Sauna Nation – The 10 Weirdest Saunas in Finland

Sauna Nation – The 10 Weirdest Saunas in Finland | Finland, Suomi | Scoop.it

This blog is about Finland, so there has to be the obligatory sauna post. And here it comes. We have our own sauna in the flat. That's not out of the ordinary here, and in houses where not all flats are equipped with their own sauna, there often is a common sauna which you can book for one hour per week for a small fee. These saunas are quite handy, for example to dry your laundry when you haven't got a drying rack yet. But of course also for taking a sauna.

Sauna Salutations

Sauna Salutations | Finland, Suomi | Scoop.it
Sauna yoga is practised seated on a sauna bench in a mild temperature of 50°C. Today sauna yoga is offered in about 60 facilities in Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Germany, Italy and Spain. A sequence of simple, yoga-based poses and the quietness of the sauna pamper the body and the mind and make way for a thoroughly relaxing experience. The combination of the mild heat and gentle yoga poses relieve tension in the body and calm the mind. Sauna yoga is suitable for everyone regardless of age, size, gender or level of fitness and requires no previous yoga training experience.
