Community and Mental Health
One of the most important and under-discussed benefits of the sauna: community. The sauna can be a private, personal area of relaxation and solitude but often it is an environment for socializing with family, friends, and soon-to-be friends. The sauna environment is conducive to open, intimate, quiet conversation, and laughter. If you have dipped your toes or dived in head first to sauna culture, you know what we’re talking about!
There are a few opportunities arising for our Sauna and it feels like we are at a crossroad. We have to make a decision where to steer and what to focus on.
The driving forces behind Kaarnasauna was always community and connection. Community is immunity! The sauna has such a transformative impact on your health not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well.
With a mental health emergency in our communities right across Australia, we would like to offer our services and products to the community here in our hood of Margaret River but not just stop there. We envision bringing Saunas to rural areas, men sheds, clubs and organisations.
We want to bring you back together with the people around you. Reconnect … OFFLINE
