YOGA & BREATHWORK with Mieke Kreeftenberg
In this 2 hour workshop we will be practicing deep transformational breathing techniques influenced by the techniques of The Iceman, Wim Hof, a Dutch world record holder, adventurer and daredevil, commonly nicknamed “The Iceman” for his ability to withstand extreme cold. He is the creator of the Wim Hof Method and holds more than 20 world records.
In the workshop we will be performing a certain style of controlled hyperventilation which induces a greater flow of oxygen into the system which is then better stored in the bodies blood, cells and organs. Ultimately, this has an alkalising effect on the body which can reduce inflammation within the body and subsequently prevent the bodies from suffering from debilitating conditions caused by too much inflammation in the body.
The breathing techniques will:
oxygenate the body and brain, and will help to increase the body’s PH-levels, making the environment more alkaline;
helps boost the immune system;
beat stress levels;
naturally increase fertility and overall well-being;
many people with auto-immune disorders have benefited from the method.
There will also be a physical yoga practice before and during the breathing techniques. Also, just to note, Mieke has been influenced by Wim and slightly altered the techniques and added some other breathing too to calm the nervous system.
Many people have reported to be feeling better after taking Mieke’s workshops and courses, ranging from reduced pain and stress to a number of pregnancies after having had trouble conceiving.
At the end of the workshop there will be a long Yoga Nidra, or Yogic sleep.
Included in the workshop is a CD with Yoga Nidra.
