How It Works
The kids follow the story along, becoming everthing in the story; the tree, the car, the lion, the rocket, the stars, the storm etc, and when a character is confronted by an obstacle or gets upset, the kids remember their Adventure Skills. When they use the Adventure Skills they shift themselves into a calm centred place, where they can do some "smart thinking" and make a behaviour choice that enables them to overcome the obstacle.
Kids A Go Go Yoga is a programme that truely supports the whole child with fun active play and ideal exercise and develop social/emotional skills.

Physical movement has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, stimulate brain growth and neural connectivity (neuroplasticity), and improve cognition and academic achievement. Patterned, relational, repetitive and rewarding moment practices are being recognized as more effective than cognitive approaches for children under stress and affected by trauma..
Mindfulness research suggests that sustained practice can enhance attentional and emotional self-regulation and promote cognitive flexibility. Both staff and youth benefit.
Emotion is a powerful vehicle for enhancing or inhibiting learning. When individuals connect cognition and emotion and adopt a “meaning mind-set” – seeking connections, giving to others, orienting to a larger purpose – clear benefits can result, including improved psychological well-being, more creativity and enhanced work performance.
