A CITY centre gym is set to welcome an expert in the world-famous Wim Hof technique – the first time the stress-relieving, fear-crushing approach to breathing has been presented in the Midlands.
Kinetik gym, on Bottle Lane, will host Australian breathing guru Leigh Ewin on Saturday, September 14th who will present a session on the Wim Hof method, which is all about reawakening the inner power of the human body to adapt to extreme cold temperature, bringing with it a raft of health benefits.
Leigh, who now lives in Finland, practices sauna and cold plunges daily combined with a strength and conditioning regime which he says has allowed him to truly understand the human physiology, controlling stress and fear responses and increasing his general fitness performance.
He said: “The Wim Hof technique is simple and beautiful. It is about proper exposure to the cold and increased oxygen levels alongside patience and dedication, in a nutshell. At our first ever session in the Midlands, we will demonstrate how these three pillars combined can unlock a stress free existence. In our hectic, online, 24-7 society it is more important than ever before to take time for ourselves and to work on our happiness. Our technique is all about crushing stress and fear through the simple combination of the natural world and controlled breathing.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the attendees from across the Midlands at our event at Kinetik. Sharing my Wim Hof experience with others has opened so many doors and changed so many lives.”
Owner of Kinetik Ali West added: “Our space is all about transformation and personal happiness and we’re always looking for motivational people to come and inspire our community with their experience. Leigh’s experience is a perfect fit for our methodology at Kinetik where we focus on processes and systems to achieve success. Breathing is such as simple element of our lives but so many of us don’t do it in a way that benefits us – we all have a lot to learn from Leigh.
“This session is the first of its kind in our area and we’re expecting it to sell out quickly. It is appealing to high powered professionals in the corporate sector who live hectic and jam-packed lives and are looking for ways to destress that are more effective than a weekly yoga session. This is a way of life and the approach Leigh will outline is certain to help everyone who attends.”
