Emotional Intelligence Coaching
Yoga is a mindful movement practice that includes stretching, strengthening, and breathing exercises that helps to connect the mind, body and spirit. With regular yoga practice, the natural skills of attention, awareness, and concentration are balanced.
Mindfulness is the continual awareness of a person's experience "in-the-moment." Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing on the present moment while acknowledging and accepting feelings, thoughts, emotions, and bodily experiences in a non-judgemental way.
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to think constructively and act wisely. Its key components include: Interpersonal, intrapersonal, and leadership skills, as well as self-management and self-awareness.

YOMEI Workshops were developed by research; Dr. Aprile Giordano, creator, and founder of YOMEI completed her doctoral studies with a focus on Emotional Intelligence. Her passion for Yoga and Mindfulness lead to an interest in further research on the benefits of the two towards a person's emotional intelligence skills and abilities. From this research, Aprile developed YOMEI workshops to help businesses, organizations, and leaders develop their skills through a whole-person approach.
What People are Saying....
Kerrie Houchens, Instructor
Purdue Global University
I think mindfulness practices in general, and EI exercises specifically, can benefit all individuals across an organization (especially within the educational arena). Mindfulness can be contagious; I'd like to think if everyone were more mindful, and self-aware of their EI strengths/potential pitfalls, that we would strengthen the overall group dynamic of teaching.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the YOMEI workshop. I was able to self analyze my emotional intelligence, it brought to light aspects I was always slightly aware of but never took into consideration. By combining the emotional intelligence with yoga you have the mind-body connection, which is key in my opinion
Suzie Welstead, Emotional Well-Being Coach, Author, & Radio Presenter
On the whole, I enjoyed the workshops as they were mindful and I love mindfulness. I Love all the elements to relax as well as writing and reflection...Emotional Intelligence truly is a clever tool that we all possess and it is a great tool to have for your own self-development....leaning to understand yourself is key.
