Meet Tim: A Leading Breathwork Expert in Amsterdam

Tim van der Vliet is a breathwork and cold exposure specialist, YouTuber and author. He is among the best specialists of breathwork in Amsterdam

Meet Tim van der Vliet, a breathwork and cold exposure specialist, YouTuber, author, and father of five. Tim’s 15-year breathwork experience started at yoga schools where he did rebirthing: a style of breathing that involves breathing while someone is pulling your arms. It was really intense but good! And though Tim committed to over one hour of yoga and meditation daily for 9 years, it did not lead to a pain-free life. Shortly after that, Tim discovered and began practising deep breathing and breath hold techniques, specifically the Wim Hof Method. This ignited his interest in everything related to breathing and he hasn’t looked back since!

Today, Tim has reached over 1 million people on YouTube, and he travels around the world to train thousands of people on TT Breathing, a breathwork technique which he created upon realising that traditional breathwork methods were not really applicable for everyday people that are not in the yoga space.

An Overview of Breathwork

Breathwork is a practice that involves conscious control and manipulation of your breath to promote relaxation, stress reduction, and overall well-being

When I asked Tim to explain breathwork to me in simple words, he said: “Breathwork is a practice that involves conscious control and manipulation of your breath to promote relaxation, stress reduction, and overall well-being”. He then went on to give me an overview of the history of breathwork. Tim explained that breathwork comes from Pranayama, a style of yoga breathing that translates to “control of energy”. Basically, Breathwork is 2000 years old and there’s nothing new about it.

For centuries, breathwork was traditionally practised by yogis because of its intense spiritual ties. However, it has broken into the mainstream over the past few decades. Tim mentions Wim Hof as one of the main pioneers of breathwork in Amsterdam and the throughout the world, commanding his scientific approach to the practice. Tim himself is another great pioneer in breathwork and his TT Breathing technique was developed with the aim of being applicable to any situation in life.

Speaking about TT Breathing, Tim said: “Everybody needs some help sometimes. To get out of their head, stop overthinking, relieve stress, or boost energy. My techniques are the most efficient way to get there because they take the least time”. And with only 5-star reviews from over 80 Google users, it’s clear that Tim is telling the truth.
