Love For Costa Rica and Pura Vida

It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of our everyday lives – running from work to errands to kids’ activities to check-ins with friends. Sometimes we need to slow down. Treat yourself to a “pura vida,” or “pure life.” A Pura Vida bracelet can remind you to take a moment to bask in all that life has to offer – from the simple joys of a yoga practice to a tropical retreat in Costa Rica.

Who is Pura Vida: Their Story

Pura Vida Bracelets supports artisans by selling handmade string bracelets. Their story began in 2010 when two friends visited Costa Rica. Now, Pura Vida is able to support more than 800 artisans in Costa Rica, El Salvador, India, and beyond by selling handcrafted bracelets that remind everyone to live pure, beautiful lives, no matter what.

Pura Vida Bracelets

Treat yourself to a handcrafted bracelet from artisans around the world. Not only will you be giving yourself a gentle reminder to enjoy life, but you’ll also help artisans across the world have a constant stream of income. If you shop Pura Vida’s charity collection, you can even donate to your favorite organizations, such as RAINN and Stand Up to Cancer.

Wear these bracelets everywhere you go for a constant reminder to love life – while you’re working, while you’re grocery shopping, and while you’re attending a virtual yoga class.

Love for Costa Rica

Just like Pura Vida, we can’t get enough of Costa Rica. We love the natural beauty and friendly locals. Before the pandemic, we regularly hosted yoga retreats in Nosara. Once the pandemic ends, we’ll be packing up our mats and heading there first thing!


If you plan to visit Costa Rica after the pandemic, we recommend Tabacon’s retreat destination. In the middle of a rainforest reserve, Tabacon boasts sweet scents of flora and fauna and has an excellent view of Arenal Volcano.

Live Free

Be kind to yourselves, friends, and remember to make the most of life. Slip on your Pura Vida bracelet, and treat yourself to a trip to Costa Rica (as soon as this pandemic is over, of course!). Stay healthy. Stay relaxed. Live free.

There is no better way to learn about the practice you love than through a yoga teacher training.

Join us and give yourself the opportunity to rest, heal, shed, and grow.
