Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is limited to 14 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.
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.
The program kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, a breathing session, an (optional) ice bath/cold immersion, and a deep dive into relevant theory. It will be combined with short hikes (2-4 hours each day) in the nature around the shelter to discover some of the natural gems of the Cadí Moixero Natural park. At the end of the retreat, there is ample room for reflection, and the Instructor is there to answer questions throughout the workshop.
Difficulty of the hikes : easy

Moshe, is a certified mountain guide (TD2) and C.E.O. (Crazy Enthusiastic Organizer) of Yepalo. He used to be this typical city dweller who saw no point in wandering about in the woods just for the sake of it. Why would you go in the mountain in summertime? You can’t even ski! That was until he discovered what it was actually like to enjoy nature, to hike in the open air and to bathe in freezing cold rivers. After 15 years working in the fashion industry, he gave his career a turnaround to organise his life according to his passions: being in nature and connecting people from different cultures and backgrounds. He is member of the Spanish Association of Mountain Guides (AEGM).
