Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala
We hope you will join us for this special  Super Blood Moon* Beach Yoga flow on Hollywood Beach, near Harrison Street.**
 
The full moon is a time of change, and a calm mind and body are ideal for receiving this beautiful lunar energy and using it for our expansion - completing old cycles in our lives and setting new intentions.

This class is open to all levels, it is designed to help you connect more fully with your own internal rhythms as we connect with nature under the moon light. Whether you are brand new to yoga or in an advanced practice, this class is a perfect chance to tune inward, and nurture yourself through the practice of yoga.

Please come a few minutes early to check-in and unless you book online ahead of time, please bring $18 cash. Please bring a sheet to place under your yoga mat or you can borrow one from us. If you need to rent a mat there will be a $2 additional charge (please let us know in advance if you need a mat).

**Weather permitting. 

 

Non-heated (not air-conditioned either so bring a towel just in case), suitable for all levels. Hatha is the yoga of engagement; it strengthens and balances the body. We place the main focus on pranayama (breath control) and asana (posture) alignment but we also try to incorporate as many of the other 6 limbs of Patanjali's 8 limbed path of yoga into this class.

Expect detailed instruction; the teacher will provide modifications and variations to adjust the practice to the students' level. We begin by setting intention, then we move into Sun Salutations to warm and activate muscle. We continue through the asanas moving the body into pose, counter pose, repose to safely access the body and all systems.

“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

In this very active form of Hatha Yoga, we flow through the asanas (postures) beginning by saluting the sun and placing the focus on special placement and alignment while linking movement with the breath. Though suitable for all levels, being familiar with Hatha Yoga is recommended. 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)

 

A vigorous form of Hatha Yoga that flows through the Sun Salutations. This dance-like practice is cardiovascular and graceful. We move the body into a Pose, Counterpose and Repose, representing the three qualities of Nature so as to safely access the body and all systems. We do a set of sequences and “Echo” (Visarga) in the subsequent sequence. All levels.

Familiarity with Hatha Yoga is strongly advised.

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.
Come join us on beautiful Hollywood Beach* at Harrison Street for All Levels Hatha Yoga led by Domenic Nappa! Start the day off right with this active Hatha yoga class where we energize the body and quiet the mind with the backdrop of the sun & sea!

Non-heated (not air-conditioned either so bring a towel just in case), suitable for all levels.

Awaken the body, connect with the breath and feed the soul as we practice slow, mindful Hatha postures. Hatha Yoga is forceful yoga to strengthen and balance the body. When this motion is linked with breath it becomes a meditation in motion. This practice helps us become fully present to the moment, allowing connection to the peace within. Class ends with restoration and relaxation.

"According to the Hatha yoga texts, each posture becomes perfect when the "effort disappears", one no longer thinks about the posture and one's body position, breathes normally per pranayama, and is able to dwell in one's meditation Yoga's combined focus on mindfulness, breathing, and physical movements bring health benefits with regular participation. Yoga participants report better sleep, increased energy levels and muscle tone, relief from muscle pain and stiffness, improved circulation and overall better general health" (Wikipedia)
