Wim Hof Fundamentals workshop
You are stronger than you think.
Put in the simplest of terms, the Wim Hof Method® is a way to keep your body and mind in its optimal natural state.
For most of our evolutionary history, a merciless natural environment automatically did this for us: sub-zero temperatures, howling winds and hungry wolves kept our muscles and veins supple, and our minds sharp and clear.
Fast forward to today, and phones are exhausting our brains, while the rest of our body wastes away as we sit in toasty rooms strapped to stiffening chairs.
As a result, those natural defenses are no longer on high alert. We fall ill more easily. We stress out, lose sleep, and wake up without focus or energy.
The first pillar of the Wim Hof Method® is breathing. We’re always breathing, yet we’re mostly unaware of its tremendous potential. Heightened oxygen levels hold a treasure trove of benefits, and the specialized breathing technique of the Wim Hof Method unearths them all: more energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune response that swiftly deals with pathogens.
The cold is your warm friend and one of the three pillars of the Wim Hof Method®. Proper exposure to the cold starts a cascade of health benefits, including the buildup of brown adipose tissue and resultant fat loss, reduced inflammation that facilitates a fortified immune system, balanced hormone levels, improved sleep quality, and the production of endorphins— the feel-good chemicals in the brain that naturally elevate your mood.
The third pillar of the Wim Hof Method® is the foundation of the other two: both cold exposure and conscious breathing require patience and dedication in order to be fully mastered. Armed with focus and determination you are ready to explore and eventually master your own body and mind.
my journey with
breath & WHM
As a teenager, I suffered from anxiety. I would find my body becoming a tense jangle of raw nerves in a sudden rush that would leave me, literally, breathless. Focusing on my mindset and my breathing was the best way for me to regain control of my thoughts, and while as a youngster I didn’t realise that what I was doing was a form of breathwork, I knew that it was working for me. It quickly became my secret weapon against anxiety, allowing me to overcome my fears and win lead roles in school plays, put myself out there and represent the school on the sports field with my competitive running, and stop letting myself get in my own way.
As I got older, the juggle of adulthood took over. The corporate job, the house, the kids, the business… I let my mindset and breathing work be the thing that fell off the bottom of my list. Sure enough, the old fears and sense of overwhelm came flooding back. I knew I needed to make space for my mind in my life, and this time I really wanted to understand the connections between mind, body and spirit. I invested time and energy in learning and in essentially rewiring my brain, and with my NLP Coaching qualifications, followed by Meditation and finally Breathwork tuition qualifications, I have been able to make mindset work a regular and essential part of my business and my life.
I can’t wait to introduce you to the WHM, to help you find your focus and banish the overwhelm.
how does it work?
During a 5 hour workshop I will teach you everything you need to know to be able to practice the Wim Hof Method at home.
I will teach you how to detox your body, alkalise your blood and stimulate a natural anti-inflammatory effect.
I will teach you how to elevate your mood, increase mental clarity and boost your energy. This method has also been shown to play a part in healing for anxieties, chronic stress and other trauma.
No extra equipment or special skills are required, just an open-minded approach and a willingness to give yourself over to the session without trying to control it or overthink it. That’s part of the magic of it – you’re carrying everything you need for a transformative experience within your own body!
what’s included in the session?
A Wim Hof Method Fundamentals workshop will last around 5 hours and will be split into 3 parts.
The first part of our time together will be explaining to you the method and explaining how you can incorporate this into your daily habits. I will answer all and any questions – no stone will be left unturned.
I will then guide you through a WHM breathwork session. Again I will fully explain to you how this works and will be on hand to support you through the whole session.
Then when you’re ready we will explore the incredible sensation of trying the ice bath for your cold exposure. I understand that some people might feel nervous about this part. All I ask is that you bring willingness to trust the process and let the method do the rest of the work.
Personally, I have found that incorporating the WHM into my day has had the most noticeable and lasting impact. I’m so excited to share this technique with you, and can’t wait for you to start feeling how powerful it can be.
