By going back into nature you get back to your own nature. One step at a time, increasing connection within and between people.
I’m passionate about positive change and personal development. I’m a father of four, BackToYourNature coach, outdoor lover, cold fan, conscious breather, and an avid trail runner.
As a child I’ve always been interested in how things work. Growing older I became more and more interested in how people ‘work’. This resulted in a study neuropsychology and a subsequent PhD in neuropsychology. I’ve worked in the academic world teaching and practising science for more than 15 years before I encountered Wim and his work.
I was immediately intrigued by this man swimming in the arctic between ice. Shortly after I entered the CoolChallenge as one of the participants and started taking cold showers. This opened up a whole new level of energy and control over my own system to me. My energy levels increased, my resting heart rate decreased, my breathing became more efficient, my focus deeper, and I haven’t been ill since I started my ‘cold journey’. The logical next step was joining the Academy to become a Wim Hof Method Instructor. This has significantly deepened my knowledge and experience in the fields of breathing, focus, cold, and life in general.
And since 2017 I'm one of the Wim Hof Method Academy instructors. One of the most honorable jobs I can imagine, training new instructors with a cool team together with Wim.
In daily life I run my own company in which I help people to reconnect with themselves and live the life they were always ment to live. I love to inspire people to lead a happy and healthy life. I focus on combining the ‘newer’ evidence based knowledge from the western world and the ‘older’ experience based knowledge from the eastern world. Topics such as vulnerability, self love, empowerment, increasing self-awareness, thinking and feeling outside old conditioned boxes, improving balance, taking back control over your own life, and breaking dysfunctional patterns form the basis of my work.
I cant wait to share the lessons I’ve learned with you, take you back to your own nature, and help you to lead a more balanced and happy life!
Lets get back to your nature!
