Warm from Within: Wim Hof/Tsa Lung-inspired techniques
WEDNESDAY, Sept 13, from 7-9pm
Washington Square Park under North Arch
Hi All,
We continue the weekly gathering to:
– learn how to warm from within (winter…)
– improve health, get much less sick
– gain mood boosts, feel happier
However comfortable we feel, we can explore walking in colder outside with less clothes to warm from within. Or also attend Ice Baths.
I have years of experience guiding yoga, meditation, breathing, finished Wim Hof ten week course, and live yearround outside in sandals and shorts. It’s all practice and commitment. As Wim says: No Ego, We Go. Let’s gather and breathe again.
Thank you!


WEDNESDAY, Sept 6 from 6 pm:
Event all around Breathing with virtual reality and breath biofeedback Wednesday 7-9pm at Sixth Street Community Center, 638 East 6th Street, New York
– Demo of a brandnew prototype of virtual reality breath biofeedback…visualized and sonified guided breathing
– Science on breath…the latest studies on improving immune system, from depression/anxiety to happier states
– Guided session of Wim Hof-inspired breathing to soothe out the event and apply what we learned
Demo of breath biofeedback in virtual reality via augmented reality (taking a breath after that!):


The past months were dedicated to guiding a groups with breathing techniques. We are also working on a virtual reality program with breath biofeedback to explore techniques with technology. More soon!

Malia and hannes will join to guide breathing techniques inspired by Tibetan gTum mo, Tsa Lung, Wim Hof Method breathing together with sounding, voice dancing, vocal vortex, yoga and affirmations.

Explore how to induce a hypnagogic state (state of consciousness between wakefulness and sleep) through breathing and focus. Sense the subtle and energy body by releasing the mind and tapping into embodied awareness. The experience can potentially (re-)form one’s reality in combination with positive affirmations, visualizations and primal sounds.

Clinical studies on 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!
