13 – 20 February 2015, I did a 1-week course with Dutchman Wim Hof ‘The Iceman’ in Poland. I learned breathing techniques, yoga, meditation and how to handle the bitter cold with a fun group of people.
Earlier research in the Netherlands had suggested that Wim Hof’s method could strengthen people’s immune response making them more resistant to disease. After the week, I didn’t notice any effects in myself but the training was fun anyway.
You can find more about Wim Hof research (in Dutch) on the website by the Dutch current affairs TV programme ‘EenVandaag’.
