What’s in Your Yoga Bag? with Rainbeau Mars

[ 10 ] May 23, 2012 |

Rainbeau Mars Manduka Yoga Yogitoes Hafiz Burt's Bees Prada

Like a pot of glittery gold under her namesake, Rainbeau is a wealth of generosity and invaluable health + yoga knowledge. Tell her casually that you’re having trouble sleeping or feeling icky lately and it becomes a priority — a problem that’s important to her to solve. She’s passionate about living in harmony in every aspect. Ask her what her spiritual inclinations are and she’ll say with a dimpled grin, “I am a Jesus-loving Hinjew Muslist.”

We sprawled out in the sun recently to dig into her yoga bag — right next to the orange tree I gave her for her last birthday. Her headquarters sanctuary is full of trees, flowers, fruits, herbs, and vegetables that Rainbeau herself planted with love and care. Everything her bag holds has been chosen with the same heart-centered orientation.

Rainbeau’s passport is indicative of her outlook on unity, “We are all citizens of the world. At the core, we’re all the same.” She’s wildly excited about the recent approval of her 10-year Indian visa. Understandably so!  I love that she uses a photo of her daughter as a bookmark. The mala beads carry a sweet (and hilarious) story. Rainbeau was in India, discovered the necklace and wanted to buy three of them — one for her daughter, her mother, and herself. She didn’t have enough rupees, so she asked the seller if he’d take partial payment in trade — her Ra’yoKa DVD. He asked if it was meditation and she said, “No, it’s a yoga DVD.” He wasn’t having that and said NO. (I cracked up at this part of the story!) Lucky for Rainbeau, three young girls offered to buy the third necklace as a gift. So beautiful + generous.

How cute is it that she has rainbow checks?!

Rainbeau mentioned that her new favorite color is green. The last time we hung out, it was purple. As she says, “Picking one favorite color is like choosing a favorite from seven kids. I love them all!” That’s Rainbeau. All traditions, all colors, all religions, all beings. All love.

    #14: My absolute favorite book on the entire planet. Any friend of Hafiz is a friend of mine. “Even after all this time, the sun never says to the Earth, ‘you owe me.’ Look what happens with a love like that. It lights up the whole sky.” ~Hafiz (from above book)

    Looks like I’m going to have to start carrying around avocados if I want any kind of yoga street cred!
