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!
