Pura Vida means ‘pure life’ in Spanish
but in Costa Rica it is a phrase used frequently as a greeting that has a more nuanced definition. It describes a way of living that is natural, down to earth and in balance.
I established Pura Vida Wellness Centre in 2016. Previously I had been the manager of Santos Organics health food store in Mullumbimby and ran the Funkey Forest Retreat centre in the Byron hinterland where I ran detox retreats for over 10 years.
I have travelled extensively through Latin America and was inspired by a simple life close to nature.
