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. 🌬️💦
Your safety and comfort are our priority, as our experienced team carefully monitors the heat. ❄️😌
The North Sea
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. ⚠️💧
The beautiful bay
We are located at the top end of North Bay. Embrace the beauty of North Bay as you immerse yourself in the enchanting experience of a wood-fired Finnish sauna.
Bring a bottle of water
You sweat more than you think and will need to replace those fluids. It is a good idea to add a little sea salt to your water to replace electrolytes.
Wear Cozzie underneath warm baggy clothes
You will be getting straight in the sauna so to maximise time just have your swimmers underneath. When you are done you will be a bit sticky with water and so it is a good idea to dress in baggy clothes,
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.
