Dreaming of a lush yoga retreat in the jungle? Normal Heights’ hybrid shop and fitness studio Wild Island Collective has you covered.
The plant store, eco-friendly gift boutique, and yoga studio is passionate about plants — and all that positive green presence brings to their unique sweat sessions.
Decked out with everything from easy-to-care-for succulents for the newbie owner to rare beauties for the seasoned green thumb, the bright and airy oasis is a plant-lover’s dream. And at the back, you’ll find an impressive selection of organic beauty products, cozy home decor, and just about every variety of vase or pot you could want to house your new plant baby.
Although we can’t get enough of all the fresh greenery and plant varieties, the best part about Wild Island Collective is its commitment to movement. Among the fiddle leaf figs, philodendrons, ferns, and palms, the shop hosts daily workouts in its open and peaceful setting.
“Wild” classes focus on mobility and organic movement through yoga sequences, strength training, and mindful breathwork. Then there’s “Unwind,” which is all about relaxation and recovery. Expect to use therapy balls, self-massage techniques, and slow stretching, to mobilize your muscle tissue and restore your body from the inside out.
Feeling fearless? Wild Island Collective also offers monthly “exposure training” workshops to coach you through movement, ice baths, and sauna sessions for an experience that sounds—dare we say—wild.
