A one-of-a-kind group experience

Everybody into the ice bath!

A workshop tailored to your group or event

Depending on your wishes the workshop will take place on the houseboat by the Amstel (maximum of 15 people) or someplace else.

In the case of larger group sizes, alternative locations can be discussed. Read more about the workshop and customer experiences below.

Workshop details

A unique group experience

Just like in the daily workshop, we will kick off with a presentation where the key elements of the Wim Hof Method will be explained.

An intensive breathing session will take place in preparation of the ice bath, under the supervision of certified instructor Bart Biermans, M.D.

By sharing an extreme experience (ice bath) with your team, you will breed a strong sense of camaraderie and unity.

The workshop can take place on the houseboat by the Amstel, at an alternative location or on-site at your event.

“Bart’s approach is immediately reassuring for everyone in the group”

Workshop Schedule

The workshops on location take 3-4 hours on average, depending on the activities. If the houseboat is chosen as a location, it will add an hour to the program due to the river swim and the process of heating up the sauna and hot tub.

A selection of earlier events

Holland Next Top Model

Focus training

On the Dutch television program Holland’s Next Top Model, Bart Biermans assisted the ladies into an ice bath. The goal of this training was to imbue the models with more concentration, so they could use this in their careers’ future. After intensive breathing training, all of the models managed to brave the ice bath. Watch the clips to get an impression.

Sterrenstof Festival

Lecture and ice bath

During the Sterrenstof festival in Amsterdam, Bart Biermans gave a lecture on the Wim Hof Method. A number of volunteers were subsequently led into the ice bath. Sterrenstof is a holistic festival where people are inspired to think freely and experience deeply. The participants received no prior training. Focus, trust and the power to let go are three qualities you will need to brave the ice bath.


IJsbath in nature

Bart Biermans and Bouke de Boer work together because they share a passion for discovering people’s untapped potentials. Bouke de Boer founded the first institute for Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) in the Netherlands. NLP was popularized by Anthony Robbins. At this event, Bart Biermans gives a workshop to the employees of NTI NLP. You can even book a workshop during the summer months. Participants at this event performed the breathing exercises in nature, in preparation of the ice bath.
