Five-night Wim Hof Method Retreat

 

Wim Hof Method

 

Deep inside us though is the answer to these problems. We can unlock our potential, improving our health, happiness and strength, by learning the Wim Hof Method.

 

Breathe with Niall

During this five-night retreat, you will learn how to:

Breathe fully and deeply, improving your health, giving you more energy and reducing stress

Improve your focus and determination, helping you explore and eventually master your body and mind

Use gradual exposure to the cold to strengthen your immune system, balance hormone levels and elevate your mood

 

“Before coming to the retreat we didn’t have any expectations. We only realised in the car on our way to the center that already the 1st evening we would be taking an ice bath. So we started getting nervous about it . Having followed Niall on Instagram and heard positive things about him, and knowing the retreat center and Michelle, we knew that we were in good hands. 
This retreat probably changed our life, because now breathing and cold are part of our day to day life. We already can feel the benefits from it. Niall and Michelle are so inspiring, supportive and caring.”

Séverine and Giorgio, guests from our Wim Hof Experience Retreat – March, 2019

 

Cold Water Swimming

Not only that, you will be immersed in the magnificent and rugged landscape of the Wild Atlantic Way. You will learn, practise and test the full range of the Wim Hof Method techniques against the raw, natural elements. You’ll swim in the wild Atlantic, you’ll hike the Cliffs of Moher and have time to relax in our beautifully appointed retreat centre.

 

You’ll learn to find comfort in that discomfort. You’ll learn to conquer the things you struggle with. You’ll learn to conquer the cliffs.
