One day workshop

Exclusive workshop by the river Amstel

Step into the ice bath

Learn to brave the cold

Bart Biermans teaches workshops from his home – specifically, his houseboat, a remarkable location on the river Amstel. It features a living plant wall, a sauna, and a hot tub for good measure, ensuring a special experience. Bart’s boat has been featured in a variety of national and international magazines, recently appearing on the TV program Binnenstebuiten (NCRV/KRO).

I always work with small groups of 12-14 people to ensure everyone receives individual attention. Due to my background as a doctor, I will approach this method from a scientific and physiological angle, but more importantly this workshop is supposed to be an emotional experience. Feeling is understanding.

About the workshop

A day you’ll never forget

During the first part of the workshop, we’ll take you through the theory and practice a number of breathing exercises.

During the second part of the workshop we dip into the ice bath, and the hot tub or sauna after that if desired. A refreshing plunge into the Amstel is also on the list of possibilities.

There’s a fifteen-minute break in the workshop during which tea will be served, along with a light snack (bananas/rice cakes). The effects of the exercises are best experienced on an empty stomach.

The workshop concludes with you sharing your experiences over hummus on toast (organic).

After a thorough instruction and a few exercises, Bart will assist you towards a one-of-a-kind experience
