Deepika Meka, born and raised in India, came to the US after her marriage. As a kid, she was always interested in playing sports and participating in competitions. She worked as Sr. Logistics Analyst for a few years and wasn’t satisfied with the work she was doing. She always wanted to be in a career helping people. Her passion for fitness made her become a fitness trainer. Though she was doing something she always loved, she was not happy within.


Deepika Meka discovered yoga 12 years ago when her twin daughters were a few months old. Having been in the throes of intense unabating physical pain for a sustained period after giving birth, Deepika felt helpless and depressed. It was amidst this agony and pain, that she started going to yoga classes to find some respite. Soon thereafter, Deepika could feel some changes both physically and mentally. But just as the healing process had begun, life got in the way and she was unable to remain committed to the practice.


Only after several years of working as a fitness trainer, she decided to do something about it and joined a Yoga Teacher Training Program with an intention to learn more about yoga and help herself. Her practice became consistent and she started to see positive changes, not just physically but also in her mental state. As her practice matured, so did she. As Deepika came more into her own, she transformed into a much happier, patient and content person. Suffice to say, Yoga brought out and continues to bring out the best in her.


Driven to help more women like her, Deepika Meka started to teach Yoga and the other spiritual tools that helped her become the person she is today. As she started to do that, she discovered that the two major hurdles that come in the way of women’s happiness are pain and weight. And Deepika is on a mission to equip struggling women to take these problems head on and reclaim their happiness. Her passion and resolve are validated and amplified as she sees her efforts come to fruition every day. More and more women are hopping onto the Yoga bandwagon, and Deepika continues to guide them to a healthier and happier life.
