VY Vinyasa Yoga promotes the yogi lifestyle based on the personal, regular, and constant yoga practice; creating a favorable atmosphere for the physical, mental, and spiritual development.
Yoga Teacher Training (2)
Ors is the director of VY Vinyasa Yoga System which consists of a group of affiliated shalas where the model for the teaching of yoga created by Ors in collaboration with Marina Porras and others teachers, is officially followed. He has given thousands of regular classes, certified hundreds of teachers that have now their own yoga studios, and taught classes, workshops and trainings for students all around Mexico. If you allow him to, Ors will teach you with his particular sense of humor. What really matter is the non-violence with your body, the safety in your practice and in the classes.
Marina discovered yoga in August of 2006 and since then, her life changed forever. At the beginning of 2008, she started a yoga teacher training and in April she started teaching multilevel Vinyasa yoga classes in a gym in her hometown city of Monterrey. She has taken 900 hours of yoga teacher training (three programs of 200 hours and one 300-hour advanced yoga teacher training program, all certified by Yoga Alliance) in different styles of yoga from Vinyasa based in Ashtanga, Mandala, Hatha flow, to Rocket and Vinyasa flow. She is registered in Yoga Alliance as an E- RYT 500.
Conejo (Jorge) Castro
Musical producer by profession, Conejo had his first approach to yoga in 2013, after studying martial arts for nearly 20 years. Additionally, he has trained in the practice of meditation, taking courses and retreats of various contemplative techniques, such as Vipassana and Shamata, from the hands of teachers from different parts of the world. Conejo is the Dharma Rabbit coordinator, a school belonging to the VY Vinyasa Yoga Sister Schools System, located in the city of León, Guanajuato.
Susana De los Santos
Susana works as a general practitioner and acupuncturist graduated from the Faculty of Medicine of Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León. After spending some complicated years, Susana was in search of meaning and peace. Having heard a stranger talk about his yoga practice, she decided to experience it for herself. That was how she reached her first shala in 2013.

"In-Depth Program in the Jungle"
I liked how intensive the curriculum was. Where other programs will claim to fit 300 hours in 3 weeks, VY Vinyasa takes the Yoga Alliance standards seriously and ensures that you receive all hours (and more!) and that each lesson is in-depth and that a wide range of knowledge is covered. You can tell that each instructor is highly knowledgeable in their field and that they have a passion for their subject (anatomy, philosophy, meditation, etc.) that they want to share with the students. More than that, they believe in a yogic lifestyle that encompasses all aspects of life and not just the showy asanas like handstands, though of course they will teach you those as well.
The support staff were also above and beyond. Special thanks to Haru who provided us with delicious meals every day for 6 weeks. She always accommodated any special dietary requirements and learned all of our preferences quickly. The rest of the staff was also beyond helpful and addressed any concerns we had quickly and efficiently.
The shala was beautiful and peaceful and a wonderful place to practice and learn. In general, it was beautiful to live together with nature. The love that has gone into creating the retreat space can be seen everywhere.

This course is very scientifically based, researched and supported. A huge amount of work has been done to provide the most relevant, up to date and detailed information to build a strong and deep yoga practice and teaching base. all the instructors have a wealth of knowledge and a passion for what they do and it shows in the great quality of the course. The course dives deep into anatomy, class structure and design as well as the non asana based principles of yoga including meditation training. The instructors are wonderful and Santosha is a great way to get in touch with nature. To be part of the first group there was a good experience and i think many things were learned for all parties. Given also that this was in the middle of COVID a huge effort was made and it was greatly appreciated.

"Above and Beyond"
First of all, I’d like to share my appreciation to Ors and Marina for the attention they gave to my development as a yogi and as a human being. Spending 3 weeks in the jungle I was expecting a lot of time to focus on elevating my practice, but it was invaluable having two wonderful teachers who cared whole heartedly about me not only becoming the best yoga teacher I can be, but also becoming the best person I can be. These two teachers have complete confidence in their system, coming from years of study, dedication and practice. They don’t preach anything (besides safety) and give their students space to define yoga for themselves. The food was delicious and made with love. The location was a dream. I am lucky to have stumbled onto VY Vinyasa Yoga and into the lives of my new good friends, Ors and Marina. Yoga needs more people like them.

"More than I expected"
Everything! From the first moment I met Marina and Ors I knew they're amazing, but still, every day they surprised me even more. I am so thankful to have made the VYTT with them! They know so much and we learned a lot from them, but at the same time they are humble. They created a very friendly, lovely environment for us, a space where we could feel safe, loved, respected. They not only took care of our minds, but also of our hearts. Always listening to us, encouraging us, never too tired of BEING THERE. Always having a surprise activity(educating/fun), I could never be bored. They really put so much heart in this training and didn't just do it to get it done. Besides being so smart, they are also the goofiest(especially Ors). They were never scared to let the inner child show up, they had fun hand in hand with us, it felt like they're one of us!
I don't know what future holds, but I would love to go back and do the 300h TT with them.
My yogi fellows have been also amazing, supportive, inspiring, hilarious:)). They're all my yogi family now. I feel more inspired than ever, I feel like I've grown a lot during the training. Forever grateful!
The food was amazing, I was the only vegan but there was always a great variety for me. The cook, the sweetest I've ever seen, always there to help and always, always smiling. The accomodation was great, very nice and clean and the place was as described. I can not put into words how thankful I am for everything about this experience.
