Wim Hof Method workshop London - Joren de Bruin

"I did a workshop with Joren on April 30 2017 and it was superb. Everything about it was just right; the mix of people, the laid back atmosphere, the information provided, the logical explanations of the science behind how the method works, the motivation and inspiration given, the venue itself, the food provided - it was all ideal and there's not a thing that would have improved the experience. I definitely recommend Joren's workshops for anybody that would like to learn the Wim Hof method."

- Tony Winyard

Learning & having fun together, Improving you're overal quality of life, conscious awareness, deal better with stress, more energy, experience deep inner peace, and enhance your physical and mental prowess: that to me is the essence of the Wim Hof Method. - Joren de Bruin

Because of my positive experience with the WHM, I’ve made it my mission to share these simple yet powerful techniques with whoever is interested. With a history in professional sports (soccer & futsal), a background in applied psychology, and more then four years of experience in practicing the WHM, I now internationally gained experience in sharing these simple yet powerful techniques with the world. 

            I found this method after having fallen prey to a hernia. After one and a half years of ever-increasing pain, loss of physical abilities, and ultimately no remedies from the world of conventional medicine, I felt after just one meeting with Wim that these techniques might offer a solution. The techniques proved very effective indeed, and their application was remarkably simple to boot.

After a month of complete collaboration of body and mind, I noticed that the pain subsided and I regained full freedom of movement. This is still true to this day. It was an experience that gave me a better ear for the signals my body was sending me, and how to turn them into my ally. I conquered fears, relieved pain, was able to minimize stress, gain more energy, shorten the recovery process for various (sport) injuries, and increase my mental and physical endurance.

I’ve since had the privilege to personally support Wim for years during his workshops and travels and became a certified Instructor. I apply elements of the WHM in my daily life for various (health-related) instances and have been leading international groups of people from all over the world. It’s been a special, illuminating journey, full of new insights and still learning every day. The journey inwards continues to be a daily breath of fresh air and my enthusiasm to bring this method to others has only grown bigger.

Workshop

Within this workshops I'll share you my knowledge and experience and there will be plenty of room for personal attention and feedback, but in which the application and experience of the Wim Hof Method is the central feature. You'll learn various breathing- and concentration techniques, directly possible to apply once being back home. Also we'll tap into how you can integrate the WHM in your daily life to maintain a rhythm of regular practice. We'll top off the day with the possibilty to experience the icebath under my guidance. A possibilty to experience profound control within your own mind-body connection. All on feeling & with full care, releasing your own innerpowers, while having fun and rediscovering we're able to do more then we think we can!

"Thanks to Joren i had the chance to discover new ways of understanding my own body, the Wim Hof method is something that definitively has a strong and positive impact on someone's health and peace of mind. The workshop it self is filled with positive energy, empathy, love and of course the breathing technique exercises.

Joren's way of teaching and communicating makes you feel comfortable, during every little second spent. At the workshop i felt 100% relaxed and present, the experience was REAL and i was happy also to share my space, words and air with everyone in the room. Can't wait to experience this again!" - Enzo Mercedes
