Frequently asked questions
What should I bring to the event?
You'll need to bring a yoga / pilates mat. A towel, flip flops and swim wear for getting into the ice bath. Plus, a light blanket - sometimes people get cold during the breathing exercises. And please wear comfortable clothes as we will be moving and stretching.
Do I need to prepare for the workshop?
When you sign up for the workshop, I will send you an information pack. It would be great if you could read through that before the workshop. In that will be a cold shower challenge. Don't worry: it will take less than a minute per day to complete! Also, health declaration and informed consent forms for you to fill-out.
How do I practise the method safely?
The breathing exercise has a profound effect and should be practised in the way it is explained. Always do the breathing exercise in a safe environment (e.g. sitting on a couch/floor) and unforced. Never practise the exercises before or during diving, driving, swimming, taking a bath or in any other environment/place where, should you pass out, a serious injury could occur. Wim Hof breathing may cause tingling sensations and/or lightheadedness. If you’ve fainted, it means that you went too far. Take a step back next time.
The cold is a powerful force. We strongly advise to gradually build up exposing yourself to the cold. Always train without force and listen to your body carefully. If it is not practised responsibly, there is a risk of hypothermia.
Do not practise the method during pregnancy or if you're epileptic. People with cardiovascular health issues, or any other (serious) health conditions, should always consult a medical doctor before starting the Wim Hof Method.
