Participating in Doug Swenson's Sadhana Yoga Chi Teacher Training was the greatest thing I could have ever done for myself and for my students. Doug's holistic approach to teaching makes bringing yogic philosophy to daily living a second nature. Since the start of the program, I have found myself more healthy, compassionate, and content than I could have ever imagined. I truly believe that this is in large part a result of Doug's unique, gentle, holistic, and yes...humorous, way of sharing his vast knowledge with his students. The program not only taught me to refine my teaching skills; but mostly, it showed me the path to living with integrity and gratitude. I cannot say enough about what a positive, impacting experience Sadhana Yoga Chi was, and continues to be, in my life. Not to mention, Lake Tahoe is one of the most magical, beautiful spots in the world. Lake Tahoe is a place that everyone should experience - beyond words breathtaking! I look back on the whole spectacle with fondness and love. What a blessing!

Mia Hamza, RYT 200 & 500 graduate, yoga teacher from West Virginia
