6 days - WIM HOF RETREAT in the Magical Westfjords of ICELAND

Cold Therapy | Breath | Mindset | Movement

You are invited into a space of self-discoveries in a pristine location!

What if there was a way to tap into our inner abilities, our forgotten inner knowledge, and regain conscious control, not only over the deeper parts of the brain but to all systems? Away from the suppression of feelings/emotions, therefore living with less stress, more vitality and joy.

The Wim Hof Method is built on three pillars, which are breathing, cold therapy and commitment. Combined, these three pillars form a powerful method that is capable of changing your life.

Proper exposure to the cold starts a cascade of health benefits. The breathing technique brings back the awareness of the tremendous potential for more energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune response. And the third pillar of the Wim Hof Method is the foundation of the other two: both 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.

The Westfjords of Iceland offers a unique experience like no other. A location to disconnect from everything and tap into your innate abilities, while being surrounded by the most remarkable nature in Iceland; with beautiful waterfalls, including Dynjandi waterfall, lakes, captivating seabird cliffs and pristine nature, where every fjord and mountain is competing for your attention.

What you will discover:

  • Understanding and excelling your mind-body connection
  • Breathing for optimal health
  • Cold Exposure. The art of letting go in tough situations.
  • Using cold as a mental and physical health tool
  • Mindful movement. Understanding how your body works
  • The power of group synergy
  • The unlimited battery charge that Icelandic nature offers

Cold Therapy is suited for anyone that would like to challenge and explore their own innate capabilities. It is also a powerful tool to address the following:

  • For Endurance
  • For Optimal Health
  • For Chronic Pain

Suitable for anyone, over 18 years old, that has the call to join this adventure.
