Certifications

Upon completion of this yoga teacher training, students will receive certificate affiliated with Yoga Alliance. Registration with Yoga Alliance provides a globally recognized credential.

Oceanic Yoga’s 200-hours yoga teacher training is in Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, with a style of teaching that is unique in many ways. From the asana postures to yoga philosophy, the teachers support you and adapt to your individual needs. Safety precautions are essential principles at the school.

To enrich the yoga practice, the teachers have incorporated alignment principles as taught by the world-famous yoga teacher Sri BKS Iyengar. While stressing the fundamentals, you are also encouraged to see and explore yoga in creative ways, so that you can discover your own personal teaching style.

After completion of your yoga teacher training course, you will possess a certificate which is accredited, certified, and recognized world-wide through Yoga Alliance that makes you eligible to teach yoga around the world.

By committing to attend this course, you are not only investing money, time, and energy but you are investing in yourself at a deeper level. Being a good student on the yoga mat is one thing, but outside the center and off the mat you are also expected to show a right level of awareness, loving kindness to all to progress with yoga.

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is considered the traditional Indian yoga style. Many old and contemporary styles are based on Hatha yoga. This style tends to be slower-paced and with varying sequences. The practice of Hatha yoga balances the sun and moon energy within the body and transforms the lower chakra energies to higher levels.

Hatha yoga's depth lies in its teaching of the Ashtanga path or eight-fold way. Every pose in Hatha should be practiced with awareness, respecting the body's limitations.

To enrich your practice, Oceanic Yoga has incorporated alignment principles as taught by the world-famous yoga teacher Sri BKS Iyengar. The emphasis with the Iyengar method is on gradually building awareness and familiarity for the correct alignment of the yoga postures. So, as you can see, Hatha yoga is the foundational practice for all yoga students.

Vinyasa Flow yoga

Vinyasa Flow is a more fast-paced yoga style of movement with synchronized breathing. This style is sometimes also called Flow yoga because of the smooth way that the poses run together, becoming something like a dance. Vinyasa Flow derives from the Ashtanga yoga as taught in the K. Pattabi Jois tradition, but there is more flow in Vinyasa.

In a Vinyasa Flow class, the teacher is free to combine various asanas to create the flow, and sometimes challenging postures are introduced. Vinyasa Flow is fun and upbeat, and has lots of variations possible within it, enabling each teacher to improvize and experiment.

    "When you are asked to write a review about your experience with Oceanic Yoga how can you illustrate your personal experience?! I don’t think it’s easy to use words to describe it in a proper way, at least not for me, but what I know and I can clearly say is what I felt : an intense happy time for my heart my soul and my body. I randomly chose this place a month before my airplane ticket reminded me that I was almost ready to leave to Goa and this ‘randomness’ was the secret for not having any expectation, the best starting point ever. I was there for the seven days yoga package and I enjoyed every single moment of that: moments by myself surrounded by the ocean, the sun, the birds, the dogs (yes different setting from what we are used in our western society!), and moments with other people I was lucky enough to meet in my journey. I do appreciate every person I met: all the Oceanic Yoga teachers, the other guys who were doing their 200 hours program, the waiters and the cleaning staff (the meal was excellent and our huts were daily cleaned) and all the people who still make that place warmer with their smiling eyes. Somehow you become more opened more vulnerable in a way and able to share and be shared. Oceanic staff has been very kind and gentle, available and able to make our staying as comfortable as it was possible. I really need to thank them all from my inside and as we all need to take a break from our society at some point in life, I’d suggest to go there and experience yourself in a new magical way! So thank you very much to all, indeed. Namaste!"

    "My yoga teacher training at Oceanic Yoga was quiet intense, me 58 years old and more than 20 years older than most of the other students. But I am happy that I made it! I learned to go on even when it is difficult. Our teachers really teach from the heart, I liked that a lot. It was very inspiring for my own work as Body Psychotherapist as well.Now I am happy with my certificate!"

    "Der Retreat wurde als Veganer Yoga-Urlaub angepriesen, aber leider war es nur Vegetarisch. Zudem war eine Baustelle auf dem Gelände, an welcher Tag und Nacht gearbeitet wurde. Zusätzlicher Lärm war nachts durch die Partys in der Umgebung bis in die frühen Morgenstunde um 8 Uhr. Ärgerlicherweise musste ich aber - wegen Hochsaison - den doppelten Preis bezahlen. Zusätzlich haben die anderen Gäste des Resorts - welche nichts mit dem Oceanic Yoga Retreat zu tun hatten - das Umfeld und die Atmosphäre gestört. Es wurden 3 Yoga-Lehrer angekündigt, es war in diesen 8 Tagen aber nur 1 Lehrer da. Ärgerlich war auch, dass man nur 2 von 3 angebotenen Einheiten pro Tag nutzen durfte. Die Beschreibung des Oceanic Yoga Retreats auf Ihrer Website stimmt leider nicht mit der Realität überein."

    "I just completed the 200-Hour YTT in Mandrem (they have moved from Anjuna to better facilities). I learned loads, it was very informative, and I feel confident teaching. The training was full-on, without being too intense or with 5:00 am wake up bells. Said better: it wasn't a boot camp and there was flexibility in the schedule.The facilities are very good - single accommodation in concrete huts with bathrooms - no shared drama here. Very healthy and filling veg diet."

    "I had been uncertain which yoga school to try so I visited the school in person before I signed up. As soon as I spoke with Yogi Abhay I knew this was the right place for me. There are many yoga schools to choose from and many things one can do in Goa. What is special about Oceanic Yoga is the people here have created a place where yoga is the focus, and the teachers here are wise, unpretentious and humorous. 99999Over the course of the retreat I made some exciting progress, what I wasn't expecting were the meditation sessions to have such an impact on me. Having previously practiced yoga for years without much consideration for meditation, it was amazing to grow in ways I never considered possible previously. 999999I also loved being in the yoga shala itself; its a beautiful serene space, as well as the food and being close to the beach. The accommodation is simple and nice as well. 999999After completing this retreat and the 200hr YYT training in Koh Samui I can honestly say I would consider going anywhere in the world to practice with Abhay and his team again! I would recommend the retreat to everyone regardless of experience; it was one of the best experiences of my life!"

    "I came to do the 200h YTTC with Oceanic Yoga in November 2014. I did a lot of research on yoga schools before and I am sure I decided right to come here to Abhay and Manisha. They are great teachers with a lot of experience and knowledge and most of all a deep understanding of yoga and meditation. Students get personalized attention (small groups) and the development of each student was amazing over the 4 weeks. Accommodation and food were included and really good. I will come back to continue."

    "I've been visiting Oceanic since I first came to Goa in 2011. This school has been an anchor for me over the three years I've become deeply involved with 'my India'. Abhay and Manisha have been more than teachers to me, I consider them friends, having been invited to their home for gatherings, meals, and conversations. The atmosphere there always has a special quality that brings out the best in me. In the last two years I've also become friends with Vinod, a super teacher. All are sublime! Keeping asana fun and energized and guiding gently with meditation. I spent the winter back in England and felt ready to do my yoga teacher training. I felt strongly this was a huge step to take in my life and was cautious not to move to this path 'till I was absolutely ready. My instincts were right as it turned out to be an intensely transformative experience which called on every cell in my being to be awake and aware.Whilst in England I'd research many schools in India and worldwide, wondering if I would go somewhere new, as I was feeling I'd had so much Goa time over the years and that there might be something else out there for me.The costs were a factor in my decision. It is very hard to compete with the package offered by Oceanic. Though in India it is possible to get similar deals. In the end it was an instinct to go to a place I knew and trusted. The course was fully booked so we were a good sized group of 12. This is where things got interesting. It was March, so the Indian summer was reaching for us. Early morning asana was a paradise as the air was fresh and full of bird song. I'd been concerned I wasn't quite fit enough ( I really do have a lazy streak!) but I had nothing to worry about. My body was willing and able. I had weak knees and was very careful not to hurt them but the leg muscles strengthened the knee. They really are a constellation of incredibly different people and personalities. The atmosphere was supportive and grounded in human truth. The people who were attracted to Oceanic turned out to be so right for my own journey. Manisha is a world class teacher with more wisdom in her little finger than almost anyone I've ever met! The general classes were excellent from all teachers but Manisha gave some special ingredient I will treasure forever. I grew. It hurt at times! My shadows into the light. But the team gathered were sensitive and this turned out to be one of the most powerful experiences of my life. I highly recommend Oceanic Yoga."

    "In Oceanic Yoga's teacher training course, I found a very deep knowledge of yoga, yoga philosophy, asana pratice, anatomy, teaching practice, and detailed explanation. The training was very interesting. As a Pilate and martial arts teacher, my body is very flexible and I came to know yoga is not limited to asanas only but it is vast with its philosophy and meditation. I could understand the real meaning of yoga and I am practicing. I feel happier and I am on the path. "

    "I started the Vinyasa Yoga TTC looking for insight into the anatomy and physical benefits of yoga. As a physiotherapist, I was hoping to bring what I learnt back to my patients for a more holistic and rounded approach to their care and treatment. I certainly attained this insight, but I also learned so much more. I learnt that yoga is not just a physical act, but something that encompasses your whole being. It is a great journey into you. I have gained more awareness of my own body, the power of my own breath, and my mind. It has been an incredible journey with incredible people and I will never forget it. "

    "Abhay, Manisha, and Ilse are absolutely amazing people and teachers. Their patience with the students is amazing. I have learnt so much and I recommend everyone to drop in for an amazing yoga class or a meditation session. It's really inspiring and the energy is mind blowing. There are good vibes, friendly people, and a super relaxed environment. Ten out of ten, if you are in Goa, India Oceanic Yoga and Meditation School must be on your list for places to visit or to drop in for one of their classes. "
