Introduction Workshop Completion
Great job completing your introduction workshop for the Wim Hof Method! Hope you're feeling awesome and enjoying that wave of relaxation and relief after a great workout for your respiratory and circulatory systems.
Here's a recap on what we went through:
Breathwork - Getting comfortable, able to expand lungs freely without constriction. It is recommended to do this before eating or right after you wake up.
30 deep breaths in short powerful bursts at a steady pace using your midriff fully. You could experience some light-headedness or tingling sensations in the body.
After 30 breaths, draw the breath in once more, filling to max capacity, then let the air out and hold as long as you can without force until you experience the gasp reflex.
Recovery breath with one full inhale, holding for about 15 seconds.
This is one round, you can repeat 3/4 times. Take your time to enjoy the feelings afterward, similar to a meditation session.
Once you feel good, you can start with cold exposure.
Cold Exposure - It is very important to try to relax as much as you can and be with the cold. As Wim says, "The cold is your warm friend!"
Always begin with your feet and then higher towards the rest of your body. An initial shock will come, and you could experience shivering and gasp reflexes kicking in, which is normal. Try to remain calm and breathe easily. Close your eyes and really try to embrace the cold.
Cold exposure works like weight lifting, you get stronger over time as little muscles around your veins contract with cold exposure, strengthening in just 1-2 weeks to become healthier and reducing the force your heart requires to pump blood around the body.
Afterwards, do some basic exercises to improve blood flow. This could be the horse stance, yoga stretches, or if you can, try some balancing poses.

You may place orders with us as instructed on our Platform. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. If we are unable to accept your order, we will let you know in writing and will not charge you for the Product ordered. This might be because: (a) the Product ordered is out of stock; (b) there are unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for; (c) we have identified an error in the price or description of the Product; or (d) we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. We will assign an order number to each order. Please tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order. Our Platform is solely for the promotion of our Products in Singapore. We will provide the Products at such time or during such period as set out in our confirmation email. If our supply of the Products is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay, you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received. If you do not allow us access to your property to perform the services as arranged (and you do not have a good reason for this), we may charge you additional costs incurred by us as a result.

We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
