Yoga Studio Opens in Jefferson Valley Mall

Pure Presence Yoga LLC recently opened their doors at 650 Lee Boulevard, Suite K03, on the ground floor of Jefferson Valley Mall, in Yorktown Heights.

“We love the fact that we are conveniently located in the mall,” enthuses owner Maria Mehta, a yoga instructor and reiki practitioner. “We hope this makes our space feel physically and energetically accessible to everyone who comes by. We aim to create a sense of community and to be a welcoming space for healing and growth,” adds Mehta, who mentioned that yoga has been an instrumental part of her healing journey and that she is passionate about sharing the gift of yoga with others.

Mehta explains that their goal is to make yoga and wellness feel attainable to everyone and break the stigma that these practices are just for a certain type of individual. This is why Pure Presence offers many types of yoga and wellness practices, from chair and restorative to power and Vinyasa and all levels in between. They also plan to offer monthly sound baths, private reiki and yoga, reiki circles, dance/yoga fusion and eventually women’s and men’s healing circles.

“My instructors have decades of experience between them—all ready to guide students on their yoga journey,” adds Mehta.
