If you can learn how to use your mind, anything is possible

-Wim Hof

 

Diaphragmatic Breathing

When we breathe properly, the following things happen:

a. We have more energy.

b. Our stress levels are reduced.

c. Our muscles perform at an optimal level, giving us a higher level of performance in sports.

d. Our immune system improves.

e. We have more focus and mental clarity.

f. We sleep better.

g. We can physically recover faster.


The Wim Hof Method is another approach to breathing and wellbeing.

Wim Hof, also known as The Iceman, is a Dutch extreme athlete noted for his ability to withstand freezing temperatures. He has set Guinness world records for swimming under ice and prolonged full-body contact with ice, and still holds the record for a barefoot half-marathon on ice and snow.


The Wim Hof Method is built on three pillars, which are breathing, cold therapy and commitment. His three pillars combine breathing, exposure to cold, and meditation.


It’s essentially:

Breathing = calm,


Cold 🥶= reduce inflammation and swelling,


Meditation = will power and self control.


On their own, each has its own benefits.

Hof combines the three to create his Wim Hof method.
