Seriously such an invigorating experience to pair breath work with ice baths. I’ve experienced lots of coaching in my life and the coaching at Miami Ice Club during both the breathing and the ice baths is top notch. It’s so powerful doing this practice with a group of people who are so different yet so like minded. The community is so welcoming and all of the Ice Club teachers are so special in their own way.
