In a medium bowl, combine the warm water and sugar. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Add yeast and stir. Let sit until frothy, about 5-10 minutes.
In the bowl, of a stand mixer combine salt, whole wheat and all purpose flour, flax, sunflower, and chia seeds. Attach dough hook and with the mixer on its lowest setting slowly add the yeast mixture and oil. Knead in mixture until dough ball has formed. Increase speed to the next lowest setting and knead until dough is relatively smooth, about 10 minutes.
