What To Expect

Life changes when you leave your comfort zone, so be prepared to loose yourself to find the real YOU!

Let yourself be guided in the wild heart of Nature by the expert hands of certified Wim Hof Method Instructor and Transformational Life Coach, Jolanie. You will reconnect to Nature with a deeper understanding of the power of your own mind and what your body is truly capable of. You will learn to let-go, expand your boundaries, while learning to embrace your fears, and taking the necessary steps to experience all you’re meant to be.

What Our Clients Say


The WHM appeared on my radar during December 2020. I started to dabble in cold showers and breathing sessions. Fast forward to 2021, Wilderness, Garden Route and found Jolanie, a certified Wim Hof Instructor from South Africa, who trained with the legendary Iceman himself. If I ever doubted that I wanted to be a Hoffer for life, Jolanie’s workshop convinced me that I can not live without the WHM.

I own a breath of gratitude to her and the Wim Hof Method.


“As a martial arts instructor, correct breathing techniques are very important to me.

I recently had the honour and privilege to join Jolanie’s breathing classes and found them incredibly valuable in terms of using my lungs to a far greater capacity. Her teachings are very similar to what I have learned in my traditional karate training, but with a far deeper emphasis on filling the body with oxygen. I have since incorporated a few of the techniques she taught, in my own classes.

Jolanie is knowledgeable and a skilled instructor, and I highly recommended her classes to anyone wanting to explore the benefits of propper breathing.” 


“Jolanie’s qualification as a WHM instructor is clearly seen and experienced in the way se presents the Wim Hof Method, where in a group she teaches the 3 pillars of the WHM, cold therapy, breathing and mindset, needed to bring everlasting transformation.

Her expertise and warm personality, and the group’s support in a very beautiful environment gave me a very memorable transformational experience.”
