Pure Love from P.U.R.E. Yoga & Wellness

P.U.R.E. Yoga and Wellness offers private yoga instruction, workshops, corporate yoga classes and reiki services. Malikah Karim, RYT-200 and owner of P.U.R.E. Yoga and Wellness, says, “P.U.R.E. Yoga & Wellness is a brand that was birthed from my passion of wanting to help people around me as I was helping myself. As a new yoga instructor and new stay-at-home mom seven years ago, I just wanted to reach out to the women around me with a message that was all over my heart—that women need to feel worthy and take time for themselves so they can thrive.”

The name P.U.R.E. stands for Practicing our beliefs, Uniting as women, Relief from sickness and burden and Enlightening women about the journey of self-growth and discovery. “Recently, I formed an awesome partnership with Saadia's Juicebox & Yoga Lounge downtown to be their in-house health coach and offer yoga classes,” shares Karim.” I organize Event4Women's annual holistic retreats, and now offer a flourishing health coaching practice. Ask about a free health exploration session or meet me on the mat for yoga and meditation.”

Karim was also recently painted on a wall near VCU by one of Richmond’s local mural artists, Emily Herr, representing the inclusion and progress of our beautiful city and wellness community. Karim, in eagle pose, can be found on Gilmer Street (between Marshall Street and Clay Street).
