Sadhana Yoga Chi Holistic Approach Sadhana Yoga Chi is an evolution of Vinyasa Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga, Power Yoga and Restorative Yoga. Students will enjoy a unique holistic approach to yoga training... using both hard, more challenging, and soft, less challenging techniques. This approach will greatly enhance the students progress, self-confidence and ability in all styles of yoga asana practice, and expand to encompass all aspects of a balanced approach, both physically and mentally.
Hard and Soft Techniques Doug teaches a balance between both hard and soft styles of yoga practice. The hard style is more challenging, using muscle resistance based vinyasa. The soft is less challenging, without muscle based vinyasa. The course provides a professional approach to Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin, Power and Restorative Yoga. This Sadhana Yoga Chi system can be more challenging than Ashtanga Yoga, or as gentle and light as Yin and Restorative Yoga. The recipe for success is to alternate challenging days with easy days, cross-training, and some rest days.
Individual Basis The whole course is centered on recognizing each student as an individual. Beginners will receive simplistic, yet helpful and targeted instruction, while the advanced student will find it challenging and invigorating.
Sadhana Yoga Chi Levels 1 - 4 This program is based on 4 levels of practice, to encompass beginner through advanced students. The different levels are very attainable and can be maintained throughout your life.
Other Styles of Yoga Sadhana Yoga Chi is a complete system in itself; however, students are encouraged to practice and respect other styles of yoga lineage in order to attain a broader perspective and education of the art.
