Wim HofWhether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to an illness, or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about— a Wim Hof Method workshop offers something for everyone.

The program starts in our beautiful glass fronted studio with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, followed by a breathing session, some stretching (Michelle has been teaching yoga since 2004) a short break, and then an (optional) ice bath. At the end there is ample room for reflection, and Michelle is there to answer questions throughout the workshop. After this you are welcome to enjoy our stunning glass fronted sauna, a soak in our outdoor hot tub and a hot cup of tea.

Ashtanga WeekendIf you have no prior experience with cold exposure, we recommend you finish your showers with cold water in the days leading up to the workshop. This may be overwhelming at first, but just try to relax, focus on your breath, and bring it into a controlled, steady rhythm.

This workshop is suitable for everyone, but does require a basic level of health. Out of precaution, we advise against participation during pregnancy, or if you are epileptic.
