Our teacher of the month for September is Doug Swenson. Doug has been a student of yoga since 1969. He is a master yoga practitioner, philosopher, poet, and dedicated health advocate. He has incorporated influences from several different yoga systems along with his passion for nutrition and the environment to develop his unique approach. He has written several books: Yoga Helps, The Diet that Loves You Most, Power Yoga for Dummies, and Mastering the Secrets of Yoga Flow.
Of the many great yoga teachers I have been so fortunate to study with over the last 25 years, Doug stands out as one of the most lighthearted. His knowledge and experience is extensive, and he delivers it with such humor and passion, that his students are inspired to float and fly through a rigorous yoga practice like children at a playground.
When he is not in South Lake Tahoe, Doug can be found in many corners of the world, teaching and training students in one of most all inclusive, creative yoga forms available.
Visit Doug at his website http://www.sadhanayogachi.com, and plan a trip to see him for a happy, and potentially life-changing yoga experience you will carry with you forever.
