Grow emotional intelligence
Yoga as a career tool.
Small steps to achieve a life of joy and success through emotional intelligence.
Are you aware of how you feel? Of course we all want to say yes. Yet knowing that true emotional clarity takes practice, and believe it or not, a consistent yoga practice does just that.
Emotional awareness develops rapidly when we practice yoga. Knowing that being emotionally strong can lead to stronger leadership and quicker problem-solving, it's not difficult to understand why successful people everywhere are adopting weekly practices.
As you dive deeper into all aspects of yoga, you can expect to move through a powerful process that will bring you clarity and receptivity. Awakening and making friends with an aspect of yourself, that has always been within you, is the real prize. It is the feeling of coming home, and once we find home, there is no turning back.
We already know that a lot of famous people like Kate Hudson, Lady Gaga and Madonna practice yoga. Lots of professional athletes like David Beckham and Lebron James also swear by it. Lately, we have observed that more business people and entrepreneurs with stressful careers have also turned into yoga as a way of a more balanced life. Some famous business people that have joined the yogi club are: Oprah Winfrey, Russell Simmons, Sergey Brin (Google's co-founder), Jack Dorsey (Twitter's co-founder), Arianna Huffington (Huffington Post), Clint Eastwood and many more.
"As you dive deeper into your meditation, you see people, events and circumstances as they really are, not as they are perceived to be"
says Michael Jacobs, entrepreneur and coach.
