Join, certified Wim Hof Method instructor Farid Hashemi, as we experience the three pillars of the Wim Hof Method; breathing, mindset, and cold exposure at Vault Crossfit in Los Angeles.
In this workshop, we will cover breathing mechanics, the Wim Hof Method breathing technique, mindset and meditation practice, yoga postures and exercises, and make the cold our warm friend as Wim would say!
My practice with the WHM began in December 2015 when I first trained with the Iceman in the mountains of Poland. We hiked barefoot in snow and ice. We climbed the highest frozen mountain in Poland and Czech Republic in our shorts. We supressed the ego and unlocked our innate human power. Most impoortantly, I found myself during an intense breathing session. I knew then, I had to teach the method. Over the past year of being a Certified WHM Instructor, I have taught many workshops all over the world with people of all backgrounds. Coming from a science based background as well as being a personal trainer, I am keen on teaching good technique to help build a solid practice.
Wim Hof Method
A way to use the power of Oxygen and cold exposure; two natural resources that used to be part of our everyday lives throughout most of our evolutionary history, but that have been almost compleltely lost to the comforts of modern society. With the WHM you can unlock the potential that lies dormant inside your DNA, and open the door to an array of health benefits.
- Increase energy

- Improve immune response of the body
- Improve respiratory and cardiovascular efficiency
- Improve athletic performance and recovery
Cold Exposure Benefits:
- Brown fat activation (metabolic fat)
- Fat loss
- Strengthened immune system
- Improve sleep quality
- Reduce inflammation; chronic and acute
- Feel good!
Mindset / Focus
Using the breath and cold exposure to take conscious control of the body requires dedication, patience and understanding. This provides us with the ability to master the body and in particular, the mind.
I look forward to sharing this powerful practice with my fellow Angelinos!
