Yoga

Pura Vida Resort and Spa staff yoga instructors offer their own unique style of hatha yoga twice a day except on Wednesdays.

While styles may vary from instructor to instructor and week to week, our classes are always appropriate for students of any level and our teachers are extremely responsive to students’ needs and interests.

Yoga classes are included in our Mind+Body+Spirit packages.

Nightly guests are welcome to attend for $15 a class per person by registering at the reception area.

Everyone is welcome to use our four yoga halls for personal practice when they are not in use or scheduled for class. All are stocked with mats, blocks, straps, blankets, and more.  To honor the sacred space, we ask that you kindly remove your shoes before you enter, do not bring glass inside, return all yoga props after use and clean borrowed yoga mats with supplies provided.

Play Fit classes– 45 minute cross training sessions taught by a certified personal trainer– are challenging and fun for any fitness level and are offered for $15 per person.

You’ll find yoga and fitness class times and locations on the current weekly schedule posted at the Wellness Center lounge and at the reception desk. View a sample weekly schedule.
