Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala

Anuttara Raja Yoga


This class is taught by:

Edwin Prado

Edwin is a student of wisdom (jnana), life and the journey presented in every moment. His background is in engineering with an emphasis in sustainability for building systems. During college, he took a course in eastern religions for an easy grade and also to explore what other frames of perception exist. He practiced yoga on and off but never saw it as a lifestyle or a life long journey. It was eventually the unfolding of and discovery of one's actions and reactions (karma) that eventually lead him to really discover this practice. Edwin has completed Hatha, Anuttara Raja and Vinyasa teacher trainings at Anuttara Yoga Shala.
 
He feels it is an honor and a pleasure to help serve the community and give back what his teachers and journey have provided; to serve is the highest calling of any Being.

Domenic Nappa III

Domenic is originally from Rhode Island where he grew up playing football, lifting weights and working in construction, namely concrete work. After undergoing numerous upper body injuries, running became the exercise where he found peace of mind after running great distances. After moving to Florida for work and struggling for a while, through many perfectly aligned circumstances, he found yoga. He fell in love with the practice as it offered a peace of mind that he had only found on long distance runs. He enjoys the physical, upper body strengthening postures, and is well versed in inversions and arm balances. His classes, while being well rounded, will move you toward understanding the capabilities of your body as he believes there is no “can’t” or “never” in yoga. Yoga saved Domenic’s life and he feels it is his true calling to share his passion about the effects yoga can have on people's lives, both mentally and physically. He loves the prospect of being a student and teacher of yoga for the rest of his days.
A style of yoga unique to Anuttara Raja Yoga certified teachers which encompasses a gravitational surrender in yoga poses that interpret the Yoga Sutras. We follow the prescriptions and dictates of our Guru Lineage of Self-Realization. Anuttara Raja Yoga hypothesizes that the plastic tissues, primarily fascia, are the vast extensions of mind through the neuro-myofascial sheaths that correspond to the meridians and the nadis (energetic channels). In Hatha Yoga we engage muscle in order to counteract gravity, whereas, in Raja Yoga we disengage muscle and surrender to gravity completely. 
Suitable for all levels, heated.
We suggest that you refrain from eating a large meal at least two hours prior to class. Please bring a beach towel in addition to your mat or you can rent both here.
