Learn how you can optimise your body and mind, and reclaim your well-being. At this workshop, you'll learn a breathing technique created by Wim Hof, who first became known for his ability to withstand extreme cold and to influence his autonomic nervous system.
Discover how conscious breathing exercises can influence your ability to withstand stress, and more. Chun, a certified Wim Hof instructor, will safely guide you through a combination of breathwork and cold immersion.
Cold immersion is another pillar of the Wim Hof Method, known to reduce inflammation, improve your sleep, and boost energy levels. The purpose of this segment is to test your ability to control stress—if you are able to control your body's response to the cold, you will be better able to handle stress.
- All levels are welcome.
- We will begin with breathwork in the studio, before heading outdoors for the ice bath, at the ground level of our building.
- This workshop requires a basic level of health. Out of precaution, please avoid during pregnancy or if you are epileptic. People with cardiovascular issues or any serious health conditions should always consult a medical professional before starting the Wim Hof Method. Learn more here.
Breathwork and Cold Immersion
Hi, I'm Chun. I spent a good part of the last 15 years pushing my body through various activities like scuba diving, snowboarding, skydiving, triathlons, and military training. Eventually, it became difficult to maintain the required energy to recover in time and prevent my body from falling apart. At times, my limbs would swell painfully and prevent movement for a few days, which was probably the body's way of slowing me down.
After discovering the Wim Hof method in 2016, this painful response subsided tremendously through constant practice of breathing, cold and mindset conditioning.
I've personally seen how the Wim Hof Method has helped my fellow course participants who have been through dilapidating illnesses and inflammatory issues, or my own friends with long term shoulder and back issues. To me, this is a path with far greater outreach than the simple confines of my self, and I hope that I can play a part in the continuous branching out to help others looking for a way to become stronger, healthier, and happier.
