About Allan Brownlie
Certified Wim Hof Method Instructor and Breathing Coach
We live in these unique digital times, where a world of endless information and possibilities is available at the touch of our fingertips. Which is great – but it made me realise some years ago, that I didn’t truly understand my mind and my body. I came to a stage in my life where I was emotionally drained, underweight and ready to abandon the unhealthy lifestyle I had developed over the years. That’s when my quest to find myself began, and I discovered the Wim Hof Method (WHM).
When I tried the different WHM breathing techniques for the first time, I realized ‘WOW, THIS IS IT!’. My breath became my foundation, my balance and my compass for building momentum and confidence. I optimized my lifestyle and conquered the cold. With the help of a range of easy to learn techniques I was able to become a better version of my old self. Today, I feel like I can trust my body and mind again.
I was part of the first international group of people to become a certified Wim Hof Method Instructor. It helped me to become extremely focussed and creative, with improved fitness levels. Using Wim Hof’s method, my body and mind learned to cope with natural stresses they endure when I’m out and about, and it has allowed me to establish a genuine connection with nature. This resulted in being able to climb the highest mountain of the Outer Hebrides (Scotland) and two impressive mountains in Poland, bare chested wearing only shorts, in weather conditions of -10 to -15 degrees Celsius.
Trust me: I’m not special. Anyone can do this, if you are willing to dig deep into your physiology using the great techniques of the Wim Hof Method. It’s simple, it’s effective and the science backs it up.
I’m looking forward to meeting you during one of my workshops or retreats. If you have any questions in the meantime, please do get in touch. I’m more than happy to help.
