    Myokinetic Fascial Lines in Horses

    Myofascial kinetic lines are interconnected chains of muscles, myofascia and other fascial structures, responsible for the movements of the body. It is a novel dynamic way to look at the traditional static anatomy. The lines describe the flexion, extension, lateral felxion and rotation of the spine in interplay with the extremities. One of the lines also describe the connection between the somatic body and the viscera.

    TTouch® & Science and TTouch® for Exotic Species

    1. TTouch® & Science: The Tellington TTouch method is a gentle and effective method to improve well-being and behaviour and to strenghthen the human-animal bond. As a veteriarian I like to dive into the science for a deeper understanding of the method. The presentation will help you to understand why the method is so powerful and how you can use the scientific knowledge for the best results when working with animals and humans. 2. TTouch® for Exotic Species: One of the great aspects of the Tellington TTouch method is that it works for all species. After more then 20 years working with many different species I notice more and more how much I am learning for the work with domestic species when I work with wild and exotic species. I will present several examples how TTouch can imporve the live of animals from Iguanas to marine mammals and will share insights that will help you also to improve your skills with every species you may work with.

    A Hero's Journey: Guiding your client from despair to confidence & Arousal in Dogs

    A Hero's Journey: Guiding your client from despair to confidence. Living with a dog with challenging behaviours is never easy. Clients can go through many highs and lows. It’s a long and sometimes painful trek. In this presentation TTouch Companion Animal Instructor, Toni Shelbourne takes you on the client’s journey to becoming their dog’s hero, and explains your role in supporting them, (or even yourself if you live with an anxious dog), through the peaks and troughs of supporting their dog to a happier life. Arousal in Dogs: Many dogs become over-aroused through excitement or anxiety. Often, they struggle to stand still or listen, finding taking on information and retaining learning difficult. Due to the wide range of tools in the TTouch Practitioners kit bag, the Tellington TTouch Training method can help these dogs calm, learn and thrive. Find out how in this presentation by TTouch companion Animal Instructor Toni Shelbourne.

    From Fear to Forever Home: How TTouch Can Help Cats in Shelters

    In this presentation, I will show how TTouch can be a life-changing modality to share with cats in shelter/rescue environments. TTouch can help foster a deep sense of well-being for cats: physically, emotionally, and behaviorally. And that, in turn, speeds up the socialization process, and the cat’s chances for adoption. This can cause a ripple effect, in which the people working in the shelter environment start seeing the cats’ potential differently. Sharing the work with staff can make a huge difference as well. In this class you will learn about making a quiet but powerful connection with cats through TTouch, always letting the cat lead the session. I will show ways you can work with fearful, feral or feisty cats, including ways of connecting with them even if you are not initially able to touch them. I will also include some techniques to help cats who may have arthritis or mobility issues. In the end, it is all about being in the moment, and discovering what can happen in the moment

    TTouch for Sport Horses: Improving Performance During Competitions - My Experience at the Olympics & WEG

    During competitions it is crucial that the horses are in top form and bodily, mentally and emotionally balanced to be always ready to perform at their best. TTouch is a fundamental tool to achieve these goals. Including some TTouches to the daily body work before the classes and using some of them after the exertion is fundamental to manage the stress and the fatigue and to increase the body awareness and physical energy necessary to win. The presentation will reference to my experience at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2021 and At the World Championship at the WEG in Herning last August where we won 3 Gold Medals and 1 Silver: what impressed all the presents in both event was the incredible form the horses showed during the days of competitions and their amazing readiness to perform. I am more than convinced that TTouch plays a huge role in these victories.

    Introducing the Tellington TTouch® Method to Italian Riders

    When we started to teach and organise Tellington TTouch trainings in our country the method was mostly unknown. The amateurs riders were the most interested to try it but many times, back to their stables, they were dissuaded by their instructors which didn’t know the work and looked sceptically at it. We than decided to dedicate different trainings depending on whether they were amateurs or professional horse people, with the intent of put everyone at ease. So we did and do: 1-The “3 Module Introduction Training”of three long week-ends for amateurs and pleasure riders. Module one “Trust and Respect” essentially based on the TTouches, Module two “Balance and Coordination” mostly dedicated to the Ground Work, and finally the third module “From the Saddle” where we focus on the ridden work. Couples of participants work with one horse, the same for the three appointments, one every 3-4 weeks, and go thought the steps of our techniques and philosophy. 2- The Tellington Method for professional riders “Horsemanship for Sportmanship”. This is a three days training open to 4 riders with their own horse which is presented to solve a specific problem or improve performance. We work the horses our selves with the participating of the rider or the groom or care giver of the animal. From day one we ask our photographer to take pictures of each horse focusing on posture and expressions. We alternate theoretical lessons about anatomy, physiology of the movement of the horse and of course TTouch and practical sessions. The last day, thanks to the pictures, we show the changes of each horse during the first two days of work and lead the riders in the experience or riding their horses with the Tellington tools and thought the exercises. We try to keep people were they are offering them solutions with their horses which can be easily be integrated with they routine at home. This make them comfortable without feeling stressed about changing too much and staying in their comfort zone.

    What Animals Teach Us

    What Animals Teach Us: Insight and Inspiration Animals live with a sense of being and purpose that is free of politics and financial concerns. Working with them, whether through TTouch or other modalities such as animal communication, connects us with the earth in a way that helps to fill the empty spaces within ourselves. From playful to profound, Lauren draws on her decades of communications with animals all over the world to offer wisdom and inspiration on universal topics: • How we can better connect; to each other and to the earth • How can we rediscover the love and beauty all around us? • The importance of finding your tribe • How can we view death? • Perspectives to help us navigate life These messages from animals are a bridge connecting us to all of nature, offering unique perspectives, insights and steadying voices for our troubled world.

    Why your Psoas Muscles, Eyes, and Brain are so connected: Experience the Trifecta!

    Come experience how the psoas muscles, your eyes, and your brain are so intricately connected. People think the psoas just has to do with the back or hips, but it is much more. When these large muscles are not balanced, it can affect your eyes, focus and lightheadedness or dizziness. We will use Feldenkrais movement lessons and Ruthy Alon's brilliant work with walking, even if we are sitting in our chairs. And know, this isn't just for us on two legs, but it is equally important for our four-legged friends.

    What CranioSacral Therapy Can Teach Us About TTouch

    Why does TTouch work? What body systems are affected by TTouch? Craniosacral Therapy can introduce practitioners to a deeper understanding of TTouch work. Sally Morgan PT will introduce Craniosacral Therapy, a gentle hands-on treatment that focuses on alleviating restrictions to the physiological motion of the membranes and bones of the skull, including the face and mouth, as well as the vertebral column, sacrum, coccyx, and pelvis. Craniosacral Therapy has its roots in the medical science of cranial osteopathy. Accessing the central nervous system, Craniosacral Therapy techniques have a powerful influence over a wide variety of body functions. Craniosacral Therapy engages the body’s mechanism to heal itself. Many TTouches have a direct impact on the craniosacral system. TTouch and Craniosacral Therapy share similar philosophies. Understanding the anatomy under our hands can enhance the effectiveness of our work with TTouch. Sally will examine the connections between TTouch techniques and Craniosacral Therapy. Also, Sally will present the results of her study assessing stillpoints, or stops in the craniosacral rhythm, in dogs, people, and horses while they were being treated with Tellington TTouches.

    Expanding your Wellness Toolkit: Integrating Flower Essences with TTouch to Create New Opportunities for Change

    Flower Essences are one of the best-kept secrets in the healing world that can optimize your TTouch hands on work. These gentle, safe and natural remedies ease fear and tension and help animals develop confidence and learn more easily. One of the core philosophies in TTouch is to recognize the ability of living beings to change. When we as handlers use our observation skills to see and respond to what is happening in the moment, we are most effective in helping the animal to likewise be in the moment and respond to what is actually happening, rather than what happened in the past. Flower Essences provide a unique opportunity to connect to and to release stressful or traumatic memories that are held in the body/mind. They combine beautifully with TTouch bodywork, and give you another useful tool in your wellness toolkit. You’ll learn how to integrate flower essences into your TTouch sessions, and to support the changes between sessions. They can reduce the time and effort needed to work with an extremely guarded or traumatized animal, and give you a way to provide care that is safe for you and the handler.

    TTouch® for Teenage Dogs

    Tellington TTouch can support and help our dogs feel safe through all their life stages. Marie’s presentation will focus on adolescence. Families often think that the adolescent dog should now know 'how to behave' and is being 'stubborn or naughty' when his or her behaviour does not comply with all that is expected. The teenage stage is often difficult and challenging for dogs, just at a time when their humans might see them as almost fully grown. As well as settling into a body that has grown at enormous speed through puppyhood, there are also big hormonal changes that affect the youngster mentally and physically. Physical balance can be a huge issue for adolescent dogs, physical and emotional states are intrinsically linked. Marie is going to share how Tellington TTouch supports teenage dogs, helps them to feel safe and confident, both physically and emotionally.

    Secrets of the Spine

    In Chinese medicine, a flexible spine is considered a guarantee for a long life. If you take a closer look at the anatomical structures, this is not surprising. The spinal column extends from the head to the tail, i.e. once through the entire animal. It protects the spinal cord, part of the nervous system. It is directly connected to the skull and the pelvis. The individual vertebrae are connected by many small joints. Numerous muscles attach to the spine, organs are "suspended" from it. In the Tellington Method we have numerous possibilities to feel and mobilise the spine. After an introduction to the anatomical connections and some sensation exercises for your own spine, I will explain in detail how to focus on anatomical structures in the Tellington Method. You will learn which TTouches are particularly suitable for the spine and what to pay attention to when performing them.

    Embodied Horsemanship

    Many of my students have questions that are not about their riding, or training, but about the nature of their relationship with their horses. For example: What is it that I want from my relationship with my horses? Why do I experience the same issues from one horse or instructor to another? What other perspectives might I include to expand my experience with horses? BETWEEN 60 AND 80 PERCENT of human communication is nonverbal, spoken in the physical languages of movement and touch. But while we are talking all the time, we often lack a clear vocabulary and syntax of the body. And it is here that our relationship with horses (and humans) can become complicated, even to the point of breaking down. Communication between human and horse relies almost entirely on the nonverbal - if we aren't aware of what we are saying with our movement or how we are saying it, we cannot possibly expect to form the kind of trusting and consistent partnership with our horses that is integral to recreational and competitive equestrian pursuits. Embodied Horsemanship is grounded in principles of listening and co-embodiment to create a collaborative, engaged relationship with the horse, rather than using force or dominance. Embodied Horsemanship is about finding ease and attunement with the horse as we become more aware of our own bodies and find more pleasure and confidence in our movement and touch skills.
