VY Lead Trainers


ORS (Hernán) Gutiérrez, E-RYT 500 YACEP
VYTT200 & VYTT300 Lead Trainer and
VY General Director

Ors is the General Director of VY Vinyasa Yoga, a school dedicated to the formation of yoga teachers, and the continued education and development of yoga teachers. VY Vinyasa Yoga has a group of teachers, VY Lead Trainers, who are dedicated to follow the model for the teaching of yoga created by Ors in collaboration with his wife Marina Porras, not only for the 200 hour and 300 hour Teacher Training programs, but also in their personal practice and in the classes they teach on a daily basis.

Ors has been around the world (literally): from Baja California to Thailand looking for knowledge and experiences that can get him closer to the understanding of the asana techniques and the spiritual development.  He has had the privilege of studying with a lot of different teachers of Vinyasa as well as other different styles of yoga in master classes, workshops, teacher training programs, and advanced teacher trainings from classic styles like Iyengar or Ashtanga with traditional alignment, to modern styles like the series of Rocket 1, 2, and 3 and Acro Yoga.

He has taught thousands and thousands of regular classes, has certified hundreds of teachers that now have their own yoga studios, and has 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, that an asana is not the most important thing, and what really matters is the non-violence with your body, the safety in your practice and in the classes that you will teach after this training, and the lifestyle and philosophy that connect to this discipline to which he dedicates his entire life.

Ors describes himself as a regular guy that gives the best of himself by collaborating with others to make the world a happier place by giving away peace, love, and freedom in every single moment.

Marina Porras, E-RYT 500 YACEP
VYTT200 & VYTT300 Lead Trainer and
VY Administrative Director

Marina discovered yoga in August of 2006 and since then, her life changed forever. She graduated as Chemical Engineer and has an MBA, and even though she was very successful in her professional career, she started practicing yoga because she felt lost, frustrated, and disappointed with herself and life. In her first yoga class, in the very moment savasana started, everything changed: yoga acted upon her and imprinted on her the security, joy, and the strength that she needed to keep on going. At the beginning she focused on her daily asana practice but eventually, she started to feel the need to know more about the yoga philosophy and lifestyle; therefore, she began attending to yoga workshops, and it was then when she felt the need to absorb herself into the yoga lifestyle and at the same time, prepare herself to be able to share it safely and responsibly with everyone around her. In early 2008 she started a yoga teacher training and in April of 2008, she began teaching multilevel vinyasa yoga classes in a gym in her hometown city of Monterrey, N.L. 

At the beginning, teaching yoga classes was just a hobby, a complement to her professional career, but soon enough teaching yoga transformed in a necessity for her, and in February 2009 she quit her job as Sales Manager in a well known American company, and became part of VY Vinyasa Yoga as the Administrative Director and head teacher of regular yoga classes. Side by side with her husband Ors, she is now dedicated to run modular RYS 200 and RYS 300 programs, CE workshops and CE master classes all over the country, and intensive RYS 200 and RYS 300 programs, CE workshops and CE master classes at VY Vinyasa Yoga Retreats in Punta Xen, Campeche.

Marina has continued studying and updating her yoga skills; she has completed more than 1,000 hours of yoga training certified by Yoga Alliance in different styles of yoga from Vinyasa based in Ashtanga, Mandala and Hatha Flow, to The Rocket and Vinyasa Flow. She is registered in Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 500, which means that she has at least 2,000 hours of experience as a yoga teacher, and a YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continued Education Provider). She has studied with well know international teachers such as David Williams, David Swenson, Dharma Mittra, Baptise Marceau, and Kino McGregor. From the moment she obtained her registry as RYT 200 in 2009, she has devoted her life to the formation of hundreds of yoga teachers, first as an Assistant Teacher, and later as a Lead Trainer for VY Vinyasa Yoga’s RYS 200 and RYS 300 programs.

Marina is a passionate soul of life, convinced that yoga acts almost magically upon all people. She is a yoga teacher that cares for her students and therefore, gives away her heart and her soul in every class. Consequently, she has decided to share her life and expand yoga so she can be able to teach her students to let themselves be wrapped in the magic of yoga and to enjoy by inhaling in the here and the now. In her classes you will find the perfect balance between the physical and vigorous work, and the profound meditation in motion, and if you allow her, she will guide you so you can learn how to listen the limits of your body, take you sight into your inner self, and discover that asanas are not important and what really matters is your intention, what you learn about yourself while you practice, and how you apply it to your daily life.

Felicia Lubertazzi, RYT 500 E-RYT 200 YACEP
VYTT200 & VYTT300 Assistant Teacher and Buddhi Yoga CE 100 hour Lead Trainer 

Felicia is Assistant Teacher for the VY Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Programs.  She is a Vinyasa ERYT 200, RYT500 certified yoga instructor, with additional certifications in Yin Yoga, Kundalini, Buddhi & BUTI Yoga. 

Her journey into the yoga world began untraditionally.  She attended her first Buddhi class in 2012 on the Big Island of Hawaii, the birthplace of Buddhi.  After practicing for a few years under the founder of the discipline, she became certified as a Buddhi instructor in 2016.  Since becoming certified, she has taught around the world – including China, Singapore, Romania, Germany, Malta, Cyprus, Mexico, and the USA.

Her yoga interests continued into the traditional world of Vinyasa, which she has been practicing for years.  She became certified as a vinyasa teacher first as an RYT 200 with BUTI Yoga, and has been teaching vinyasa asana classes since 2018.  

She found her way to the Mexican jungles of Tulum when she decided to continue her education and train to become an RYT 500 with VY Vinyasa Yoga in 2021.  VY Vinyasa Yoga opened her up to a new world of scientific approach to asanas, which has greatly improved both her practice and teaching style.  She quickly became part of the VY Vinyasa Yoga family and stayed on in the jungle to assist at subsequent trainings. 

Felicia seeks to embody the qualities of a yogi in all that she does, and loves sharing the practice with anyone who is interested.
