Retakes & Audits
The skills and quality of work that develop through allowing yourself to learn more at any level of practice are invaluable. Southwest Ashiatsu always offers retakes and audits for all classes because we know how important your career and your clients are to you. In order to get and give the most from this modality, it is necessary to see, hear, feel, and do the techniques in a class setting as often as possible, especially when it's difficult to receive Ashiatsu in your own area. Anyone capable of putting themselves in the learner's seat again will improve their skills tremendously, progress much further with barefoot massage, and gain a higher quality level of therapy to offer their clients.
See policy information and Register for Retakes & Audits below.
Once you've taken a course with us, you are welcome to *retake that same course for 1/2 tuition in any of our locations. Courses may be retaken by choosing dates and locations listed online or booking your own private class with a partner in your own studio or at a home studio location (Private Class rates applicable).
*A Retake is full participation in all scheduled bodywork hours and optional note-taking hours. Retakes mean that you will be giving and receiving the bodywork, able to ask all the questions you have, and participate fully in as much of the lecture and note taking of class as you wish.
All of our courses contain specific techniques, methods, & information that will be new to you, no matter when or where you took a class. Twice per year, each course is evaluated and effectively revised to keep a consistently, updated foundation of research & development that has always put Southwest Ashiatsu at the highest level of quality.
If you've taken [a] course(s) with another provider, you are welcome to enroll in our Introductory Course as a Retake. There are many different techniques, body mechanics, and general information taught in all of our classes that it's necessary to enter our method with the Introductory Course at any level of training outside Southwest Ashiatsu. Of course you're welcome to register for Advanced levels at regular tuition if you've taken Ashiatsu/barefoot effleurage massage classes previously, and must attend the entire course to receive credit hours.
Registration is mandatory to retake any course.
Once you've taken a course with us, you are welcome to audit portions of the same course(s) for up to 1 year after your original class date -at no cost. After 1 year, audits are $20 per hour audited. Audits do not require bodywork given/received, and may have limited note-taking hours, dependent upon the number of registrants and other auditors in that class. No credit hours are supplied for auditing a class. You may select the portions of class you would like to hear and see again to be notified of those times so you will be sure to be there during those times. Auditing means you will have limited participation - observing only - for limited time frames. You may take notes, however we ask that you refrain from taking video or pictures during audits - it's absolutely ok to do so in a retake, when you are a full-participant in the video & pictures taken.
It is mandatory to register to audit any course in any of our locations and discuss what portions you'd like to audit with the instructor prior to class. Previous schedules for the same course may have changed since you last attended. We highly recommend retaking a course to be able to give or receive the bodywork portions of that class.
