  • Healthy steam bath procedure
  • Introduction to whisking

    Praktinė tema, kurioje susipažįstame su pirtinininko darbu. Pirmieji žingsniai į naują profesiją vyksta saugioje aplinkoje, geroje pirtyje, padedant patyrusiam dėstytojui.
    Dažniausiai šios temos dėstymas organizuojamas kaip pirties vakaras (praktinis užsiėmimas pirtyje) kurio metu dėstytojas supažindina su pagrindiniais praktinio pirtininko darbo garinėje momentais, juos parodo, o studentai tai išbando praktiškai. Tokiu būdu jie turi galimybę išbandyti save kaip būsimi pirtininkai ir geriau suprasti kokiame lygyje jie norėtų išmokti pirtininko amato.
