Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala

We hope to see you for our Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

led by Domenic Nappa III beginning on August 18th!


Mary's yoga journey began many years ago in Arizona but she really fell in love with it when she began practicing on the beach with Tonee Detweiler in 2010. Shortly afterward, she met her Teacher of Truth, Philip Christodoulou at Anuttara Yoga Shala; she attended his 200 hour 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 200 hour 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! 

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

"Yoga continually deepens my relationship with the Holy Spirit. Through this relationship, I have found "the peace that surpasses all understanding..the Kingdom of Heaven within.".

Domenic Nappa, co-founder of Ahh-mazing Yoga found peace and love within through yoga when he met his wife, Mary the other co-founder of Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala. His intention was to create a place of high energy where Mary could teach and where people would feel at home and at peace while practicing. His ahh-mazing construction skills allowed his dream to manifest into reality, he created such a beautiful space full of peace and love.

In addition to Domenic's construction skills, he runs the day to day business at Ahh-mazing Yoga Shala! People love seeing his smiling face as they check in for yoga and Domenic truly enjoys seeing their Yoga Glow as they leave to carry their peace out into the world! Domenic has faith that if you practice, all is coming as long as it is within God's will.

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.
Hasu (RYT 200) began her exploration with yoga more than 20 years ago. Fascination with energy and breath led her to the study of Amrit Yoga in 2009. She began teaching in 2011 after completing the teacher training program at the Amrit Yoga Institute in Florida. The thirst for learning more took her to complete I AM Yoga Nidra and Master I AM Yoga Nidra training and Yoga Therapy at the Amrit Yoga Institute. She has also trained with Stacie Dooreck to lead chair yoga classes. And in 2015, she became a certified stress-interdiction specialist through Bootstrapusa. This quote from her teacher Yogi Amrit Desai explains the philosophy of her teaching. “The best way to stay in the present moment is to get absorbed in what you’re doing then watch what’s happening inside of you. Feel it, don’t think it. Just relax and feel what you’re feeling.”
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.

Lisa began practicing yoga because she had irritating back pain; having played sports while growing up while being much taller than most kids her age, she found herself with poor posture and in a lot of pain. When she got into college she took a yoga course and wasn't too crazy about it at first but she did notice how specific stretches really helped with the pain so she incorporated them into her work outs. She started exploring different classes to find other stretches to help and found an instructor she fell in love with. She went to her class religiously and started also understanding the mental side of yoga. She then began her own practice and explored different styles, studios, variations. She became addicted to the idea of learning more so she signed up for a teacher training...in Costa Rica! Because who wouldn’t want to be fully submerged in a 200 hour program, smack dab in the middle of the rain forest?! She emerged a full-fledged yogi! Now she lives a yogic lifestyle and shares her experience through her classes which can be challenging yet always satisfying. Lisa loves to focus on the anatomy of the body and tendencies of the mind, which always makes for an interesting practice. Please join Lisa for one of her Ahh-mazing classes to find out more of what she’s about!
