The Wim Hof Method

I have often mentioned the Wim Hof Method in our classes. Wim Hof (a man) is also known as the ‘Iceman’ due to his belief that cold is something that we can draw energy from and should feel rather than shy away from. Exposure to the cold (suggested in his book as being introduced gently after your normal shower) is actually proven to improve health by fortifying our immune system.

There are 2 other concepts that Wim uses – that of deep breathing (rather like our 3 part breath) and control of our minds via a commitment to do the cold showers and deep breathing. I like it!

As part of his campaign to spread the Wim Hof Method he has produced a TV series on the BBC with celebrities’ trying it out – you can watch it on the link below and see what you think.
