I began my journey with ice baths in 2017. I am a certified yoga teacher and began coupling sound meditation, affirmation, emotional release and ice bath therapy into one practice. It helped me so much mentally, physically and emotionally that I have been sharing this practice in recovery centers, mental health centers and with community at the Music Monastery.
With this one practice, there are so many stacked functions (one action, many benefits)
- Improves immune function
- enhances mood
- increases metabolism
- reduces inflammation
- reduces anxiety and depression
- reduces body fat
- increases resilience
- increases confidence
- increases personal clarity
- learn how to find your calm quickly in the chaos of the ice water
What to bring: flip flops/crocs, etc., swim suit, journal and pen.
What’s included: towels, fruit, snacks, non caffeinated and caffeinated iced tea, filtered water, zero gravity lounge chairs, ice baths!

members post interesting quotes and research pertaining to ice baths like:
“Cold treatment can be used to treat a range of different ailments. It can be used to promote skin health, minimize the appearance of cellulite, aid in weight loss, and stimulate the immune system.”
“Extreme cold temperatures stimulate the body to release endorphins, which can cause euphoria and an improvement in mood. Cryotherapy is also used by athletes for recovery because it help reduce inflammation, pain, and enhance recovery time after strenuous activity.”
