Students and teachers of the Feldenkrais Method will find opportunities for deeping their understanding and supporting their professional growth in these pages. Over two decades of experience as a Feldenkrais teacher allow me to offer you a wealth of knowledge and passion: for this elusively obvious pathway of learning to live your potential.
Kathryn Hume-Cook, Dedicated to excellence
Born 1968 in Melbourne, Australia, I have been a Feldenkrais teacher since 1999. Based in Hamburg, Germany, I teach full-time, both in my own practice as well as within Feldenkrais Professional Training Programs. I am passionate about learning and movement and this wonderful method never ceases to fascinate me as a means for growth and personal development.
We can find so many ways to explore freedom within ourselves. Which means autonomy, agency and authenticity. I love teaching Feldenkrais classes as a vehicle for exploring attuntement with onesself... Empowering you to embrace your shortcomings, live more of your potential, avow your dreams and harness your resources.
Youtube: Podcast Interview with Conmoto Petersen
I have known my colleague Christina Petersen since 2009, when we both started out as participants in Larry Goldfarbs' Advanced Training series "Mastering the Method" for Feldenkrais Practitioners, in Hamburg. Since 2019 Christina has been publishing a series of Podcast Interviews with Feldenkrais Teachers in English, Spanish and German, which reflect many different personal stories and ways of teaching the method. Listen to a large range of international colleagues describing how they use the method to improve performance in the fields of sports, culture, rehabilition, martial arts and much, much more.

Advanced: "Organisation around the Midline"
"The Organisation around the Midline" is a 5-Day Advanced Training for accredited Feldenkrais Teachers. I am delighted to host my colleague Jaime Polanco from the Instituto Feldenkrais, who is also the first Spanish Assistant Trainer, for this rare opportunity to experience his teaching live in Hamburg. The unique Functional Integration lesson he has developed reflects his deep understanding of our work and is both original and effective. Jaimes' long involvement with people, movement and neurology, as well as his intensive work in Feldenkrais trainings, allow him to teach with great clarity and a wealth of background knowledge.

Functional Integration for practitioners and students
No matter how many years we work as Feldenkrais practitioners ourselves, we remain human beings subject to all the ins and outs of life. Our journey continues with new discoveries and set backs. Just as for anyone, an FI lesson can help to gain new perspective, remind oursleves of our ability to self-regulate and re-find the elusive obvious. I will address your individual needs specifically and sensitively and use my competence and experience to offer the best possible framework for your lesson.

Individual Supervision & Coaching online/in-person
As an individual, you can arrange a consultation with me in order to work through questions about your practice - be they in terms of content, business skills or other. Talk through experiences and difficulties you have had with particular clients and situations. Ask questions about resources or suggestions for following up on significant learning moments for yourself. Prepare a particular lesson with my help. Private coaching and supervision can be done online or at my studio in Hamburg.
Wednesday afternoons: Individual "Intensives"
Wednesday afternoons are reserved for those who wish to book three-hour Intensives with me. Sometimes it can be useful to go deeply into a certain theme. In these cases we can round out your learning with background knowledge, resources, theory and homework, giving you a many-faceted experience to take home and implement in your life. This might be interesting if you are seldom in Hamburg and feel you could use a profound experience as a starting point for your own continued exploration, or for those who are highly motivated about working towards a specific performance goal.
