Join us at Living Web Farms for another powerful Wim Hof Method Fundamentals Workshop with certified WHM Instructor Benjamin Pelton. The Wim Hof Method is most notable for its simplicity and effectiveness. The method consists of three pillars; breathing exercises, cold exposure and mindset/focus.
These ancient practices have been known for centuries to provide health benefits individually. What Wim has done is combined the power of breathing exercises, meditation/mindfulness and cold exposure to bring happiness, strength and health to an all-new level. Or Wim is just reminding the modern human of the innate abilities we have within each of us.
Isabel Hof: “Wim Hof has trained his body and spirit in hard natural environments, particularly under conditions of extreme cold. Under these circumstances, breathing and mindset enhance the ability to withstand such extreme temperatures. Through enhancing his resilience in the face of extreme conditions using these techniques, Wim has been able to constantly explore his own physiology and mental capacity in greater detail. In doing so, he has continually developed and perfected his method over the years, constantly shifting his goalposts higher and higher. Wim’s impressive performance, especially under cold conditions, have earned him fame, along with the nick-name “The Iceman”. In the meantime he has accumulated almost 20 world records, including the longest ice bath, climbing snowy mountain peaks wearing only shorts, running marathons around the polar circle, as well as many others. In 2007 Wim Hof was examined by the well-known Feinstein Institute. The results showed that Wim Hof appeared to be able to influence his autonomic nervous system. From this moment onwards, Wim Hof made it his goal to share the possibilities offered by his method with the world. He also sought further cooperation with the scientific community to study the possibilities resulting from his method”.
