Warning: Always do the breathing exercise in a safe environment (e.g. sitting on a couch/floor) and unforced. Never practice it before or during diving, driving, swimming, taking a bath or any other environment/place where it might be dangerous to faint. The breathing exercise has a profound effect and should be practiced in the way it is explained.

The cold is a strong force. We strongly advise you to gradually build up your cold exposure. Always train without force and listen to your body carefully. If not practiced responsibly, you risk hypothermia or an 'after drop'. Individuals should also not practice cold exposure when pregnant, after drinking alcohol, after meals or during exercise. If you have (serious) health issues, please always consult a doctor first before practicing.
