Movement by Tim "Livewire" Shieff

Tim has spent a decade as a Professional Freerunner (winning several world titles), during that time he since spent many years practising Yoga, mastering handstands, mountain running, Bouldering/Rock Climbing and before that he was a breakdancer.

Through combining and connecting teachings from all these different disciplines and practises he has developed a course he titles 'Mindful Warrior'. Mindful Warrior is focused on helping you to understand the foundations of all movements to help build a strong and stable body with which anyone can then go onto other sports or disciplines from. From no experience of movement to world champion athlete everyone has something to gain physically from MW and also a new understanding of how the body wants us to use it efficiently for maximum results.

Wim Hof Method by Martin Petrus

Martin Petrus

When I was 5 years old, my grandma, after reading Sebastian Kneipp's book "My water cure", was treating me with cold showers.

At that time I was in perfect health - only later when I grew up and abandoned grandmas therapy, my immune system crashed under the attributes of modern society like chronic stress, processed foods and antibiotics.

In my mid 30’s I was lucky to get back on the cold track, had the chance to train with Wim and became a certified WHM Instructor.

I have managed to transform my life - bring back my health, become physically stronger and establish a mind state where I can be at peace with myself. Now I can share this with others.

Wim Hof Method certified instructor and Oxygen Advantage certified instructor. Trained with Wim Hof and Patrick McKeown. Teaching breathwork workshops in UK and Europe. Working with athletes (Crossfit, UFC) on improving physical performance.

Please arrive earlier to complete the signup.

WHAT TO BRING:

• Comfortable clothing to wear during the workshop (sports clothing)

• Sports shoes (clean training shoes that you don’t use for walking outside)

• Swimwear

• Towel

• Slippers

• Bottle of water

• Blanket

• Yoga mat

• Warm clothing for after cold exposure

Please feel free to bring your own pack lunch or snacks.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE ICE BATH:

If you are new to cold exposure, in the days leading up to the workshop end your warm shower with 30-60 seconds of cold water only. Begin with your feet and then follow with your legs, your stomach, shoulders, neck and back. Focus on calming down your breath. Don’t put your head under the cold shower, it is better to skip the cold shower on the head for the first month. This way you will become more familiar with the way your body reacts to the cold.

Everyone can participate to their own ability and level of comfort. No pressure, just fun day of new experiences and learning. If you have any health conditions or concerns please contact us beforehand and/or check with your doctor. The goal of the workshop is share these simple and effective health and performance improvement tools.

It is best to eat something light before the workshop.
