Type of Event
The goal of Sadhana Yoga Chi is to create a holistic balance between learning and teaching, power and softness, intellect and fitness. As both students and teachers, we embrace a true appreciation for nature, simplicity, integrity, happiness and laughter. We are inspired to seek true human potential in all life and throughout time. Last but not least, we aspire for a genuine balance between your own physical, mental, and spiritual self.
The Sadhana Yoga Chi system is designed to affect every area of your body, with nothing left untouched. It combines the best of both the hard form and soft form worlds as it reflects softness as strength. Sadhana Yoga Chi embraces proper diet and body cleansing techniques with additional teachings on how yoga can help to influence your whole life in a positive way. Finally, this style also endorses the use of yoga adjustments to enhance the comfort and energy of each yoga posture.
