The Power of Yoga and Positive Psychology
Rather than concentrating on pathology such as depression, anxiety, or mental illness, positive psychology is the scientific study of human flourishing—focusing on what makes a person thrive and lead a more fulfilling life. In this YH-TV episode, you’ll hear from WholeBeing Institute’s CEO Megan McDonough as she shares key research in positive psychology on the compelling science connecting positive emotional states with specific physical postures. We’ll explore the implications of this science for yoga—and what it could mean if we used our yoga practice to consciously cultivate states like gratitude, love, joy, and happiness.
