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.
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.
Namaste
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!
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!!

What Client's Say

Alexandra Ready

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!
