Retreat Description

Escape the city and immerse yourself in a weekend of growth, conquering challenges, nature and connecting with a like-minded tribe through the Wim Hof Method. Join us, and find out how you can utilize oxygen and cold exposure to optimize body & mind, and learn about the underlying physiology.

This retreat will be facilitated by Cian Dalton (certified instructor) who has been leading WHM workshops all over BC and is thrilled to be offering a unique opportunity for people to go deeper with the method. During these two days, all facets of the Wim Hof Method will be extensively explored: breathing, cold exposure and commitment. 


Carolyn Schmidt will be co-Facilitating this retreat. She is an experienced professional in the world of dance, movement education, breathwork and bodywork. Carolyn will be leading movement sessions and helping out with various activities.


The intimate quality of the weekend allows for ample personal attention, and feedback tailored to your specific situation. Whether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to an illness, or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about— a WHM Fundamentals Weekend offers something for everyone. Over 48 hours we have the chance to challenge our limits and change our relationship with the cold. The retreat will go into extensive depth with the breath work helping participants to improve the quality of their breath. There will be a focus on integration of the work and in helping set up participants to continue this practice and reap the benefits far beyond the weekend training.
