Sauna Enhancing Rituals

In this episode of Kivia: The Spirit of Sauna, your hosts Alan Jalasjaa and Elissa Lansdell explore some of the rituals that enhance the sauna experience. Joined by Darren, a special guest and friend of Alan’s, we get to hear how ritual helped him embrace sauna.

Rituals could be anything from how you mentally prepare for sauna, to the act of cutting the wood and the starting of the fire… maybe it is what you eat or drink before or after, it could even be who you sauna with.

We salute the sauna rituals that make sauna a truly personal experience!
