I recently took Tim’s 6-week Control Your Breath – Control Your Life program and it was truly incredible. I cannot overstate how much better I feel mentally, physically, and spiritually. Tim provided a perfect balance of the breathing practice along with an explanation of the science behind that week’s breathwork.
The videos he provided allowed me to incorporate the instruction into my daily routine – then followed by 90 seconds of cold exposure. There is also a shorter session for when time does not allow for the full routine.

Thank you Tim!

Tim is a phenomenal teacher who combines the scientific approach with a wide berth of personal experience. He has helped me experience unimaginable sensations through his guided breathwork and the knowledge behind it in his teachings. It’s safe to say he completely threw my paradigm for a loop and I’ve changed for the better, emotionally and physically.

Tim is not only a really good teacher and trainer with a very good methodology. He is also a really nice person. He truly cares for us students and look after us. I really recommend all his courses

Melita Rogelj

Tim’s approach gently yet clearly enforces the design and optimization of a morning routine that includes breathing practices. The breathing exercises, with a combination of intensity and subtlety made space for both relief as well as unexpected realizations. Grateful Tim, to both your humbleness as well as progressive mastery of such an important life skill.

CYL 1-course: Comprehensive material, extensive practical content, on excercise and also sufficient scientific backup at this stage. Easy to follow. Tim initiates great team spirit in the training groups which helps to raise motiviation. Also as an access point for instructor training: very recommendable!

I have spent an amazing week with Tim in beautiful Patagonia doing nothing but breath work and ice-baths (and taking lots of naps recovering). Tim is great teacher: clearly passionate about breathing, really down to earth and very knowledgeable on the subject. He gives you small and therefore easily achievable, daily exercises which you can do at home. That really works well for me and helps me to improve on all aspects in life. Any of Tim’s workshops are highly recommended as a gift to yourself!

Tim is a wonderful person. Sensitive but also very rational. His speech is clear. I have the need to talk to him personally about my experiences and he gave me all the attention in the world. Very reachable even after the workshop. Hard to put in words my gratitude. See you soon!

I did a 4 hour workshop with Tim and loved it. It was about the Wim Hof Method and I liked how he explained the science behind it in a clear and understable way. Tim is a very engaging instructor and has a great and welcoming personality. We did breathing exercises and an ice bath in the end. He has a wide knowledge about breathing and cold work and is happy to answer all of your questions. Highly recommend working with Tim!

Felix Taylor

Tim is an absolute boss! Funny, charismatic and so passionate about his work it’s impossible not to have an amazing time. I can also safely say that this stuff works too, instant stress relief doing his breath work and cold exposure training. I would highly recommend TT

Tim was a wonderful instructor. He made the process of learning the breath work and entering the ice bath calm, informative and safe place to learn in. I would highly recommend Tim and the course. It has transformed the way I see the world and my own personal development. Thank you for your support through the day Tim.

Tim’s Control your breath control Your life group coaching course was phenomenal. Perfect level of practical, theoretical, scientific and spiritual elements with his fun and engaging teaching style. I can’t wait to continue on the journey with Tim

Pamela Spitz

Very happy to have participated in Tim van der Vliet´s Wim Hof Method experience in Rio de Janeiro this week. Tim is the appropriate person to show a grand variety of breathing techniques and has a pragmatic and natural approach to learn and give knowledge about body and soul, without being too spiritual or shanti shanti. I love that. Thank you very much. Pam

Tim is an amazing coach, very knowledgeable, and well prepared. I’ve known him for many years and attended many of his seminars and workshops. I highly recommend his online course and keep an eye on his travelling schedule for a workshop in your area!

Richard P

Very experienced and engaging trainer. His interest in constantly improving and keeping up with the latest health science sets him apart and above most other practitioners.

Ramon Rubio

Tim really takes the time to explain the WIM HOF methodology as well as shares some additional breathing techniques to take your breath work to the next level. If you’re on the fence of taking the plunge I definitely suggest you go for it.

Tim really knows what he’s talking about; the session was informative, interesting and entertaining and I learned a lot. there were also plenty of opportunities to ask questions and there was no pressure for anyone to do anything they didn’t want to, in terms of both breathing exercises and the ice bath!

2-day Wim Hof course in Denmark with Tim.
Great coaching and a good pragmatic approach to teaching.

Christopher Hague

Great course.
Tim has both a fun & graceful teaching style. Always opens to challenges, questions & suggestions. The content is extremely practical & informative, using many methods backed by science. Broken down into numerous short, but informative videos which makes the learning manageable. A fantastic wellness programme.

Amazing energy, sense of humour and care. Expertise combined with experience and humanity. I released tears of joy after one of the breathing rounds lead by Tim and surrounded by a lovely group and had a fantastic weekend! Thank you!

Lindsey Taylor

An exceptional training course for one’s health in more ways then you can imagine. I recently did Tim’s Level 1 training because I was fascinated by the Wim Hoff method and Tim is an instructor.

I decided I wanted to learn more and go deeper around the different elements of breathwork, plus science and other health hacks Tim would share in his course.
Wow…..what a great 6 weeks, I would recommend it to everyone.
It was then only recently I had to use the techniques when I had some severe pain which i thought I was going to have to go to hospital. After using the breathing techniques for 30 minutes the pain had subsided. I was shocked that something like this could work.
My son aged 10 also applied a technique I showed him when he got injured on the football pitch and he ended carrying on playing.
Thank you Tim 🙏

Tim is such a relaxed and wonderful person. I’ve learned a lot from him and because of him also from others. Tim is honest and open about everything he knows or doesn’t know. He shares it all. Since I’ve started his breathwork course I’ve been doing my morning ritual (breathing, exercise, cold shower) on a daily base. It’s just wonderful and amazing that I still do it.
I will continue to learn from Tim and become a breathwork instructor myself.

Edit on April ’22 – I just returned from the breathwork instructors retreat and it was mind blowing, a life changing experience. It’s like throwing gasoline on a fireplace. I made so many steps in becoming Alex 2.0 and for sure I know what my life path is all about♥️🙏

Thanks Tim (and Mahdi) and everybody in the course in helping me grow🙏

You are the one who makes the decision in taking this Course, You will be the driver of your Health, your Breath, the driver of your life.

The courses he teaches i.e. the Wim-Hof Courses or the Tummo courses(Control Your Breath, Control Your Life) are amazing.

He’s constantly refining his methods and integrating new knowledge into the courses.

It has always been a pleasure attending his courses via Zoom or in person and I would highly recommend him.

He is a very good teacher, he is very warm, down to earth, funny, approachable, and extremely knowledgeable, his instructions are clear and concise.

I feel mentally stronger, more relaxed, more healthy within body and mind.

The Course (Control Your Breath, Control Your Life) helps you manage your mental and spiritual side through the pandemic by keeping a focus on breath as a tool to keep anxiety at bay and to focus on a positive daily routine to becoming a better you.

Namaste, the light in me honors the light in you, all Knowledge is Self Knowledge.

Rodrigo Pasqualin

Hey Tim, I would like to thank you for our immersion day in Brazil. It was an incredible experience, although we just used simple tools! Everyone misunderstand the power of breathing and cold therapy and we have never been able to learn this powerful tools in a common base. Well it is a strong transformation and it really chance our alchemy.

I was observing your manipulation technique while the first girl that had her feet entirely broken got into the ice bath. At the end u said: beautiful transformation. Well what I can tell?, Your sensibility provides open a space in which creates a opportunity to get into peoples head with such an amazing respect, love and effectiveness. So you help them control their own emotion! You are very kind, funny and a great instructor! It was an honor to meet you.

Well breathing exercises creates an opportunity in our state of mind which helps our control cold therapy. All the exercises really changed my alchemy. I hope to see u soon!

Please let me know when come to SP again 🙏🏼

This course connects scientifically grounded physiology to ancient breathing techniques which makes breathing simple.

He does this by teaching effective principles which anyone can use to increase their energy and consistently, allowing you to show up for life no matter if you have an hour to breathe or just 5 minutes.

Tim is a teacher who is incredibly generous to his students, he takes time to answer questions and he listens to each person, eager for feedback which inspires him, while offering his own expert insights.
You’ll never hear him say that his way is the only way, and he encourages exploration of all breathing techniques.

This course will give you tools to create and experiment with breathing on your own path with the guidance of a highly generous and insightful teacher. I highly recommend his course.

I was unsure what to expect when I embarked on the course but was so impressed on many levels. Tim is fabulous, fun, professional, knowledgeable and knows how to get the best out of you in a non judgemental relaxed way. I have learnt so much, how to breathe to really make a difference in my life on so many levels. The science part is clear, as it underpins what’s going on in your body to facilitate the change.

There are so many amazing materials to access thoroughly and after the course. Tim had guests weekly that are so talented, they take you on a journey that is just amazing and not to be missed. I highly recommend the course, I am still happier and more relaxed since taking it and have a tool kit of techniques to use when I need too.
Breathing is a fundamental daily activity however, a few simple tweaks and knowledge you will never breathe the same again! Thanks Tim and the guests you have had on the course, you literally have transformed my

This course is amazing!
You have access to a huge wealth of knowledge, insights and personal attention. The path to becoming a breath work instructor is nurtured under Tim’s guiding hand and also by guest instructors in the breath work community. The course is beautifully designed to help you attain the knowledge and passion gradually and in doing so help you grow as a person within yourself or to becoming a human 2.0 as Tim says. Learning this is not a lonely thing either, as you grow a bond with your fellow students and you feel part of a community but without the constraint on your own freedom. In short you feel connected from day one. Your confidence to teach this knowledge will grow also until you are able to put your own identity in how you want to use this amazing thing.


Beforehand, my intention to join CYB-CYL was to extend my cold workout, do longer daily breathing sessions, and train harder. But by following the videos and the question hours that belong to the course, just the opposite has happened; shorter time in the cold (much better for my body), 1 session of 20 min daily from his you tube community and I participate very calmly in the movements. Tim has taught me to listen to my body much better and to put my ego aside. He gives a lot of personal attention, is professional and answers your emails quickly. Really recommended.

Excellent tutor with a lifetime of experience. Straight to the core of the matter, and paying attention equally to everyone during group sessions. I’ll gladly join him again for the next workshop!

Tjardo Eilers

Very nice experience, definetely pays off. Tim really gives great insights into the the science of breathing and meditation to deal with stress, recovery or everyday life situations. The ice bad at the end was the cherry on the cake!

Tim and his invited contributors introduce multiple breathing modalities and modulations.
It is definitely and a lot about real guided practice to then freely tailor to individual needs, goals and contingencies. ++ ++Progressive, structured, flexible and …always pleasant group dynamic. EBrsummer2021]

De Fysio Man

Ik kwam Tim vanmiddag in Duinrell tegen en we raakten aan de praat toen we aan het wachten waren voor onze attractie. Vol passie en enthousiasme sprak hij over zijn ademtechnieken die hij in zijn leven heeft opgedaan en waarvan hij mij er eentje leerde. Zijn zelfontwikkelde DMT ademtechniek. Binnen 5 minuten leerde hij mij deze techniek die een totale vloed van rust over mij heen bracht. Als fysiotherapeut heb ik de afgelopen jaren veel ademtechnieken geleerd maar deze is anders en heeft een hele snelle en bijzondere uitwerking. Ik heb me meteen ingeschreven voor zijn cursus want ben ontzettend enthousiast.
Dank je wel Tim dat ik jou tegen het lijf liep. Ik kijk uit naar jouw cursus!

A very enthusiastic person who can explain everything well and takes the time for you. Since I (almost) every morning do the 5 Tibetan yoga exercises, I notice that I am more flexible and start the day with more energy. Thank you Tim!
