    #5: The Power of the Cold – with “Iceman” Wim Hof

    #5: The Power of the Cold – with “Iceman” Wim Hof

    A fascinating journey into the power that the cold, deep breathing and commitment can unleash together: Wim Hof is known as the “Iceman”, the reason being that he is able to endure the cold to an extend that was believed to be physically impossible before.
     
    Wim Hof has climbed Mount Everest to an altitude of 7.200 meters, dressed in nothing but shoes and shorts. He ran across the Namibian desert without water. And he has set up 26 official Guinness World Records, for example for
    - the farthest swim under ice, with a single breath
    - the farthest half marathon barefoot on ice and snow
    - the longest time in direct, full-body contact with ice, spending 1 hour and 53 minutes in ice water – while feeling good about it!
     
    He has combined breathing exercises, mediation and ice baths into what he calls the Wim Hof Method, which he teaches all over the world. 
     
    In this episode of Unfolding Maps, Wim talks about how he has discovered the power of the cold and why he believes, his method can help with things from strengthening physical health to fighting depression. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Kundenrezensionen

Aomirai ,

Finally an English version of “Weltwach”

“Unfolding Maps” is that podcast I needed in my life! I’ve been in love with “Weltwach” since over a year but could never recommend my favourite travel podcast to anyone who can’t speak German.

Do you want to learn more about travel related stories? Then you should check out this podcast. Erik always manages to end up with the most interesting conversations with his guests. Even if you heard someone’s story already, you would find something new you might not know yet.

I’m already excited about all the future guests to come. Finally, guests and topics aren’t limited to the German-speaking area anymore, but ”Unfolding Maps” can show us global diversity.
