Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala

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.


Domenic Nappa III instructs the following:
  • Ahh-mazing Vinyasa
  • In this very active form of Hatha Yoga, we flow through the asanas placing the focus on special placement and alignment of postures while linking movement with the breath. It is a vigorous class and we generate a good amount of heat within (tapas) so please bring a beach towel in addition to your mat or you can rent both here. ($2.00)

  • Power Vinyasa
  • Utilize gravity to balance, open and strengthen the body. Learn to defy gravity as you move through a Power Hatha Yoga Flow which can be tailored to your level of experience. As with all of our other classes, we focus on the breath (pranayama) and asana (posture) alignment.
    Bring a beach towel, a bottle of water and your mat! (or you can rent/buy them here)

  • Anuttara Raja Yoga
  • 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.

  • BEACH YOGA!!!!
  • Come join us on beautiful Hollywood Beach* for All Levels Hatha Yoga! Energize the body with the breath, quiet the mind and reconnect with the Spirit while enjoying the sound of the ocean with the warmth of the sun on your face! We supply sheets; mats can be rented for $2.00 or bring your own. Why not start the day off right and then stay to enjoy the beach for the rest of the day!
    *Weather permitting, a refund or credit will be provided if the weather does not cooperate!

  • Hatha to Anuttara Raja
  • This class begins with Hatha Yoga, the yoga of engagement which strengthens and balances the body, then gently transforms into Anuttara Raja, the yoga of disengagement which promotes flexibility of body and mind. Suitable for all levels. We practice in a gently heated room so please bring a large towel in addition to your mat. 

  • Ahh-mazing Hatha Yoga
  • 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
