Taking In the Good: Positive Neuropsychology in Yin Yoga w/Jennifer O'Sullivan (Arlington)

Because of our brain’s ability to change (plasticity), we can train ourselves to tilt our mind towards happiness. In his book “Hardwiring Happiness,” Dr. Rick Hanson outlines a simple, yet potent, method for overcoming negativity bias called Taking in the Good. In this workshop, Jennifer combines yin yoga with Hanson’s techniques, and will offer an interactive mix of lecture on the method, some partner and large group dialog, and a gentle yin practice as a context for having positive experiences even when things are challenging.
