Weekly classes: Wim Hof Method
When I was an international basketball player, I loved going to training. It was a way of improving my skills, learning more and preparing for the challenges ahead. I think that is why I am so excited about our weekly Wim Hof Method classes.
UPDATE: weekly classes have now come to an end. There are loads of other ways to learn the Wim Hof Method in Ireland. Find out more.
For beginners, the classes are a great introduction to the method. For more advanced practitioners, they'll get the chance to practise regularly under the guidance of an expert instructor. Everyone will learn more, deepen their understanding of the method and face the challenge of the ice bath (if they feel ready for it).
If you have any questions, please email me.
Starting on Saturday 1 September, we will be running weekly classes every Saturday afternoon in Booterstown Community and Arts Centre, Dublin. We start at 6pm and will finish an hour later.
Beginners are very welcome.
€20 per class.
Practise makes perfect
During the class, we'll be discussing the different aspects of the method, doing some profound breathing, learning how to approach the cold, getting into the ice bath (optional) and much more.
What should I bring to the classes?
You'll need to bring a yoga / pilates mat. A towel, flip flops and swim wear for getting into the ice bath. And please wear comfortable clothes as we will be moving and stretching.
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.
