We have been ice-bathing at Mundekulla for many years in the surrounding waters - and we are looking forward to dive deeper into the different breathing techniques, the skills and mindset that can support our stay in the cold and the science behind the health benefits.

1-Day: Wim Hof Fundamentals Workshop
Put yourself in the expert hands of certified WHM Instructor Björn Karlsson to learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof Method: Breathing Technique, Cold Exposure & Commitment. Find out how you can utilize oxygen and cold exposure to optimize body & mind, and learn about the underlying physiology.
The workshop is limited to 25 participants. The intimate quality allows for ample personal attention, and feedback tailored to your specific situation. Whether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to an illness, or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about— a WHM workshop offers something for everyone.
The program kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, and includes a breathing session and an (optional) ice bath. At the end there is room for reflection, and Björn is there to answer questions throughout the workshop.
Instructors have their own specializations, and there is some variation across the individual workshops. Björns specialization that he brings into his work with the Wim Hof Method is in stress relief, nutrition and exercise.
If you have no prior experience with cold exposure, we recommend you finish your showers cold in the days leading up to the workshop. This may be overwhelming at first, but just try to relax, focus on your breath, and bring it into a controlled, steady rhythm.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is suitable for everyone, but does require a basic level of health. Out of precaution, we advise against participation during pregnancy, or if you are epileptic. People with cardiovascular issues, or any other serious health conditions should always consult a medical professional before starting the Wim Hof Method.
Instructor: Björn Karlsson
Björn is a Swedish Wim Hof instructor from Kalmar, 43 years old with a 9-year-old son. Exercise and nutrition have been his true passion for as long as he can remember, but it was not his profession. Becoming a Wim Hof instructor has given him so much and being able to inspire others to better health is something he is passionate about. To each time be present with another person when they discover something completely new and often revolutionary for the first time within themselves.
“After going through fatigue syndrome myself 2 years back due to an all too hectic 20 years in IT project management business I discovered the amazing healing and energizing effects of the Wim Hof method. Beside getting my energy back and reducing stress I also quickly discovered my asthma symptoms disappeared and my problem with cold white fingers during winter time completely disappeared. Today I don't even need gloves when playing in the snow with my 9 year old.
I also came to realize I truly love to inspire others towards better health both physically and mentally. I decided to embark on the journey toward a new career to be a health coach and become a certified Wim Hof instructor. I am convinced that anyone can take back control over their health just like I did, and am super excited to assist you in your own journey.”
