Yoga & Emotional Intelligence


Next to a practical, technical and philosophical understanding of the practice of Yoga, Yoga teachers today require a wide range of inter-personal and intra-personal (emotional self-management) skills to be effective, compassionate guides to their students.

At Yoga Vana, we conduct 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Courses in India which are accredited by Yoga Alliance, USA.

As a part of the one-month residential course, I have developed and facilitate a module on Emotional Intelligence covering the following subjects:

  • Understanding ahimsa (nonviolence) in thought and language: theory and reflections

  • Understanding and evolving patterns of talking to self and others: introduction to Nonviolent Communication as developed by Marshall Rosenberg

  • Introduction to basic coaching skills in order to guide students in their practice: self-empathy for the teacher, deep listening, offering empathic presence, asking open questions

  • Self-reflection on one’s personal journey of becoming a yoga teacher: intention, purpose and accountability


Are you organising and conducting Yoga Teacher Trainings in India, Europe and beyond?

Would you like to add an Emotional Intelligence module to your syllabus?

The Yoga Vana Emotional Intelligence module can be adapted to fit your Teacher Training Course schedule and syllabus.

I am available to facilitate the module as a guest faculty in Teacher Training Courses in India, Europe and beyond.

Get in touch with me to discuss a possible collaboration - I look forward to hearing from you.
