Breath & Ice Experience: for Sport & Recovery
Discover the life-changing power of Breathwork and Cold Exposure and how they can amplify your output, give you a competitive edge, and speed up overall recovery!
Welcome to this Sport & Recovery edition of the Breath and Ice Experience, an event that offers you a chance to enhance your human experience, athletic output, and overall recovery through the tools offered freely by nature.
This workshop is for anyone looking to add a science-backed edge to their training. From the occasional jogger to the more competitive athlete, anyone can find some wiggle room to improve on, as anyone can improve their breathing under stress.
Led by Melbourne's former leading Wim Hof Method instructor William Frost and overall longevity freak (who has personally trained with Wim Hof in the Polish mountains as well as some of the most prestigious educators in the field of Breathwork), this workshop will take you through the fundamental principles of understanding how to use your breath to your advantage as well as:
- How and when to upregulate your nervous system at will without the need for exogenous (and expensive) tools/supplements.
- How to make the most and extract the optimal amount of energy out of every breath you take.
- The vital role of High Altitude Training, and how to climb a mountain from the comfort of ground level.
- How to strengthen your immune system.
- Use breath and cold to enhance your cardiovascular network.
- Reduce stress levels in order to speed up recovery not just in between training days but also sets.
- Tools to optimise your sleep.
- And so much more!
The workshop will also cover the importance of cold exposure as a natural tool to take your health, resilience, and well-being to the next level.
What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is simply an umbrella term describing a wide range of conscious breathing practices that promote deeper awareness, self-regulation, and profound personal transformation to enhance inner peace, health, and well-being.
Breathing, beyond the basic need for survival, acts as a bridge between the known and the unknown; between the conscious and the subconscious. The Breath and Ice Experience is created to educate you on how to optimise your own breath.
Many who participate in this experience describe it as transformational and often reflect on a day filled with fresh insights, high-grade knowledge, and personal experience that often changes their lives straight away.

William, a former leading Wim Hof Method instructor, has spent a half-decade learning from some of the top coaches in the field of breathwork and human physiology. His passion is outweighed only by his mission to change the way that people breathe, one breath at a time. William, through vigorous self-experimentation, has explored and researched multiple areas not just of the different applications of breathing but how deeply it affects the body, down to a DNA and cellular level.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH BREATHWORK SESSIONS?
DISCLAIMER: Breathwork offers many potential benefits, but certain conditions may create risks for some individuals. It is essential to read all questions in the waiver above carefully before deciding if Breathwork is right for you, and let your health practitioner know about any concerns before participating. There are some contraindications including but not limited to pregnancy, glaucoma, high blood pressure not controlled with medication, cardiovascular disease, aneurysm in the brain or abdomen, uncontrolled thyroid conditions and diabetes, asthma (if you have an inhaler, bring it to the session), epilepsy, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia diagnosis or previous psychiatric hospitalisation within the last ten years; other medical or physical conditions that impair the ability to engage in intense physical/emotional release.
A positive answer does not necessarily exclude you from participating but may require medical clearance first. So, reviewing all questions in the waiver carefully and indicating any relevant personal situations before engaging in Breathwork activities is essential.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH COLD EXPOSURE?
There are always risks involved when engaging with natural forces such as the cold, but there are indeed appropriate steps taken to mitigate and lessen as much risk as possible.
Prior to the workshop: it is advised to begin implementing gradual cold exposure into your daily routine as soon as possible via a short cold shower (either as a stand-alone or at the end of your normal hot shower). This begins the adaptation process in your mind and body to help prepare for the shock of the cold.
In the workshop: we begin by presenting hands and feet in the cold to assess the body's response. If you experience any adverse reactions (headache, nausea, lightheadedness, extreme stress response) then I, the facilitator, reserve the right to encourage you not to fully submerge in the ice, or, in the rare case, to not participate at all.
Please note that adverse reactions are unlikely but can (and do) occur,
The ice bath is completely optional.
WHAT IF EMOTIONS COME UP AND HOW CAN I HANDLE THEM IF THEY DO?
On these workshops, I fully welcome any emotions that might come up during both the breathwork session and / or the ice bath. That’s why I have taken every measure to ensure your safety and comfort while you take this journey. I will join you on the ride and provide any tools or techniques that may be needed if intense feelings come up. I provide a safe and supported environment with and am always ready to assist you should you need it. Before the breathwork session, we take time to get comfortable by providing calming breathing exercises so that your mind is relaxed when beginning the session. No matter what comes up during the session, know you’re in a secure environment with people who are willing to support and guide you.
CAN I ATTEND A BREATHWORK SESSION IF I AM UNDER 18 YEARS OLD?
Yes, you can attend a breathwork session if you are under 18 years old, but only with the supervision of an adult. This is to ensure that the breathwork session is conducted in a safe and secure environment for everyone involved. From experience we know that often the experience is more appropriate for those that are aged 18 and above
In addition to safety considerations, breathwork sessions are likely to be more appropriate for those aged 18 and above. This is because adolescents may not have the emotional maturity or life experience needed to fully understand or benefit from such a technique.
