Aysha Bell- Dog Reiki

Aysha is a yoga teacher, healer, and meditation facilitator. She got into the wellness world and has seen how our pets’ dogs and cats can benefit from some of the healing practices I teach. As a Reiki therapist, I use my hands to direct a gentle, natural flow of healing energy into the dog's body in order to bring about deep relaxation and release tension or pain.

Similar to massaging dogs, moving slowly and taking slow deep breaths are key. I will guide participants to close their eyes and visualize healing energy emanating from the palm of their hands. They will lay their hands on their dogs and envision a healing light and energy radiating into their dog. Continue to take deep breaths and focus.

It may relieve tension or alleviate fears, giving the dog a sense of peace. Note that pain relief and rapid recovery result from treatment, aiding the body's natural healing process. Whether it's a behavioural disorder, injury, or arthritis, a dog's malady may be helped by Reiki.

Massage may reduce stress and anxiety, increase circulation, decrease pain, and strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Studies confirm that dogs like contact with their human companions and they experience an increase in "feel-good" hormones. Science also shows that dogs tend to follow the advice and example of their human companions for solving problems.

Louise Humphrey - Dog Pilates

Louise Humphrey is the founder of Paws4running and Studio 44 Pilates. She started Paws4running after her Black Labrador Pickle failed Gundog school with a high prey drive.  Wanting to make sure Pickle could unleash her energy they started to Canicross together, leading her to qualify as a Canicross instructor.

Louise has been teaching Pilates for over 20 years and has an online 10-minute Pilates for Runners membership to help you bring Pilates into your life daily to get you stronger and run longer.

With Louise’s Pilates experience she can also combine Pilates for Runners together with the Canicross ensuring that her human clients are as fit and healthy as their dogs and stay as injury-free as possible.

Class idea:

Pilates with dogs, whether you walk or run with your dog, you need to stay fit and strong so you and your dog can have lots of adventures together.  In this class I take you through some simple Pilates moves that you can fit into your day.  From standing exercises to some basics Pilates mat moves.  No Pilates experience is needed.  We might even give your dog some exercise to join in and strengthen their core too.

Siobhan Swider- Sound Healing

Sound helps to shift our brainwave state by using entrainment. Entrainment synchronises our fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency to which the brainwave can attune to. With the use of rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur).

This same concept is utilised in meditation by regulating the breath, but with sound, it's the frequency that is the agent which influences the shift. Siobhan has performed at various prestigious venues around London such as Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, Somerset House, Royal Academy of Arts, House of Parliament and Westminster Abbey to name but a few. Siobhan has also performed as a soloist for Nelson Mandela, HRH Prince Charles, HRH The Queen and The Princess of Thailand. She has worked with numerous orchestras such as The City of Moscow Ballet, London Sinfonia and The Amadeus Orchestra.

Siobhan has an extensive repertoire covering classical, popular, jazz, Bollywood and folk on the harp and is equally competent in improvisation.

Alison Taylor-Reed - Meditation

Alison Taylor Reed is an Animal Reiki Healer, Animal Communicator and a Psychotherapist.   Alison practices meditation and her dogs and cats join her in the silence and stillness.  She has found that meditation with animals creates a healing, intuitive and deep connection. Alison has shared this experience with others by running group ‘Meditation with your Dog’ sessions.

She also meditated with the dogs at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, where she had been a volunteer for 10 years.  Meditation gave the dogs much-needed respite in their kennels. Alison loved to see the dogs finally relax, yawn and sigh deeply as they lay down, closing their eyes in trust.
