WIM HOF METHOD WORKSHOP

Saturday the 16th of Jan 2021 11h00 – 18h00 BOOK TICKETS

Put yourself in the expert hands of South Africa’s first (and only) certified Wim Hof Method (WHM) Instructor Alex Vliege and Helena Mercera (Yoga and meditation facilitator) to learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof Method:

:: Breathing Technique

:: Cold Exposure

:: Commitment

Find out how you can utilise oxygen and cold exposure to optimize body & mind, and learn about the underlying physiology. The intimate quality allows for ample personal attention, and feedback tailored to your specific situation.

WHY DO THE WIM HOF FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOP Whether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve anxiety or symptoms related to an illness, overcome your fears or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about – a WHM workshop offers something for everyone. The program kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, and includes a breathing session and ends with an (optional) ice bath. There is ample room for reflection, and the instructors are there to answer questions throughout the workshop.

ANY EXPERIENCE OR PREP NEEDED Nothing really: More info about the day is sent out upon registration. If you have no prior experience with cold exposure, we recommend you finish your showers cold in the days leading up to the workshop. This may be overwhelming at first, but just try to relax, focus on your breath, and bring it into a controlled, steady rhythm.

WHO IS THE WORKSHOP SUITABLE FOR: This workshop is suitable for everyone, but does require a basic level of health. Out of precaution, we advise against participation during pregnancy, or if you are epileptic. People with cardiovascular issues, or any other serious health conditions should always consult a medical professional before starting the Wim Hof Method.

Cost: R1650 – includes tea, snacks, refreshments, light lunch and (optional) ice bath

Venue: The Veld and Sea Glasshouse, Cape Point
