Become a ‘Jaw Yoga Instructor’

Training course for instructors and therapists

Jaw Yoga by Kieferfreund combines world-renowned, scientifically-based jaw, face and tongue exercises (myofunctional therapy) with ancient knowledge of health and effective techniques from Mindfulness. By doing so, body and mind are reconciled and long-term results in releasing jaw tension and tackling teeth grinding can be achieved effectively.

Jaw Yoga was developed through years of collaboration with dentists, therapists and movement teachers, and has repeatedly proven its positive effects on health and well-being!

Suffering from jaw tension is a very widespread problem today! 20% of the global population suffer from teeth grinding, tongue thrust, and other symptoms caused by a tense jaw. Feeling stressed out by daily life and an unhealthy posture/tongue function are the main causes of ‘jaw stress’. We need innovative teachers such as yourself, who can directly help people relax their jaw! “ (Julia Reindl, founder of Kieferfreund)

For years, I have experienced the negative effects of clenching my teeth at night and having to wear splints. Since the beginning of January 2018, I have been practicing the Kieferfreund exercises every day. I already felt an improvement after 7 days, and the improvements have endured. I now feel less pain and fewer tensions. I have become more mindful to how my jaw is feeling during the day. (Ladina Grass)

Did you know that the jaw is a stress sensor?

The muscles of the jaw are so-called ‘stress muscles’, which means they respond to stress and negative emotions by becoming tense. If this tension persists for a longer period of time, this often results in tensing up of the masticatory (jaw/chewing) muscles and, as a result, teeth grinding, pain, difficulties opening the mouth or cracking noises in the jaw. Jaw Yoga by Kieferfreund contains exercises that are suitable for everyday use in order to relax your masticatory muscles after a stressful situation, thus preventing further jaw problems.

Did you know that the jaw is connected to the entire body through the fascia system?

The fascia system is the information transmitting network of the human body. This system of connective tissue envelops all organs, muscles, bones and nerves of the body. If you chew while standing, your big toe regulates tensions to maintain bodily balance. Incredible, right?

Have your every experienced unexplained pain in a region of your body… let’s say your lower back? This may well have been fascia that are sticking together. This can be very painful! With Jaw Yoga by Kieferfreund you can keep the fibers of the fascia healthy and smooth, thus improving the flexibility and agility of your whole body.

Did you know that an incorrect tongue resting position can lead to tensions in the jaw?

If the tongue is where it should be, the tongue stabilises the jaw so that the muscles of the jaw can relax. However, if it is not in the right place, the masticatory muscles (muscles of the jaw) have to take over the ‘work’ of the tongue and become ‘overworked‘ as a result. With Jaw Yoga by Kieferfreund you will learn a healthy tongue resting position, which you can quickly and easily integrate into your everyday life with our Kieferfreund app (availabe for both iOS and Android).

“In the past 9 years I hardly ever met a patient who had jaw problems and didn’t also have an unhealthy tongue resting position. They often go hand in hand” (Julia Reindl, Speech Therapist)
