Teaching yoga online really is different from teaching other types of online courses.
I’m Eileen McGurty, a yoga teacher who’s spent almost two decades in the trenches of online teaching. I’m on a mission to rid the world of the run-of-the-mill, kinda lame online you course and to build a powerhouse of transformative learning.
I’ve synthesized my nearly 20 years of online teaching expertise into a streamlined course development process specifically for yoga teachers — so you can get your course DONE with no headaches, stress or worry.
When I’m not helping yoga teachers create exceptional online yoga courses and programs, you’ll find me roaming around the mountains of western Montana with my two Bergamasco Sheepdogs, Kali Ma and Sampson.
A little more about me…
I spent almost 20 years as a university professor and administrator. During most of that time, I taught online regularly (as well as in the classroom), trained other faculty members to teach online, and built and ran online graduate programs at leading universities.
When I started teaching online in 1999, the technology was cumbersome and most people thought online courses were not “real” learning. And in the beginning, lots of bad courses were out there. But the good ones started showing amazing results – great interaction with students, amazing student outcomes, and teachers and students loving the freedom online courses provided.
In 1997, I found yoga and everything change. After a decade of dedicated study, I became a yoga teacher in 2008, teaching part-time at several studios and to incarcerated men and women in New Jersey.
When I started taking online courses for yoga teachers, I was amazed at how poorly designed they were. Even the greatest yoga teachers had no idea how to harness the power of online learning.
That’s when I knew that I had something unique to offer my beloved yoga community. I’d be honored to support you to FINALLY build a sustainable income with online yoga courses.
