ASP Sta. Rosa conducts 2nd Community Yoga

Yoga can bring many benefits and for those in the Autism Spectrum, it is particularly helpful as it provides sensory integration, improves confidence and social skills and engages the emotional brain. Realizing yoga’s many benefits, ASP Sta. Rosa conducted its 2nd community yoga for Persons with Autism (PWA’s) and their siblings last 1 March 2014 at Fortezza Clubhouse Function Room, Laguna.


It was conducted by ASP Sta Rosa chapter president, Olive Medina, a certified yoga teacher by Rainbow Kids Yoga International and Yoga Vidya Gurukul. She was assisted by the parents and caregivers of the participants. The activity provided the participants a fun and healthy way to bond together. Everybody had a great time doing various modified yoga poses, listening to storytelling, having some quiet time and relaxing massage.

ASP Sta. Rosa Chapter hopes to have yoga as a regular recreational and physical activity for its members and share the practice to other chapters as well.
