Why Pura Vida?

Erika was introduced to yoga in 2016 when she studied abroad in Costa Rica. Her life path changed from a corporate office accountant to a holistic health enthusiast after her studies in the tropics. If you have been to Costa Rica, one term you should be familiar with is “Pura Vida” (pronounces poo-rah vee-dah).  Simply translated, it means “simple life” or “pure life”, but in Costa Rica, it is more than just a saying—it is a way of life.
After returning to the USA, Erika knew the one thing she wanted to bring back and share with others from her studies was the Pura Vida way of life.
Costa Rica has been named one of the happiest countries in the world, mostly because its inhabitants don’t stress about things the way most foreigners do. In Costa Rica they have a very relaxed, simple way of looking at life. No worries, no fuss, no stress—pura vida to them means being thankful for what they have and not dwelling on the negative. They remain optimistic, despite any circumstances.
