CLEO (Malaysia) - - BODY & SOUL -

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.
