Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala

Ahh-mazing Hatha Yoga


This class is taught by:

Mary Nappa

Mary's yoga journey began many years ago in Arizona but she really fell in love with yoga when she began practicing on the beach with Tonee Detweiler in 2010. Soon after that, she met her Teacher of Truth, Philip Christodoulou at Anuttara Yoga Shala where she attended his Anuttara Raja Yoga teacher training solely to deepen her own practice. By graduation day she was overtaken by the passion to share yoga with others so she immediately signed up for the Hatha Yoga teacher training. Mary has been sharing yoga with others ever since! Her passion to share yoga with others eventually led her and her husband Domenic to create Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala on Hollywood Beach! 

Mary considers herself to be a Bhakti Yogi (a yogi of devotion); she prays daily to be a clear channel for God to use in sharing the peace of yoga with others. Her prayer is that all beings may one day find the peace of Divine Love & Light within.

"Yoga continually deepens my relationship with the Holy Spirit within; through this relationship, I have found "the peace that surpasses all understanding, the Kingdom of God within.". ♥☼

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.
We focus on pranayama (breath control) and asana (posture) alignment. Expect detailed instruction throughout the class; the teacher will provide modifications and variations to adjust the practice to the students' level of practice. Non-heated, suitable for all levels.
 
“The main objective of Hatha yoga is to create an absolute balance of the interacting activities and processes of the physical body, mind and energy. When this balance is created, the impulses generated give a call of awakening to the central force, which is responsible for the evolution of human consciousness. If yoga is not used for this purpose, its true objective is lost.”
 
~Swami Muktibodhananda Saraswati, Commentary, 1985 translation, Hatha yoga Pradipika
