Event description

Description

Join the 612 Sauna Society for a special steam session at the Trailhead at Theodore Wirth Park!

The “Aufguss” is a German wellness ritual which is performed in the sauna by an Aufgussmeister (steam master). It involves pouring water mixed with essential oils on the hot stones of the sauna stove, which vaporizes and quickly spreads throughout the sauna. The Saunameister distributes the hot steam using different rhythmic towel movement techniques, creating an intense but also relaxing and enjoyable multi-sensory experience.

This special Aufguss session is open to everyone and hosted by Saunameister Megan McDonald. Megan will showcase her interpretation of the “Aufguss” ritual and answer all of your questions during breaks.

We look forward to welcoming you to participate in an experience that allows you to go deep and connect with yourself profoundly. Reserve your seat soon; reservations are limited.

Sauna Tips

Please arrive hydrated so you can enjoy the full benefits of your time on the bench.

Sauna promotes healthy blood flow by activation of the thermoregulatory system. Practicing full “rounds” will provide the full health benefits. A round consists of 10-20 mins in the hot room (your body will tell you when your time is up), followed by a cool-down period outside. Letting your body cool down between rounds by relaxing and cooling off at the rinse station will increase your circulation and provide the full physical and mental benefit of the experience. A typical sauna session consists of 3-4 rounds of this hot-cold treatment.
