About the event

This is a weekend to deepen your Wim Hof Method (WHM) experience in a playful way. 

Three days of fully accomodated training to increase your mindfulness in stressful situations. The 3 components of the WHM (breathing, mindset and cold exposure) are combined with the movement method “Kinesica” and martial arts (FightPlay) to develop a strong mindset in the face of stress and resistance. All the while keeping a playful and open mindset, exploring and experiencing.

The weekend will be hosted by Douwe van den Berg, Paul Plasman and Xander Barel.


Douwe van den Berg is WHM instructor, breath coach and Kinesica trainer. He is interested in the body/mind interaction and has researched this in many different ways (meditation, acrobatics, anthropology, etc.). He started the WHM in 2012 and is one of the first instructors of the method. Currently, he is actively involved in the WHM academy (teaching the teachers).

Paul Plasman is WHM instructor and Systema instructor. He is fascinated by the role that breathing plays in mental and physical performance. 

Xander Barel is a behavioral scientist, Combat Sambo Systema Instructor IV, one of the founders of Kinesica and a certified resilience trainer. His work focuses on analysing and facilitating education and personal growth. He uses psychomotor work and martial arts as strong tools to spot and remove obstacles in the path of development.
