About us

Welcome to Purple Mat Yoga

Yoga is a way to connect the Body and Mind

Our philosophy is centered on the belief that yoga is for everyone no matter what their walk of life, current physical abilities, or mental state.

We strive to give our best efforts to use the techniques of yoga to help you transform your body and mind one health-enhancing breath and stretch at a time.

Purple Mat Yoga was born of the love and effort of Odalis Recchia and her passion for yoga. After seeing the transformation the practice of yoga gave to her own body and mind she decided to share yoga with others.


Odalis Recchia graduated from Ramapo College’s Yoga Certification Program with 200 hours RYT. She also attended Young Mountain Yoga Children’s Certification Program CRYT. She continues to attend workshops in all aspects of yoga, and in addition, Masala Bhangra (Indian dance aerobics)  and Thai Yoga Massage.

After carrying her heavy bags of yoga supplies to children’s yoga classes in Rockland County schools and locations in Bergen County, New Jersey, and with the enthusiastic support of her family and faithful students, she decided to take a leap a faith and Purple Mat Yoga studio was born.

We make our prices  affordable so that everyone can reap the benefits from the ancient and health-giving practice of yoga.

We enjoy teaching yoga to everyone from children to adults and seniors. We have special sentiment for the Veterans’ community; we always provide free classes for them.

In addition to yoga classes for children, adults, and seniors, we also offer classes in the Masala Bhangra workout (Indian dance aerobics), and sessions of Thai Yoga Massage, coupled with aromatherapy employed in most classes.

We want everyone to feel welcome to our calm, safe, and nurturing environment, to feel at home, and to feel the vibration of our community spirit.

We hope to continue serving our community, expanding our services and spreading vigorous health and love through our yoga journey.
