The Circuit

Leisurely move through our Nordic Circuit at your own pace. Try out the Finnish sauna, steam room, cold plunge pool, Nordic bucket, salt lounge, and outdoor patios. Alternate between hot and cold, then relax and repeat the circuit again.

Relax in the Ritual Sauna


Our Finnish-style, traditional, high-performing basswood sauna delivers dry heat up to 90°C. Ladle a splash of water on the rocks to bring up the humidity. Double stoves keep the room hot, low lights keep the mood relaxed.

Cold Plunge

Step into our 42” deep cold pool for a full-body chillout. Try to submerge part (or all) of your body for a minute or more. Cool your core temperature, breathe through the icy amazingness and feel endorphins release for a physical reboot. We keep it ice-water chilly at 9°C.

Salt Lounge

Bask in the glow of Himalayan salt blocks, known for anti-inflammatory properties and properties that help fight infection. This subtly warm room offers a peaceful recovery moment between cold and hot cycles of circuit. Put your feet up, close your eyes and breathe.
