Instructors

Cristina Felici
Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)
Cristina Felici has been pursuing her growth path in the yoga practice since 2005. Her experience includes Anusara yoga, Ashtanga yoga, and MogaDao yoga. In 2016, after moving to Cambridge, she obtained a yoga teacher diploma, Yoga Alliance Registered RYT 200, that allows her to offer yoga lessons both in English and Italian. Her yoga, Hatha yoga, offers lessons that follow fluid rhythms and Vinyasa yoga practice sequences but also static sessions where the great attention is given to the alignment of the asanas.
Marina Montenegro
Camyoga Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)
Marina began attending Hatha yoga classes in 1993 in Italy. Once in Cambridge, she was introduced to Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga in 2009. She developed a regular personal practice and deepened her knowledge. Deeply convinced of the benefits that yoga brings to the body and mind, she wanted to share her love for the ancient discipline as a teacher and gained the Camyoga teaching diploma in 2015/2016 (Yoga Alliance RYT 200). Her classes follow the rhythm of the body, creating a practice that is deep and dynamic where the movement unites with breath, like an interconnecting thread between the mind and body.
