The Wim Hof Method is about reconnecting us - to ourselves, to others and to nature. It's a powerful team-building experience and equips individuals with the tools to feel happier, healthier and stronger - both inside and outside of the workplace. 

The power of the Wim Hof Method is the combination of the three pillars - breathing, mindset and cold exposure. Some of the benefits of this Method include: 

  • Increased energy
  • Better sleep
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Heightened focus & productivity
  • Increased mental strength
  • Stronger immune system
  • Improved mental health
  • Boosted concentration
  • Better mood
  • Increased happiness

A Wim Hof Method Fundamentals workshop is four-hours long and no previous breath work or cold exposure experience is necessary! Just an open-mind and willingness to learn.

Some people attend a Wim Hof Method workshop to find for new ways to push through perceived physical or psychological limits. Some use it as an inward journey to process hardship or trauma. Others still are just always searching for the next novel experience to enrich their lives.

All participants will be asked to sign a health declaration prior to the workshop. You will need a basic level of fitness to participate and be in good health. Due to your safety being our number one priority, some of the activities in this workshop may not be suitable for you if you:

  • Are pregnant
  • Have serious cardiovascular conditions (including previous heart attacks)
  • Are epileptic 

Previous cold exposure / breath work experience is not required for participation in this workshop, just come as you are with no expectations and let the magic happen!

Hidden away on the beautiful island of Skye in the Inner Hebridies, Scotland lies the Cowshed Boutique Bunkhouse. Nestled into a quiet corner of this wild island, the breathtaking scenery including rugged mountains, sandy beaches, refreshing streams and deep waterfalls. Enjoy wonderful views of the sunset over the bay and, for a lucky few, views of the Northern Lights. The perfect getaway from your busy lifestyle!

Three hours from the nearest airport (don't worry, airport transfers are included if you need them!), you're totally away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world. There are stunning views of Skye and the sea through the large picture windows that surround the main living and dining space. During our time together, we'll be doing daily breath work sessions, diving deep on mindset and performance psychology and getting plenty of cold exposure in nature. 

Take time to reset, re-connect with yourself, nourish your body with hearty food and drinks,  and leave feeling like you can conquer the world! Recharged and reconnected to your mindset, your body, and your energy.

This retreat is for you if:

  • You enjoy using breath work, cold exposure and mindset coaching to manage your physical and mental health and would like to enhance your learning and skills

  • You're new to breath work, cold exposure and mindset coaching but curious about how it could help you and keen to learn more

  • You live a fast-paced life and recognise the need to slow down, disconnect and recharge your mind and body

  • You find it hard to switch off your busy mind - and would like to learn how to slow down, reduce distractions and be more present in your life

  • You want to learn more about how you can make stress your new best friend - using powerful performance and wellbeing psychology strategies

  • You enjoy being active outside in nature and embrace adventure and challenges

  • You're keen to find out what your limits are and uncover what you're really capable of (SPOILER ALERT - it's a LOT more than you think!) 

  • You are a real team player and thrive in group environments with like-minded others.
We'll be staying in the super cosy Cowshed Boutique Bunkhouse on the North-west coast of Skye. Accessible by car via the Skye Road Bridge or you can book a flight into Inverness and we'll pick you up in a minibus from there.

The Cowshed Boutique Bunkhouse was created with a sharp eye for design and comfort. There are stunning views of the Skye and the sea through the large picture windows that surround the main living and dining space. We'll enjoy the excellent location, fantastic facilities, wonderful views of the sunset over the bay and, for a lucky few, views of the Northern Lights. 

You can book one of the cosy bunk beds in a single-sex shared dorm, with excellent shared bathroom facilities. Or if you'd like more privacy, there are a small number of luxury pods available to book for the week - equipped with a double-bed, underfloor heating and en-suite shower rooms. 

As part of the retreat we will be blessed with our very own in house cook! They will take full control of the kitchen so you won't need to prepare, wash, wipe or clean for the whole week. 

​All meals are provided as part of your retreat as well as, unlimited tea, coffee, fruit, snacks and water too.

I am a (Performance Psychologist (BSc (Hons), MSc, MBPsS.) and Certified Wim Hof Method® Instructor. 

I’ve designed this retreat because I’m hugely passionate about the role nature and adventure can play in our wellbeing. I notice I thrive in natural environments myself - be it hiking, camping, climbing or wild swimming. The combination of participating in a physical challenge with being immersed in nature, as well as being hugely rewarding, also helps me to manage stress, anxiety and overwhelm. 

Having experienced burnout first-hand, since then, over nearly five years, I’ve developed a comprehensive toolkit of techniques and strategies I now use to manage my mental health.

For me, getting outside in nature is one of those key tools. I always feel better when I’m on an adventure! Whether it’s hiking in mountains of Wales, camping high in the French Alps or swimming in the sea in Cornwall. Alongside powerful psychology techniques, getting out into the wilderness has become a big part of my life - so much so I am currently training to be a Mountain Leader. 

I’ve designed this winter retreat to get you fully immersed into the wilds of Scotland. This change of environment will provide you with a refreshing break from the familiar and sometimes stressful surroundings of daily life.

Along with hikes on the mountains surrounding our bunkhouse, and wild swims in sheltered coves, waterfalls and lochs, you’ll also have the opportunity to attend powerful breath work and mindset sessions to give you space and time to think about your life and help you gain more control over your thoughts and emotions.

Running my own business does mean I find it hard to find balance, switch off and be in the moment. Therefore, I know this is needed by so many others, and sharing a space where we can reconnect, recharge and reset is so important to me.

So much hard work has gone into planning this retreat, and I can't wait to be at the Cowshed on the Isle of Skye later this year, and I'd love for you to join me!

Hi! I'm Sarah.

Sarah x

“I’ve experienced many retreats which have all been very beneficial to me. But there was something very special about this one. Sarah, you did an amazing job at not only organising the week, but gathering participants, coaches and caterers that were of such a pure energy. I always trusted it would be, but it was more than I had ever expected. I’m so grateful for the experience, the support you and the team gave me when I struggled. A retreat of a lifetime...”

Michaela - 2023 Retreat Guest

“The group of people who came together and shared the experience were all amazing. The food and catering was exceptional and the venue was beautiful. I liked the time to reflect deeply and access a deeper level of healing than I had been able to previously. The sports massage with Kate was fantastic and released a problem I've been having for months, highly recommended!"

Zoe - 2023 Retreat Guest

“A transformative retreat that pushed my comfort zone, gave me an inner strength I had forgotten about, a genuine feeling of connection and the skills to prioritise my own wellbeing. You provided a safe space to release things I had been holding in and the comfort to be vulnerable. From the hikes to the swims, the activities were amazing. A stunning location, accommodation, chefs and coaches. You even organised the perfect weather!”

Joanne - 2023 Retreat Guest

We will be hosting just 20 guests on this retreat. 

You can book either a bunk in one of the cosy and spacious single-sex bunk rooms in the main bunkhouse or for guests who want to get even closer to nature, coming with a partner or prefer your own space, there are eight luxury pods in the grounds. 

The beds in the bunkhouse are cosy and private, with curtains across each bed. There are plenty of modern, shared bathrooms and large, open-plan communal living areas with stunning views across the bay. 

The pods each have a double bed, en-suite shower and toilet with heated floors, electricity and beautiful bedding. They all have stunning views across the bay, and potentially even the Northern Lights.

"Sarah was absolutely amazing! I attend a lot of personal development workshops and retreats and this was one of the best. Of course, Wim's content and method is fantastic but Sarah added some extra special magic through the way that she delivered it. She was really present, supportive and held a very safe space that encouraged the vulnerability that's so important for the transformational work."

Abi - Workshop participant

"I arrived knowing very little of the real benefits that we were taught. Sarah didn’t rush and made sure everyone understood as we went through the three elements of the Wim Hof Method, answering everyone’s questions before she moved on. She was exceptionally encouraging and when it came to the ice bath we were all ready for our turn. Sarah guided each and everyone of us through our ice experience…. An amazing day . Thank you Sarah. I didn’t want it to end. BRILLIANT!"

Sheila - Workshop participant

"Sarah has been my secret weapon for the last three years. Working with her I have achieved so many successes that I never thought possible. In as much as she has helped my business, working with Sarah has transformed me as well. She has challenged, guided and allowed me to really discover the person I am. I am more confident and secure in my abilities to manage my work-life balance and know that by using the skills Sarah taught me. I can really have it all! She continues to be my ultimate role model and mentor and working with her is the absolute best investment I have ever made both personally and professionally. She really is the absolute best in the business."
