Yoga Nidra is one of the most useful and practical gift yoga has given to the humanity. It’s an ancient yogic and tantric practice to consciously relax the deepest layers of body, mind and soul. It’s also a technique of Pratyahara (the sense withdrawal) i.e. the fifth limb of Ashtanga Yoga. It has the power to transform you at subconscious and unconscious levels. The term yoga nidra is made from two words, yoga meaning one-pointed awareness and nidra means sleep. In yoga nidra one appears to be asleep but the consciousness keeps functioning at a deeper level of awareness. That’s why it’s often referred as psychic sleep as well.
It’s been proven by scientific research that a 30 minutes of yoga nidra practice can give the benefits of almost two hours of regular sleep. The EEGs and brain mapping shows that yoga nidra generates synchronised and symmetrical alpha and delta waves at the same time. During yoga nidra practice the contact with the subconscious and unconscious dimensions occurs spontaneously and that has the power to even transform one’s nature.
You must have heard of yogis who never sleep or sleep very little but never get tired. Do you know the secret of their boundless energy? Yoga Nidra is the answer. Our ancient yogis and sages have been using this technique for thousands of years so that they can save time by sleeping less so that they can spend more time in their spiritual practice and philanthropic activities. Yoga Nidra is actually a complete meditation technique in itself and can take you to the state of Samadhi i.e. enlightenment.

Deepak is the founder of Sampoorna Yoga, Goa and Costa Rica. He founded Sampoorna in 2008 after taking part in a 10-days Vipassana meditation retreat in Sri Goenka Tradition. He has been practicing yoga for 30 years and has been teaching actively for the last 25 years. He has graduated more than 11,000 international yoga teachers till date.
Yoga has been part of his family for many generations. Be it his grandfather, father or his mother, they all have been spiritual seekers. Yoga started to become part of his life when he was merely 12 years old. It started when his father asked him to assist him in his yoga workshops. His role was to merely organise the yoga mats and supply ‘warm & salted’ water to the participants during yogic cleansing techniques. It was through the keen observation of his father’s teaching style and people’s gratitude towards his father’s efforts that inspired him to learn more about yoga.
His father was a renowned yoga teacher in his home town in central India. Although he was in a job, he used to conduct free yoga workshops for the locals quite often. His father was so passionate about helping people through yoga that he used to literally take loans to conduct his workshops. His both parents have been spiritual seekers and have been visiting their Guru’s ashram for decades. His mother follows the path of bhakti yoga.
Deepak’s journey as a yoga student started by assisting his father in the yoga workshops his father used to conduct for the local people in the town when he was merely 12 year old. He became truly inspired with the power of yoga when he saw the value his father was adding to people’s lives through yoga.
Although he had been reading various yogic texts on yoga and spirituality since the age of 15, his journey of real yoga had not begun yet. He went on to become an engineer and worked various jobs just like many others. It was, when he was 24, when his real journey of yoga began. It was when he was in Mumbai railway station waiting for his train with four hours in hand to kill. He decided to go out to look for a movie theatre but ended up buying the most respected book on yoga ever, the Bhagavad Gita. In a non-stop reading spree of the next 26 hours he had finished the 850-page book. The book and its teachings had a profound impact on him and he was not the same person anymore.
While still in his 9 to 5 job he started to study more and more spiritual texts, visiting spiritual ashrams, attending satsangs, practicing more yoga and meditation. At the same time he also started to teach yoga to his colleagues for free to help them. When he was 30 he left his job and went to an ashram for two years to study with his guru. It was in the ashram where it was revealed to him that yoga was his path.
Apart from his father, Deepak has studied with various Gurus like Swami Sivananda, Swami Satyananda, Swami Niranjanananda, Osho, Eknaath Eswaran and J Krishnamurty and has studied hundreds of spiritual texts.
