A little back story, I was contacted by friend of my brothers from a long, long time ago. So long in fact, that in my mind, this guy is 10 with blonde curtains! Introducing, Kyle Plumbe.
We started chatting, and after not very much persuasion we decided to get OHSOSOM out to Kyle so he could spread the word, and sell the shit out of it. Which he did! and we are so grateful, thank you Kyle.
Kyle has also set up his own online store www.fitmeactive.com which serves all your yoga needs, apparel, block, mats, straps... On top of that, he has built an amazing team of OHSOSOM brand ambassadors, so I thought I would share a little about who they are, and what they have been up to.
Michaela is classically trained ballet dancer, and now resides in Dubai, after having performed all over the world. She combines Pilates, Yoga and HIIT to ensure that she is looking tip top and avoiding injury. In 2013 she qualified as a Body Control Pilates Matwork instructor and a Level Three personal trainer.

Emilia's journey to fitness started with her Dance and Art degree. Through dance, she began to understand the importance of health and fitness, and a balanced diet. With all those boxes ticked, Emilia found that yoga helped with more than just the physical body, but with her mind. Yoga provided a path to discipline, self reflection and awareness, she was taking care of her body in its entirety. Emilia is currently one of the head fitness and yoga instructors at Team DC.
Emilia wears Kristin Leggings $98.
Tania believes yoga takes care of developing and ‘discovering’ ourselves on all levels : physical, emotional, psychological, intellectual and spiritual.
Tania has a deep belief that yoga is an ongoing journey, there is no end, no light at the end of the tunnel as they say, but lots of little lights all long the way. She believes it's important to be a forever student, always listening, always learning, attending all the workshops and classes that she can. Some of the inspiring teachers she has been fortunate enough to learn from are, Simon Borg-Oliver, Tao Porchon-Lynch, Kino MacGregor, Laura Kasperzak (@laurasykora) and Tara Stiles.
