  • Body reaction to heat

    Sveika pirtis

    Žmonės visais laikais aiškiai žinojo, kad garinė pirtis naikina nuovargio jausmą, pataiso savijautą ir sveikatą. Tačiau jos poveikio mechanizmai yra labai kompleksiniai ir tyrinėjami iki pat šių dienų.  Bendras pirties šilumos poveikio žmogaus organizmui supratimas yra labai svarbus ir būtinas kiekvienam žmogui, imančiam į rankas garo samtį ir kuriančiam jo šeimos narius, draugus ar klientus pirtyje šildantį pirties mikroklimatą.

    Kad pirtis būtų ne tik įdomi, bet ir saugi bei naudinga.

  • 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.

  • Plants in steam bath

    A lot of herbal and plant remedies are used in the Lithuanian sauna. Not only whisks but different herbal teas, infusions, scents, cosmetic masks. As soon as the pirtis door is opened, the pleasant aroma of plants gives off. There are bouquets of fragrant herbs in the ceiling, not just for the sake of beauty. And where are all the mysterious ointments, infusions, extracts, oils, powders, and other mysterious things that alchemists often juggle with bottles as experienced bathers, creating a whole bouquet of bath sensations ...

    Curious? This is our aim - get you acquainted with plants, herbal bath tools. This is a 2 hour theoretical course where we will discuss the most commonly used plants in the bath and the products made from them, as well as practical tips.
