    She's also a typical mum with tote bags that are bottomless pits and hold everything from paracetamol to the odd snack!

  • Rotem Zur Ekhart Yoga marketing

    Rotem Zur

    Online & Email Marketing

    Marketing wizard by day, yoga teacher at night. 

    Mailchimp has no secrets for this yogini. Leave it with Rotem to set up campaigns and help spread the EkhartYoga word. Famously funny but a disaster with her email autocorrect ;)

    Rotem is also responsible for bringing kilos of lovely Israeli dates into the office.
