How-to namaslay your retreat game with Rainbeau Mars


Rainbeau Mars wants you to join her in Hawaii. Yep, you heard right, Rainbeau’s semi-annual yoga retreat Elevate Your Soul kicks off next week and we think it’s the best gift you can treat yourself or loved one with. Reward yourself with the ultimate gift of inner peace.

Born: In a tepee under a double rainbow in the Ozarks of Missouri.

What do you pack in your cases for a Hawaiian Yoga Retreat: My travel bags were packed with essential oils (to keep the bugs away!), and to also help with zits and beautification. Cute bathing suits, easy to slip on jumpsuits, hats of all sizes, flip-flops, and an island back pack and journal. And of course my yoga matt.

Where can we find you when you’re not in Hawaii: I am based in Los Angeles and travel often all over the world.

Known for: Yoga and having been the Global Face of Adidas. And being an author, of the 21 Day SuperStar Cleanse Book and program. I’ve also produced and acted in movies and television shows.

Success is: Inner peace and a life filled with beauty, happiness, and spontaneity.

What is the best gift that you have ever received: The trips I have taken to study the path of inner knowledge. They have been gifts that have changed my life and have allowed me to invest in change and grant me so much abundance.

What is your “go-to” gift for family and friends: I often gift people essential oils or beautiful organic blankets or bowls for weddings. I love gifting people what I have made from my heart as well, so any of my products or even the Golden Eagle Necklace which does a great job of sharing in this way.

Why did you become a yoga instructor: I fell in love with yoga because it helped me connect my body and mind in the midst of the chaos called Hollywood. Yoga first started out as an amazing workout to help keep me grounded and connected before or after auditions, but it soon began to branch into every aspect of my life.

What would you say is a common mistake or misconception about yoga: Nearly every day I hear someone say that they are not good at yoga, or won’t do yoga because they are not flexible… which I find really funny because that seems like the perfect reason one would begin practicing, as good yoga is more about showing up and being present then how flexible one is which can often be a distraction.

Who or what has been your biggest inspiration in your practice: Chuck and Maty, the founders of Yoga Works who I mentored, were both part of my original yoga inspiration and are the reasons why I have the skills to teach like I do.

Holistically I serve a whole life approach that’s been influenced by my Ayurvedic doctor Godmother, Light Miller and herbalist mother, Brigitte Mars.

I work with a Peruvian Priestess, named Dona Maria who would be the equivalent to the Queen of the Q’ero people, which are actually Incans. As well as Juan Ruiz, the founder of Inkarri and the Dalai Lama.

When do you feel like your best self: After I have practiced Yoga and during or when I am in the water. I also like bodywork of many kinds.

What can first timers expect from Elevate Your Soul: A retreat like no other, a complete inner and outer rejuvenation of body, mind, and spirit. Guests will encounter new information and content that they have never heard or practiced before, and if open to it, can change and shift their life. Our guests will feel renewed, fresh and awaken to experiential elemental, practices, cellular regenerating food and adventures to shift the whole being.

Can you purchase a retreat as a gift for a loved one: Yes, it’s the perfect gift for anyone looking for a renewal in their life!
