Harness your potential 

Are you ready to break through your own barriers and liberate yourself from day-to-day stress, and limited and negative thought patterns? The Bluestone Retreat experience is set up to promote your own growth and self-development as well as building connection and community through the experiences including the fire pit and cold water ice bath.

Release your inner Wim Hof

Release your inner Wim Hof as we use cold water therapy and heat therapy in our iconic 'Fire and Ice' process to upgrade the body's stress response. First we'll spend time in the Sauna. This dilates your blood vessels, causing you to cool down quicker when you then jump into ice-cold water.


We then use Breathwork to harness the power of the fire and ice after the ice immersion, after which you are free to re-enter the sauna. Each individual's cold exposure is timed by stopwatch and managed closely by Katherine, a qualified fire and ice instructor. Staying within the time limits will ensure you stay within the safe operating physical 'training zone' for your body.
