The WimHof Experience
The WimHof method is a mindfulness technique that allows you to reconnect to the body’s inner wisdom, a wisdom often lost in today’s world. According to Wim, “Because we wear clothes and artificially control the temperatures at home and at work, we’ve greatly reduced the natural stimulation of our bodies, atrophying the age-old mechanisms related to our survival and basic function. Because these deeper physiological layers are no longer triggered, our bodies are no longer in touch with this inner power. The inner power is a powerful force that can be reawakened by stimulating these physiological processes through the Wim Hof Method.”
The training involves learning Wim’s unique breathing exercises reminiscent of Pranayama breathing in yoga, with the goal of helping us become happy, strong and healthy. Once trained, participants are invited to submerge themselves into an ice bath. Many of our guests, when first presented with the Wim Hof method, have no intention of challenging their body in this way. With few exceptions, however, most do enter the ice and are stunned at how easily they are able to manage the frigid temperatures.
