Peace everyone my name is Natt aka Umoja, I am a yoga instructor located in Miami, FL. I manage a wellness brand called Planet Umoja where we create and share content to nourish the mind,body, and soul.
How did you decide to become a yoga teacher?
I started practicing yoga because I have been suffering from scoliosis for a long time and I wanted to become more aware of my body. I first started practicing off of Youtube videos and then started guiding classes in my room with some friends. Overtime I wanted to get deeper into my practice and I built the courage to fly to India to attend a teacher training course and it has completely changed my life for the better.
If you could choose a colour for our next collection what would it be?
If I could choose a color for your next line it would be a pastel orange. Something that reminds me of orange creamsicle.
Hahaha! If I had to choose between yoga and chocolate I would choose yoga. Yoga gives me way more peace of mind and harmony in my life and chocolate doesn't fulfill that so, sorry chocolate, you gotta go.

I teach vinyasa flow, rocket yoga, and gentle yoga styles online from London and Wales. I am a former modern dancer and I came to yoga looking for a way to stay healthy and fit, and I stayed for the warmth of the yoga community.
What keeps you motivated to practice yoga?
My focus right now is teaching. I get on the mat to plan classes, so I suppose my motivation is to make it a good class-- one that gradually builds heat, presents you with at least one playful and interesting challenge, and leaves you feeling better.
The other thing I love to do is yoga-flow to music, I do that a few times a week purely for fun.
How does our recycled material feel on your body during your practice?
Good! Everyone likes a dependable waistband and I love a solid colour fit.
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport so that you had a chance at the gold, what would it be?
Yoga, dance, or some combination thereof? But to me, yoga, like dance, is a form of art and I think making it into a competitive sport would detract from its meaning. So actually-- Words with Friends, or speed-typing, I'd def win a spot on the national team of a small State.
I live in Kent (UK) and have been practising yoga for over 20 years, and teaching since 2008. Teaching yoga is a wonderful hobby and I’m grateful to have a full time job that I enjoy as well.
I started yoga in my early twenties and fell in love straight away, and established a home practice. After deepening my knowledge through a foundation course I signed up for a 500 hour teacher training course with the British Wheel of Yoga. My great yoga friend introduced me to Instagram yoga challenges in 2013 and since then I've made many great yoga friends on the platform and my practice has expanded in ways I didn’t think possible 😀
What is your favourite yoga pose?
This has to be king pigeon pose, I love how many parts of the body are involved and the range of options that are available to people when I teach it.
How did you discover Skimmed Milk?
On Instagram – seeing some of my yoga buddies wearing their outfits, I waited for a sale and pounced 😊
What is something that always makes you laugh?
I love a farce, whether it’s my partner or children or a comedy show coming out with something absurd – before I realise it, my mind takes me into that absurd place and I can’t stop laughing even though everyone else has moved on.
