Yoga from the Right Side of the Brain: Awakening Instinctual Intelligence

300-hour Teacher Training Module with Denise Benitez

Are you measuring and evaluating your yoga practice? Or following inner guidance and creativity in your practice? Are you following a pre-designed protocol or responding to what is happening in the moment? Maybe a bit of both?

This workshop will introduce you to ideas and tools that will enrich your teaching and practice, and help you to learn how to balance the voices of ego and soul in your life experiences.

We will use a left brain/right brain model in this teaching to help us understand the different functions and relationships between these two hemispheres.

You will learn:

  • The role of the left brain in objectifying the body

  • How left brain allows us to know, learn and make things

  • The role of the right brain in meeting uncertainty, change, and impermanence

  • Advantages and disadvantages of mechanical models of the body

  • How the right brain is all about creativity, spontaneity, & curiosity

  • How to cultivate a flexible emotional response and hold “failure” lightly

  • Movement and relational practices to encourage authenticity in expression
