Roots Up is created for those who want mindfulness and anxiety-reducing solutions for children, but are overwhelmed and short on time.

The Roots Up library hosts over forty 5-minute videos that both caregiver and child practice together to soothe body and mind. Each lesson builds upon the next ensuring that new coping skills are learned.

Each video includes guided imagery, deep breathing and mindfulness: all science-backed techniques to connect the mind and body. There’s always an option to engage in seated or movement practice.

Participants learn lifelong coping strategies and a natural way to increase focus, calm the nervous system, and cultivate compassion for self and others.

All videos are approximately 5 minutes long.

Some Tips to Implement:

Use the videos at the start the day, during a transition or at the end of the day.

Our research shows that playing the same video up to 3 times helps participants gain mastery over the target skill.

Participants who used the curriculum 3-5x a week showed an increase in focus and a decrease in anxiety in both caregiver and client.
