Wilfried Ehrmann is an exceptionally experienced breathwork therapist, Co-Founder of the IBF (International Breathwork Foundation) and a prolific writer about therapeutic breathwork.
In this episode, we talk about the breathing techniques used in the Wim Hof Method vs. those of the Buteyko Method which are quite opposite at first sight regarding breathing style and mindset. In the WHM you breathe a lot, in the Buteyko Method, you breathe very little.
We go into questions of where each method comes from, how they affect physiology, whether there are people for whom the WHM might not be advisable, and how prolonged phases of intense breathing (e.g. forms of conscious connected breathing) can help you tap into your subconscious and heal from emotional stress and trauma.
Listen in on Wilfried’s profound knowledge about breathwork, and learn more about this magic key that helps you unlock your truest and deepest potential!
