The schedule of group classes includes Vinyasa sessions for beginner, intermediate, and advanced practitioners. Yin yoga builds flexibility by requiring students to hold poses for two–six minutes at a time, in contrast with the constant flow of poses in Vinyasa yoga. The studio holds more than 34 classes every week Monday–Saturday.
Pura Vida Yoga
Pura vida roughly translates to “full of life”, something Xenia Guido, founder of Pura Vida Yoga, aims to create for her students in her studio. Rooted in the flow-based vinyasa style of yoga, classes blend physical, mental, and spiritual pursuits, building flexibility, breath-work to stay the mind, and peaceful centeredness. The series of alignment-based movements can inspire deep concentration and self-awareness, but they also provide a vigorous workout.
Xenia also founded Pura Vida on the principle of community. She encourages students to talk to each other and designed her classes to be as inclusive as possible. Whether novice or advanced yogi, students can attend most sessions since they can be scaled to fit any experience level. New students who feel more comfortable with other beginners also have the option of taking level 1 classes to learn basic poses and how to swaddle a newborn yoga mat.
The heated studio itself also feels “full of life” as if it sprung fully formed from the soil thanks to Xenia’s eco-conscious mindset. The floor uses natural cork to cushion feet and prevent jolts to the joints during vigorous sets. Cork blocks and yoga mats made from natural materials are also available in the boutique.
