“We can do more than what we think." - Wim Hof
Northern Ireland's premier Wim Hof Method Workshop with certified instructor, Scott Riley. Become Healthy, Happy & Strong with these benefits and more:
Reduce stress levels
This workshop focuses on the fundamental Three Pillars of the Wim Hof Method:
MINDSET · BREATH-WORK · THE COLD
Discover what it takes to find calm in a stressful environment like extreme cold, and how to apply that to your daily life. Take a guided meditation to build focus.
Work on your breathing mechanics and find an optimal pattern for both active practice of the WHM and passive breathing practice in the rest of your day.
Put all you learn to the test by getting into the ice bath. Use the breath to regain composure in the cold & access heightened focus to warm up, post-dip.
13.00 - 16.00: Breathwork, Mindset & Ice Bath
16.00 - 17.00: Hang Out and Explore Wildfoot
*N.B. Schedule will vary for workshops at locations other than Wildfoot
WHAT TO EXPECT
Expect to be challenged and have fun. Learn through experience by doing. Mini lectures of no more than 20mins explaining the science of what's happening on a biological level will be broken up by breath-work & movement.
If you have any major heart/health conditions please consult a physician before practicing the method. If you are pregnant or have epilepsy you cannot attend the workshop.
Take cold showers, increasing exposure time gradually. Start with a warm shower then turn it fully cold for 15 seconds to begin. Over the coming days, increase to 30, then 60 seconds. You do not need to submerge your head.
Aim to fast for at least 3 to 4 hours before the workshop to get the most from the breathwork practice. You can bring a snack for after this section. Eat well after the workshop as you'll have burnt a high amount of calories in the cold.
WHAT TO WEAR
Gym / yoga attire is ideal for moving around. Bring swimwear, a towel and flip flops for the ice bath. Warm clothes are recommended for afterwards. Please refrain from wearing any perfumes/colognes or scented skin care products.
WHAT IF I'M DOING / HAVE COMPLETED THE 10-WEEK ONLINE COURSE?
This is an ideal opportunity to get personal coaching on the techniques to ensure you're getting the most from your at-home practice. Practicing as a group is also hugely beneficial for reasons I'll get into at the workshop.
