Deep Yoga was founded by Dr Gurdeep Singh Athwal in early 2018, after many years of thinking about how to give back and spread the knowledge of Yoga to the masses, whilst respecting the ancient traditions, but embracing evolution. Thus, this strong classical background in the teachings and philosophies of Yoga has led to this juncture. This desire to have a place that everyone is welcomed to practice Yoga as they see fit for themselves, or perhaps begin their journey has meant the creation of Deep Yoga. A simple desire to maintain the highest standards and ethics of teaching, in a space providing fun, invigorating and challenging experiences in which anyone, beginner or expert, can all share.
A path upon which anyone can travel, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, size, fitness or lifestyle.
All our teachers are experienced professionals, but always remain students themselves.
Authenticity is at the heart of our being and culture here at Deep Yoga. We all are conscious of the role a Yoga teacher can play in peoples lives, especially in times of need, hence we live by the values we encourage in others.
Building a Community
The studio is an anchor for yoga and wellbeing. A opportunity to spend time with other like minded souls. Maybe go on to be a teacher.
We believe in always being good to others. Be selfless. Mentally remove everything and be free. This is divine life. This is the way to Moksha or salvation.
Why Deep Yoga?
The Enso is a Zen Buddhism symbol, and is usually drawn as one or two uninhibited brush stroke to create a circle, which we all view differently. It may symbolise STRENGTH, ELEGANCE, THE UNIVERSE and ENLIGHTENMENT. For us all it is characterised by the simplicity of minimalism.
The circle is incomplete, metaphorically allowing for movement and development and symbolically representing the beauty of imperfection.
WHY ARE WE CALLED DEEP? Deep is the Sanskrit for light, with which the Guru (teacher) can see clearly. In English, the meaning can be just as profound. Deep can be having a greater understanding than the simple superficial. Going beyond the surface, and becoming immersed in your understanding and comprehension of what Yoga is for you and others. Think DEEP.
The mission of Deep Yoga is to support and nurture each and every soul we come into contact with. We aim to make a difference in people’s lives. As a yoga studio and community, the common thread is transformation, illumination, awakening the mind, and accessing the unlimited power within us all, both on and off the mat.
All of our teachers have been carefully chosen and have their own unique backgrounds, experience and styles. We encourage you to try classes with us all to help bring out the best in you and your practice.
Expect a warm welcome, passionate people and heart-opening yoga!
I had an amazing experience of having have a few classes from Gurdeep, at my TTC program, I can’t forget how much creative and special the classes were, the music, the advanced flows and even the adjustments to the students. Had my own experience; Gurdeep’s standing on my thighs in butterfly pose.
On this journey Gurdeep became more of friend and completely changed my mindset that yoga wasn’t for the “gym going man” to having the understanding as to why it’s so important to implement yoga into your gym or personal training routine. I am very grateful for this experience.
Gurdeep taught classes in the YTTC training I undertook in India in 2016. His lessons were always thoughtfully and professionally assembled and built, and Gurdeep was a patient and precise teacher. I would love to practice yoga with him again and keep a very warm memory of our practices.
It was the best experience to have someone like Gurdeep Ji , as my teacher, during my YTT course in Dharamshala, about 5 years ago, at Mahi Yoga School. He has immense knowledge on the subject, is kind and amazing power to share the knowledge.
Gurdeep was one of the teachers during my 200 hr YTT. He was knowledgeable, precise with instructions and very dedicated as both a teacher and a practitioner. He went deep into the subject matter, which helped the students greatly
I was lucky that I got a chance to practice yoga under Gurdeep in the Himalayas. Gurdeep is very detail and professional in his teachings . What a wonderful person he is and I definitely recommend him.
Gurdeep is a yoga teacher with a very clear explanation of postures. His approach is supportive, challenging and he teaches with lots of enthusiasm. I’m working as a physiotherapist and from that perspective I could really tell he has a lot of knowledge about shape and alignment.
Gurdeep is an experienced and wonderful yoga teacher. His style of teaching is challenging, strong and very focused. With special attention on alignment.
I would highly recommend training with Gurdeep as he has so much knowledge to pass down and will guide you every step of the way on your yoga journey. Gurdeep still to this day checks in and keeps up on how we are going. A very beautiful human.
It has been fascinating to watch and learn from Gurdeep, especially how he breakdowns postures to make them accessible to every Yoga practitioner. I have known Gurdeep since 2016 and I always look forward for an opportunity to practice and learn more from him.
From the very first lesson with Gurdeep I felt challenged, supported and inspired as a student. His gentle, yet firm approach, mixed with his professionalism and extensive knowledge, enabled me to embark on a journey of growth and discovery as a yoga practitioner.
I want to let you know I had been thinking of you and the experience I had while in India. I felt love, the kind that had a depth of kindness and understanding, of seeing and supporting me as I was.
