Editorial Reviews

Vinyasa Flow for Beginners
Yoga can help reverse the aging process by improving flexibility, massaging the internal organs and glands, sending oxygen to all the body's tissues, and enhancing a state of serenity. Breathing deeply into certain postures affects the nervous and lymphatic systems. It helps relieve tight muscles, increases energy and circulation, improves strength, and promotes radiant skin. On a deeper level, it's a tool for observation. It brings us into the present so that we may fully receive what each moment has to offer and teach.

Join Rainbeau Mars and experience yoga in paradise on the breathtaking beaches of Maui. Vinyasa Flow: Beginners features easy-to-follow, flowing yoga postures to give you a foundation to begin your own yoga journey.

The body is like a recording device. Each time we hold our breaths, get angry, stressed or experience pain, it's recorded in the body. Vinyasa Flow: Beginners is a mind/body practice, focusing on the breath and peaceful meditation. Practice with Rainbeau regularly and you will feel powerful results, both physically and mentally.

This is truly the heart of yoga. Enjoy!

Pure Power
Pure Power is designed to align, strengthen and stabilize your body, mind and spirit. Evolving from the traditional Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow focuses on integrating breath and movement, awareness and alignment, strength and flexibility. Vinyasa Flow Yoga is likened to a beautiful and dynamic dance as the postures and asanas are connected through breath and balance.

Pure Power focuses on core strength and alignment, as we integrate towards our center, or core, we increase our courage and the ability to meet all that life has to offer.

Enjoy your own courage and strength as you wake up, strengthen, and enjoy the Pure Power journey.

Pure Sweat
Pure Sweat is a vinyasa flow sequence designed to detoxify, strengthen, and open your body. Stay with your breath as you build internal heat. Welcome the heat as it purifies and cleanses your body.

Listen to your body, take breaks and enjoy your Pure Sweat journey. How long you live is up to fate. How you live is up to you!

Pure Tranquility
Pure Tranquility is a gentle practice, designed to open your body and prepare your mind for meditation. For some of us, the real challenge is to be still, quiet and simply be with ourselves.

Pure Tranquility gives you the tools to help balance the demands that are put upon our body, mind and spirit. Replenish the source and you can live in a state of inner peace, vibrancy, health and harmony.

Customer Reviews

Bleh So, this set has surprised me that it has co-opted me into yoga.
J. Keiser
That's not to say it's easy: moving slowly is actually harder than moving quickly, because it's easier to cut corners when you go quickly.
Nadira Jamal of the Improvisation Toolkit
The Third Tape "Pure Power" is a very challenging tape that emphasizes poses that will build strength throughout your entire body.

Fairly recently I purchased this wonderful four tape set by Rainbeau Mars "Sacred Yoga, Vinyasa Flow" and have done all of the practices in it, some of them several times already.

I have been doing yoga daily for about five years, work weekly with a fantastic and inspired teacher and have over 80 videos that I alternate with. So I feel really confident in praising this yoga practice series by Rainbeau Mars. It is a really outstanding addition to my collection.

The First tape "Beginners" is a wonderful gentle series of flowing poses that open your body mind and spirit. It's not just for beginners though but can be used by more advanced practitioners who want a gentle routine to do on days when they don't want to push too hard. It can also be used as an additional warmup for the more challenging tapes in the series(though she does warm you up on those as well) or if you just want to extend your practice.

The Second Tape "Pure Tranquility" is also a gentle practice with emphasis on poses that open the hips, back and shoulders to prepare for meditation. The entire practice is also a meditation in itself as Rainbeau Mars leads you mindfully thru the series of poses.

The Third Tape "Pure Power" is a very challenging tape that emphasizes poses that will build strength throughout your entire body. It's a nicely balanced sequence that will also increase your flexibility as well.

The Fourth Tape "Pure Sweat" is more of an "Ashtanga" influenced practice that will move you through a flowing set of poses that will challenge your strength, flexibility and build heat in your body as well.

Ms. Mars has a wonderful way of leading you through the practice with clear and very helpful instructions that can deepen your practice.

The four routines in this set provide a nice variety of yoga practices which are applicable to a wide range of yoga practitioners, from experienced beginners to more advanced yoga students. The practices are led by Rainbeau Mars, who offers voiceover instruction in a calm soothing voice. Her mirrored cueing is excellent (although sometimes slightly out-of-sync with her movements on screen), and she is obviously very knowledgeable about yogic principles and traditions as well as anatomical issues. In addition, the practices are filmed in Hawaii against beautiful backdrops.

The most basic practice in this series is Pure Tranquility, which is designed to prepare the body and mind for meditation. The entire practice is performed in a seated position, and Rainbeau guides you through gentle stretches to open the body and relax the muscles. The Beginners video actually offers a bit of a challenge and requires some pre-existing strength. In this practice, Rainbeau begins slowly with breathing exercises and warm-up stretches. She continues with several vinyasa flow series, still moving slowly but holding some poses (such as downward dog) for an extended period of time.

The remaining two practices in this set are significantly more challenging than the first two. In Pure Power, Rainbeau builds on a series of sun salutations by adding rigorous poses such as side plank, crescent lunges, chair, and 3-legged down dog. Pure Sweat further picks up the pace by adding additional lunges and twists as well as plenty of yogi push-ups (chatturangas). Although these two practices are definitely at an intermediate/advanced level, Rainbeau performs them at a leisurely pace and does not include inversions, thus making the practices extremely accessible.

This 4 tape set by Rainbeau Mars is a treasure of Yoga Gold with many unique colours.
If you only owned one set of Yoga Videos I would say this would be one of my top choices without a doubt. The reason is that there is so much variety between these tapes that you can choose one on any given day depending on your level of energy or depending on what you want to focus on.
What is special about this series is that each of these programs is completely unique. Many Sets of Yoga programs are basically the same routine with more poses added (or harder variations) rather than unique programs unto themselves. Rather these programs are completely different from each other. What's nice about this is that you can actually alternate these programs each day or combine them if you have more time without the routines overlapping.
The first two tapes "Beginners" and "Pure Tranquility" are gentle tapes that let you melt into wonderful yoga flows that will make you feel incredible as you open up your body, mind and spirit with movement and breath.
The last two tapes "Pure Power" and "Pure Sweat" will challenge you and push you to new levels of strength, endurance and flexibility while maintaining the true essence of yoga which is awareness and breathing.
Rainbeau Mars is a wonderful and inspiring teacher who comes across with real depth and sincerity. You feel like she's right there with you leading you through the practice. She's a real yoga teacher and not an aerobics teacher who decided to do a yoga video because it's the "in thing" .
Also, these tapes clock in at about 30 minutes so they are very easy to fit into anyone's schedule so there are not reasons to ever skip a day of Yoga.
Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Namaste
