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!

Slow deep breathing - the simplest trick to meditate and relax.

Online event

Slow deep breathing to relax and wind down.
Slow down the week at the start.
Observe our breathing and slowing and soothing it, winding down.

Every Monday for 33 minutes.

Adult breath on average 18-20 times per minute. Way too much.
Here, we learn together how to inhale 5-10 times per minute.

I've seen somebody take a 2 min slow inhale who felt relaxed and energized after.
By learning how to expand our belly and chest more, we improve our breathing patterns - a training that improves our entire life.
Better breathing helps the blood flow, brain and happiness.

The 40-min session offers scientifically studied techniques to feel your lung wings like flying – and to practice at any time at home.

Experience the “energy body” within minutes with e.g. tingling sensations:

+ Detach from remote hustle into your subtle mind-body
+ Relax more and more with every breath
+ Improve health, attention and avoid sickness
+ Learn how to sleep better with breathing
+ Gain mood boosts
+ Clinical studies on Wim Hof breathing techniques showed coping of injections of e.coli bacteria, acid to alkaline blood pH level changes and a release of more adrenaline than a first bungee jumper through breathing!

Inspired by his mentor Wim “The Iceman” Hof and Tibetan masters, Hannes Bend has been guiding “Smile of Breath” classes at renowned museums (Rubin Museum, Frost Science), conferences (Stanford) and offices (Google, WeWork).

Sweet smells of plants in the enticing Elizabeth Street Garden, Between Prince & Spring Streets, New York, NY 10012

We continue the weekly gathering to:

– learn how to warm from within

– experience the 'energy body' within minutes with e.g. tingling sensations

– improve health, get much less sick

– gain mood boosts, feel happier

– learning about the science on breath…the latest studies on improving immune system, from depression/anxiety to happier states. Did you know we exhale most of our body fat all the time? That lungs are producing blood?

Play with your subtle (energy) body in an almost hypnagogic (half-awake) state through breathing and focus. Enjoy to warm the body from within, de-stress, energize, relax, and dance with heart and nerves.

Release the mind and tap into embodied awareness.

Clinical studies on Wim Hof breathing techniques have shown coping of injections of e.coli bacteria, acid to alkaline blood pH level changes and a release of more adrenaline than a first bungee jumper through breathing!

I have years of experience guiding yoga, meditation, breathing, finished Wim Hof ten week course, and live year-round outside in sandals and shorts. It's all practice and commitment. As Wim says: No Ego, WeGo. Let's gather and breathe again.
Thank you!
