ABOUT THE WEEK
This special WHM travel experience is somewhere in between an adventure trip, a retreat and a holiday with friends. Its a gift to yourself and a beautiful way of connecting with yourself, nature and others. Expect awesome people from all around the world - you will breath, move, play, icebath, meditate, relax together and challenge yourself. The aim is to learn, grow and to have fun :)
There will be 3 main pillars in this week: Wim Hof Method (with breathing, cold exposure and mindset), Movement and Nature Connection.
What will we do: - Breathwork: (WHM breathing and other breathing exercises)
- Movement: Movement games, mobility, movement challenges
- Cold exposure: The water is still cold enough to relax and get challenged😊
- Ways of increasing (body) awareness and (body) intuition
- Different ways of connecting to nature and training the senses
- Physical and mental challenges
- Hikes in nature
- Have a good time with nice people, campfire, music and much more😊
Special about this WHM travel is that it takes place in the summer, which creates different possibilities than a wintetravel. The cold is not as extreme as in the winter (but the water is still cold😊). We will do most of the activities outside and have different kinds of challenges than in a winter travel.
About Douwe: This dutchmen had his first cold challenges in a kung fu school in China and became one of the first WHM instructors. Douwe is a senior WHM instructor (Level 3), breath coach and movement teacher. As WHM instructor he is teaching retreats internationally including ‘teaching the teachers’ for the WHM Academy. Douwe teaches people in a playful way to explore body and mind. An emphasis on breathing, safety, body awareness and body intuition.
About Josephine: In a former life Josephine was a molecular biologist. Her fascination about science and the human body brought her to the Wim Hof Method. Apart from being a WHM instructor (Level 2), she is a yoga teacher, naturopath and author of a book about the cold. She is internationally teaching workshops and retreats. While she focuses on the feeling in her teaching, there are few people who understand the science behind it as well as she does.
The location: We are staying in a big house that can host up to 16 guests in Przesieka. Przesieka is a small village in Polish nature, close to the German and Czech border. It is a 3-4 hours car drive from Berlin and Leipzig (Germany) or Prague (Czech Republic). To plan your trip by train to Jelenia Gora (the next city with a train station), please use the website of Deutsche Bahn (https://reiseauskunft.bahn.de). Unfortunately Google Maps does not show the most convenient train connections. A taxi from Jelenia Gora to Przesieka costs around EUR 15.
