By Reviewer Dr. Beth #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 18, 2005
Yogini Rainbeau Mars, best known for her "Sacred Yoga Practice" series, has released a new yoga series titled "Yoga for Beauty," which I recently tried on VHS. This series offers two practices, Dawn, the sunrise practice, and Dusk, the sunset practice. In both, Rainbeau instructs a class of four participants, this time in an indoor studio (although it is decorated with many plants to suggest the outdoors). Two of the assistants show modifications, one for limited flexibility and one for limited strength. While chant-like music plays in the background, Rainbeau offers both live and voiceover instruction: she speaks live while setting up poses and moving through vinyasas for the first time, but she switches to voiceover while poses are being held. Her left-right cueing is inconsistent; sometimes she mirror cues, sometimes she does not. At the beginning and end of both practices, Rainbeau is shown performing a beautiful flow of poses a la Ana Forrest in Strength and Spirit.

The first practice, Dawn, is 44 minutes long and is designed to awaken and energize in the a.m. It begins in a seated, cross-legged position for a short series of forward bend, side stretch with neck release, and side twist. Next comes a transition to hands and knees for cat/dog stretches, adding in a lion breath. From here, you move into down dog and then come into a standing forward bend position to practice what Rainbeau calls "belly cleansing," which is a sort of nauli prep and which is repeated once. Then you move to the front of the mat for sun salutations: three half sun salutations, one round of sun salutation A with crescent lunge and an easy twist, then two rounds of sun salutation B, repeating crescent lunge and adding warrior one plus a crescent twist (cobras are subbed for upward dog in all versions).

This review is not necessarily about the 58 and 50 poses (which were absoultely amazing) Rainbeau introduces, it is about the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical benefits. The prayers performed before and after the workouts are so uplifting. The studio is amazing. The use of colors in the studio--along with the mural background and lit fireplace--makes working out pleasurable and comfortable. It is important to be reminded that Rainbeau's past workout were performed alone, outside near the ocean (which is breathtaking). It is a change but a good change.

She includes people (2 females and 2 males) from different cultures to illustrate the wonderful yoga poses. She also communicates with her cast as she demonstrates the poses--giving good eye contact and continual smiles. Each person demonstrates each level of the workout. This means if you are a beginner, intermediate for advanced person, you will not be disappointed.

I recommend using both DVDs (Dawn and Dusk)on the same day. Dawn gets me extremely energized with uplifing moods and Dusk gets me prepared for a relaxing evening. After performing the Dusk Dvd, I am so relaxed I am actually sleepy when retiring to bed. Gettting up during the night appears to be a condition of my past. Now, I look forward to rest--which is not usual for me. I awake ready and refreshed for the day ahead and extremely hungry. Skipping breakfast is no longer an option.

I practice yoga 3 times a week now that I perform Dawn and Dusk on the same day. My attitude, breathing, posture and energy level is improving daily. My clothes are starting to become loose as well (especially around my mid section).

An excellent set of Yoga DVDs, if there is only one DVD you would buy I would recommend this.
The Dawn series focuses on Core, while the Dusk on the Hips. Smooth progression of excerises allowing it to be used for Begineer and Intermediate level practise. The choice of Asanas is excellent, there is enough focus on the modifications for everyone to follow.
The music blends in well.

Level: Beginner and Intermediate+
Instructions: Spoken and Voiceover
Modifications: Shown who the flexibility challenged and strength challenged
Location: Studio
Music: Indian instrumental and hums.
Props Needed: Two blankets. For those modifying: Blocks for Dusk and Excerise Band for Dawn.
Duration: 45 minutes each

I have been practicing yoga daily for 9 years now, and I own 30 to 40 yoga videos and DVDs, including those of Shiva Rea, Patricia Walden, Tracey Rich, Seane Corn, and others. Let me just say that Rainbeau Mars' "Yoga for Beauty" has EASILY made it into my top 5 favorites. First of all, do not worry about the word "Beauty" in her title. Rainbeau's definition of Beauty is in no way shallow or superficial. ("Breathe in Self-Love, Breathe out Self-Doubt".) Instead, Rainbeau made an impression on me that she is in-tune with nature, is glowing, radiant, and happy to be alive, and she fully wishes only the best for all her students. She is obviously extremely adept in yoga, and she makes for an excellent yoga instructor, teaching precise alignment, and challenging the student while always showing how to practice modifications for those of us still working on our flexibility and strength. I wholeheartedly recommend this DVD and am on my way to buying more of her dvds, simply because I fully enjoy practicing yoga with her! -Nicole
