Wim Hof Method | Safety Information


Welcome to this step by step Wim Hof Method video course. We like to give you the best outcomes without any damage It is very important that you watch this instructional video to the end before you start this course. Pay attention to every detail. First rule Listen to your body and never force. The Breathing exercises are simple
but they go deep Always do the breathing exercises in a safe environment sitting or lying on a couch or bed. Don’t do the breathing exercise in a situation where it might be dangerous to faint. So don’t do it in the water, in a bath or driving a vehicle. How to prepare for the breathing: Always start on empty stomach to get the most out of the exercise Make yourself at ease.
Lay down relax. A body that is relaxed is able to store up the most of oxygen. Set your intention before you start and start doing your breathing exercises. You can track your retention times but it is not mandatory. We know it is fun to have some competition but this is not about that. It is about having a great experience and just feel great afterwards. When you do the cold exposure It is great to train with the cold. You will hate it when you begin but sooner or later you will love it. First rule.
Never force. It is about the effects not the number of minutes you stay in the cold. You can easily have hyperthermia and that can be very dangerous. Never overdo it and listen to your body.
Always. Second rule.
Stay focused. Be aware what you are doing. Yes you can make selfies but remember.
Be aware of your own actions. When you do ice baths or go into nature make sure you always have a buddy or Certified Instructor to assist Bring warm cloths and drinks and again never force. In this course you will find different kind of nice stretch exercises that really help you to get the blood flow going and make the body more flexible. We tried to provide exercises for all levels. However you might simply can not do them all. It is no problem you are not able to do them directly. Just do what you can do and never ever force. If you have any special physical conditions please consult your doctor first. The method is not a competitive game but meant as a tool to connect more with your body and mind. Don’t force it, listen to your body and be playful. Enjoy the course

  1. Could you guys make a video which explains all of the things to go for on a daily basis?
    Also do you do the breathing before an ice bath?

  2. Can anyone tell me if this is good, due to oxidation, and the release of free radicals from the body??

  3. Wim Hoff is a game changer. Power techniques to transform your physical and emotional health. Used to hate cold showers, now I love them. Amazing guy. Inspirational.

  4. I can see how this would be good for a allready healthy type person (to get in ice water/or whatever it is they're doing)/
    But I think it would verge on dangerous more many others who are allready sick..
    (People who are sick would b the ones who would want to do this// I can't see it helping a frail old lady or someone whose sickly immune system etc. They'd probably get shock cold. It wouldn't b good. It'd be harmful? Especially if they're minds allready on the downward spiral regards to health.

    I dunno – just seems dangerous advice? I could be wrong?

    Just seems like it would only work for those who have the courage to do this type thing anyway. And if u got the courage to do it y probably don't have an issue

  5. Fuck #wimhof and his racist Gestapo bullying admins. #geraldcaussade. Sad you would associate yourself with racist bullies wim.

  6. Thank you again! Can't get enough of the HOF! HUF and Puf and give mother (#$%@&%)….lol….Love you!

  7. I know how he doesn’t feel cold, I think with the breathing technique he paralyzed his body / nervous system, I did this method and after 4 days I did it for 40 minutes and my hands were legit paralyzed for 4 minutes and I felt really crazy

  8. I tried it while driving at it was okay as long as I didn't do too many reps. It really wakes you up and makes you way more aware of your surroundings when driving.

  9. I feel some illness early on and before manifesting (due to meditations) my body asks for these breaths and I end up not getting sick.

  10. I have a little bit a harder question after you have breathed and stretched you're body is warm inside so you can take a cold shower but after a few hours and you would take a second cold shower is you're body still warm of the first breathing or do you need to breath and stretch a second time to warm up ur body sort off??? Cuz how long does it take to change the temrature ur body back too normal so u cant handle the cold showers anymore cuz ive been doing the cold showers nog for like a week and im beginning to feeling happier see brighter and all that stuff but i wonder if you can take cold showers afster a few hours or maybe some days without the breathing technique can you do that or do you need to do it always a second time before you go into the cold again…. cuz when i go the barber or something i want to do a cold shower after that but thats when i have done my breathing already in the morning and the cold shower so if someone can tell me that i would bbe very gratefull for that…thank you 😀

  11. Guys, I always used to hold my stomach inside.. Not during breathing, ALWAYS 24*7 but now as I have been doing this for a few days my stomach is showing itself.. I don't like it, what can I do about it..? I'm sure this is helping me breath more volume but its embarrassing

  12. Thank you Wim for your knowledge & inspiring passion.,It seems to have changed many lives for the better including mine…

  13. I have a question… other than bi-polar disorder and PPD and anxiety, I have a polyp in my gallbladder and benign liver tumor. With a plant based diet and intermittent fasting along with this method, I was told it was there for life so do you think it could be removed with all these things combined? It’s effecting my breathing space …

  14. I saw two cases in wich people had a seizure whilst doing the breathing… now i am a bit concerned about if it is worth trying… allthogh i wold realy like to. Anybody here who knows how to avoid having a seizure?

  15. This video clip is really lovely, the little Wim cartoon , the music, the funny ideas and finally Wim's pleasant and kind voice. GREAT WORK, thank you!

  16. I like to hold my recovery inhale breath as well, and sometimes I can hold that longer than the initial post-30 exhale hold. Is there any reason I should NOT hold the recovery breath?

  17. I started practicing about two months ago and I reached 3min on the second day already and was so admired by it! But soon I started to reach less and less and now it’s just 2min maximum! I realize that it’s not a competition and I feel very good after the practice but how do you think why does it happen? Maybe I’m doing anything wrong?

  18. Another breathing method I have been using with better effects than his exhalation hold is to inhale in stages for 30 seconds per stage, without exhaling. I had suffered from inhalation of some kind of spores or fungus for 2 and a half years, and it kind of resulted in collapsed nasal passages, and lack of oxygen flow to the brain. This inhalation method has been a real revelation – the positive effects last much longer than the exhalation method.

  19. Hello Wim! Just started yesterday. Will certainly continue. I know this stuff is for me. Thanks a lot brother for your generosity. God bless and all the best!

  20. Should I be laying down for the breathing part? Or sitting a certain way? I just did it while sitting in a chair, with my legs down, but noticed after (3 rounds breathing) my toes are very purple!! 🤨

  21. I got some time heart arithmia after breathing exercise?!? I don't get it because I doing everything by the book. Anybody with this experience?

  22. Isn't there a risk of brain damage when holding your breath? (Bohr effect) I do the method every day and feel all the positive things

  23. Wim, buenas tardes, yo se que hablas español….tiene la misma efectividad hacerlo parado? Y la ducha frìa tiene que ser apenas terminas los ejercicios? La inspiraciòn y expiraciòn es siempre por la boca? Son varias preguntas y por favor respòndemelas, agradecida…..31.1.2020

  24. Gerade das erste Mal gemacht und 2,25 min die Luft angehalten!!!! UNFASSBAR! Und das Gefühl danach ist auch unbeschreiblich. Der absolute Hammer…

  25. I have a question. I want to start with the cold showers but in the morning i need to clean myself in the shower (lol) before going to work, so i was thinking about having my regular shower with hot water and finish it with the cold shower. Its that ok? It has the same effect than just the cold one alone? Thanks

  26. Is it safe for women on their Period? I know some Pranayama / breath-work is not recommended for women during this time. Thank you

  27. hello wim i started to practice yesterday and i like so much your metod, you are my idol, im from Argentina and i hope know you in person some day, thank you very much for your metod, you are in my heart.

  28. "Consult your doctor first." Suuuure. They'll look at you like you're getting sucked into some holistic cult. And then prescribe antibiotics for all your ailments.

  29. Ok… I want to try. I 've got a bronchitis, not very bad one but I have a dream : never have that any more. Last bronchitis of my life ! I feel fear about breathing so deep. I don t know why. I feel fear about suffocate… I think it s time for me to be brave and … BREATHE. I was practicing Aïkido, the teacher was always saying to me "Marie ! BREATHE! Please BREATHE!" That made me suffocate 😜
    Well, now I want to really BREATHE. Thank you Wim. Love from France.
