Body Up! Co-Regulation Demo Videos

Guidelines for Using the Videos

The online exercises are some of the most powerful, even when you are in-person. These videos for the in-person exercises are just short reminders of what the exercises are about. Be sure to talk with your partner about what you notice in your body after each exploration.

TALK about what you notice in your nervous system is an important part of Body Up! Co-Regulation. Remember to take turns with a leader and a mirror for the practices that involve mirroring. Share what you notice about your nervous system after each turn.

The longer videos give more of a feel for the practices and for the leader and mirror roles.
