Oceanic Yoga Teachers Team
Om Sarvam Shivarpanam.
Naren is a mechanical engineering graduate and has had stints in corporate and startups. Taking a break from his start-up he started to travel across the country with the
intention to experience whatever was on offer, many times it was unconscious with just a need for moving. Being close to Nature and varying landscapes along with the
practice of Yoga were the source of building awareness of existence. It was enough to give the feeling of contentment temporarily. These travels instigated an exploration of the
scriptures, primarily the Upanishads. Also, he was drawn into a childhood interest of writing the experiences in the form of narratives.
He narrates – “In one of my travels, on a full moon night, I sat on the hills of Tiruvannamalai, soaked in the vision of the silhouette of the grand temple and the hills accompanied
by a cool breeze. The plan was to sit and remove all thoughts from the mind and sit simply with no other agenda. I even had a flask of tea and couple of fruits in case I got hungry or weary.
At first so many things crowded my thoughts – from the most pleasant to horrific things. It was a fight. I don’t know the quantifier of time but eventually the sun shone strongly bringing back the senses to function. The fruits and tea were untouched. I felt energized.
On my way back a holy man sitting on the pathway described to me about the energy of Arunachala and gave me a copy of Naan Yaar (Who am I) questions dealt by Sri Ramana Maharshi on self enquiry” Since that experience, Naren says he
has been a Yoga Sadhaka working on various spiritual practices (layers and dimensions of existence – like Prana, Bhutas, Chakras, Kundalini, Consciousness and the likes).
Girish Ji is the most humble and friendly person one can come across. He graduated in Computer science and worked at Infosys (A leading Indian I.T. organization) for around 3 years but he left every last bit of it as he continued looking for truth. He practised Sadhna at many spots in South India, Manali, Nepal and various other places. The Vipassana meditation in Pune brought a remarkable change in his life. The subjects like Anatomy and Physiology constantly inspired him for additional research. He is a Doctorate in Naturopathy and Yoga. He has been showing Physiology and Anatomy at Oceanic Yoga and at numerous Yoga schools in Rishikesh for more than 5 years.

Hari Krishan Ji
He had envisioned of opening up of a yoga school that presents yoga in its true essence combined with the traditional detoxification science of Naturopathy. A large part of Hari Ji’s childhood was spent in serving and taking care of hundreds of sages and sadhus. Being a national level player in his youth, yoga was an essential part of his routine. However, he realized that in present times, the bodies of most people are full of emotional and other kinds of garbage, which hinders one’s growth. This led him to develop “Emotional Blockage” treatments as well as using Naturopathy detoxification.

A few words from Kris Ji…
Life is a pilgrimage and a longing to experience the inner. Yoga and Meditation are the paths to this beautiful journey.
I had the blessing and the opportunity to live with a man of Yoga and Meditation for many decades (In fact from the age when I was 17) and the journey still continues.
Oceanic Yoga is the door and opportunity to experience and share this inner pilgrimage where Pilgrimage meets Goal “Pilgrimage itself is the Goal”.
In Hindi we say
“Yatra Hi Manzil Hai”.
You are all invited and welcome
