Moving towards health

Canadian-born Lindsay Mensen grew up in the Turks and Caicos Islands, experiencing a close connection with nature and becoming interested in yoga, health and nutrition through her dad, an entrepreneur who founded Ambergris Cay, a private island. Lindsay, along with her sister, Laura, set up a boutique yoga studio and vegetarian café in their adopted Caribbean home, before launching KYN – a holistic lifestyle company. Long-standing connection with Aman dates back to her launching the brand’s first Nature Discovery Center at Amanyara in Providenciales. Now, with more than 15 years of health and wellness expertise, she looks forward to continuing this relationship at Amanera on the shores of Playa Grande.
