The 3 pillars of the WHM are Breathwork, Cold Exposure & Mindset Commitment. These are all natural elements accessible to all. We all have the ability to access and ignite our Inner Power coming back stronger, happier and healthier.

 

The WHM is a very efficient and accessible practice which powerfully combines and utilises oxygen and water/cold to optimize body & mind and influence physiology & biochemistry. We use oxygen and cold as acute stressors on the body to induce an outsized biochemical response.

Positive results are not guaranteed, but the Wim Hof Method can help with many different conditions – countless testimonials attest to this. Some speak of “miracle cures” whilst others simply overcome their fear of the cold or improve sporting performance. There are 3 ways in which the method can benefit you today; alleviating ailments, reaching optimal performance and reconnecting with nature.


What does a Wim Hof Method Fundamentals Workshop entail?

We follow a general rule – “a no programme, programme” at the Wim Hof Method – what this means is that the Fundamentals workshop will have an overall structure, however there will be ample room for fluidity and change. “Go with the Flow” as Wim likes to say.

Broadly speaking, the program kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, followed by a breathing session, a short break with light food/snacks, and then an (optional) ice bath. At the end there is ample room for reflection, and your Instructor is there to answer questions throughout the workshop (further outline below with details on what to bring/wear also).

 

Come along with an open mind and be prepared to Lean In and expect the unexpected!

Bio

The Wim Hof Method (WHM) has given me a deeper ability to be in control whilst also enhancing stress management and performance in my everyday life. I have been able to optimise my health, build mental resilience, grow personal relationships, re-connect with nature and turbocharge my career progress.

My personal journey of mental and physical improvement has taken me to naturopathy, mitochondrial health analysis, heart rate variability testing, blood testing, meditation techniques, life coaches, acupuncture, cryotherapy, swimming, calisthenics and HIIT training. The effectiveness of all these outlets and techniques have been strengthened by using the WHM as my underlying daily practice.

Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and artistic director (1990-2018) of Batsheva Dance Company. Gaga originated from Naharin’s need to communicate with his dancers and his curiosity in the ongoing research of movement.
Gaga classes are predicated on a deep listening to the body and to physical sensations. The instructions are deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation, and rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience. While many instructions are imbued with rich imagery, the research of Gaga is fundamentally physical, insisting on a specific process of embodiment. Inside this shared research, the improvisational nature of the exploration enables each participant’s deeply personal connection with Gaga.

Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body and adding flexibility, stamina, agility, and skills including coordination and efficiency while stimulating the senses and imagination. The classes offer a workout that investigates form, speed, and effort while traversing additional spectrums such as those between soft and thick textures, delicacy and explosive power, and understatement and exaggeration. Participants awaken numb areas, increase their awareness of habits, and improve their efficiency of movement inside multilayered tasks, and they are encouraged to connect to pleasure inside moments of effort. The language of Gaga is in a continual process of evolution, and the classes vary and develop accordingly.

Information about the class:
Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement.

Participants should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to dance barefoot or in socks. It is advisable to bring a bottle of water and a towel for use after class.

LATE-COMERS WILL BE NOT ALLOWED IN ONCE THE CLASS START

Anoushka was born in South East London. She began her training at the Centre for Advanced Training at Trinity Laban and the National Youth Dance Company, where she worked with Akram Khan and Andrej Petrovic to create and tour ‘The Rashomon Effect’. The following year she studied on the Foundation Course at Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and was simultaneously a member of WatkinsDance Associates. She then travelled to Israel, attending the International Dance Journey Programme with Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company and shortly afterwards to Italy, where she danced at Nuova Officina della Danza (NOD). She returned to England in 2017 to become a member of JV2 under the direction of Marilena Dara and David Lloyd, and toured pieces by Jasmin Vardimon, Yung Kung Song and André Rebelo. She has also performed in works by Rami Be’er, Botis Seva, Olga Stetsyuk and Megan Doheny and collaborates with Hadassah Perry.

Anoushka graduated from the Gaga Teacher Training Programme in 2020, under the artistic direction of Bosmat Nossan, Saar Harari and Ohad Naharin.

A lover of adventure, and curious about the process of discovering more- be that physically, artistically or personally, Anoushka hopes to create a generous environment where participants feel deeply cared for yet hugely pushed.
