МЫ ПРОСТО ХОТИМ ПОПАРИТЬСЯ, ВСЕ! ----------------------------- Basta con la pasta! Andiamo alle terme! ( versione prezzo ridotto) Perche’ non ci sono piu’ le terme romane nell’area d’europa controllata in passato dalle legioni romane? Dove erano le legioni, la' erano anche le terme. Che e’ successo? E ‘ probabile che in seguito alle invasioni barbariche, i livelli di organizzazione (aquedotti) di sicurezza e di economia non fossero piu’ adeguati a sostenere strutture complesse come le terme. Va be’ consoliamoci della perdita e andiamo alle terme qui a New York. Se poi avete voglia della pasta, provate pilmeni con panna acida (tortellini alla panna) o seliotka (aringa affumicata). Un paio di colpi con le fascine di rami di quercia e dormirete come ghiri. Иду на вы! Но не мечом, а вениками! Мы стакановцы брумавого компрессирования! Брум=Broom=Веник. "А вообще, банные процедуры - это такой микро-массаж всех сосудов, основанный на контрасте низких и высоких температур, ни один массажист не добьется такого результата, как дает баня!" Ragazzi e ragazze andiamo a prendere una ventata di vapore rovente nella sauna russa e due o tre botte con le fronde di quercia e betulla! 皆さんこんにちは!ロシアのバニアに行きましょう! バーニャとは、ロシアの蒸し風呂である。フィンランドのサウナと比べて室温は低いものになっている。また、バーニャには蒸気浴そのものを指すニュアンスもある。 Banja bezeichnet ein russisches Dampfbad sowie ein traditionelles russisches Badehaus. Gehen wir zusammen zum Banja! "Die Zeremonie Russische Banja entspannt Sie auf wohlige Weise und entführt Sie für eine kurze Zeit in die Tundra." What to expect: Intense heat, hot steam, sweating, detox, jumping in freezing cold pool, slapping with oak leaf brooms, civilized conversation. Russian schwitz, Turkish haman, Finnish sauna, steam room, freezing cold pool, restaurant, outside garden lounge. Access to the banya facility is about $40.00 and that is on you. If you get a multi-visit pass (like 15 visit pass) it is much cheaper, and it can fall to about $20.00 per visit. Check the front desk for sales, promotions, special deals. Note: sauna expose the body to large variations in temperature. Therefore sauna is NOT recommended if you have high blood pressure or heart/circulation problems. Additionally use of mind altering substances or excessive consumption of alcohol is also strongly not recommended as the interaction of those with the intense heat and large change in body temperature may have strongly adverse effects on your health. "Thermae publica aedificia erant, ubi Romani lavabantur vel ludis gymnicis exercebantur vel cum amicis otium consumebant. In thermis multa membra continentur. Frigidarium locus erat, ubi balinea frigida erant, calidarium autem locus, ubi balinea calida. Deinde tepidarium locus erat,ubi viri paulisper consistebant inter frigidum et calidum balineum. Erant in thermis etiam natatoriae,palestrae ludis gymnicis aptae et sphaeristeria, ubi multi viri magno cum studio pila ludenbant. Non solum Romae sed in provinciarum oppidis thermae aedificabantur et maxime a patriciis frequentabantur."

Традиционная русская баня в Нью Йорке. Трудно, но постараемся!

Наши веники, веники по нью-йоркскому!

"А вообще, банные процедуры - это такой микро-массаж всех сосудов, основанный на контрасте низких и высоких температур, ни один массажист не добьется такого результата, как дает баня!"

"А ведь самый первый, сухой воздух протопленной бани нужно прочувствовать, испробовать на вкус, полежать на полке, блаженно расслабившись, постепенно перебираясь на более высокие уровни. И лишь затем, привыкнув к жару, понемножку увлажнять камни для образования пара. Теперь и веничек можно применить, пройтись им по рукам, ногам, спине. Хорошо, когда есть грамотные компаньоны в банном деле, которые и попариться помогут, и не нарушат гармонию пространства парной. Тогда в неё можно зайти два-три раза, каждый раз находя новые нюансы в неповторимой атмосфере бани."

IMPORTANT NOTICE: RUSSIAN BANYA CEREMONY AND RELATIVE PROCEDURES; THE MOST IMPORTANT PROCEDURE IS "ПАРЕНИЕ" - PARENIE - "TAKING THE STEAM", "FANNING THE HOT STEAM ONTO ONE'S BODY".

This meetup is about the traditional Russian banya and Finnish sauna. The main goal is improvement of one's physical and psychological health. This is achieved through exposure to hot steam, jumping in the freezing pool. The oak brooms are used to fan the hot steam close to one’s body (парение). As your body reacts to the change in temperature, your heart pumps to cool you and to warm you alternatively. The final effect is similar to very intense aerobic exercise. As your body struggles with these challenges, during those moments you forget temporarily all your worries and sorrows.The heavy sweating also promotes detoxification of the body. This is all this meetup offers.

IN A NUTSHELL:

After a preliminary period, during which you adjust your body to the steam room temperature, perform these simple steps:

Step 1 : Sit in the hot steam room, fan yourself with oak leaf brooms (парение), sweat profusely;

Step 2 : Take a shower and jump in the freezing cold pool;

Step 3 : Rest in the lounge area, drink water, tea, juice. ( No alcohol).

Repeat steps 1, 2 and 3 several times.

IF AT ANY TIME WHILE IN THE STEAM ROOM YOU FEEL DIZZY AND UNCONFORTABLE EXIT IMMEDIATELY AND TAKE A COLD SHOWER AND REST.

After you go back home, you will sleep like a baby.

For those not familiar with the traditional Russian banya culture, and possibly (it happens) having a distorted, hyper-sexualized image of the processes going on in the steam rooms, and the various procedures of the traditional Russian banya ceremony, please note the following paragraph:

There is NO sex, gay or straight, NO running around naked, NO body rubbing, NO porn, NO BDSM, NO tantra, NO Kama-Sutra, NO "everything goes" in the public steam rooms. If you expect that to take place in the public steam rooms, none of that will happen so please DO NOT JOIN THIS MEETUP IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SEXUAL ACTION IN SAUNAS, BATHHOUSES. Find another meetup meeting in private better suited to that expectation and pursue your happiness there in private. This way we shall all be more comfortable. When open to the public, the steam rooms are public places. All we do (all that is allowed) is sweat profusely in the hot steam with the help of oak leaves brooms, jump in the cold pool, rest, repeat, go home. HOT STEAM --> COLD POOL. THAT'S IT. МЫ ПРОСТО ХОТИМ ПОПАРИТЬСЯ, ВСЕ!

GUIDELINE FOR COMMENTS AND MESSAGING WITHIN THE MEETUP APPLICATION:

This meetup is about enjoying the traditional Russian banya. Consequently the social media aspect - comments, messages in the meetup application - is secondary, irrelevant. We are about hot steam and oak leaf twigs, not about exchanging messages on social media. We are busy enough in organizing the oak leaf twigs and hot steam part ( pine oil etc. for aroma)! Consequently we will not engage in explanations or comments about people, places, or engage in trivial exchanges via the meetup comments or messaging application. We will just announce the meetup. If interested in learning more, you can find details about the history and procedures of the traditional Russian banya ceremony here: http://russian-bath.com/ МЫ ПРОСТО ХОТИМ ПОПАРИТЬСЯ, ВСЕ!
