"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). I recommend Yoga for Beauty with Rainbeau Mars-2 Volume Gift set to anyone who wants a challenge or as Rainbeau says just wants to breathe.
I FEEL MORE AT PEACE AND FOCUSED. THIS IS YOGA FOR MY INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL SELF.
Thank you Rainbeau. I find Vinyasa yoga to be very useful. Hope you are working to your next series. I do not want to give away the entire video but yes, there is more the the video than the workout. You have to buy it to find out more."
Very good yoga DVDs

"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
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 bought this along with Sara Ivanhoe's 20 Min Yoga Makeover (made by the same company I believe). In comparison to other yoga dvds I've viewed-- I really like this company's creations*
This set was relaxing-- The instructor guides your movements sometimes-- and when you are not looking at the screen, there is a detailed narration voice that I found really useful.
For beginners, there is someone in the back that shows you how to use your tools (blocks in particular..) --
These sets are about an hour long-- I like that .. but if I were only buying one set, I'd probably stick to the 20 min sets because sometimes I just don't have the time... but these dvds were Really nice.... Highly recommended."
