About the event

Join us in learning and practicing the Wim Hof Method with a Certified Level 2 Wim Hof Method Instructor who is good friends with Wim.  This advanced workshop is a very rare and unique opportunity.  Tim is the only WHM instructor in the State of Michigan and very seldomly offers advanced workshops.  At this event, participants will learn how to go deep into their mind and fill their bodies with heat through manipulating the breath.  We will cover multiple types of advanced breathwork and have opportunities for a variety of cold exposure exercises (there will also be a guided fundamentals breathing session to start).  

The amount and type of cold-water immersion (CWI) is completely up to the practitioner.  It's good to have some experience with breathwork and CWI,  but if you don't have any and would still like to attend you are more than welcome.  In fact, we have had participants come to advanced workshops with no prior knowledge or experience with CWI and do great! 

Yen Yoga & Fitness is a beautiful venue connected to the Delamar Hotel downtown Traverse City.  We will practice cold-water immersion on an alluring sandy beach of Lake Michigan, just a short walk from the studio.   Sauna on site open for use afterward (sessions included with purchase of workshop ticket)!

The day consists of learning the latest science, group discussions, laughing, guided breathwork, light exercise, organic snacks, warm beverages, and natural cold-water immersion in Lake Michigan!  You will get personal coaching guaranteed to help you tolerate the cold better.  You may even leave excited to do some winter swimming!

Workshops are limited to 25 participants, which allows for an intimate quality with personalized instruction. The program starts with an introduction/recap/new scientific findings of the method followed by breathing protocols and breath work.  After a short break, we reconvene and start our cold exposure training.  There is time for discussion / Q & A afterward with the instructor.

Combine a committed mindset, breathwork and cold exposure to unlock a cascade of health benefits:

- Improved Immune System

- Increased Energy

- Boosted Mood

- Heightened Focus and Determination

- Reduced Stress Levels

- Dealing with Fear and Challenges

- Improved Sports Performance

- Greater Cold Tolerance

Certified Wim Hof Method Instructor, Tim Mann, is also a Licensed Professional Counselor who brings a unique skill set to these workshops. It is vital to understand that Tim is not offering these workshops as a Mental Health Professional, but rather as a Peak-Performance Coach. If you suffer from mental illness and are looking to alleviate symptoms through utilizing the Wim Hof Method, Tim recommends consulting with your primary care physician or therapist.

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 and embrace the cold. This changes your nervous systems reaction to the cold (stress) and carries over into the way we handle stress in other situations.

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. People with cardiovascular issues, or any other serious health conditions should always consult a medical professional before starting the Wim Hof Method.

What to bring: Wear comfortable work-out clothes. Bring a water bottle, yoga mat, notebook (if that’s your style), swimsuit, towel, flip-flops and an open mind.

What you get: To unlock the incredible benefits of breathwork and cold exposure to optimize health and performance for the rest of your life!

What people are saying:

Tim Mann did an unbelievable job educating our athletes on the pillars of breathwork and developing a mind and body connection. He developed a knowledge base that allowed the athletes to use as they entered the breathing and plunging sessions. His passion and expertise is evident when he coaches a session and he makes sure everyone is performing the techniques properly.

Very informative, well run and well delivered seminar! As a CrossFit Masters athlete everything presented today will be used going forward in my competitive training. Thanks Tim!

- Craig Fegan, CrossFit Masters Athlete

This is my second workshop with Tim as the instructor and he is absolutely amazing! His energy is super comforting, while his voice is soothing. I love how he presents all of the science behind the Wim Hof Method, erasing any doubts from the minds of attendees. Incorporating his personal journey and how this has helped him, is a powerful piece of his presentation! There's no doubt that Tim is meant to be sharing and teaching this method with others! We will offer to host or attend as many workshops as we can get him to offer in our neck of the woods!

- Randy Buchler, Owner of Shady Grove Farm U.P.

Such a great experience with Tim! He has an amazing story of how he got to where he is now and it is so inspirational to see his passion for this work come to life. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was comfortable during the event and I can't recommend his workshops enough. I am so excited to see his visions for future workshops unfold and I know he will make a positive impact on anyone he comes in contact with.

From the moment I shook hands with Tim Mann, I knew that I was destined for a very special day indeed. He was completely present and focused on the very moment and I could feel a connection and energy that allayed any fears or trepidation that I had carried with me to the training. Was I too old for such a challenge? I could certainly be more fit…Would I just embarrass myself? Will I simply be an awkward participant? All of those feelings, real or imagined, departed in a simple moment of introduction. It’s a rare gift today, in a society so enveloped and smothered by the technology carried in our pockets, to be able to penetrate that superficial layer and communicate directly with another human…Tim has that gift. I could see the connection that he made with every single person throughout the training….it was amazing to witness. I knew that I was right where I was meant to be. Once my mind was open and free of the superfluous clutter, the training was life altering. This is just a start, an open door to a deeper consciousness that I will continue to pursue with vigor. Thank You to Tim and his support crew for making this an incredible day of enlightenment and enrichment.
