Dan Hughes

Meet Dan, the Co-Founder of 'Vitae Vi' and a Wim Hof Method Instructor with a passion for breathwork.


Despite facing a serious illness in his late 30s, Dan persevered, only to be challenged by the debilitating effects of Long Covid years later. Discovering the Wim Hof Method became a turning point in his journey, providing relief from chronic fatigue and other symptoms. Inspired by the transformative impact, Dan left his corporate career to become a Breathwork & Wim Hof Method Instructor.


His mission is clear: to help others feel stronger, healthier, and happier by unlocking the potential of controlled breath, mindset, and cold exposure. With a personal understanding of the impact of illness and stress, Dan guides individuals toward unlocking their inner power, embodying Wim Hof's mantra that "You are stronger than you think you are." Join Dan on a transformative journey; you won't look back.

Karyn Hughes

Meet Karyn, the force behind 'Vitae Vi.' An expert in Reflexology, Wellbeing Coaching, Fitness Coaching, and Golf Biomechanics, her journey began with a pivotal lesson: "paddle your own canoe."


Dissatisfied with a lucrative beauty industry job, Karyn courageously purchased a gym on the Isle of Wight, sparking a fulfilling venture. Over the years, she seamlessly integrated coaching, fitness, holistic therapies, and established a skin clinic. Karyn's well-being passion extends to collaborations with the NHS and voluntary work at a hospice.


Her commitment shines in a successful staff well-being program at The Cowdray Estate. With partner Dan, she incorporates the Wim Hof Method, breathwork, mindset coaching, and holistic therapies into courses and retreats. Their mission is simple: warmly guide everyone, regardless of background, toward strength, happiness, and health, ensuring a sense of achievement at every step. Welcome to a personalised world of wellness!
