Not only is deep breathing good for our health and immune system, I truly believe the breath is one of the most effective ways into our inner being. I have experienced energy shoot up from the bottom of my spine after the breathing method and the third eye lighting up. Wimhof is one of the best breathing methods to guide the way.

You can sit up in a comfortable position or lie down. In this video, I recommend you to lie down. Especially if you have never done it before. You get more air out of it.
I usually sit up and meditate after the session, helps me get deeper meditations. (not recommended for everyone, please use your own judgement)
– Don’t take the method and techniques too lightly, they go deep and the effects can have a huge impact.
– Don’t do the breathing exercises in a swimming pool, before going under water, beneath the shower or piloting any vehicle, without proper supervision. Always practice in a safe environment.
– Keep in mind to do the exercises without forcing them, gradually build up and don’t exceed your limits.
“The breathing exercises can have strong physiological effects, and must be practiced as instructed. Always perform them in a safe environment, sitting or lying down. Never practice the exercises before or during diving, driving, swimming, taking a bath, or in any other circumstance where loss of consciousness could result in bodily harm. Deep breathing may cause tingling sensations, a ringing in the ears, and/or lightheadedness. These are normal responses and are no cause for alarm. If you faint, however, you have gone too far, and should take it more slowly next time.
Do not practice this breathwork during pregnancy, or if you are epileptic. People with cardiovascular issues, or any other serious health conditions, should always consult a medical professional before starting breathwork.
