Family sauna: planning, building, exploitation. Webinar

Date: 2020-05-07, 21:00
Organizer : Lithuanian Bath Academy


Lockdown situation brought us back home. Public saunas are closed in most countries, so, many sauna lovers started to consider having their own private or family saunas. Having possibility to use your sauna as often, as you want and the way you like, can bring you a lot of benefits. First, sauna helps you to strengthen immune system (it seems, it becomes very important nowadays…), helps to maintain your physical and emotional health. Also, it is perfect way to relax, your “personal home SPA”. Finally, it could become a space for meeting your closest friends, family members. So, we can say, this is the time, when sauna comes back to our home, becomes more intimated, as it always was. 

Sauna project. Good steam bath.
Planing starts from nostalgy to old sauna...

Planning and building family sauna could become a great adventure, but first of all, it is a big challenge, bringing a lot of questions. What, where, how… end even why? Is family sauna different from public one? Can it be used for commercial purposes? How to meet different needs of ones`s family members? And a lot of other questions…

This seminar calls for people, who are planning to build their own saunas or have them already, yet look for ideas and inspirations.
