LÖYLYMASTERS BASIC AUFGUSS COURSE
12/13th October 2019
£350 including certification
Loylymasters Aufguss Academy with Martijn and Steve
An aufguss is a sensational experience where water and iceballs with essential oils are evaporated by the hot stone of the sauna. An aufgussmaster distributes this steam with his towel through many different techniques to create the all loved heat shower.
This ritual is a total experience of the senses where the aufgussmaster creates a state of relaxing, vitalisation or focusses on health-supporting aspects such as detoxing, immune stimulation or airways. After this ritual, we cool down properly, enjoy a nice tea and feel absolutely reborn.
The basics of the aufguss ritual is the classic aufguss. Which can be influenced by various elements such as heat rising, heat distribution and waves, fragrance and body experience, light (could come from a fireplace), sound (can be silence) and the sauna master himself.
During this practical 2 days training, we analyze every element step by step to optimise these in creating the perfect aufguss.
