Left brain Student Right brain Teachers

The Left-Brain Teacher

Teachers with left-brain strengths generally prefer to teach using lecture and discussion. To incorporate sequence, they put outlines on the board or overhead, and they like to adhere to prepared time schedules. They give problems to the students to solve independently. Teachers with left-brain preferences assign more research and writing than their right-brain peers.

The Left-Brain Student

Left-brain students prefer to work alone. They like to read independently and incorporate research into their papers. They favor a quiet classroom without a lot of distraction.

The Right-Brain Teacher

Teachers with right-brain strengths generally prefer to use hands-on activities over a lecture format. In concert with the right-brain preference of seeing the whole picture, these teachers incorporate more art, manipulative, visuals, and music into their lessons. They tend to embrace Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences.

The Right-Brain Student

Right-brain students prefer to work in groups. They like to do art projects, industrial arts electives in middle school, and graphic design. They would prefer to design and make a mobile rather than write “another tedious term paper.”

The Bridge of Energy in Motion

The bridge .. There is not just one type of bridge. The type depends on the different ways to distribute the tension, bending and torsion throughout the structure.. Sometimes we must build are own bridge and distribute stress/get across pain, disappointment and grief in different ways each time. Be a builder!

Chilly Georgia mornings are great for the feet! The cold seems to wake up my senses and gets everything flowing.

One of my favorite asanas … the shoulder stand is good for balance and getting those shoulder muscles strong. It also looks cool when your just floating

The Great Plough variation….. Last night I attempted to put my legs behind my head sitting with legs crossed and I was almost successful.

Another Plough variation… simply walk your legs to the left then hold and breathe …. walk over to the right hold and breathe…. then separate! now relax!
