3 methods for Extreme Mindfulness

Get ready to experience what ice cold water, mind-expanding breathwork and roughhousing exercises will bring you!

Join us this weekend to deepen your Wim Hof Method (WHM) experience. The 3 components of the WHM (breathing, mindset and cold) are combined with the movement method Kinesica and exercises from different martial arts.

What will you do

Breath: Learn to optimize your breath to relax or energize yourself and get better control over body and mind. From mastering your breath and learning to relax at rest, we will take these skills to more complex and challenging situations (movement challenges, fightplay and cold exposure).

Move: Kinesica is a method of physical training to help you move with the ease of a child and the power and precision of an adult. You will learn this through movement games and play.

Play: Naturally, we learn how to deal with physical interaction through play. All animals know a form of ‘fightplay’, or so-called roughhousing. For adult humans there is often a lot to gain by learning how to play again – through cooperative, competitive and combative games. By explicitly involving an element of play learning is not only fun, but you will also learn faster.

Freeze: Of course there will be plenty of cold training. We will have a daily ice bath and other exercises and play in nature.

The Instructors

Paul Plasman is certified Wim Hof Method instructor and Russian Martial Arts Systema instructor. He will help you explore the outer regions of your comfort zone while staying in an relaxed state of mind & body. Breathe, relax and play.

Xander Barel is behavioral scientist, Combat Sambo Systema Instructor IV, one of the founders of Kinesica and a certified resilience trainer. His work focuses on analysing and facilitating education and personal growth. He uses psychomotor work and martial arts as strong tools to spot and remove obstacles in the path of development.

Some reactions from participants

Wonderful energy between the trainers, which was also reflected in the positive energy in the group. The combination of your individual qualities strengthened the entire program. I found your goal to ensure that we can apply the techniques in daily life very valuable.

This weekend gives you powerful tools to get control over your physiological reaction to stress. My mindset went from resisting to accepting challenge.

The whole weekend was a pure joy and the breathing sessions were the peak. I didn't know I could reach so deep in my mind.

I absolutley recommended your weekend, your art of teaching and your mindset. You are great guys and I´m very thankful that I met you.

I came out of curiosity to discover the Wim Hof method but I discovered much more with the Breath Move Play. Douwe, Paul and Xander were very professional and keen to share their knowledge in a fun and safe atmosphere. They took us on an amazing journey though mindfulness showing us the door to what your body and mind can achieve and left us with some life long learning.
