Back in 2005, I started the first ever yoga podcast. 🎧
It was amazing. Those were the super early days of podcasting, and I couldn’t believe that little ol’ me was able to reach people around the world…more than 2 million of them.
I heard from people in Australia (and was invited there to teach) who were grateful to participate in my classes. People from small towns in America were thrilled they could practice with me because there were no studios around. People in Europe started a yoga practice because the podcast made it accessible for them.
Do you know why I started podcasting in the first place?
Because I wish someone had done it for me.
When I began my teaching career, I felt isolated and bereft of any kind of connection to the teachers I enjoyed studying with who lived on the other side of the country. There was no way to connect with them. No way to get the “juice” I craved.
I was lonely and desperate for inspiration, wisdom, and connection.
When I found out that I could provide those things for others via the internet… I was hooked.
That is when my obsession with online education was born, and I’ve never stopped. I’ve continued to push the boundaries of how people learn yoga online.
In the last few years, I’ve created the world’s first (and only!) 500-hour online certification program, and I also now have a slew of other continuing education and certificate programs with an additional 250 hours of learning available.
Despite crazy skepticism around online learning for yoga, I never stop giving you the tools and resources you need to up level your practice and career.
Because I deeply believe in the power of online learning as a way to make higher education in yoga more accessible, individualized, personalized, and comprehensive.
There are no limits to what I can teach you. I’m able to answer all your questions. I can hold you accountable for what you learn, and let you learn it on your own time.
If you’ve never thought about trying online learning for yoga, or you’re skeptical (especially if you’re skeptical), then I want you to join me for two upcoming experiences:
This week on Facebook Live I talked all about the brilliance of online learning, why you should be an early adopter and the myriad reasons why this is the way the industry is moving.
Don’t worry, your local yoga studio isn’t going anywhere! But, when you want to practice while you’re out of town, or you need a quick 20 minute class in the morning, or something specific like a course on the chakras, or (as in, my case) you want to deepen your spiritual education…online is where it’s happening.
Online Learning: The Future of Yoga (and Why It’s Awesome!)
Since the launch of my comprehensive, highly personalized, online yoga certification program in conjunction with my friends at YogaDownload, the biggest challenge I face is overcoming the assumption that yoga cannot be learned online.
Dozens of graduates thriving in their communities, teaching around the world – one even invited to guest teach on her local studio’s teacher training right away – is proof that online learning works. After having led in-studio trainings for 15 years before launching this one, I’ve rarely seen such dedicated, hard-working students attain such a level of profound transformation and…mastery.
I want to tell you all about this program, and why doing a teacher training online is the smartest way to go if you can’t take the time off work, or can’t afford an in-studio experience…but still dream of becoming the best yoga teacher possible.
