You leave feeling relax, emotionally balanced and a for self care.

Wim Hof Fundamentals

December 11, 2021 11am - 4pm

Join Jeffrey C Sorensen and the breathARMY community as we dive into the fundamentals of the Wim Hof Method!!!

Known as "The Iceman", Wim Hof got his name by breaking a number of world records, including climbing to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and into the Death Zone of Mount Everest in his shorts and sandals, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle in his bare feet, a full marathon in the Namib Desert with no water and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.

His scientifically proven methods have been known to reduce stress and inflammation, increase energy, improve sports performance and speed up recovery, facilitate better sleep, increase focus and mental clarity, strengthen the immune system, and much more.

In this workshop you will learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof method: breathing, cold exposure & commitment. Jeff will help you understand the science and physiology of utilizing these three pillars to optimize both body & mind.

The event will begin with a discussion of the history and science of the method and will be followed by a guided breathing session offering you the opportunity to go deep into your physiology.

Following the breathing session, we will discuss the science of the breathing method and of cold exposure, we will prepare the ice baths together and discuss the pillar of mindset.

Movement will prepare us for the ice bath. The ice bath is optional and will be closely guided by Jeff. Following the ice bath we will warm up with more movement and discuss how to implement the method into your life.

$150/person
