What I love about yoga studios is that each one has its own unique personality, just like the people who own them. So when I heard the philosophy behind newly opened Rewild Yoga, I was immediately intrigued to see how a visit would unfold.
Rewild aims to use yoga practice as a way to connect you back to your natural self and after visiting their studio, I would say they are on the right track.
Rewild is the brainchild of local Yogi Steve Kocsis, who has spent the better part of the last 5 years dedicating himself to the practice, including traveling to Thailand to be trained by Baron Baptiste himself, after being inspired by a few influential Baptiste style instructors. Upon taking a class or spending any time chatting with Steve, it’s clear he believes in the power of Yoga for individuals and in communities, and the studio is a product of that.
The effect of Rewild is not just from the classes themselves though. Everything from the materials used in the studio and the curated playlist pumping through the lobby space, to the way they approach teaching the practice is intentional and thoughtfully considered. The space itself beautifully represents their philosophy and values, preparing you to practice before you even step inside the yoga room. Small details like heated floors throughout the entire studio and greenery hanging down from above give off a comforting and warm appeal to the space, drawing you in.
I visited a Power Vinyasa class, the foundational class the studio offers, and it was both challenging and unique. Building on their vinyasa classes, the studio will also offer other distinct class formats like Power Yoga Dance, Silent Power Yoga, and Yoga Nidra.
Rewild will be hosting a grand opening event on January 18th, with a slate of classes open to the public. You can learn more about the studio and book a class on their website, https://www.rewild-yoga.com. Follow along with them on Instagram at @rewildyoga
Rewild Yoga is located at 995 W 5th Ave in Grandview.
