What we're about

Simple and in-sync gatherings online or in presence. We breathe and/or practice cold immersions together to be healthier and happier.
Breathing (&techniques) have been scientifically studied (e.g. Wim Hof Method or Tibetan gtum-mo, breathwork) to, among other benefits, warm up the body in cold environments, improve health & happiness, and overcome depression & anxiety.
After a birth trauma and although with years of Vipassana meditation and as a yoga instructor still struggling with depression, I found breathing techniques in combination with mindfulness incredibly helpful to enjoy life all the time with gratitude.
Especially Wim Hof's method with cold immersion has in a simple way enabled me to barely get sick and be in the NY winter in sandals and without jackets. Learning and practicing together is so much more fun!
Last year, I helped facilitate Wim's first workshop in NY, and been guiding breathing sessions with hundreds of beings all ages and backgrounds the past years.
Please check out the Vice documentary on Wim, and also this page on breath research: https://webreathions.com/research/
Looking flow-ward to breathe together!
