Wim Hof method
I have always been interested in alternative methods for bio-hacking myself. Many years ago I established movement for „cold” lovers and created school „Rūdīšanās skola” and now I run trainings for different people around the world to expand their comfort zone physically and mentally, making them believe in themselves and their abilities to breakthrough perceived limits.
The one of the methods what I will share with you will be The Wim Hof method which is based on three powerful pillars:
1) – Breathing – The first pillar of the Wim Hof method is breathing. We’re always breathing, yet we’re mostly unaware of its tremendous potential. Heightened oxygen levels hold a treasure trove of benefits, and the specialized breathing technique of the Wim Hof Method unearths them all: more energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune response that swiftly deals with pathogens.
2) – Cold – The cold is your warm friend and one of the three pillars of the Wim Hof method. Proper exposure to the cold starts a cascade of health benefits, including the buildup of brown adipose tissue and resultant fat loss, reduced inflammation that facilitates a fortified immune system, balanced hormone levels, improved sleep quality, and the production of endorphins— the feel-good chemicals in the brain that naturally elevate your mood.
3) – The third pillar of the Wim Hof method is the foundation of the other two: both cold exposure and conscious breathing require patience and dedication in order to be fully mastered. Armed with focus and determination you are ready to explore and eventually master your own body and mind
I am very excited about teaching others and participating in this event as it’s a great way to show people how to take control of their health and as well have fun in this journey. We will be seeking for comfort within discomfort to become stronger and happier that before!
