With Cornwall’s first & only level 2 certified WHM instructor, Samuel Boot
Discover the profound effects of the Wim Hof Method to optimise body & mind. Put yourself in the expert hands of Level 2 certified WHM Instructor Samuel Boot to learn the 3 pillars of the WHM: Breathing Technique, Cold Exposure & Meditation/Commitment & learn about the underlying physiology & philosophy behind the Wim Hof Method.
Sam was a brilliant instructor – I felt very safe and in good hands, his passion for the benefits of the method really shone through. I particularly enjoyed the way that the other aspects of the retreat came together to complement the Wim Hof work perfectly. The yoga, incredibly thoughtful food, and journey dance were the perfect complement to the more challenging cold aspects. This perfect combination of elements allowed all of us to connect to ourselves and each other on a deep level.
These workshops are limited to 12 participants, and instructors often choose to keep them much smaller. The intimate quality allows for ample personal attention, and feedback tailored to your specific situation. Whether 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 WHM workshop offers something for everyone.
The program generally kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, and always includes a breathing session and an (optional) ice bath. At the end there is ample room for reflection, and your instructor Sam will be there to answer questions throughout the workshop.
I arrived and was instantly reassured, that I was in a safe space and I could take part in as much or as little as I wanted. I ended up trying it all, Sam and Jana are truly inspiring, supportive and caring. Their knowledge was informative and fun.
Instructors have their own specializations, and there is some variation across the individual workshops. A detailed overview of the day with Sam is sent out upon registration.
If you have no prior experience with cold exposure, we recommend you finish your showers cold 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.
I came away completely inspired, stronger, determined and absolutely buzzing. Loved it, loved Sam and Jana, the venue, food, friends I made. Thoroughly recommend it to everyone, let your inhibitions go and become part of the Wim Hof gang.
Put yourself in the expert hands of qualified WHM Instructor Samuel Boot and Yoga Teacher Jana Virian to explore all facets of the Wim Hof Method and Holistic Health extensively to integrate into your daily life
This transformative experience will leave you with useful ‘tools’ & techniques to take away and integrate into your everyday life to help with health, wellbeing & overall perspective. The technique, theory & scientific research behind the Wim Hof Method will be discussed, however, the majority of the workshop will be a step-by-step instruction or, rather, developing a feeling for the practice and yourself. As Wim often says: “feeling is understanding.”
The focus of this weekend is your well-being which will be explored from a holistic health perspective.
