3 Best for something icy: Seaham Hall’s cold exposure spa partnership, Durham
If you love innovative wellness experiences, it’s time to book a trip to Durham. Seaham Hall, the historic Georgian country manor on Durham’s glorious heritage coast has worked closely with its award-winning spa to launch a brand new partnership focusing on the benefits of cold exposure.
Ideal for either fans of either wellness (or just the recent Freeze The Fear TV show) The Wim Hof Method, taught by Breathwork and Cold Exposure Instructor Hayley Dorian, is designed to provide increased energy, better sleep, reduced stress levels, heightened focus, increased willpower and a stronger immune system through three key principles – breathwork, the cold, and mindset.
Hayley Dorian, who trained with Wim Hof, the Iceman himself, will offer guests the opportunity to discover the Wim Hof Method first-hand in dedicated workshops, finding out how they can utilise oxygen and cold exposure to optimise body and mind.
Those who attend the workshops will master how a simple shift in the mind, combined with consciousness altering breathwork can enable them to experience the powerful effects of the cold, which includes improved metabolic function, reduced inflammation, strengthening of the immune system, increased energy levels, improved circulation, and improved mood.
Hayley Dorian added: “Very few people like being cold and so the idea of submerging your body in temperatures as low as zero degrees might not appeal to most of us. So, imagine what it’s like to discover that the thing you feared was the thing that made you feel so good and buzzing with life? This is exactly what cold water does, and probably the reason why so many people who try it once, continue to do so daily!”
Each workshop will include a two-hour guided session focusing on breathing techniques and teaching the benefits of cold-water exposure, a light, plant-based lunch served in the Serenity Spa’s Ozone restaurant, followed by an afternoon cold water experience, using the Serenity Spa’s icy plunge pool for up to two minutes per person.
When: Sunday 11 December 2022
Wallet: The sessions cost £155 pp and include up to 12 people.
Where: Lord Byrons Walk, Seaham SR7 7AG
