Janelle Simpson Finnegan, a native of Nova Scotia, is a 500-Hour registered yoga teacher ( Asmi Yoga, 200H; Asheville Yoga Centre, 230H; Halifax Yoga 200H) and was previously a family physician. Janelle came to yoga as a way to balance her body from intense endurance sport training. She soon found herself doing more yoga than triathlon and has been a dedicated practitioner ever since.

As a yoga teacher she provides a firm foundation for students by clearly explaining the mechanics of asana and pranayama, Janelle's classes are a combination of power vinyasa and Baptiste-inspired vinyasa. They build strength, stamina, and flexibility balanced with good music and humour.

Janelle continues her path of learning and living more fully day to day in her new home town of Moncton.

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:)
