DON'T LIVE IN NYC? NO PROBLEM!
If you can't attend classes in person, either because your availability doesn’t mesh with when the courses are offered or because you don’t live in New York City, we offer the entire course via online distance learning! We've had yoga teachers from around the world take the course online from the comfort of their own homes, and most are thrilled with the material (we've posted a few testimonials on this page).
TWO MAIN OPTIONS
- You can complete all three courses online via home-study, or
- You can register for and complete ASFYT-1 & ASFYT-2 online via home-study, and then plan to attend ASFYT-3 when it is offered as a week-long intensive (click here to see when the next intensive is being offered)
We have also had people who have started out in the home-study track and then switched over to the residential course when their schedule became free, and people who have started out in the residential track and then had to switch to home-study because their work schedule changed or they had to move out of the city. So there is a lot of flexibility.
HOW IT WORKS
After you register, we'll contact you to let you know about the next live orientation webinar for home-study students. If we don't have one scheduled in the near future, you can also watch the recorded version of a recent webinar. The webinar is about 60 minutes and consists of:
- Overview of the ASFYT Course Requirements
- Overview of the Syllabus for ASFYT-1: Bones, Joints & Common Injuries
- Q&A with webinar participants
The Student Resources Website
Once the course officially begins you’ll be given access to the Student Resources Website for ASFYT-1, which contains:
- The lecture notes and accompanying PDF slides for each lecture
- 60-90 minute video presentations for each lecture
- Full audio recordings and short video clips of any demonstrations given from the live classes in NYC
- Online, open-book quizzes that cover the material from each lecture
- Access to the current ASFYT-1 Facebook Group, where you'll be able to interact with other students in the course and ask any questions that arise during your studies
The Study Process
Each course contains twelve lecture modules. For each lecture module, you should:
- Download and print the lecture notes
- Watch the video presentations and take any additional notes you like on your copy of the lecture notes
- Do the recommended reading from the required book
- Stucy the lecture notes and presentation slides
- Take the online, open-book quiz
The Quizzes & Final Exam
The online, open-book quizzes for each lecture module are meant to help you assess your retention of the material. We recommend that you study for these quizzes as if they were closed-book. However, if you encounter a question that you don't know the answer to you can just look it up. In this way, the quizzes also help you to review the material. You need to score at least 80% on each quiz to pass it and move on to the next module.
At the conclusion of the course, there is a 100-question final exam with questions randomly selected from the preceding quizzes. As with the quizzes, we recommend that you take the time to study for the final as if it were closed-book… but again if you encounter a question that you are unsure of you can look the answer up in your notes.
Why Open-Book Quizzes?
While some people love to take quizzes, other people get overly stressed out by them. We don't want anyone to be overly stressed out about the quizzes or the final… and making them open-book, with no time limit, accomplishes this to some degree. But even though they are open-book, there is no way to score over an 80% without closely reading each question and potentially digging through your notes -- which ensures that you are spending time with the material. And ultimately, that is all we want you to do… spend time with the material in a friendly way.
Each course consists of twelve lecture modules and is twelve weeks long, running concurrently with one of the residential courses here in NYC. This works out to one lecture per week, so that you have time to study and integrate the material before moving on to the next lecture. If you end up needing more time to complete, you have up to one year to complete each course from the time that you start it. If you don't complete it in one year, you can pay $100 for a year-long extension.
