Hi Rebels!
Happy New Decade! If you’ve been following our journey, welcome back! We’re glad to see you again. If you’re new to the Rebel community, hi there! We’re happy that you’re here and joining in on our exciting journey. We would like to start by saying, thank you! Our Chestnut Hill boutique, studio, and canteen have been thriving all thanks to YOU. Your belief in us and our mission has allowed us to manifest new opportunities and create something beyond what we have ever expected. We are in the process of creating a community for the Rebel brand itself – to bring all the pieces together and build something bigger than retail, bigger than yoga, bigger than our biggest wheel of vegan cheese. We are beyond grateful for all of your support and love and we can’t wait to share with you our plans for 2020 and beyond!

POP UP IN ARDMORE → We are expanding! If you haven’t heard, we swiped up some prime real-estate for a new Rebel pop-up shop in the heart of Suburban Square. The Ardmore community is ever-growing, shifting, and developing. With new buildings popping up (it seems almost daily), new storefronts, restaurants, and friendly faces – we are thrilled to dive into this unique and inspired community. This new location is directly across the square from Lifetime Fitness, around the corner from SoulCycle, and in the hub of like-minded businesses and individuals. With this physical evolution comes the exciting prospect of new events, collaborations, and community integration! We look forward to collaborating with local, as well as regional, instructors and businesses to give you only THE BEST Rebel experience. We have quietly popped up in the Ardmore community with open arms, and we are embracing the time we have here in our new neighborhood!

IN-STORE EVENTS → With the launch of our new location comes new ways to welcome you to the Rebel community! In our first month here in Suburban Square, we were able to hold a few in-store events, and we were thrilled by the attendance and reaction! We reflected on 2019 and prepared for the new year with a 2020 Intention Setting workshop with Nina Rizzo and Erica Cipolloni- more info on this to come. We also enjoyed a fun collaborative piercing party with Dana Rebecca Designs and Townhome Collective!
The center point of our events is wellness. Whether that is personal wellness or community wellness, we intend to spread the good word of health, mindfulness, and a positive lifestyle, as well as holding charitable events that give back to our community. Our events are unique to the Rebel brand. You never know what might be next! Want to join in on the action? We will be holding in-store events monthly- be sure to check back and join us for the next Rebel event!

REBEL TEAM SWEAT → Working out with a group is way more fun (and motivating) than doing it solo. With that being said, we’ve decided to support one another’s fitness goals while supporting fitness studios in the Philadelphia region. This helps us get outside of our comfort zone by exploring workouts we would have never thought of doing all while connecting with new trainers who inspire their community through their platform. Our first Rebel team sweat was a 75 minute heated vinyasa flow with Regina Longo at Lifetime Fitness- details on that and a spotlight on Regina coming soon! This week, we have our first Rebel team sweat of the year. Who better to start with than empowerment queen, Alexis Rose at SoulCycle!? Are we ready to tap back to some Beyonce while getting our sweat on!? I think, YES…but we’ll let you know how it goes. Wish us luck!!

SOCIAL MEDIA → In the age of ever-changing social media, expansion is impossible without taking advantage of all of our available internet platforms. We have officially separated our yoga Instagram from our retail Instagram. Love our yoga content? Head on over to @rebelyogastudio and click that follow button for more info on classes, instructors, and special events at our Chestnut Hill Studio. Here to upgrade your wardrobe?

Now that you’re all caught up, we encourage you to check back for our weekly blogs to stay connected. You won’t want to miss what we’ve got coming up! Whether you’re a seasoned Rebel or you’re just hopping on this train, we thank you for riding with and for us. Speaking of rides! Be sure to check out our next blog about our SoulCycle ride with Alexis Rose later this week.

Until next time,

-REBEL
