Come sweat and cleanse your mind, body and spirit in a rustic sauna, with rainwater splashes or fresh water hose! A great tonic for the body invigorating the lymphatic system to clear toxins.
You can book sauna at anytime to suit you or a small group of up to 6. You can have exclusive use of the space.
I can light sauna ahead and have it ready to enter. I can show you how to keep fire topped up from then on. You can decide whether to be naked or wear costumes. We ask you bring a towel to sit on and one for drying after. There is a covered area outside the shed where you can hang your clothes. There is a hose with fixed tap for cooling down and drinking water. You may wish to bring a bottle to fill for drinking, thought there is a jug and a few cups.
The Sauna is available during the day and evenings to men and women, for individuals and group bookings. Saunas here are enjoyed and booked by some regulars for example – 3 mums and their daughters (aged 10) every 6 weeks and a small group of friends who come monthly. There are some scheduled sessions which are advertised through our newsletters and also via emails to regular participants.
If it is your first visit we suggest that you come in the light so you can get your bearings, although there is a chain of lights to see your way out. A torch is also advised to find that missing sock!
To create aroma you can bring your favourite oils or bring dried lavender to sprinkle on top of the burner.
Kesty has been introduced and inspired by Latvian style saunas she has experienced at Sacred Arts Camp over the last three years. In the summer she uses herbs and foliage from native trees to brush and cleanse the body.
The Saunas take place in the Soulful Sauna Shed, in woodland under the stars close to Stroud town centre. The sauna is a short walk into woodland at the back of our house.
“It was so special to be there in the woods with the fire and the lights! esp at that time of day when the light is going down.” Cathy
