The three pillars

The wim hof method

The Wim Hof method plays a central role in this journey.
We will take multiple ice baths, and meditate under an ice cold waterfall

mindset

A powerful mindset is an important attribute of a successful person. To achieve your goals, a strong mindset is crucial. During the activities, you will be challenged to strengthen your mind. This journey will offer an opportunity to identify areas for personal growth. Through this unique experience, you will approach life with new powerful energy.

The cold

The challenge of cold exposure during the ice baths and waterfall meditation lies in finding peace in the uncomfortable. The first phase is the mental preparation and commitment you make. In the second phase, you enter the cold water, and your body experiences a shock, which is regulated through deep breathing and focus. After 30 seconds to a minute, the shock gives way to calmness and relaxation. Many people experience euphoria due to the release of happiness hormones. The last phase is heating the body mindfully through guided, gentle movements.

Breathwork

During a breathwork session, you bring your body into a parasympathetic state, the state in which the task-oriented part of the brain takes a backseat, allowing the emotional part to have more space. The connection with your body and breath deepens, your focus strengthens, and your mind quiets.. This opens up the possibility of gaining new insights and experiencing deep tranquility.

Tenzin Tserang

I was born in 2000. At a young age, I became interested in the question “How do you develop a healthy mind in a healthy body and how can I support and inspire people in this regard?” Sports, nutrition, and meditation turned out to be important elements for me, and I have delved into all of them and continue to develop myself with enthusiasm and curiosity. I am now a certified Wim Hof trainer and have completed the mindfulness teacher training at the Center for Mindfulness. I am also a certified nutrition advisor and have completed the Personal Trainers academy at Milo. With Live Mindfully and my personal brand, I offer my expertise and inspiration in many different forms to guide others in becoming the best version of themselves.
