Activities with Instructors
To meet the growing demand for personalized Wim Hof Method teaching and guidance, certified WHM Instructors teach the Wim Hof Method under official license all over the world. Qualified and capable, they host a range of different WHM activities.
Use the interactive map or do a filtered search to find the right WHM activity for you. Get expert knowledge, personal guidance, and immediate feedback. Whether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to a health condition, or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about— there’s something to be found for everyone.
Every WHM activity will be accompanied by up to three icons:
These indicate the emphasis for that particular activity. In many cases, these will be the default ‘ice bath’, ‘breathing’ icons, et cetera. However Instructors may also incorporate disciplines that are complementary to the Wim Hof Method. In these cases, you will see icons representing yoga, or meditation, for example.
A second set of icons can be found on the Instructors’ profile pages.
These reflect the Instructors’ background or area of expertise— e.g. ‘physician’ or ‘fitness coach’.
Use these icons to find the right WHM activity for you. You can always reach out to an Instructor via the contact form on the activity page for more information, or engage with them in the WHM community.
A complete list of icons and their signification can be found here.
Workshop — Fundamentals
This is an entry level workshop intended for beginners and curious newcomers.
All facets of the Wim Hof Method will be covered. You find out how oxygen and cold put beneficial stresses on your body, learn how the mind can be controlled, and engage in a variety of breathing and cold therapy activities.
These workshops are capped to 25 participants, in order to guarantee an intimate quality that allows for ample personal attention, and feedback tailored to your specific situation.
Workshop — Advanced
If you already have some experience with the Wim Hof Method —maybe you’ve joined [[one of our live events]] or you use the [[WHM app]] for you daily breathing exercises— but would like to dive a little deeper with the help of some professional guidance, an Advanced Workshop may be just what you’re looking for.
With a basic level of WHM familiarity understood, the Instructor puts together a program suitable for participants who are not apprehensive about an ice bath of up to 10 minutes. You might venture out into a natural icy stream, or engage in a breathing session comprising several consecutive rounds. The goal here as always is not reckless daring, but careful, curious exploration.
An Advanced Workshop offers the same small scale intimacy of a Fundamentals Workshop, with the same close personal attention that is vital when exploring the depths of body and mind.
WHM Weekends are intended to offer a deeper exploration of the Wim Hof Method than what might be covered in a workshop. You’ll learn and practice everything you would in an advanced workshop on the first day, then use the overnight stay to reflect — alone and/or with the group.
Start the second day with a primed body and mind, a fresh perspective, and personal
direction from your Instructor.
Instructors may incorporate other activities that work in synergy with the Wim Hof Method —yoga, meditation, athletics, et cetera— based on their specialisation or area of expertise. Consult the Icons page for details.
Designed for those who do better with in-person training, a Group Course has you meet up with a WHM Instructor once per week, for 5 or 10 weeks total.
Learn the Wim Hof Method hands on in the group classes, then ingrain what you’ve learned through home practice during the week. Take any questions or issues that come up over the week, into the next session. This way you get personal feedback as you go, directly from your Instructor.
This format is ideal for people who like the direct contact afforded by a workshop, combined with the consistent, repeated practice of a video course. The group dynamic is also great for people who have trouble keeping themselves accountable.
WHM Travels are the biggest, most comprehensive Wim Hof Method activities on offer. Spend a full week embedded, away from distraction, to explore the limits of your body through the power of your mind.
The extended immersion allows for progressive WHM training in gorgeous natural environments. You rely on each other for the moments where you have to dig deep, and the lasting friendships are often touted as the most rewarding aspect of these trips.
Many who join are looking for new ways to push through their perceived physical or psychological limits. Some use it as an inward journey to process hardship or trauma. Others still are just always searching for the next novel experience to enrich their lives.
As a result, you are bound to hear the most incredible stories from the most colorful people, hailing from all over the world. Get unique perspectives on life, and be inspired to see your own in a new light.
Are you ready for a life-changing experience?
