Kim Mortimer provides private yoga classes at rental villas and Grace Bay hotel locations on Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands through Amphibious Adventure's Island Synergy program. The real gift of yoga that Kim emphasizes is that true yoga is not what happens on the mat but what happens off the mat. Kim Mortimer's classes embody that yoga is about letting go of the ego, meeting yourself on the mat wherever you are on any given day, being true in that moment, with your breath and in your essence. Incorporating both the physical and spiritual aspects of the practice of yoga. Kim's classes integrate dynamic vinyasa flow asana with the application of precise alignment and an inner journey of self-awareness and mindfulness. She will challenge you and have you digging deep, while the whole time smiling and bringing the humility of a real person’s humor to her yoga classes as well. Kim Mortimer enjoys challenging her students, both physically and mentally helping you advance your yoga practice by listening and not demanding. Kim's vinyasa based yoga classes are playful and energetic; set to music or the sound of the waves, she will also help you surrender in one of her yin yoga classes.

Anyone on the journey to health and well-being, from the beginner to the more experienced yoga student will leave any of Kim Mortimer's yoga classes feeling completely transformed and wide awake! There will always be modifications, so you can work at the level best suited for you.

YIN YOGA  
Relaxing, regenerative, meditative, and supportive held poses leave you feeling nourished and well-rested. Allowing you to work on the deeper “yin” tissues of your ligaments, joints, deep fascia networks, and even your bones. Yin yoga is the perfect complement to most “yang” yoga practices as well as most athletic disciplines. This class is about achieving optimal flexibility, health, and vitality. You will leave feeling grounded and very deeply relaxed.  

RELEASE, RELEASE, RELEASE 
Our bodies are swathed from head to toe in fascia, layers of connective tissue that surround every muscle, bone, nerve, and organ in the body. In this class, we will open and release the connective tissue (fascia) in the body in a direct way utilizing props such as tennis balls and blocks in commonly congested areas on the body also known as a trigger point. Complimenting this with yin and restorative yoga poses, which are also beneficial for fascia release. Discover a new way of healing; explore the potential to release and let go into a softer and suppler body and mind.
