Sauna Meetup & Whisking Workshop with the British Sauna Society

Pt. 2 of the Great Northern Sauna Meetup

Illustration: Giuseppe Acerbi, ‘A Finlandish Bath’, 1799.

From Acerbi’s journal:

‘The Finlanders, all the while they are in this hot bath, continue to rub themselves, and lash every part of their bodies with switches, formed of the twigs of the birch tree.’

{thank you, Mika Meskanen}

The British Sauna Society are in town! Hear more about the growing sauna movement in the UK and join a sauna whisking workshop, a tradition of gently whipping the body using bundled branches.

~ Cleanse yourself between the sauna and our bracing outdoor shower for the ultimate refreshing sauna experience ~

*Limited capacity for sauna discussion & workshop, first come, first served: get here early to avoid disappointment!*
