The Mindfulness Project in Schools

The Mindfulness Project by Tangled Feet launched in 2019 in schools and colleges across Luton. 


Participants are led through a series of activities that include yoga, storytelling, mindfulness exercises and drama to encourage exploration of their creativity. 


It is designed to create time to uncover and express student's thoughts and feelings and provides opportunities to take time to understand that all our minds get a bit stuck sometimes, children and adults alike. 


Participants will learn techniques to manage stress and will develop their confidence and communication skills.


Primary schools – KS1

Secondary schools and colleges – KS5


Who for: 

Students living with/at risk of living with feelings of anxiety or isolation


The Project:

Tangled Feet (TF) will deliver a ten week 'Mindfulness and Wellbeing through Theatre' project for up to 20 pupils in your school setting. Participants will be students at important transition stages (Year 1 groups, Year 12 groups) and will be experiencing issues with confidence and anxiety that are impacting negatively on their mental health, and subsequently, their in-school achievements.

“The project from Tangled Feet, we feel, has had a huge impact on the students involved

with many saying that they felt ‘energised’ ‘motivated’ and ‘more positive’ after each session.

We would wish for such a project to be rolled out among more students and possibly

 staff as well in the future”

Shelley Blackbird, Head of Sixth Form, Cardinal Newman School, Luton

The Mindfulness Project: One Off Workshops

The Mindfulness Project can be booked as a one off workshop(s) suitable for festivals or events.


In these sessions, the same techniques are taught and the aim is the same, for children to play games, learn yoga poses, learn techniques to manage stress and develop their confidence and communication skills whilst having lots of fun.

Belongings – Rowan Tree Dramatherapy

by Bryony Brooker & Justine Staley   An idea   First of all, I want to say I love my job and after working with Tangled Feet, I love my job with rejuvenated enthusiasm, a bag full of shiny tools, an insurmountable pride in our young co-creator team, and new possibilities of what we can bring to our work.   Just as a bit of background, Justine and I are directors of Rowan Tree Dramatherapy. Founded in 2013 as a Community Interest Company, we provide a Dramatherapy Service across Kent where we are committed and dedicated to working within the community to ensure Dramatherapy is both accessible and useful. We work extensively with young people, many of whom who do not live with their birth parents. Thanks to Children in Need, we have been able to offer fully funded group therapy each year for the past seven years to Children in Care. With each group, we create a space together that offers the potential to experience a sense of belonging that they have agency over moulding, shaping, and making their own. They have a voice, they are heard, and their feelings and emotions are validated. However, outside the therapy room, all too often these young people have had no choice and no voice, in what has happened in their past, and sometimes in their present, we always strive to support agency and wondered how could their voices become tangible?   Together, we tentatively considered how a piece of therapeutic theatre could be created and how this might look. We knew we did not have the knowledge or skill set to create the vision we had (it had to be spot on) and knew that it would take a theatre company that had great integrity and experience to pull this idea off.
