and by doing so I am filled with so much love that I quickly forget about my stress or any anger that had previously arisen. 

Qus. What is Spirituality to you?
Ans. For me spirituality is happiness, being consistent within and finding a balance with yourself. It’s not a constant fluctuation of extremes, it’s a like a stable line that remains no matter the external factors. 

Qus. Can spirituality be found around in nature?
Ans. Yes, of course spirituality can be found in nature! Actually there is one kind of meditation, walking meditation, where each step is a conscious movement. A true observation and awareness of every single thing that is around you like the trees, flowers, birds etc. 

Qus. Can you define happiness?
Ans. Happiness is not like one day I get a gift and ‘oh I am so happy to get this gift!!’ that maybe is happiness for the moment, 1 hour or 1 day, it is not consistent, it is more celebratory. The happiness I speak of is like one state of your mind where you feel like you are satisfied with almost all situations because it comes from deep inside and it is not based solely on the situation. 

Qus. How do you feel that one of the few female teachers not only in Rishikul Yogshala but also in Rishikesh?
Ans. As an Indian woman, I started off in an environment where women normally don’t go. Even my family and friends thought that I was crazy for following this path because of all the difficulties that would arise as a woman. I kept practicing and following my path and managed have been in places where women aren’t allowed to go e.g. meditating in a cave in the Himalayas. I think with many years of dedicated practice, I have gained the support and respect of all those around me. If you love something truly and you know how to show that then people will respect and support you no matter what. 

Qus. Apart from teaching Yoga, what are your hobbies?
Ans. Oh I like many things! But I mainly like to take photographs, walk in nature, travel and discover. I also love to cook for myself but mainly other people!
