Workshops include a presentation regarding the science of cold water immersion and cyclical hyperventilation. Two acute stressors that significantly improve cognitive performance and physical health. Cold immersion training, also known as cold water immersion or cold water therapy, is the exposure to cold water for a short period of time. It reduces inflammation, improves cardiovascular function, boosts the immune system, decreases stress and speeds up recovery after injuries or workouts. It optimizes metabolism by converting white fat into brown fat and floods the body with neurotransmitters that positively impact mood, motivation and focus. It's appropriate to think of as an extreme form of exercise. In fact, it is the only form of exercise (or drug) on the market that can boost the bodies catecholamines 2-3x through a simple thirty second to one minute protocol. Another benefit of cold water immersion is learning how to relax in the midst of stress. Through consistent practice, one learns how to master the stress response. This adapted response transfers over into other domains, thus improving quality of life.
Workshops include a series of guided breathwork techniques from a licensed professional. One of these techniques is known as cyclical hyperventilation. This consists of a series of deep breaths followed by a retention that triggers the release of large amounts of adrenaline into the body. This gives the practitioner access into their autonomic nervous system, as well as a familiarity of the onset of adrenaline rushes while in a safe and controlled environment. Not only is adrenaline released into the bloodstream, but cell messaging proteins and endorphins flood the body as well. This directly influences the innate immune system. Many people have reported a deep sense of relaxation during the breath retention portion of the exercise, as well as a profound sense of well-being. This breathwork has been scientifically proven to fight off viruses and reduce acute and chronic inflammation. These deep breathing exercises are intense and require the guidance of a trained professional.
