wild thing
(camatkarasana)

the ecstatic unfolding of the enraptured heart

about

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.

Live Classes

We have a range of live class offerings throughout the week. These classes are all taught online, via Zoom.
Booking is essential and you can do so by booking in via the schedule button on our website.
Evergreen Content / Pre recorded content

You can practice online with us through our evergreen content portal on our website. You get full access to our ever-growing library of yoga practices, available on demand and in a way that allows you to fit a little bit of yoga into your every day life, even if all you have is 20-ish minutes.

It’s R200 per month. Pause anytime. Meaning you are in complete control over your membership throughout.
YTT

In deep recognition of the inequality that pervades the wellness space, we have diversified our teaching staff, put scholarships and mentorship programs in place to make this experience as accessible as possible. We are so grateful to be working with some of the thought leaders we admire most, who have shaped and inspired our practice and teachings over the years.

This ytt aims to assist in the decolonisation of the practice and the way it is often taught and shared in our modern world. In addition to this, one quarter of each full payment contributes to a sliding scale scholarship for someone to complete their teacher training which means for every four sign ups paid in full, we issue a scholarship. Please note that scholarships will only be for Black, Indigenous, Indian and people of colour. We are so excited and so ready to share with you our ytt offering. Our intention is to hold space for you and to share all the lessons we have learnt with you along the way. We have poured so much of ourselves into this program and we can't wait to keep sharing what we have in store for all of you.

If you are interested, or would like to join our waiting list, please pop us a message and we will get back to you personally!

teacher trainings

200 hour yoga teacher training

The ONE thing we have said since we did our first teacher training and became teachers ourselves is that we wished EVERYONE would do a teacher training, even if they never ever taught an asana class afterwards because of how much you learn that has nothing to do with how to balance on your hands.

We went into our first 200hr TTs thinking we were going to learn how to teach a yoga class, and we did, but by the time the TT was over we had this feeling like teaching a yoga class was actually more of a happy byproduct of some other kind of transformational magic. The magic?

Self awareness.

Connection to yourself.

The healing power of being in community with other humans while learning about one of the most sacred, ancient practices of cultivating wellness in your own life.

What it means to show up in the world as your most authentic self with a voice to match.

In deep recognition of the inequality that pervades the wellness space, we have diversified our teaching staff, and are so grateful to be working with some of the thought leaders we admire most. This ytt aims to decolonise the practice and the way it is often taught and shared in our modern world.

In addition to this, one quarter of each full payment contributes to a sliding scale scholarship for someone to complete their teacher training which means for every four sign ups paid in full, we issue a scholarship.

Everything you need to know before you yoga...

Yay. We’re excited you want to try out our little Wild Thing studio and we can’t wait to meet you. Whether you are brand new to yoga or whether you find yourself bound up in Eagle in your sleep, we want you to enjoy our studio space as much as we do.

What time to arrive

The studio will be ready for you 30 minutes before the class starts. Please make sure that you aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before the class is scheduled to start. We value your time and our classes start promptly on time.

Facilities

As much as we love yoga pants, we also acknowledge that sadly, in this life, they are not always deemed appropriate attire. We have beautiful shower and change-room facilities available for your use. We also have lockers where you can store your valuables, baggage and problems.

Mats and towels

Whether or not you have your own yoga mat we have mats available for rent. If you’re someone who gets a good sweat on just thinking about exercise we also have non-slip yoga towels available for you to rent. If you want to take things to the next level and put a ring on it you can buy both mats and the towels from us too.

Time to get your yoga on

If it’s your first time and you’re worried about what to wear - active-wear is what you’re going for. Make sure it’s something you’re comfortable in and something that you can move in. When you arrive (15 minutes before your class) sign-in at the front desk, wink at your yoga teacher, grab a water and head through to the change room. Leave your shoes, socks, cell phone and worries behind in the change room and head on into the studio to get your zen on.

Can you hear that? It’s your mat calling you…
