Ice Bath – level 3
The Wim Hof Method combines breathing, a mindset, and cold therapy, and it is said to help you become healthier, happier, and stronger.
Brian Lai became Asia’s first certified Wim Hof method instructor. According to him, the first pillar of the method is breathwork, which gets the body ready and charges it up. Afterwards, you get into the ice bath or cold exposure. During those practices, instructors add mindfulness and meditation exercises.
When getting into an ice bath, you step outside your comfort zone, which develops resilience. Bathing in ice has a lot of benefits, including better sleeping, developing resilience towards stress, rejuvenating your body, and releasing anti-inflammatory chemicals into the body.
The Wim Hof Method was created by a Dutchman, Wim Hof, also known as the Iceman. He holds 21 world records related to cold water exposure. He’s swam 67 meters under ice, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, and stood in containers of ice for extended periods of time.
Difficult words: mindfulness (a mental state when a person is fully present), comfort zone (a situation in which a person feels safe or at ease), resilience (the ability to recover quickly from difficulties), rejuvenate (to make someone look or feel young and energetic again).
