Snow and Sand Yoga

Experience the soft touch of nature or the cold embrace of an extreme experience. Sand, snow and ice have dominated the local surroundings for centuries. Local lifestyle and livelihood have based on these elements, and at the hard times people have sought strength and peace from nature. This product combines easy yoga movements, winter and outdoors. When there’s no snow, the product changes into Sand Yoga that is based on same elements of tranquility, space and pure sea air. In front of the silence and infinity of the sea, you’ll become one with the nature.

Finnish Sauna

It's the Finnish innovation that the whole world knows. And now it's your chance to experience this uniquely Finnish activity! Enjoy spending time with your family and friends, as the heat of the sauna eases tired muscles and cleanses your skin. When spending time in a sauna, you should always listen to your body and do as you feel best. There is no such thing as "the right way" to bathe in the sauna, so don't be scared! For the first time, you could stay in for just a few minutes, depending on the temperature, and if you want to cool down, you can go outside – maybe even roll in the snow.
