A Level 1+, 40-minute class by Lauren Eckstrom, Yoga for Wellness focuses on basic movements as well as stress relief and a sense of well-roundedness. Use this Power Vinyasa Flow class to cultivate space in the hamstrings. An area of the body where we tend to hold onto past pain and other “old narratives,” it’s important to work the hamstrings for improved practice and overall fitness. Tight hamstrings are a common problem for yogis, making it essential to incorporate hamstring-centric poses into your practice.
I've always been interested in consciousness and learning how to live my life to its fullest potential. I'm a deeply spiritual person and I've been fortunate to have some amazing teachers in my life. While I was attending Sonoma State University I took my first yoga class. It was called Somatic Yoga, taught by Eleanor Criswell. I loved Somatic Yoga so much that I took it for several semesters. Eleanor, Thomas Hanna's wife, taught me how to self regulate and experience myself from within. This led to further professional training. By becoming a massage therapist and yoga instructor, I learned more about anatomy and physiology. While I was studying for my Masters Degree, I enrolled in several advanced study programs including a three-year process to become a certified Hanna Somatic Practitioner.

A place to breathe deeply, strengthen and nourish your body, and awaken your spirit… Yoga can help reverse the aging process by improving flexibility, massigning 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 increases circulation and promotes radiant skin. It helps relieve tight muscles, increases energy, and improves strength. 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.
