In between sauna rounds it is a good idea to cool off. To cool off you can either sit outside the sauna or you might like to take a cold water plunge. We would advise going into the water gently, incrementally, so that your body can get used to it. Once you are in up to your waist, take a deep breath through your nose and as you exhale slowly through your mouth gently submerge your body so you are sitting on the floor. There is no need to go out of your depth to get the full plunge. The benefits of the cold plunge are many! You go in the water at your own risk.
Nestled along the picturesque coastline you will discover the charming Runswick Bay
This slipway leads down to the soft sandy beach, providing a delightful entry point to the waters of the North Sea.
You'll find a designated car park ensuring easy access for visitors eager to get tot the sauna!
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.
