This was my first experience with the Wim Hof Method and cold exposure. It was great to learn up front what is happening in the body and how you can control it. Learning the breathing and techniques was a first for me but you really do feel something and once you get into the cold it's hard to breathe at first but using the techniques that Rob taught us you gain control and eventually get conformable in there, it was awesome.
I've had ice water baths and cold water showers before, but this workshop took it to a whole different level. The stimulus and stress on my body was a lot more then I've had in the past and through Coach Robert guidance my experience and practice was more direct and purposeful
A great presentation and class. Built a background to my little exposure to the Wim Hof Method. The cold experience was painful but practicing the mindfulness and breath it all faded away.
It was really cool, I have asthma and time to time I can't control my breath, but in there I was able to calm down and take normal breaths while under stress. It was eye-opening for me, that you can control everything. Thanks Rob
If you're someone who feels out of control all of the time, this is a nice escape because in there (the ice bath) you are in control and also relaxed, it's crazy, but it happened.
It was scary at first, but it really works. I got calmer and calmer through the breathing practice and all I could hear was Rob's coaching and my breath.
The beginning was all about trusting in you Rob to bring me through this. For me to be doing this and crack a smile and enjoy who I am now is amazing, I'll be back to learn more and I appreciate you.
This was the first time I've ever had to do something like this and one of the hardest things was for me to get into the ice and stay in there, I didn't know what to think and all I did was focus on my breath. I started meditating and focused on my breathing, and all the bad stuff just disappeared...an incredible experience.
It was great, I think for people who have not meditated before or haven't gotten as deep as they want to its great. It forces you into that headspace, release your mind and surrender.
It really taught me how to control my mind to get over the pain, I forgot about everything else and really focused on my breathing.
My experience was great, it was an exercise in controlling the mind and how we can gain control over the obstacles we deal with, and physiological benefits are amazing, I'm definitely doing it again.
