Have a look at our schedule below!
Pop Up Wild Sauna
🕒 We start with a gentle 10-15 minutes in the sauna, gradually increasing the heat. As your core temperature rises and you begin to sweat, we take a refreshing break to cool off. 🌬️💦
After cooling for a few minutes, we dive back into the sauna. 🔄 In the second round, we raise the temperature a little more, and in the third round, even higher! 🌡️💪
Your safety and comfort are our priority, as our experienced team carefully monitors the heat. ❄️😌
In just one hour, you'll experience three invigorating sauna rounds, interspersed with two or three revitalizing breaks. ♨️✨
To cool down, you have two options: Either relax outside the sauna or take a invigorating cold water plunge. 💦🏊♂️
If you choose the plunge, we recommend a gradual approach to help your body adjust. Start by wading into the water gently, allowing your body to acclimate. Once up to your waist, take a deep breath through your nose, exhale slowly through your mouth, and gently submerge your body, sitting on the floor. Remember, there's no need to go beyond your depth for the full plunge experience. 🌊🌬️
However, please note that entering the water is at your own risk. ⚠️💧
Imagine sauna on the picturesque sandy shore paradise of natural beauty that is Mermaid Beach!
The alluring aroma and comforting crackle of our wood-fired sauna stove create a truly enchanting and cozy ambiance, elevating your beach sauna experience to sheer perfection.
For the bold and adventurous, our beach sauna offers the exhilarating experience of stepping straight from the tent into the sea, embracing the invigorating embrace of the waves.
Find your sanctuary of tranquility in the soothing sauna where you can unwind and stay super chilled, away from it all.
A beautiful peaceful venue
We are right on the beach. In a lovely quiet little corner. At the boat yard on front in Hornsea, just to the South of the boat ramp, There is a set of stairs down to the beach. This is where the mermaids swim! There is good parking in the gravel car park above.
Bring a bottle of water
You will sweat a lot and so bring some water... with maybe a crunch of sea salt in for hydration.
Wear swimming cozzie underneath
To save time when you get here just wear your cozzie underneath.
Be gentle and don't go out of your depth
If you do decide to have a dip , please be gentle on yourself, go in slowly and incrementally. Then when you are up to your waist slowly submerge. There is no need to go out of your depth. You go in the sea at your own risk.
Wrap Up Warm!
Bring plenty of baggy clothes to get back into once you are finished. Maybe a changing robe for modesty!
Head torch or torch
If you are attending a session before or after dark it might be helpful for you to bring a head torch or torch. We do have lights, but it is best to have your own personal torch if you have one!
What Should I Do in a Sauna?
We recommend simply doing the sauna what traditional sauna-ers have long done: nothing. Just sit there. Let your mind go. Do some reflecting while your thinking is still sharp; meditate when your mind starts going blank. Just be.
We will have a guided meditation and breathwork if the feeling is right.
It is also Ok to chat- this is your session and gift to yourself.
What Should I Do After I Sauna?
During your sauna session, you’ll lose a lot of water through your sweat — up to four cups during a twenty-minute session! Be sure to rehydrate with plenty of water afterward. Supplement with electrolytes as needed.
We would also recommend to just go easy on yourself. You will be in a state of high vibration and relaxation. You want to be in that state as long as possible so stay away from stressful or negative situations, people or media.
What Should I Bring?
Bottle of water. Towl. Bag for putting clothes in while you are in the sauna. Dress in something loose and comfy with bathing costume underneath. We are just in bathing costume in the sauna then in and out of the sea (if you wish). Afterwards it's a case of getting back into your clothes again a bit wet, so consider a dressing gown/towel/ dry robe for modesty.
I do not want to go in the sea
That is absolutely fine there is no pressure at all to go in the sea! You can stay in the sauna as long as is comfortable and just take breaks out in the air.
