Retreats * Bootcamps * Thai Yoga Massage * Public Fitness & Yoga Classes
Ocean Bloom is a true inspiration for people to pursue their destiny and live their dream life! As a fellow yoga instructor, I had met Ocean at some yoga festivals back home in Canada. She was a super cool yogi, so I figured I would come to say hello while backpacking around Asia. My initial intention was to swing by and hang out for a couple days before continuing on. I fully immersed myself in her program - each day with Ocean started with an inspiring yoga practice, followed by an empowering bodyfit session - there is no better way to start the day!
In addition to our regular morning programs, she also led us through yoga classes on the beach for sunrise and at the top of mountains for sunset - breathtaking! We ran up mountains to the big Buddha, and worked out right on the beach and in the ocean - this is truly the funnest way to get fit :) I have never felt better in my life! Two days quickly turned into two weeks and I really didn't want to leave.
When it comes to yoga & fitness, there is no question that Ocean is a master - but what stood out the most was her passion and dedication to her students. She really wants to see us succeed and live our dream lives as well. Ocean is now a great friend and I really look forward to visiting her again.
If you are ready to truly transform your mind, body & life - come to Phuket, Thailand and spend time with Ocean - it will change your life!
I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to learn Yoga with you at your amazing morning classes whilst I trained at Tiger. I was Yoga virgin and am now totally hooked on what I was able to accomplish in such a short time. I learnt so much during the 3 weeks, not only the yoga moves, but to "let it go" & most importantly.... "to set the intention"
During my time at Tiger, I discovered that we're all there trying to get our lives in order, we were all there together because of something from our past that we are trying to put right, or conquer.
My story is, I am a breast cancer survivor I was diagnosed at 34 with Stage 2 grade 3-breast cancer. I went through the 8mths of full treatment, chemo, radiation losing my hair, coming to terms with what I was left with. I am now 37. But wait, there's more, throughout this time I was in an extremely abusive relationship, which I believe caused the cancer (there is no history of BC in my family, I was the first)...the emotional turmoil had to go somewhere right? So it transformed into the cancer in my breast. The day before I flew out to train at Tiger it was confirmed that I was 3yrs cancer free. All I can say is, through your classes, It was enough for me to open the door and let it all go. I have now set the intention to live an EXTRAORDINARY life.
I have returned to Australia and have enrolled in a 2yr Diploma of Counseling course, I have also been accepted as a volunteer at the "look good feel better workshops" that help the cancers patients to feel normal during their journeys. I'm teaching the ladies about wigs and how to wear their scarves and basically how to look FABULOUS!!!!
What I'm trying to say is that by setting the intention to change my life, my life experience will help others. What more experience can one get then by what life teaches me....lol....before I would ask myself, why me? Now I say, "Why not me".
Thank you for touching our lives in the way that you do and for showing us how to start the healing process, and for setting the intention!
I look forward to purchasing your Yoga DVD (there I set the intention for you)...lol..
All the best
I could never relax, never ! I was always tired , everyday and I didn’t know why. I had constant anxiety everyday at work such as panic attacks. I was not happy. What was wrong with me? I would ask myself over and over daily. I lost motivation to train and eat properly.
Often in life we lead lives of quiet desperation, smiling putting on a brave face for those around us, soldiering on regardless. In my life I have experienced sadness much heartache, traumatic incidences I have never mentioned to anyone ever. I carried these burdens with me everywhere, weighed down with tension and stress. This became the norm year after year. I found myself distracting myself anyway I could with beer, whiskey, partying, watching television, food ect. Then I met Ocean.
Ocean is one of the nicest women I have ever met. After a chance conversation, I booked my Thai Yoga massage with Ocean. I booked four sessions. I wish I had more sessions now thinking back. It was a leap of faith. I never expected anything different than a normal Thai massage which had always failed to relax me.
Ocean made me feel at totally at ease and safe. I lay on the mat breathing as instructed the massage begins. In time my thoughts drifted until the emotional heartaches of my past begin to come up. I would never normally face them or think about these traumatic experiences. Huge emotions welled in me. I fully embraced them! Sometimes harsh and painful experiences welled up. Ocean’s Thai massage technique helped me remove these emotions by relaxing and breathing. Energy began flowing through my body. Emotions I had never felt before, subtle movements happened on their own, a release happened, my body was vibrating with a gentle hum.
When the Thai massage was over it was like I had been dreaming until Ocean gently woke me up. I was exhausted. Ocean was always there making me feel comfortable and safe. The few hours after the massage I would recover my mind going from pleasure to pain on its own but eventually settling down. Then I began to feel so relaxed in my life. What was this? Thisis the most relaxed I had ever been before. I knew then this was real that I was resolving all of my emotional baggage stored in the tissues.
I had only three more sessions with Ocean. Each time I felt I was going a little deeper clearing a little more of the emotional tension locked in my body. Emotional baggage was being cleared out. I know I have more emotional tension to release. I realized my journey has really only just begun.Ocean gave me great advice and great words of wisdom and the massages help before I left for home and I have to thank you Ocean.
At home, in the UK, I now find myself able too relax. My anxiety from work is gone. I feel that I have faced the heartaches of my past andhave let them go and I have moved forward! My energy has improved. It feels like was all locked up inside my body leaving my full of tension before I started Ocean’s Thai massages.
Ocean I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me. I cannot repay you. You are beautiful in everyway and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Yoga, Bodyfit and Life Training with Ocean Bloom
A better understanding of Yoga....
There must’ve been a reason I woke up at 6.30am everyday to start my day off in Yoga with Ocean, she makes it enjoyable and not necessarily easy physically, because it honestly made you sweat and fall over, but easy to follow, so that each class always had a flow to it. Clearly stating each movement as we went, and even explaining what the movement or position was about. There is nothing better than an instructor that not only talks the talk, but walks the walk when it comes to a practice like Yoga, she can surely do some crazy positions, twist her body like a pretzel, and has amazing balance skills. I however am proud I done my first bridge two weeks ago, a position that I haven’t been able to do since I was about 8yrs old and perfecting other Yoga positions I wasn’t quite doing right. I especially enjoyed Big Buddha Sunset Yoga, with not only the awesome view, but special little workshop moments at the beginning of practice, learning more about self awareness and what yoga offers you. I probably for a while won’t find yoga the same without her instructing... A great start to the day for sure.
A new found Passion for BodyFit
I remember being very intimidated by the BodyFit Classes, watching from the sidelines as I saw trainees panting, sweating, red faced and gasping for water and air at the end of a round or a class. I said to myself I’m not doing that! Now I wish I had started earlier! 6 weeks ago I started doing bodyfit, and couldn’t get enough of especially the Monday, Wednesday, Friday sessions. They are fast paced, full of energy, and through the amount of people that sometimes attend these classes, Ocean handles the pressure pretty well by helping others, pushing the limits, motivating people, and even getting in there herself to demonstrate to those finding it hard to get the movements right. As much as I never took to Big Buddha or Beach Body Fit ,I find they are great for those who have definitely come to get fitter than fit... for those wanting to lose weight fast, and for those testing their agility, speed and endurance. Something I will look at doing soon.
Ocean does not only teach these classes, but she also helps others on a personal level, giving them spiritual, nutritional, emotional guidance. Motivating and inspiring you to be a better you, and to take care of yourself better, whether it be watching what you eat or drink, in my case Coca Cola, to even encouraging you to get a pedicure and a manicure even when you never liked getting them before! Though she encourages fitness, she also encourages rest, and giving yourself personal time.
I know she puts alot of work and preparation into each class she teaches. And that she has worked very hard to get to where she is at...
Thank you Ocean for your awesome classes, they have helped me immensely, and for the extra information on health and exercise to help me carry on with looking after myself and my body better. You have also given me inspiration to help others with their weight loss etc in the near future.

I signed up for 4 weeks at Tiger Muay Camp with little expectations but with an abundance of energy. My first class was yoga with Ocean Bloom and I was blown away… but more importantly instantly hooked!
From the first moment I stepped onto the mats I knew I was beginning a very special journey. I felt a sense of belonging and rich in positive energy and this is all before Ocean began her inspirational teachings.
I was what you would call a yoyo yoga student. I had never really committed to a class in the past, but this all changed after my first session where I found my love for Power Yoga. This class emphasized the development of physical flexibility while nurturing the desire for self discipline in a fun environment.
Ocean’s years of experience is clearly present with every class being unique, enjoyable and achievable no matter which level of fitness you are. Ocean’s classes are different, but at the end of each one, I felt like I had explored a physical and mental territory that I never would have gotten to unless I was in that space for that session.
From the very start of this journey, I have felt like Ocean was a gift. I feel so blessed to have her in my life as my teacher and friend.
Thank you Ocean x
I thoroughly enjoyed training with you and I was very impressed by your explosive energy, disciplined attitude, techniques and motivation.
Compliments to you Ocean, it was such a pleasure meeting you.
Though I know motivation must come from me, you were the only person who managed to keep me focused when I most needed it. I miss you and your sunny personality
Sending you Serenity and Love
Thanks for all the tips and exercises which I will put to great use!! So stoked meeting you! You're so motivational & such an inspiration.
Thank you my dear for all you share. Working with you has helped me immeasurably. You are a healer in the truest sense and are helping me to regain my balance and connection with my body in ways that I could never do on my own. There are no words to describe my gratitude and respect for you and what you do.
Thank you for all the great energy and positivity you gave me, from the very first minute I walked in to that gym. You have a wonderful gift and are as beautiful inside as out. Your inspirational dialogue was half my training. Listening to you helped me quit running my old tapes at least for an hour.
Thank you for the great sessions, for all the training and non-stop support while I was in Thailand.
I love the energy we all had doing your group training together. Being on the right track made it so easy because we were all there supporting each other to get better in what ever we were trying to achieve!
