HOW TO PREPARE:

At this stage you have the basic understanding of the breathing physiology. To get the most out of this workshop you should regularly practice the basic WHM breathing exercise.

You also have some experience in cold exposure. If you would like to make the most out of the two icebath sessions you should regularly expose yourself to the cold. It’s not about how long you can stay under a cold shower but being aware how your body is reacting to the changes in temperature. The advanced workshop is not about pushing the limits but getting a deeper understanding of how your body regulates temperature. Shorter and less intensive cold sessions are advised but with more attention.

Everyone can participate to their own ability and level of comfort. No pressure, just fun day of new experiences and learning. If you have any health conditions or concerns please contact us beforehand and/or check with your doctor. 

It is best to eat something light before the workshop.
