« Gritting your teeth » can be used as synonymous for determination, purposefulness and persistence… or for putting up with something, surviving a hardship. Whereas many of these qualities might have their place in life, millions of people suffer the consequences of « gritting their teeth ».
The Feldenkrais Method offers you not only many wonderful and simple ways to address temporal-mandibular dysfunction like teeth-grinding, jaw-clicking and resulting tension headaches but also helps you to explore resourcefulness within yourself.

This workshop is taught by Kathryn Hume-Cook. Kathryn has decades of experience working with the Feldenkrais Method and has taught numerous workshops relating to the jaw. She is one of our Assistant Trainers teaching in the Professional Training Programs and has a busy practice in Hamburg, Germany. Born in Australia with a background in dance Kathryn brings humour and warm-heartedness as well as patience and understanding to her teaching.
This workshop is open to all interested parties, both with and without jaw-related issues. The jaw, tongue and mouth are intricately related to the functions of daily life, to balance, posture and well-being. Heightened awareness for the way you use your facial muscles, hold your head and coordinate your lips, throat and breathing will have a profound effect on your general sense of ease.
No previous experience with the Feldenkrais Method is necessary, however those who are already familiar with the method, or are practitioners themselves, will benefit just as much from Kathryn’s presentation of this subject.
