Activities with Instructors
To meet the growing demand for expert teaching and guidance, we developed a program that allowed capable teachers to gain knowledge of the theory and practice of the Wim Hof Method, to a point where they could professionally, responsibly & reliably help spread Wim’s message. Thus was born the WHM Academy.
Since its launch in 2013, over 200 people have successfully completed the program. WHM Instructors now teach the Wim Hof Method under official license all over the world. Qualified and capable, these certified Instructors typically offer small, intimate workshops that can be tailored to your specific wishes— sometimes in conjunction with related disciplines, such as fitness or yoga.
New activities are continually added to our interactive map. Find a workshop near you and receive expert knowledge, personal guidance, and immediate feedback. Whether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to an illness, or simply want to spend your day doing something different and exciting— we have you covered.
Highlights of each activity are depicted in easy to understand icons. There are icons for the theory behind the method, breathing, yoga, meditation, endurance, ice baths, nature, and food. These highlights are explained in more detail when you click on a specific activity.

Looking for more supervision and coaching in your Wim Hof Method practice? In the 5- or 10-week Group Course you will meet up with fellow WHM-practitioners, and train together in a series of classes once per week. You will gain a theoretical understanding of the Method, compounded by a synergy resulting from your shared experiences. Homework provided after class allows you to progress on your own throughout the week.
The classes are subdivided into the following components:
- Wim Hof Method theory
- Breathing techniques
- Cold exposure
- Focus/Physical exercises
Classes progress such that, by the end of the course, you will have sufficient knowledge and tools to maintain a practice independent of supervision.
