The breath is perhaps the most under rated, yet possibly the most important components of health, performance and stress control, underpinning and regulating every function in the human body. However, the majority of people are completely unaware of how they breathe or how they should breathe to optimise their health and reduce stress.

Cold water immersion (CWI) provides an opportunity to develop breathing protocols to control our response to stress.  During this workshop cold water immersion is used purely as a stressor and breath control training tool. However, aside from just feeling amazing there are many additional benefits associated with cold water immersion.  Which is an ancient practice with roots in many cultures, particularly those in high latitudes. Such as, Scandinavian populations who have long proclaimed the use of post-sauna cold exposure to rinse off toxins, jump-start blood and lymphatic flow, and release endorphins.

This Cold Water Immersion instructor certification is open to anyone seeking to deepen their knowledge of Cold Water Immersion as a stress management and relaxation tool and for those people wishing to deliver commercial cold water immersion workshops.   If you’re tossing folks into cold water and ice, there are things you need to be aware of to ensure it’s done safely, effectively and with the correct protocols to get the results your client is seeking and that are appropriate for the particular cohorts you’re working with.

The goal of the workshop certification is to provide trainers and coaches with stress reduction and deep relaxation training techniques that can be transferred and applied to the general day to day activities of their clients.

Contrary to popular belief and the current  ‘cold plunging’  fad cowboys, cold water immersion and breathing are extremely powerful modalities that need to be delivered with care and caution.  Although generally speaking, they are reasonably safe when facilitated by appropriately trained instructors, there are particular contraindicators and the cohorts of people who need to err on the side of caution when it comes to breathing and CWI related activities.   There is definitely no one size fits all approach that can be randomly applied across the board, and there are some folks who you should be very careful with or who may in fact need to be excluded from CWI activities.
During this workshop participants learn and perform simple, effective drills to reinforce the theoretical aspects of the workshop.  The workshop certification covers protocols to:
  • Enhance deep relaxation
  • Improve sleep
  • Manage stress and fear
  • Maintain calm
  • Enhance focus and decision making capacity when stressed
  • Reduce the effects of the cold shock response
  • Building grit and resilience
  • Identify contraindicators
  • Respond to adverse side affects of CWI
  • Risk assessments and Safety briefings
  • Debriefing and closure
Note: This is not a ‘break through’ breathing or ‘Wim Hof Method’ type event and there is no water based / breath holding requirements for this cert.  In fact its the opposite.  The breathing techniques taught on this certification stimulate deep relaxation and down regulate stress and fear based arousal, and tension using:
  • Stress reducing and relaxation breathing techniques
  • Relaxed breath retentions
  • Cold water immersion 

We do need to assess your ‘skin in the game’ and teaching skills so there are prerequisites to be completed by participants during the face to face component of this course.  Including completion of 2 x practical prerequisites – (10 minute 1:1 challenge and Use of breathing to mange the cold shock response and the complete 3.30 minutes relaxed breathing.   Support a student through a CWI and deliver a CWI safety brief (all completed on the face to face day).
