Karma wellness studio to open in former Chelsea’s Bar and Grill space

WICHITA — There’s another new tenant for the former Latour Management space at Comotara Center at 29th and Rock, and this one has a lot of Karma.

That’s the name of the new wellness studio that Rebecca Lee will open in October in 3,600 square feet of the former Chelsea’s Bar and Grill.

“This is going to be a total experience for whoever walks through the door,” Lee says.

She’ll offer Pilates, yoga, personal training and Thai massage.

Lee will partner with others, such as nutritionists, to expand what she can offer. She’s interested in partnering with anyone who has creative solutions for wellness.

“Part of my mantra is accepting everybody,” Lee says of potential clients.

She says some people say yoga and Pilates are for everybody, but Lee says some people don’t think it’s for them.

She says she focuses on “every body” and wants to specialize in catering to individuals’ needs, including people with special physical needs.

That’s why she’s offering Thai massage, or what she calls yoga therapy.

“I call it therapy because it’s very therapeutic,” Lee says. “It’s just a very restorative type of massage.”

Since Chelsea’s and Olive Tree Bistro closed late last year, Corporate Caterers of Wichita has leased space in the former banquet facility, and Eccentricity has taken 3,680 square feet where the Olive Tree was.

It’s not clear how much — if any — space is left to lease there.
