Kristina Shultsayte

Personally I prefer to move through a sweaty, physically and mentally challenging practice to engage my sympathetic nervous system and then relax and restore by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system in shavasana or meditation. However, the best yoga practice is your yoga practice! Always listen to your own body and modify it for yourself. I am here to help your personal yoga journey.

Miranda Morris

Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, Miranda moved to Cayman in January 2020, fulfilling her lifelong dream of becoming a fitness professional somewhere tropical.

Having discovered the importance of health/ wellness in her early teens, Miranda’s life became enriched with the practice of yoga. Quickly into her journey, she was awakened to the mental and emotional benefits of yoga, beyond the physical practice.

Having begun her teaching career heavily focused on power yoga, she has learned the beauty in slowing down. While holding an intense pose a little longer than you would like, you will hear her say “find comfort within the discomfort.” Trusting that you can take this theme off of the mat and apply it to your everyday life.

Miranda’s personal practice is mostly a restorative one and the more props, the better!

When she is not on the mat, you can find Miranda sitting in the sunshine, drinking green juice, and scrolling Pinterest. If there is a stray paddle board nearby, chances are Miranda will find a way to get it in the water and practice her favorite yogi shapes. Despite her daytime habits of being in the bright sun, once inside she enjoys a quiet, clean and candle lit home.

Powered by plants, Miranda loves sharing with her friends/ family delicious vegan meals that she whips up daily!

Claudia Stewart

Claudia started her journey to yoga seven years ago, as recommended by her chiropractor due to lower back pain complications. In search of her ideal practice, she became inspired by Baptiste Power Yoga. It was quite challenging in the beginning but she never gave up. She started practicing daily under her teacher Mark Jansen who inspired her to LEVEL UP HER PERSONAL PRACTICE. It didn’t take her long to realize yoga was something that would be a part of her life in a big way. It was then that she decided I wanted to become a Baptiste Teacher. In 2016, Claudia participated in courses with Baron Baptiste in Arizona and the Art of Assisting in Boston in 2018.

Claudia stepped on her mat as a Yoga Teacher in 2018. She loves where the path and experience lead her. She is grateful to the amazing yogis from our community in Grand Cayman and visitors from around the globe that she has shared breath with.

Claudia is passionate about nature. She loves animals; mostly birds. She owns a 24 year old umbrella cockatoo which goes by the name of Cheetah. Claudia spends her free time cooking, reading, and of course, practicing yoga.

Claudia was born in Nicaragua and moved to Grand Cayman 15 years ago. She cherishes the time she spends at home with her family and on her days off she enjoys going to the beach early in morning to catch the morning SUN with coffee in hand and quick, cleansing dip in the ocean.

Claudia’s classes are powerful, playful, and loaded with a lots of fun.

Join her on the mat to stretch, sweat and laugh. When class is completed you will leave the studio with a big smile on your face waiting for the next session!


Mark Jansen

Why Yoga?

When I first asked myself that question in the 90s the answer was that I wanted to rehab from injuries I received participating in the sport of triathlon . The more I practiced I discovered that yoga made me happy. I appreciated things more. I appreciated those around me more. I discovered that everything you need to be happy, is right inside of you already. You just need to allow yourself to see it, to feel it, to experience it. Yoga allows that to happen. Yoga enables that to happen. Becoming a yoga teacher has enabled me to share that experience with others. My teacher training has been with Baron Baptiste, founder of the Baptiste Institute. I have also completed trainings with Cameron Shayne of Budokon Yoga. I currently live in East End, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands where I am permitted to share space with three cats - as long as I feed them. They watch me kiteboard.

Please join me in practice where we can explore some happiness!

Em Whitney

My goals are to share with others how life changing therapeutic yoga, gentle movement and daily awareness can be.  I believe that everyone can benefit from practicing authentic movement and awareness. Through my gentle and light-hearted approach, my students can find more ease, better alignment and flow, not only in their bodies, but in heart, mind and soul; both on and off the mat. I strive to facilitate self-healing and empowerment to each and every student by bringing my knowledge and personal experiences into every practice. Movement has the power to heal everything. The key is to find the fire within your movement.Do not hesitate to reach out should you need anything further.

Linsey Gammel

Linsey was introduced to yoga as a teen and it has developed into a lifelong practice and passion. Her teaching journey began 10 years ago when she went to India to study traditional hatha and meditation, and she has since expanded into the modalities of vinyasa, yin, and restorative. She is a self-proclaimed lover of learning and enjoys finding a common ground between science and spirituality, bringing fresh new perspective into her teaching. Off the mat, she loves gardening, food and wine, reading a great book, and traveling the world. Linsey has recently made a big career change, choosing to follow her heart and passion by teaching yoga full time, and is so excited to share the journey with the One Heart family!

Nicole Hoffman

Nicole initially came to yoga with a dance and gymnastics background over 10 years ago and fell in love with the challenge of learning new asanas. After becoming more immersed in yoga, she began to delve deeper into the breath and meditative practices involved. Nicole received her 200hr teaching certification in 2020 and a subsequent yin yoga certification in 2022. Nicole's classes have a heavy focus on experiencing your own body and moving in ways that serve you and your specific anatomy. Nicole is also a classically trained singer with a deep love for sound healing and you can look forward to being serenaded in savasana whenever Nicole teaches.

Rebecca Done

Rebecca was a professional nomad and international flight attendant for 25 years. She has traveled the world and found yoga as a way to manage stress, travel fatigue and heal her body.
Rebecca feel deeply into her yoga practice six years ago when she arrived in Grand Cayman. She quickly fell in love with the practice and in August of 2022 became a Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher after taking a pilgrimage to Rishikesh, India where she received her RYT-200.
During her training Rebecca explored the practices of Ashtanga, Hatha, Restorative, and Yin lineages. While in India, she also received a designation as prenatal, postnatal & postpartum yoga teacher.
Although her personal practice is rather powerful, she feels more at home as a teacher by offering more restorative practices. She has a soft and nurturing nature and is a body positive and trauma-conscious teacher.
As a certified Pilates teacher as well, you can expect Rebecca’s classes to be the perfect infusion of active and passive. She strives to create a safe space, honouring that her students are their own best teachers.
When Rebecca is not teaching yoga you can find her in the kitchen creating delectable meals, on her paddle board, in her garden nurturing her numerous plants and spending time with her rescue cats, Jade and Shadow.

Rebecca feels as if she has found her forever yoga family at One Heart and is honoured to share this practice, that she describes as life changing, here in the Cayman Islands.
