What is Yaya Yoga ca? 

Yaya Yoga ca has a lot to offer kids and families in San Luis Obispo County! Children & adults gain the flexibility needed to keep their muscles safe. They build core muscles and strengthen extremities that make high intensity exercise, such as sports or dance, safe and enjoyable. Breathing, visualizing, and focusing techniques that are introduced to children & families ease stressful situations. Children learn mindfulness and concentration techniques that help them in school as well as in play.


Featured Breath! 

Spiderman Breath

When kids are having a challenging emotion such as anger, frustration, or sadness we can encourage them to find their breath. Spiderman Breath is a fun way for kids to find their deep belly breath and access their "thinking brain"! 
Spiderman breath helps kids shut down their fight, flight, and freeze within their brain(found in the amygdala) and helps them access their prefrontal cortex which is responsible for decision making. Once they are able to access their "thinking brain" aka the prefrontal cortex, they will be able to calm themselves down and talk through their tough emotion and hopefully together find a better solution in moving forward! 
How to do Spiderman Breath: 
Have kids make their hands into Spiderman hands the best they can(index finger, pinky finger and thumb out). Take a deep belly breath and shoot out your spiderwebs to the sky, out the sides, or to the floor with your breath making a shooshing sound! Do this three times to help them access their PC!
