About the event
Join us in learning and practicing the advanced techniques of the Wim Hof Method with a CERTIFIED Instructor who has trained with Wim. There will be a brief presentation of the latest journals published regarding the method, and then we will dive right into advanced breathwork guaranteed to fill your body with adrenaline. After a debreif, we will go right into a special type of breathwork that significantly warms the body. Wim has used this breathwork to raise his core body temperature at freezing levels. IF you want to learn how to use your mind, breath and body to warm yourself while sitting still, you'll definitely want to come and check this out.
After a short break, we go into a brief presentation about how we can challenge ourselves safely and effectively with cold-water immersion in order to recover and rebuild. Prior experience with cold-water immersion is recommended, however not necessary. Participants can take an ice bath anywhere from 2 minutes - 10 minutes. If they really want a challenge, there will be unique exercises to push the limits. All in all, if someone is interested in breathwork and mindset they will benefit a ton from this workshop and they do not need a background in cold-water immersion.
After this workshop, you will leave with a complete understanding of how to implement breathwork and cold-water immersion into your daily routine to optimize health and performance. You will know how to breathe while speaking, lifting, running, walking, and of course while performing breathwork practices that have revolutionized our understanding of how the body works. At advanced workshops, we take it seriously and work hard while simultaneously have a great time and make it fun! Mindset is everything.
Workshops are limited to 25 participants, which allows for an intimate quality with personalized instruction.

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.

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.

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!

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.
