Event description

Description

Join local accredited Wim Hof practitioner, Piet Blokker, for this 1.5 hour introduction to the benefits and techniques of the Wim Hof Method. Developed by the Dutch Iceman himself, there are loads of health benefits from learning how to safely and gently expose yourself to cold water...and where better to do it than the Cradle Mountain Film Festival in late March?

The workshop includes instruction on gentle breathing, meditation and plenty of time for questions in a small group, then an opportunity to practice the techniques in the tannin-stained river (without a wetsuit)!

You will need warm, comfortable clothes, bathers, towel, drink bottle, a great sense of adventure and openness to try new things. Pre-existing medical conditions must be disclosed for safety, but this technique is suitable for everyone. Access to the river is by stairs, however anyone may learn the techniques to practice in icebaths at home or other more accessible sites.

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR: Before finding the Wim Hof Method in 2013, at the age of 50, Piet was suffering some serious health issues including lymphoma and the after-affects of the cancer: rheumatoid arthritis.

He was told that rheumatoid arthritis would be part of his life until the end of his time on this planet, but after one month of WHM his arthritis had almost disappeared. HIs health rapidly improved and today Piet can honestly say he's healthier, stronger and happier than when he was 30! He is one of the first Officially Qualified Wim Hof Method Instructors in Australia.

Festival Pass holders pay $30 (use your code to apply discount). Ticketed separately for $50. NB The same workshop will be presented on Saturday and Sunday.
