Sauna Etiquette

In this episode of Kivia: The Spirit of Sauna, we will discuss the do’s, the don’ts and the never-evers of sauna etiquette.

Your hosts, Alan Jalasjaa and Elissa Lansdell get right into the little sauna faux-pas, right up to the worst of the worst!  Elissa asks the hard questions, and Alan provides the guidance all in an effort to take the worry out of sauna use for newbies. After this episode, you can feel secure in knowing the expected behaviour in a traditional Finnish sauna here, or in Finland.
