#WimRise is a free event for adventurous souls who want to breathe (using the Wim Hof Method) with the rising sun and then swim in the wild sea. #WimRise events take place throughout the year in different locations in Ireland.
We announce #WimRise events a few weeks in advance on Instagram. Follow Breathe With Niall on Instagram.
When’s the next #WImRise?
3 March. Learn more.
How do I practise the Wim Hof 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.
How it started
