Yoga for Emotional Intelligence

Yoga EQ (Yoga for Emotional Intelligence) is an embodied social and emotional learning program that teaches emotional intelligence and social skills through movement, meditation and breath. Students will learn how to identify and label their emotions as well as how to consciously shift their mood through movement. Yoga EQ strengthens the mind-body connection, fosters emotional regulation, builds interpersonal skills, and enhances self-awareness.
