“Do you have the courage to take the plunge? Do you want to learn how to strengthen your bodies’ immune system through creating your own inner fire? Are you ready to step into your full potential? Join Richard Ayling and learn more about the Wim Hof method. This is the first time the Hof method has been presented in Australia and promises to be well attended by yogis and non yogis.
The Hof technique is presently taking the World by storm with its unique breath practices, mindfulness techniques and ice bath submersion. Instructor Richard Ayling is visiting Sydney to demonstrate how you can influence your immune system and improve your health dramatically with 3 simple activities.
Wim Hof, also known as ‘The Iceman’, is a Dutch world-record holder who has pioneered a revolutionary new method. Backed by scientific research and with scientists queuing up to do more, the health benefits have huge implications for the future of medicine, self-healing and your wellbeing.
Richard Ayling trained with Wim to become one of the first European certified instructors. Having used the method to overcome his autoimmune disease and reshape his life and purpose, he now sees it as a door to accessing flow – enabling strength, health & happiness for everyone.
The 3 pillars of the Hof method are:
The first pillar of the Wim Hof method is the cold. The cold is your warm friend. Exposing your body to it in the right way starts a cascade of health benefits, including the build up of brown adipose tissue and subsequent fat loss, reduced inflammation to facilitate a fortified immune system, balanced hormone levels, improved sleep quality, and the production of endorphins— the feel-good chemicals in the brain that naturally elevate your mood.
The second pillar of the Wim Hof method is breathing. You’re always breathing, yet you’re mostly unaware of its tremendous potential. Heightened oxygen levels hold a treasure trove of benefits, and the specialized breathing technique of the Wim Hof Method unearths them all: more energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune response to swiftly deal with pathogens.
The third pillar of the Wim Hof method is the mindset. Mindset or focus is the foundation of the other two: both cold exposure and conscious breathing require patience and dedication in order to be fully mastered. Armed with focus and determination you are ready to explore and eventually master your own body and mind.
