  • Kundalini and energy shifting yoga;
  • Changing your body chemistry with breath work;
  • Tapping into your autonomic nervous system through mindset, breathing and cold exposure;
  • Learning to overcome reaction rather than responding to your outer environment;
  • And find out from leaders in the field about the latest research in biotech, nutrition, cell biology and much more.

Biohacking Retreat Day

Pranabar Biohackers Half Day Retreat
Sunday 4th August, 8:00am – 1:00pm

– Kundalini yoga with Baldev Kaur (Justina)
– Bulletproof coffee break with BiohackerNZ
– Biohacking talk with Trudy Northcott of TrustbyTrudy
– Breath works and ice bath session with Wendy Vermeulen of Pranabar

Explore the realm of biohacking with us through a day of guided sessions. Biohacking is a term made popular by Dave Asprey, the inventor of Bulletproof coffee and more, and can be described as ‘a systems-thinking approach to our biology’. This August we delve deeper into the many studies, tools and talks to discover youngering and biohacking.

Begin with a powerful energy shifting Kundalini yoga session with Kundalini teacher Baldev Kaur, where you’ll stimulate the central nervous system, awakening the Prana or life force within.
“Kundalini yoga is said to be ‘the science, art and technology which enables you to access and utilise your own creative power for elevation of consciousness, healing and self-empowerment.’(kundaliniyoga.org.uk)”

Follow with a bulletproof coffee break with BiohackersNZ, where you’ll also have time to chat with the group on your Kundalini session as well as the science behind and benefits of bulletproof coffee.

After the break we’ll begin our biohacking deeper dive session with guest speaker Trudy Northcott of TrustbyTrudy.

Closing off our day of biohacking exploration, we’ll end with a breath work and ice bath session with Pranabar facilitator Wendy Vermeulen. Drawing inspiration from the works of the Wim Hoff Method, we’ll discuss mind tools, breath work and cold exposure before taking the plunge.

Join us this August as we dive deeper in to the community of biohacking!
