Tools and Principles for Generating Enduring Change
We've all been there: Some child just won't lay still in the Secret Garden. Or one kid topples in tree-pose and everyone follows. OR some child is screaming his head off and tackling his older sister to the ground every 10 minutes.
Okay, hopefully I'm alone on that last one, but the question inevitably arises: What do you do? How do you handle it? It can be challenging on professional and even personal levels when we face the struggle of aberrant behavior in our classes and while we may send rays of "Peace and Joy, Love and Light" and pray for "Lots of Peaceful Children", maintaining loving kindness and energy levels can present a challenge all its own.
Behaviorism is the scientific field of understanding and managing the ways in which all beings respond to stimuli. Which is to say: It is the study of how people, animals, and even plants behave. More than just training dogs to salivate at the ring of a bell, it can lend insight into our individual, personal Yoga practice as well as the practice of teaching and sharing that gift with others.
In this webinar, we will address the following:
- basic principles of Behaviorism
- points of convergence between the disciplines
- how these principles are at work with or without our knowing
- key elements that may be affecting behavior in your classes
- how to use these principles to shape the behavior YOU want to see in your classes.
