Fitness in the Garden with Ben Pelton

Ben Pelton is a philosopher, fitness consultant and mobility specialist who teaches dynamic training systems developed for postural correction.  In the first of Ben’s videos, he shares exercises that can immediately enhance one’s quality of life. Learn about Wim ‘Iceman’ Hof and his method of breathing and cold water constitutional therapy that pushes the limits of everyday wellness. The Wim Hof Method is a technique that gives people more control over their body and mind through a natural sequence of breathing and focused awareness.  The power of this method is the simplicity and efficiency in reconnecting the mind and body through breathing. Ben also teaches about a new process for evaluating and correcting joint tissue health.  Lastly, Ben finishes by demonstrating simple exercises that will begin to stabilize the core musculature and the spine.  It is of utmost importance to emphasize that the focus of a healthy posture begins with stabilizing the core. Look for more fitness videos with Ben as we explore ways of developing long term wellness in the garden and everyday life.

Warning – important message, please read carefully:
The breathing exercise has a profound effect and should be practiced in the way it is explained. Always do the breathing exercise in a safe environment (e.g. sitting on a couch/floor) and unforced. Never practice the exercises before or during diving, driving, swimming, taking a bath or in any other environment/place where, should you pass out, a serious injury could occur. Wim Hof breathing may cause tingling sensations and/or lightheadedness. If you faint, that means you went too far. Take a step back next time.
