Quand j’arrive en haut de l’escalier, peu importe à la vitesse où j’arrive, dès que je passe la porte et pénètre dans l’espace Pura Vida, je reviens à mon essence, je ne suis plus la mère, l’amoureuse, la collègue, l’employée de personne, je suis moi pour moi. Et une fois dans le studio, dans la chaleur et l’obscurité du climat bienveillant, mon esprit n’est habité que par la voix enveloppante de l’une ou l’autre des instructrices, je ne pense plus à rien, soulagement et libération du corps et de l’âme. Puis je redescend l’escalier lentement, légère, pour réintégrer doucement ma vie.
I’ve always been a sporadic yoga practicer - hardly the yogi I had pictured in my mind. I never fully committed, even though I knew in my heart of hearts that Yoga was my home; my safest of places. 2019 changed that. I broke. I went through a terrible break up, I lost a lot, I had been diagnosed with 2 auto immune diseases- all inflammation related, and I just broke. My mind, body, and soul were exhausted, stressed and very much out of alignment.

April 2019 I made a commitment to my highest self, the self who is authentically ME to dig deep and make a real change. I walked into Pura Vida with a false sense of self confidence and took a plunge. I still remember that first class, I have goosebumps now writing about it. Laura was the instructor and I was hidden in the back, unsure of anything. Laura walked in and welcomed the class, and I was INSTANTLY at ease. The class was nothing short of phenomenal, and fun fact - I cried in Shavasana because I knew I found home. Happy Tears!

Every class I gained more and more self confidence, my health issues began to disappear, my mind became calmer, my body was LOVING the detox, and so was my heart. I got to know the instructors more and more and loved them uniquely for what they offered to us, their kind souls emanating through each practice with SO MUCH LOVE! You can FEEL the energy in the room when you're on your mat- this yogi community is pure HEART!

I have been to numerous studios around NB, and while each have a very special vibe - Pura Vida is exactly that - PURE LIFE.
Yoga makes me feel calm and grounded! The environment at Pura Vida Studio is beautiful and full of amazing energy; thank you to the staff for making each yoga practice a unique experience!
Pura Vida is my happy place!! I've met so many great people at the studio which many have become good friends. The teachers are always attentive and offer tips on modifications of postures to help develop your practice. This studio is by far the space I enjoy to go to when I need to reconnect with myself, mind, body and soul. They offer a wide variety of heated and non-heated classes that are open to all levels of practice. Pura Vida represents everything that the essence of yoga is about.

For someone who has never been much of an active person, I got my proof this morning of how much I now love hot yoga which I started about 6 months ago. Since I didn't get to a class in the last week while Marc was away, I was up and ready for an 1.5 hour class this morning. I got there only to realize I had gotten the time wrong and had missed the class. I felt like crying, truly sad. Very strange feeling for me, as I've never felt this way about any sort of physical activity. Feeling grateful that I've found an activity that nurtures my body and soul. Thank you Pura Vida!!
Thank you for the wonderful, enlightening workshop on Sunday. The most helpful part of the workshop was the information given on the new routine. I have implemented all aspects (rising with the sun, movement ,tongue scrapping, warm lemon water, largest meal mid day, oil massage, bed by 10pm) into my daily routine since Sunday, and I am already noticing a difference in how well I sleep, feeling more energetic and positive. Positivity is a daily struggle for me, and when I find things that help me move towards my goal of being a more positive happy person, I am over the moon, and I thank you for bringing this into my life! Especially as a mommy to be.

Again, thank you both for such an informative enlightening workshop. I hope you might hold something similar before baby arrives!

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:)


Depuis 3 ans, je pratique le hot yoga à une fréquence de trois fois par semaine. J'adore particulièrement la pratique du matin. Elle favorise mon bien-être général, l'harmonie de ma personne et ma flexibilité. Pour deux ans, j'ai eu la chance de bénéficier des classes de Kathryn McCracken et je suis en admiration par l'énergie Zen qu'elle transmet dans son enseignement. Je suis vraiment reconnaissante pour l'ouverture du studio Pura Vida Yoga à Dieppe!


I started going to Pura Vida when I was experiencing anxiety from stress and having regular panic attacks. Having taken medication for anxiety in the past I wanted to explore other methods before having to take medication again. I had taken yoga classes at a local gym in the past and decided to give it another try. Since joining I've been attending classes regularly, I fell In love with hot yoga! my panic attacks and anxiety have subsided and when I have a stressful day at work I make it a point to attend a class, when I wake up feeling anxious I make it a priority to go in for a class and take care of myself. I love the sense of community at Pura Vida! Thank you so much to all the amazing teachers who are there for us every day guiding us through our practice as we all deal with our own struggles, such a therapeutic environment.
I have been practicing different forms of yoga for over 10 years and am truly inspired by the magnitude of how it has transformed my life. My hot yoga practice keeps me physically and mentally fit, spiritually grounded and has taught me more about myself than any other form of physical activity. I am now a practicing Naturopathic Doctor and understand the health benefits of hot yoga, and recommend it highly to my patients. What PuraVida offers is more than just a space to get fit, it is a welcoming community of people who care about your well-being and guide you towards deepening your practice, on and off the mat. Moncton is lucky to have such a great place!
