Have you looked down your torts throat to see if you can see anything? You can also offer a bit of mineral oil in a yummy bite size treat and that will help lube/coat her insides a bit to help something move along a bit easier....however, if she is acting normal in all ways other than yawning then I would not be too worried yet but I absolutely would keep an eye on her behavior.

Please also check your temps to make sure all is warm enough -- what is your average humidity? Does the tort do this primarily after awaking? If so, likely just yawning..
