Nurul Jamaludin and Dayangku Balqis Sharbanu’s brainchild, Wild Warrior is your one-stop shop for all things yoga.
Q How did Wild Warrior come about? We weren’t fulfilled with our jobs anymore, so we started a new venture. Wild Warrior is the online store that reflects our passion for art and travel. At the same time, it’s a way to spread our love and appreciation for fitness with our community. Come Reza Yoga and Yogini Republic are the two apparel brands currently under Wild Warrior. Q What inspires the designs of your apparel and how are they different? Inspiration comes mostly from our time in South America and the culture in Borneo. But nice designs aren’t our only priority. Each item is thoughtfully crafted to suit the Malaysian lifestyle, and to satisfy a yogi’s needs. Our team in Rio, Brazil creates a special material unlike any other brand there is. Q You’re very involved in charity work. Tell us more about that. Helping others find their inner peace and acceptance through yoga is a big part of our brand. Our charity work dates back to when we were travelling. There’s also Foundation Come Reza Yoga, which is a small factory in Cucuta, Colombia. This foundation creates jobs for single mothers by employing them to produce Come Reza Yoga apparel. In Malaysia, we work closely with Sarawak Society for the Deaf and a few other local organisations.
