WILD THING began as a beautiful yoga studio in Cape Town founded by Lexi Ryman and Dominique Vieira. The Sanskrit translation of WILD THING or camatkarasana means ‘the ecstatic unfolding of the enraptured heart’ and that is exactly what this space is for us. We have both been practitioners of this practice for over 10 years, and we are consistently reminded of just how powerful the work really is when it comes to navigating this human experience and all that comes with it.
For now, our studio and class offerings remain online as a result of the global situation we all find ourselves in. We have never been more resolute in our belief that the yoga practice is integral in the collective global and personal healing work we all have ahead of use. Our asana practice is informed by the Vinyasa and Yin styles of yoga, but is far more holistic in terms of the movement modalities we weave into class. We believe that yoga is for everybody and every body, and we aim to share the practice in a way that empowers you to feel the practice in your own body and integrate it into your life when you step off of the mat.
A love for yoga, a heart-led pursuit of this ever deepening practice, and the desire to share this incredible, ancient knowledge system is where this all started. WILD THING, in all her forms, is that love and space in a tangible form.
