If you come to any of my classes you would have heard me talking about doing Wim Hof breathing for months and more recently a morning cold shower….oooh! No ice baths yet though.
Last week I came across this video from Dr. Sten Ekberg, click here to watch, who explains what happens when you do both – breathing and the cold.
It is the best explanation of how the autonomic nervous system works – the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and how they balance us – I have ever heard.
And why doing the breathing and the cold is good for our bodies and when you should be careful.
Play and learn!
