Nordic Hut wants to develop beachside wellness in Swansea, and help our local community experience golden sunrises and sunsets, crisp winter mornings, moody skies, and stormy weather-fronts, all from the comfort of the seaside-sauna. The sauna represents a recharging of the body through heat, sweat and detox, as a powerful means to de-stress and battle winter depression. Here are just a few added benefits of the sauna: - Improved quality of sleep - Reduced chronic pain & fatigue - Improved exercise performance & muscle recovery - Improved cardiovascular health & reduced stroke risk - Improved overall brain health - Improved moisture barrier properties of the skin - Protection against dementia & Alzheimer’s - Protection against respiratory diseases & pneumonia - Detoxification & fat loss - A social place to connect with others Combining the sauna experience with the healing power of cold water, it is a wellbeing experience like no other, and will leave you on a natural high!

What we'll deliver:

  • A mobile sauna
  • A rainwater cold shower
  • A space where people can relax and recuperate
  • Events focused on exercise and relaxation
  • Workshops about 'green' wellness and living
  • Environmental events for families
  • Nutritious ash given to farmers for quality compost

Why it's a great idea:

Nordic Hut will enable more people to try out the healthy mixture og sea swimming and sauna. Even if people are not into sea swimming, they can still de-stress and enjoy an endorphin boost from the heat of the sauna. The project will bring a wide variety of health benefits to the community and allow people to relax in the wonderful surroundings of Swansea. I want to offer our community something to look forward to in the dark winter days. It will benefit local businesses as well, since the sauna can attract an audience that wouldn't otherwise be by the coast. Community mental and physical health is also a huge passion of mine. I therefore plan to arrange morning workouts/relaxation on the beach followed by a healthy snack. I have already partnered with local businesses (Hoogah, Brynmill Coffee House) and other local instructors for those events. Furthermore I plan to donate £1 from every membership to local and international charities and non-profit organisations.

Steps to get it done:

  • May - Start building the sauna
  • October - Let the season begin
