You will quickly become comfortable with her cheerful and thorough teaching style. I look forward to sharing with you my own tips and experience and cheering you on as you make it to the finish line.

Yoga Vista Academy Mentor Teacher, Yoga Vista Academy Certified Chair Yoga Dance, Chair & Gentle Yoga and Low Back Care Teacher


I am so very glad I decided to sign up for the mentorship program. It made a huge difference in my progress in the program. The Mentoring program was VERY helpful! I do like to work on my own, and I thought I would easily be able to do that as I have before with other online (unrelated) courses. But as I noticed myself letting “life” get in the way of my keeping up my pace, and the offer for the Mentorship program was so affordable it made it a no brainer to give it a try.

I got a lot of value from the conference calls and sharing with the others in the group. It gave the experience a much more connected and personal feeling to speak with others going through the same process.

Academy Certified Chair, Dance and Low Back Care Yoga Teach

Sometimes doing a course online can be lonely. Having the Mentor and the group, really helps to bring the students together. The Facebook Mentor group were also very encouraging and helpful with their support and ideas. We all wanted each other to succeed.  Gerry was an awesome Mentor and Coach and I would never have graduated without his support!

Suzanne Gifford

Academy Certified Gentle Yoga Teacher

While I got a lot out of the traditional online course, I kind of got hung up in the anatomy portion and the online mentoring program with Viki Boyko got me past that hurdle. The Teachback video was really hard for me to contemplate, and I’m not sure I would have gotten past that without Corey’s Live Mentoring class. Corey was fabulously supportive and also gave me a lot of ideas and a network of chair yoga instructors to work with.

Overall, the course taught me a lot – the fact that it took me a year and a half to finish might have had something to do with it! But, I do feel extraordinarily prepared to go out and teach!

Betty Willis

Academy Certified Chair Yoga Teacher

I do love the course materials, You Tubes, newsletters, etc. but somehow I became, in Corey’s nice word, “stalled.” A few days after Corey emailed me, I finished the section on the spine and took the tests. Thank you for creating the mentor/cheerleader position. I feel I’m not alone now.

Judy Rycombel

Academy Certified Chair Yoga Teacher

Corey is a treasure – I am SO glad to have had her support in this journey. Thanks to her encouragement, I am through the final exam. I just need to spend more time watching videos and continuing to build on what I’ve already done, and in the next month or so, I can record my teachback. I already know what I will be writing for my field assignment, based on two friends in my class.
