Whole Being Institute- Positive Psychology Online Course w/ Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar

This 5-week module introduces the emerging field of Positive Psychology—the scientific study of optimal human functioning. YogaFit students are exposed to the theoretical and practical implications of a positive focus, the positivity ratio, dealing with painful emotions through acceptance, gratitude and appreciation, and attaining lasting change.

  • Understand the fundamental ideas of Positive Psychology—and how changing our mindset can change the way we relate to ourselves and others.
  • Increase the “positivity ratio” as a means toward higher levels of creativity, motivation, health, and overall success—in individuals, groups, and organizations.
  • Understand the role of acceptance—of one’s own and others’ emotions—for leading a full and fulfilling life.
  • Recognize the importance of regularly expressing gratitude and maintaining a positive focus by being a “benefit finder.”
  • Learn about the roles of rituals and habits in bringing about lasting change.
