With Jeff Sorensen
12pm - 5pm
Join Jeffrey C Sorensen and the breathARMY community as we dive into the fundamentals of the Wim Hof Method at Pranify Yoga Kelowna! Known as "The Iceman", Wim Hof got his name by breaking a number of world records, including climbing to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and into the Death Zone of Mount Everest in his shorts and sandals, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle in his bare feet, a full marathon in the Namib Desert with no water and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes. His scientifically proven methods have been known to reduce stress and inflammation, increase energy, improve sports performance and speed up recovery, facilitate better sleep, increase focus and mental clarity, strengthen the immune system, and much more. In this workshop you will learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof method: breathing, cold exposure & commitment/mindset.
Jeff will help you understand the science and physiology of utilizing these three pillars to optimize both body & mind.
The event will begin with a discussion of the history and science of the method along with movement to connect to the body, a guided breathing session and optional ice bath.
We will also discuss how to implement these simple and accessible tools into your life in an intelligent way to create dramatic mental, physical and spiritual transformation.
