Mike har undervist i yoga og mindfulness i over 30 år og har på egen krop oplevet de mange fordele ved isbade.
Apart from the feel-good factor, why else would you want to immerse your body in ice cold water? Because immersion in cold water increases blood flow to vital organs, it tones and improves the skin, it reduces inflammation, it causes the release of endorphines (the feel-good hormone) and other hormones in the brain, and stimulates the vagus nerve (the largest cranial nerve in the body)
Cold water immersion also stimulates and activates the immune system.
A one minute ice bath can leave you feeling wonderful, calm and mentally and physically balanced for hours after. Cold water immersion alone has been shown to offer improvement and relief to those suffering negative states like anxiety and depression. Add yogic breathing to this and the effect is more so.
Introduction to ice-bath immersion and yoga breathing technique module.
Mental preparation for ice-bath immersion
Ice-bath immersion. Participants enter the ice-bath as a group and use the yogic breathing techniques learned in the introductory module to maintain focus and stability in the ice water. Those new to ice-water immersion will stay in the water between 1 and 2 minutes maximum and then retire to the sauna or dampbad. Those with more experience can stay in the ice for up to 5 or 8 minutes. After this initial group immersion there will be a 'freewheel' space in which participants can alternate at will between further ice-bath immersions and the sauna/dampbad.
The group meet in the warm acoustic Hammam room for a period of 'nada yoga' Nada yoga is the yoga of sound, or frequency and in this session participant will be guided through sequences of 'humming' and OM mantra practices.
The final module of the workshop will be gentle hatha/yin yoga with a focus on tension release from shouders, neck and back. We will finish with a guided relaxation.
The workshop will finish at 19:45 and all participants must be exited from the Sofiebadet location by 20.
Prisen for workshoppen er 450 kr. inklusiv undervisning, kurbad, slippers og vand. Husk badetøj!
