Dave first stepped on to a yoga mat eight years ago and was immediately drawn to the freedom of movement and emotion it provided for him, realizing how yoga could transform the mind, body and spirit he knew he had found a home. Additionally yoga provided somewhat of a healing process from the rigors of being a Martial Artist. Dave currently holds a second degree Black Belt in a very physical style of Karate called “Kyokushin” which translates to “ The Ultimate truth “, "I see the similarities between both activities, Yoga and Karate both sync body and breath to movement, both welcome practitioners’ with open arms and minds with no expectations attached . Yoga and Karate are very Individual activities which allows for growth in body and spirit. My main goal in both activities is to have fun, yes I know I feel the benefits both mentally and physically, but for me personally, moving and challenging the body is something I cherish every day." Having completed Yin training in 2015 100 hour YYT under the tutelage of Stephanie Calhoun and just recently completing a 200 hour YYT in Baja Mexico (Yandara Yoga School) Dave wants people to get on their mats for whatever reason they choose and to know that there is a universal love in yoga for everybody no matter their background or experience.

What Client's Say

Louise Poirier

I've been practicing yoga on and off for the past 15 years with an amazing instructor who closed shop in December. In January, I was given a one-month membership at PuraVida, and a true gift it has been. I had no expectations at the outset but was very pleasantly surprised to encounter welcoming, warm and very competent and respectful trainers who are both professional and friendly. The essence of the spirit of yoga can be found at this studio. The instructors I have met are encouraging and present challenges while still reminding students to move at one's pace, listening to one's body.

Le personnel du studio Pura Vida m'offre l'occasion de pratiquer le yoga dans une ambiance accueillante et paisible qui me permet d'améliorer ma santé physique ainsi que mon bien-être psychologique, mais ce qui importe le plus pour moi est la tranquillité d'esprit qui me reste en quittant les cours. Un véritable cadeau!
merci particulièrement à Melissa et Chantel:)
