Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala

Hot Hatha Slow Flow


This class is taught by:

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.

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 Philip Christodoulou at Anuttara Yoga Shala where she attended a 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 and has been teaching ever since! Her desire 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 message of yoga peace 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.". ♥☼
In this Hatha class we move mindfully through a series of postures with the room gently heated. As we move mindfully, this practice helps build strength, a strong foundation for balance, and overall increased flexibility.  Although the pace is great for new practitioners, this practice does encourage one to use strength more than momentum so expect a challenge at any experience level. Slow and steady wins the race!
