No matter in which country of the world you were born and raised; the color of your skin, your religious beliefs or your social status, the language you speak, your sexual preference, or your political affiliation; if you are a football fan of any team, or not, they respect you, support you, and you are totally welcome.

The VYTT 300-hour program
Advanced anatomy – 50 hours
Many of the yoga asanas and the Vinyasas or transitions that take you to them or interlace them with each other are born of meditative practice, of fakirism, of gymnastics and other sports, and some more modern ones, come from different styles of dance. The vast majority of them have been developed intuitively or accidentally.
It is not until you stop to see what the human being knows about the biomechanics of the human body today and take into account the scientific developments they have achieved in the last century in subjects such as anatomy, sports medicine and genetics, when they really measure the risks or benefits that the asanas or vinyasas can cause in the short, medium or long term.
You will study each joint and its movement, as well as muscles and tendons involved in those movements both in extension and contraction. You will open the matrix of the human body and after that, you will never see an asana in the same way; so that more than learning asanas or modifications for them, you will have the criteria to create or modify them.
This training is the firm basis, is what establishes the criteria, of all advanced sequencing of asanas of this VYATT300. The creators of this program believe that this module is one of the most important and transcendental of the program. Because the way of seeing the bodies, asanas and the yoga sequences change completely once the biomechanics of the human body is known in detail.
VY advanced asana sequencing – 50 hours
In this training, you will learn to sequence series for practitioners who have a strong and solid asana practice, and who have reached a point where they feel too comfortable in multi-level Vinyasa classes, so they have more trouble to stay in the here and the now. These practitioners need new challenges for their body, so that their mind is present and does not leave with their thoughts.
This training not only prepares you as a teacher to sequence and dictate more advanced series, with complex transitions and strong postures, but also helps you grow in your personal practice. But it is important to stress that although your personal practice is not at the point where you can make complex transitions or strong postures, this training prepares you to be able to teach such transitions safely and without having to show them with your own body, so you can be able to help your students to advance in their practice of asanas and, consequently, in their practice of meditation in movement.
This training is about the physical practice of vinyasa yoga that together with the advanced anatomy training of this VYATT300, become a perfect match to shape a unique, safe and inspiring practice.
VY Vinyasa Flow – 50 hours
You will be learning and mastering five sequencing styles of the VY Vinyasa Flow system, and these encompass the forms of joining the postures that are used in the modern Vinyasa Yoga Flow around the world by the most representative teachers of this style. The system presented by the school in this advanced teacher training gives the RYT the tools to dictate and create their own Vinyasa Flow series in a safe way for all practitioners of this vigorous and dynamic style.
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali – 50 hours
In this training you will translate the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali directly from Sanskrit into English and Spanish. Then you will discuss its context and analyze a possible re-interpretation in your personal life from a contemporary perspective.
Meditation – 50 hours
Sati or mindfulness is the basic human capacity to be in the present and to “remind ourselves” to be in the present, that is, to constantly be returning to the here and now. This training offers you meditation tools and different techniques to achieve this goal, and prepares you to be able to teach them to other practitioners.
VY Soft Yoga – 50 hours
In this training, you will analyze the necessary modifications in the alignment of the postures that are taught in a multilevel yoga practice to be able to adapt to this style of yoga that is very soft, focused on those people who are rehabilitating from some injury, are overweight, have some illness or physical condition that does not allow them to be agitated or to try too hard, are pregnant, or are simply looking for a smooth and calm yoga practice.
You will also study not only the typical injuries and the most common physical conditions, but also how to identify some emotional conditions such as depression and anxiety (among others), in order to use the practice of yoga as a complementary tool to the existing psychological therapy and, in if it does not exist, you can suggest to the student the search for psychological therapy.
Required reading materials
- Yoga Sutras of Patanjali on any of its versions or translations
- Ray Long’s “The Key Muscles of Yoga” and “The Key Poses of Yoga”
- Study and learn the names in Sanskrit of the most common yoga asanas
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.

Daniela De la Garza
Dani describes herself as a very happy and grateful person. She discovered yoga in January of 2013 at the studio where she practiced aerial silks. To Dani, teaching is guiding; throughout the postures and breath, always aware that the practice of yoga is a personal journey. Teaching makes her very happy, but the most important thing about it is that it allows her to remain a student and keep learning from others day by day. Yoga changed her life, and as a teacher what she wants most is to become part of the journey of many people, to sow a seed of love in each person.
After devoting herself entirely to the martial arts for more than 18 years, becoming Black Belt First Dan in Kung Fu, obtaining the 5th place in the World Championship of Traditional Chinese Martial Arts in Shivan in 2010, and thus tasting the world of aggression, ego and arrogance that abounds in this environment, in 2011 Ximena met the world of yoga, where peace, harmony and communion is the language of love that enriches your life day by day. Today Ximena devotes her life to yoga reaching all possible corners, being part of the team of lead trainers in VYTT200 and VYATT300 teacher training.
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.
