Relief from Jaw Tension through Yoga and Mindfulness with Cator Shachoy
Saturday September 9th 11am-2pm
Do you clench your jaw, or grind your teeth at night? This workshop is for you! It will also be of interest to Yoga Instructors wishing to help their students. Jaw Tension and TMJ or TMD – Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction – is a very common, and often painful condition. At present, there are few options for treatment beyond being fitted for a night guard by your dentist. In this workshop you will learn the causes and repercussions of TMD, simple self-massage techniques to relax the face and jaw, mindfulness practices, and a yoga asana sequence that can bring relief. This is a unique approach developed from working with more than one hundred clients over many years.
**Jaw Tension can be a factor in many conditions including headaches, sinusitis, sciatica, digestive and hormonal disorders. Come and learn why this is so and how to bring relief.
